THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
FELIX WEINGARTNER , known to us best as a distinguished conductor, one whoso readings of the great classics, especially, are regarded as authoritative, has himself composed much in larger and smaller forms. His songs often have a simplicity and directness of appeal such as the composers of today seldom achieve, and it is difficult to understand why they are not much more often sung.
Although the whole world of music hopes that he still has many years of active service before him, he has already published his autobiography, revealing a wonderfully simple and benevolent outlook on life, and giving many interesting particulars of the world's music in his own younger days.

: BAND

CORNELIUS, author, poet, and composer, and one of the leaders of the self-styled ' New German' School of music which gathered round Liszt at Weimar in the middle of last century, had been dead a good many years before his work began to receive anything like the recognition which is its duo. Even now, neither his poetry nor his music takes the position to which their many fine qualities entitle them. A relative of the great painter whose namesake he was, he was destined first for the stage, and his studies for that career must have been of real help to him afterwards, in his composition for the theatre. But besides his operas and bigger works,he left many beautiful songs and choral pieces, which are held in much warmer affection now than they over were in his own lifetime. He was barely fifty when he died in his native town of Mainz in 1874. BETTER known to us in this country by his work as music critic and editor of musical papers, Joseph Deems Taylor has a distinguished place in his own country among the native composers. A graduate of Now York University, ho is besides a great linguist and has made many valuable translations of songs from French,
German, Italian, and Russian. Here, as native born Americans often do, he has turned to a subject from the Old Country; as listoners have already hoard, there are pieces with the same name by our own native composers.

: Buried Treasure of the World-II, Captain MALCOLM CAMPBELL, ' Looking for Treasure on Cocoa Island'

FOR those ' in the know,' Cocos Island calls up the most romantic possibilities of almost any island in the world. Cocos, the isle of buried treasure, is a tiny island some 400 miles off the coast of Costa Rica, in the Pacific. Somewhere under its cliffs and sands, among the jungle of grasses there, lies treasure to the value of millions of pounds, gold and silver, weapons and images, jewels and plate. One of the treasure troves dates back to 1685, when Captain Edward Davis , partner of Dampier and one of the most famous buccaneers of his time, had sacked the city of Leon, in Nicaragua. Another dates from the early nineteenth century, and is the treasure of the pirate Benito Bonito. Whilst a third, and the greatest of them all, is the famous treasure of the city of Lima, which was buried on Cocos in about 1821 by a certain Captain Thompson, a Scots morchant shipper who turned pirate and joined Bonito. Captain Malcolm Campbell, the famous racing motorist, will describe how ho went in search of this stupendous treasure.

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.
