: 'Cello Solos by Beatrice Eveline. ' The Great King ' (G. Bernard Rutley). A Ride in Britain's Strongest Express Engine '—A Railway Dialogue by Cecil J. Allen

: Miss LILIAN BARKER, ' Bad to Worse, or Bad to Better '

AS the only woman Governor of a State penal institution, Miss Lilian Barker speaks with exceptional authority. When, in 1923, she became Governor of the Borstal Institution for Girls, at Aylesbury, she had already had much experience of handling women and girls. She had been in turn Principal of an L.C.C. Women's Institute, Commandant of a section of the Women's Legion, and Principal Officer in the Training Section of the Ministry of Labour; but she is probably best remembered as Lady Superintendent at the Woolwich Arsenal, where she did wonderful work during the worst of the air-raid period in the War.

: BACH

Played by JAMES CHING
Prelude from English Suite in F Major Minuet from French Suite in D Minor
Prelude and Fugue in F Minor from Book II of the ' 48 ' LAST night we heard a Partita or set of short pieces by Bach. The sets of pieces called
Suites are much like the Partitas in general style. Why a certain collection of the Suites that was published after Bach's death cams, to bo known as 'English' is not known for certain.
The Prelude to the Suite in F (the Fourth of the six Suites named English ') is a lively, long and well-worked-out piece in woven style, generally in two strands or ' voices,' but sometimes in three or four—one voice constantly starting some little tune, and another then taking it over imitatively.
The 'French-' Suites were probably so called on account of their light character. The dances are all short, and in general slighter than tlfose in the Partitas and ' 'English' Suites.
The F minor Prelude in the Second Book is one of the most sensitively beautiful and expressive movements in the ' Forty-eight.' The poetry of the three-note falling motif, out of which so much of it is made, almost becomes articulate.
The Fugue has a rather long theme (' Subject') with a fall of seven notes at one point, that, often repeated in various parts of the piece, gives just a touch of pathos to it.

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.
