Everybody Swing!

An Anatomy of Jazz
The Saxophone speaks
In the early days of popular jazz, the saxophone was usually regarded as the most characteristic of all jazz instruments. Since then ever growing brass teams have encroached more and more upon the sax's original predominance. The sax section, however, still provides the melodic background for a jazz orchestra, and in the majority of' sweet' bands the saxophones still play a more important part than the brass.
In this instalment of ' Anatomy of Jazz HENRY REED AND HIS ORCHESTRA will display the orchestral importance of the sax section (not forgetting the clarinets).

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.
