The Bristol University Choir and Orchestra
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.

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.

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.
