NEXT Monday is Armistice Day-the day on which we try to express our gratitude to the survivors of the Great War. This evening Earl Jellicoe , who, as President of the British Legion, has a special claim to speak on this occasion, will say a few words about this year's Poppy Day. He will be accompanied in the studio by one of the holders of the Victoria Cross who are dining this evening with the Prince of Wales.

Accompanist, Mr. GEORGE Ison
IN the second act of Puccini's deeply tragic opera
Tosca, the heroine implores divine aid in her many griefs, asking in this expressive song why so much unhappiness should fall upon her. ' I have lived for art, and for love,' she sings, ' I , have given of my wealth to the Church and have helped the poor.'

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
