: JAN BERENSKA AND HIS ORCHESTRA

from the Pump Room,
Leamington Spa
Jan Berenska and his orchestra of fifteen players have had a standing engagement at Leamington since 1933, playing at the Pump Room and in the summer at the Jephson Gardens,
Berenska is a well-known violinist and conductor ; he gave a recital in the Birmingham Town Hall at the age of fifteen, playing three instruments-piano, violin, and cello-and has made a celebrity tour with Peter Dawson.
Three or four years ago he formed his dance band, with which he has travelled all over England. He has also played first violin and accordion with Jack Wilson 's Versatile Five. He often sits up all night making the special orchestrations that many of his broadcasting numbers entail.

' Doing the washing at home '
Mrs. Daisy Pain
Economy plays an increasing part in the housewife's life these days, and more than ever must she do at home things that she was able previously to give over to professional hands. Mrs.
Daisy Pain is certainly fit to talk about home laundering, since for some years she ran her own laundry and worked in it. She comes to the microphone full of good advice and money-saving hints. Mrs. Pain is an experienced broadcaster, having given a great many morning talks to women in her time

' The Magic Apples'
A play for younger listeners by Marris Murray
Marris Murray is an Aberdeenshire author who is well known to radio audiences, particularly in Children's Hour. She wrote the popular Blue Falcon, and other fantastic plays, which she bases on stories from old Highland folk-lore. This story of the seven magic apples is in that tradition, too, and should be very popular with young listeners.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
