Leader, Maurice Alexander
Conductor, Arthur Warrell from the Colston Hall, Bristol
Arthur Warrell is Lecturer in Music at the University of Bristol, where he conducts the Choir, the Orchestra, and the Madrigal Singers, all of whom are heard on the air from time to time. He is very much interested in the work of the Workers' Educational Association, and has for some years lectured during the winter for that body at the Bristol Folk House.
His compositions are numerous: twice he has had the honour of conducting his work at Queen's Hall, and a few years ago he conducted the Cambridge University Musical Society when they gave the first performance of his ' Lyke Wake Dirge '. He is particularly interested in choral music, and the majority of his compositions are for chorus, either alone, or with piano or orchestra.

Harry Evans and his Band with Reg Mitchell
In addition to Greta Gave , the Glamour Girl, and Marriott Edgar , a comedian with a remarkable gift for writing humorous Lancashire monologues (many of which have become world famous through the lips of Stanley Holloway), this cabaret bill is notable for the inclusion of Joan Miller. A ' straight' actress as well as a cabaret artist, she is known to television viewers for her weekly appearances in ' Picture Page '. She has taken part in this feature regularly ever since the first edition was televised from Alexandra Palace in November, 1936.
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.
