: Miss ANN SPICE. ‘ A Bookshelf of Old Favourites—V, “ The Last Days of Pompeii," by Lylton ’

BULWER LYTTON is another of the great company of authors whose fame withers after their death. Now ho is little road, but in his own day no novelist was more popular, and with admirable versatility he changed his subjects and his styles as fast as reading fash'ons changed. In The Last Days of Pompeii' he exploits a current interest in classical antiquity, and whether his acquaintance with Pompcian life was very extensive or not, he certainly made out of it a most entertaining book.

: Miss Eileen Power: Europe in the Middle Ages: The Dark Ages

This talk is the first of four in which Miss J. Eileen Power will carry on the story of Europe from the fall of the Roman Empire, where Mr. Norman Baynes left it, to the birth of Modern Europe, where Mr. Somervell will take it up. She will deal with the mediæval period, which was not merely a bridge between the ancient and the modern world, but had a distinct and notable civilization of its own; starting today with the Dark Ages and their unifying forces - the Catholic Church, the Frankish kingdom (which became the Holy Roman Empire) and the feudal system.

: BAND Ballet Suite from ‘The Seasons’ .. Glazounov

GLAZOUNOV (born in 1865) is probably the most distinguished living Russian composer who does not work on very advanced ' modernist ' lines.
He is a master of orchestral effect, and in his ballets and other light pieces he has produced music that follows very agreeably, yet with distinct individuality of its own; in the Tchaikovsky tradition.
The Seasons, a Suite of orchestral pieces (now to be heard in an arrangement for Military Band), was originally written for a Ballet. There arc four pieces: (1) Barcarolle and Variations ; (2) Waltz of the Poppies and Cornflowers ; (3) Slow Movement ; (4) Bacchanal. (London and Daventry, 5XX)

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.
