: Elizabeth Pollock: Impressions

Elizabeth Pollock made her first appearance on the stage at Wyndham's Theatre in 1916, as the probationer in "A Kiss for Cinderella". Apart from her many successes in plays - she was Evelyn Lovejoy in "Lord Richard in the Pantry", Lady Caroline in "Dear Brutus", and Betty in "The Party" - she is a gifted mimic whose impressions have delighted huge audiences.

Philip Thornton

This is Philip Thornton's second talk in this series. He will show and describe the functions of modem components of an orchestra such as the bassoon, oboe, clarinet, and flute. Instruments such as these have a long history, and their evolution can be traced by a survey of musical instruments of the past and also those of the present day, some of them weird to Western ears, that are still used in different parts of the world. Viewers will also see and hear examples of early flutes; the ophicleide; the zurba, which comes from Turkey; the gajas which comes from Bessarabia; the Bulgarian duduk and kaval; the bansri, which comes from India; and the agwaal, an instrument that is to be found in the Atlas Mountains.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
