Everybody Swing

An Anatomy of Jazz
Presented by HENRY REED AND HIS ORCHESTRA with BRENT WOOD
Spot-light on Rhythm
The basis of jazz is rhythm and the basis of the jazz band is the rhythm section. The standard rhythm section of today consists of piano, guitar, string bass, and drums, though this combination was only arrived at after a number of experiments.
The more showy sections in the band, which we have already dealt with (the saxes and the brass) not only look to the rhythm team to provide rock-steady tempo, but also may derive individual inspiration from the perfect unity of the rhythmic foundation.
A brilliant rhythm section often 'sends' the entire band. 'Send' is the fans' word for 'inspire' and in this programme Henry Reed and his Orchestra will show you how 'sending' is achieved.

Orchestra with Brent Wood
Farewell to Swing
In this series it has been sought to explain swing jazz. The main elements of swing have, we hope, been covered in the seven preceding instalments : Let's Go, The Saxophone Speaks, Spotlight on Rhythm, The Brass Talks, Dots and Dixie, Swinging the Blues, and ' Jam Session'.
With that fairly comprehensive schedule completed, Henry Reed and his Orchestra propose to abandon exposition in this final programme and concentrate solely upon swinging.

Swinging the Blues
It used to be thought by the uninitiated that swing was synonymous with noisy playing in a fast tempo. That belief has been gradually killed by the ever increasing number of slow and seductive swing performances. Many such examples can be found in the idiom of the blues-the basis and the essence of negro music. In this programme Henry Reed and his Orchestra, set out to achieve exactly what the title indicates.

'FROG FABLE'

A repeat performance of Æsop's well-known fable told in the manner of a ' Silly Symphony ', with words and music by Henry Reed
This was originally given in the Children's Hour on September 11,
1937, and now the frogs that figure in Aisop's Fables are to broadcast for evening listeners. Henry Reed has woven a web of charming and amusing music, of the ' Silly Symphony' type, round the story.

FURTHER FAMILIAR FABLES

4— "Ware Wolf
Aisop's stories about the Wolf told in a new way
With words and music by Henry Reed
The music played by a section of The BBC Northern Orchestra
Leader, Alfred Barker
Conducted by H. Foster Clark
Produced by David Porter
Today the Wolf joins the company: of frogs, fox, mice, and ass, whose adventures have been retold in dramatic form with a background of music specially written by Henry Reed. Listeners will hear the fables of the Shepherd Boy and the Wolf, the Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, and the Wolf's adventures with the lamb, the lion, the dog, and the nurse. In case these tales have been forgotten, it would be as well for listeners to read through them before the broadcast.

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.
