EVERYBODY SWING

An Anatomy of Jazz
Presented by HENRY REED AND HIS ORCHESTRA with BRENT WOOD
' Dots and Dixie '
All early jazz was extemporised and the orchestrators, who came later, sought to produce the effect of improvisation by their arrangements. But as orchestrated jazz gradually became the rule, there was an inevitable change both of method and of atmosphere. In this. programme the riotous jazz busking - which began with Dixie style and is still practised in up-to-date fashion by contemporary virtuosi-will be contrasted with the more considered technique adopted by modern jazz arrangers.

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.
