Tonight, youth makes its contribution to this series.
Kenneth A. Robinson is a seventeen-year-old schoolboy of Blaydon, County Durham, and an enthusiastic collector of gramophone records. He also plays first violin in the senior orchestra of the Newcastle Royal Grammar School, which has attracted national attention for its work in music. Three hundred boys are learning to play musical instruments, and more than two hundred are members of its various orchestras. The senior orchestra gave two broadcasts last year.
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.
