: Olympic Games

A commentary on the opening ceremony, from the Olympic Stadium, Berlin
Today's broadcast of the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games, which were last held in Los Angeles in 1932, will start with a five minutes' description by T. Woodrooffe , and then listeners will hear Herr Hitler officially declaring the games open. A fanfare, specially composed by Heger, will follow; the Olympic banner will be hoisted ; a battery will fire the salute ; and pigeons will be released in the arena.
At 5.3 the final relay runner, carrying the torch that has been handed from runner to runner (the first runner started from Olympia, Greece) is due to enter the stadium where he will use the actual torch to light the Olympic fire.
At 5.5 an olive branch will be handed over, then the Olympic hymn, composed by Richard Strauss , will be sung; the flagbearers of the fifty-three nations competing will step forward and give the Olympic oath. After the singing of Handel's ' Hallelujah ', the standard-bearers will make their entry ; finally the competitors will leave the stadium, and the broadcast will close with music. The band consists of 450 instrumentalists and 1,000 singers. This broadcast will be followed by daily running commentaries and eyewitness accounts, full particulars of which will be announced later.

With the Western Brothers (' old school ties '), Jack Barty (White Horse Inn), Phyllis Robbins (famous for her former association with Henry Hall and the BBC Dance Orchestra), Isey Bonn, (discovered by John Sharman in East London), and Sydney Baynes and his Band, listeners should enjoy an hour of Variety equal to any given in the winter.

: Coney Island

A Programme from America
By courtesy of the Columbia Broadcasting System
At 10 o'clock tonight (5 p.m. in New York) listeners are to hear a relay direct from Coney Island, New York's vast seaside amusement park. It is situated on Long Island, and thousands in New
York flock to it whenever they can escape from the city.
Summer in New York is very hot, and has been especially hot this year, and Coney Island is thronged with people seeking some cooler breezes than they ever get in their New York tenements. They are there for pleasure, for recreation, and hope to find, if they can, a little room in the sea.
A trip on ' the mile sky chaser', and a broadcast from the ' roller coaster ' (a two-seater version of the Dodgems) ; ' Man-in-the-street' interviews on First Avenue, Luna Park ; the cries of barkers, the music, shooting, and other side-shows..... These will all be included in a vivid programme that will show British listeners at first-hand how America enjoys itself.
Immediately afterwards, although
British listeners will not hear it, American listeners are to enjoy a ten minutes' relay from Blackpool in exchange.
An impression of Coney Island by Walter Rault will be found on page 6.

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.
