A Dip into the Future.
The experiment will be tried of picking up, on a specially constructed receiving set, of Spirit Waves which are at their strongest on this one night of the year. The resulting sounds will be re-broadcast. We hope thus to introduce to our listeners some of the famous characters of history. We are to be helped in this experiment by the "2ZY" Orchestra and Mr. James Bernard.
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.
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.
