: THE BATH PUMP ROOM ORCHESTRA

Leader, Norman Rouse
Conductor, Maurice Miles from the Pump Room, Bath The history of the Bath Pump
Room Orchestra goes back for some considerable time: there is a record of a ' band of musik ', consisting of five players, in 1671. This orchestra performed in what is now the Orange Grove, under a large tree. In 1704 some of the physicians of Bath requested Beau Nash to allow the band to play in the Pump Room. Although the music drew large attendances, the subscriptions of the patrons were sometimes insufficient, and in 1770 a notice appeared in the Bath papers stating that the music had ceased. However, the expenses were defrayed, and the music restored. In 1783 another notice was issued; the Council decided that a book should be put up at the Pump Room for extra subscriptions, and by this means the music was again restored.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
