The Torquay Municipal Orchestra was restarted after the war by Ernest W. Goss , the conductor. Normally it consists of thirty performers, but it is considerably augmented during the annual festival held in the autumn. In addition to light and popular programmes the orchestra gives symphony and other classical concerts at which many well-known artists appear.
Harold F. Petts , who leads the Orchestra, was born in Rochdale. For twenty years he lived in Leicester, taking an active part in the musical life of the district. For several years he has been leading the Torquay Municipal Orchestra, and he has appeared frequently as a soloist.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
