: Mr. HUBERT GRIFFITHS, 'The Amateur Actor'

THE amateur stage is more and more engrossing the attention of those seriously interested in the drama, who begin to despair of the West-end commercial theatre and its satellite, the touring company that does fifth-rate plays in a fifth-rate way. Mr. Hubert Griffiths , the well-known dramatic critic and author of that remarkable play Tunnel Trench, is well qualified to talk of this interesting symptom in the evolution of a real English drama.


Unknown: Mr. Hubert Griffiths


Summer Night
THE poetry of a balmy evening in June is in this, the Fifth Study. In one place the Composer writes, over a trill, the words ' like a flute.' The sentiment rises to real passion near the end. Then a cadenza brings back the calm mood, and a page of delicate soft music draws the piece to a richly-harmonized ending.


Played By: Edward Mitchell

: Mr. W. P. PYCRAFT. 'The Coloration of Animals—V.I, Flowers of the Field '

THIS is the last of the series of talks on Nature's Camouflage in which the Assistant-Keeper in the Natural History Museum has explored one of the most fascinating topics in all Nature, study—the use of colour and marking for such diverse purposes as concealment, allurement, attraction, and warning.

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.
