: Writers of Today-Mr.' LIAM O'FLAHERTY reading a short story. S.B. from Belfast

WHAT Sean O'Casey , the author of Juno and the Paycock and The Plough and the Stars, is to the modern Irish stage, Liam O'Flaherty is to modern Irish fiction. Completely modern, realistic to the point of brutality, and markedly influenced by the work of the Russians and of Eugene O'Neill , his novels and short stories have attracted more attention than any other prose written in Ireland in recent years. Particularly notable were 'The Black Soul,' ' Thy Neighbour's Wife,' and ' The Informer.' a grim. nightmare story of one night's happenings in the Dublin underworld.

: FAY MARBÉ

THE AMERICAN REVUE Star will sing
MISS FAY
MARBÉ is a newcomer to the London microphone, but not to radio and its technique. For a year she has been broadcasting regularly every week from two important American stations, during which time she made the interesting discovery that broadcasting does not, as is so often asserted, ' kill' a song. A case in point is ' There's more to the kiss than a song composed specially for her by George Gershwin three years ago, which remains one of the most popular in her repertoire. She now wants to make the acquaintance of the British public. and thinks that the radio is the best way in which this can be done.
THE DON COSSACK QUARTET
National Songs
THE Don Cossacks have done as much as anyone to spread the cult of Russian choral music. From folk-songs to the songs of Rimsky-Korsakov, their repertoire is complete, and their execution has been praised by critics in every capital in Europe.

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.
