We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
THIS afternoon's programme is one of the series of National Programmes arranged through the International Society of Radiophony, whoso headquarters are at Geneva. This afternoon most of the broadcasting stations in Europe will give programmes in honour of Sweden.
The British programme, which has the advantage of being introduced by H.E. the Swedish Minister, Baron Palrnstiema, consists largely of orchestral music and songs, but other points of interest to British listeners are not ignored, though it is impossible in a programme of this length and character to treat them as adequately as they deserve.
Sir Henry Penson , the Chairman of the Anglo-
Swedish Society in London, whose acquaintance with Sweden during the last thirty years is probably more intimate than that of any other Englishman, will talk about some of his most vivid impressions of the countryside and of the people. Swedish literature will be represented by a reading of a short story of Verner von
Heidenstam (a winner of the coveted Nobel Prize), and of an excerpt from Ms famous book ' The Charles Men.'
It is hoped that listeners will get from this programme some definite impressions, mental, and perhaps visual, too, of Sweden and its artistic importance in the twentieth century.


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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
