From the Winter Gardens, Bournemouth
Part 1
The Bournemouth Municipal Orchestra is celebrating its Diamond Jubilee this year: it was founded in 1893, and gave its first concert on May 22 that year, under the direction of the late Sir Dan Godfrey, who remained its conductor until his retirement in 1934. Since then, its conductors have been Richard Austin, Montague Birch, Rudolf Schwarz, and Charles Groves, who left the BBC Northern Orchestra to take over three years ago.
Two of the items in the programme have particular associations with the Orchestra: Sir Arnold Bax's tone-poem 'Tintagel' is one of the many works by British composers which received their first performance at Bournemouth (the actual date was October 20, 1921), and the Orchestra can claim the honour of having been the first in this country to have performed all Tchaikovsky's symphonies, including the 'Manfred' Symphony, as long ago as the late eighteen-nineties.The Fourth Symphony was first heard in Bournemouth on February 22, 1898.
(Deryck Cooke)

Overture: Roman Carnival - Berlioz

Homes for Export by Alastair Dunnett
Since the war our export trade in prefabricated buildings of all kinds has increased enormously. We have sent factory-made schools, houses, and hospitals to a number of countries where urban populations are expanding And even in this country the term ' pre-fab ' nu longer confures up a flimsy temporary house. Alastair Dunnett has been investigating the growth and development of the prefabricated building industry and describes its progress and hopes for the future.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
