: Miss Celia Simpson: Flying over Europe

WITHOUT being in any way adventurous or even inordinately rich, one can nowadays travel all over Europe by air on well-organized, smoothly-running routes. Miss Simpson went from London to Paris (that is to say, their respective air ports— Croydon and Le Bourget), thence by Basle to Zurich. The next day's trip was by Munich to Vienna, and the rest of her tour included Prague, Dresden, Berlin, and Amsterdam. Her account of this flying visit to six different countries makes very interesting hearing for those of us whose travels are normally performed on a quieter scale.

WE all like Weber for his dramatic power, his effective use of the Orchestra, and his soaring tunes. He was uncommonly successful in catering, in the early nineteenth century, for the tastes of his country-men, which were for operas built on the legends and folk-talcs they loved -with, of course, a good .spice of romantic and chivalrous deeds and of homely sentiment. It was an excellent recipe, and Weber cooked some splendid dishes from it. The Marksman is perhaps the best of all his efforts on these lines. Tho melodies wo hear in its Overture— tender, gloomy, or menacing—come from the body of the work.

: 'THE LIARS'

An Original Comedy in Four Acts by HENRY ARTHUR JONES

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.
