: Holidays at Home and Abroad—I : Mr. TEULON Porter, Round Yorkshire Corners

EXCEPT for those conservative people who go to the same place every year, and those adventurous ones who postpone their decision until the last possible moment, we are all beginning to think about arranging our holidays. This is the first of a series of talks designed to give some idea of the attractions of diverse ways of spending a holiday at home or abroad.

: M. Marcel Boulestin: Wastage in the Kitchen

To the English mind it may seem strange that a restaurateur should be a connoisseur and a patron of the arts. But M. Marcel Boulestin is a Frenchman, and holds the traditional opinion of his countrymen that food and drink are fit materials, even as are clay and pigment, for the creations of the artistic mind.
He knows all about wastage in the kitchen, but he is equally expert on a variety of subjects more highly regarded in this country including modern French painting and the works of Mr. Max Beerbohm, of which he has a fine collection.

The Sonatas of Beethoven

: The Victor Olof Sextet

ROSSINI had wonderful success with his Operas, but after the production of William Tell in 1829 Rossini produced no Opera and only one important work of any kind, his Stabat Mater.
For nearly forty years he lived as a retired gentleman, occupying himself in social diversions.
He wrote only some light pieces, mostly for Piano, and it was out of these that Respighi, an Italian Composer of today (born 1879) made the music for the toyshop Ballet known as La Boutique Fantasque ('fantasque' meaning 'odd,' 'quaint,' 'whimsical,' rather than 'fantastic').
The Ballet Music is that danced by the various dolls in the shop, who come to life and take a hand in the love-romance of two of their number. There are Cossack dances, a Can-can, an Italian Tarantella, a Polish Mazurka, and so on.

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.
