: ' 'Great Stories from History and Mythology-Sir Lancelot and the Holy Grail'

THE story of the Holy Grail is the most mystic and spiritual, and the story of Lancelot the most human, in the whole of the Arthurian legend as Malory records if. This afternoon's broadcast will tell how the vision of the Holy Grail came into the life of Lancelot, and how, after seeing it, he repented of his sin.

: DUETS FOR Two PIANOS

By BENJAMIN DALE and KATHLEEN DALE

: HOUSEHOLD TALK: Mr. LESLIE LEWIS' Mahogany and Some Newer Woods '

IN his two previous talks Mr. Leslie Lewis dealt with the use of walnut and oak, two of the oldest of the woods used in furnishing in England. The Victorians seized upon mahogany, and consecrated it as the only dignified material for the dining - room,
- whilst for drawing-rooms and bedrooms it became almost equally de regie. The ponderous magnificence of Victorian sideboards and half-testers has ceased to appeal to us, and mahogany itself has acquired from its associations a certain amount of opprobrium that it does not at all deserve, for it is a lovely wood, and it has many uses in the modern house. Some of these Mr. Lewis will describe this afternoon, as well as those of the newer woods that have lately come into vogue.

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
