: The Band of His Majesty's Royal Marines

Plymouth Division
(by permission of Brigadier H. G. Grant, A.D.C.)
Conducted by Captain F. J. Ricketts, Director of Music, Royal Marines
Alexander Henderson (bass)
The conductor of this band, Captain F. J. Ricketts, is perhaps better known as Kenneth Alford, composer of the famous war-time march 'Colonel Bogey', which was written at Fort George, Inverness-shire, in 1913. For nineteen years he was conductor of the band of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, and was appointed director of music to the Royal Marines in succession to B. Walton O'Donnell in 1927. In addition to many well-known military marches, Captain Ricketts has composed a good deal of popular music. His numerous arrangements for military bands range from complete standard works, such as symphonies and overtures, to popular numbers, including a fantasia on his own marches entitled 'Colonel Bogey on Parade'.

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.
