A RECITAL

by Joan Alexander (soprano)
Joan Alexander is rather a rarity a singer who is very fond of accompanying other singers. She studied music at the age of six, and four years later she had actually embarked on a career as an accompanist. At the Scottish National Academy of Music she first won a scholarship and then the Bach and Broadwood medals. Scottish listeners who have seen some of the Academy's operatic productions will remember her fine playing of the harpsichord.

A Radio Version of the new film ' ALEXANDER'S RAGTIME BAND'

Film Corporation)
Music and Lyrics by Irvin Berlin

Radio adaptation by B. Martin Marks
Radio score by Jack Beaver

Orchestra

Harry Foster, solo pianist
Production by Douglas Moodie
In this radio version of the new Twentieth Century-Fox picture Alexander's Ragtime Band, listeners will be treated to a cavalcade of jazz masterpieces from that greatest of jazz masters, Irving Berlin.
It is twenty-seven years now since the young Berlin took America by storm with ' Alexander's Ragtime Band ', the tune that is rightly claimed as being the forefather of all modern dance-band rhythm. Since then he has written hits by the hundred.
The film story follows the fortunes of a young violinist from the trials of running his first little orchestra, which he called Alexander's Ragtime Band, through war-time concerts, to triumphant success in America and Europe, culminating in a concert at the Carnegie Hall, New York. The film will not be released to the public until tomorrow, so this programme is unique in affording listeners a radio pre-view of what is likely to be one of the hits of the season.
' Alexander's Ragtime Band will be broadcast again on Thursday at 6.20 in the Regional programme

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.
