: AN ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

Conducted by Ian Whyte
Ian Whyte, who is still in his thirties, is one of the most distinguished musicians in Glasgow and one of the finest conductors in Britain. His alert, expressive, and vigorous' personality gives his interpretative work a freshness and vitality that are distinctive. As a composer he has accomplished a great deal of fine work in almost every branch of composition, and in transcribing and arranging Scottish traditional music, of which he has done an enormous amount, he has shown himself to be a sensitive and brilliant re-creative musician.

: Maggie Teyte (soprano)

Maggie Teyte is among the first of our singers, whether in opera or light opera. She has excelled as Melisande and Madam Butterfly, and equally as Lady Mary Carlyle in the musical version of "Monsieur Beaucaire".
After two years at the Royal College of Music, she studied singing in Paris under Jean de Reszke.
Two years later she made her debut at a Sunday night concert at Monte Carlo with Paderewski, and at the age of eighteen she made her name as Melisande at the Opera-Comique in Paris.

: Dudley Rolph in ' TELL HER THE TRUTH'

A comedy with music from the original play ' Nothing but the Truth'
Lyrics by R. P. Weston and Bert Lee. Music by Jack Waller and Joseph Tunbridge. Radio adaptation by Martyn C. Webster
Cast
Narrator, Geoffrey Wincott
The Revue Chorus, the BBC Variety Orchestra, leader Frank Cantell , conductor Charles Shadwell
Production by Martyn C. Webster
At long last the BBC has secured the broadcasting rights of this famous stage comedy.
A wager that involves speaking nothing but the truth for twenty-four hours might seem fairly easy to win, but when not even ' white ' lies are permitted, the task begins to be formidable. This is, however, the undertaking that confronts the hero of this uproarious series of episodes, and the difficulty of it may be well imagined when it is explained that this hero is junior partner in a firm of land agents who want to sell a property on the top of a crumbling sea cliff.

: 'TRUST YE IN THE LORD FOR EVER'

: NEWS IN GAELIC

: INFORMATION TO THE ENEMY'

by G. R. Rainier
A highly imaginative play for broadcasting intended to show that ' careless talk may give away vital secrets'
Characters you will hear are: German Intelligence Officers; Admiral von Reitberg, Captain Crawford, R.N., various Naval Intelligence Officers, Air - Marshal Stewart , Flight - Lieutenant Peter Medhurst , Flying-Officer Carbrooke, enemy agents, workmen, chorus girls, and Cabinet ministers played by members of the BBC
Repertory Company
Production by Peter Creswell
Here is a play to drive home the significance of careless talk and its dangers to a country at war. All too innocent are the men and women in public-house and railway train, and at dinner table, who, in this dramatic object lesson, let fall the vital scraps of information that may be overheard and correlated by the enemy.
The occasion in question in this play is that of the trials of a new German battleship that are the signal for the putting into operation of a British bomber aeroplane of entirely new design. The pilot, the rear gunner, and a man in the aircraft factory are all guilty,of careless talk, the result of which is all too clearly shown in the climax of this play.

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.
