Opening with music descriptive of the ship slowly moving away from the dock, you soon hear 'La Paloma' (Spanish) ; 'Madelon' (French) ; ' Tirritomba ' and ' La Danza' (Italian); authentic Arabian melodies including ' Call from the Muezzin ' and ' Dance of the Dervishes ' ; Hindu melodies, and music from Cambodia, Siam and Java ; Chinese Temple music, a Wedding March, a Funeral March, a Chinese Love Song ; then to Mexico. for ' La Cucaracha', and to the Southern States of North America for old Plantation Songs and Spirituals. An extract from the ' Rhapsody in Blue ' leads to a pot-pourri of Sousa marches, with a short coda founded on ' God Save the King' and the notes BBC to close.
In order to obtain the characteristic sounds in the oriental music, the orchestra includes Mandoline, Guitar, Zither, Banjo, Cymbalom, Celesta, and many unusual percussion instruments.

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.
