: ' SING ME A SONG WITH SOCIAL SIGNIFICANCE'

Presented by Leslie Perowne
While it is probably true that nine songs out of ten are love songs, there remains the other tenth to include songs on other subjects. Some of the best songs ever written have been ' social' songs-songs about work, about play, about snobs, and about earning a living.
. Leslie Perowne has been busy getting together some of the best of these songs. Some of them are grave, while others are gay-all of them reflect some aspect or other of social life. On the one hand you will hear Norman Long singing ' The Council schools are good enough for me' and on the other that brilliant little artist Molly Picon singing her ' Song of the Tenement '

: Emlyn Williams and Peggy Ashcroft in 'I WAS HITLER'S PRISONER'

by Stefan Lorant
Cast
The action starts in Germany in 1933 Adaptation and production by Stephen Potter
For six months after his arrest in 1933 Stefan Lorant, then editor of a Munich weekly paper, was subjected to all the rigours of prison life in Nazi Germany. His paper was impartial but not anti-Nazi, and the reasons for his arrest were wholly inexplicable to him.
Tonight you will hear dramatised the story that he told in his successful book ' I was Hitler's prisoner '. Lorant wrote his story with underemphasis rather than over-emphasis, and it was certainly the lack of melodramatics that not only made it a best-seller, but underlined the horrors of German prison life.

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.
