DR. GRIEVE has been Principal of the Lancashire Independent College since 1922.
He has held many varied and important positions in England, Scotland and India, including academic appointments at the Universities of Edinburgh and of Manchester, and he has also worked on the staffs of the ' Encyclopedia Biblica ' and the ' Encyclopedia Britannica.'
Lieut.-Col. Charles Bax is the head of the Salvation Army in Manchester, and Dr. Saloman represents the Jewish community, who have twelve synagogues in Manchester. As Dr. Hewlett Johnson, the Dean of Manchester, and founder and proprietor of ' The Interpreter,' which he edited from 1905-1024, also takes part, this may truly be described as a United Civic Week Service.
THE Besses o' the Barn ' band (which is taking part in the service) is Lancashire to the backbone in its history and traditions, since it sprang from the informal meetings of a group of musical cronies in the barn of a Lancashire inn more than a century ago, yet it is now known all over the world, having toured in America, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and even the Pacific Islands. It is now a great favourite with listeners all over Great Britain.

: THREE HALF-HOUR RECITALS

EDWARD ISAACS (Solo Pianoforte)
Allemande, Couranto Sarabande and Gigue from
BACH'S Keyboard Suites are strings of short
Movements in contrasted styles, most of them derived from the rhythms of the dance. His French Suites are written in the light style that the French then favoured in their music. It seems likely that they were written for Bach's second wife, to whom, as well as to a large brood of children, he was indefatigable in teaching music.

THE AUGMENTED STATION ORCHESTRA of Seventy Performers : Conductor, T. H. MORRISON
WHEN, in Pans, in 1828, the Irish actress
Harriet Smithson appeared in Romeo and Juliet, Berlioz determined to write a big dramatic work on the subject of the play, and to marry Harriet. He achieved both aims, though he had to wait five years before he won the actress.
Romeo and Juliet, written for Orchestra, Vocal Soloist and Chorus, may be described as half Cantata and half Symphony. This purely Orchestral Scherzo, its Fourth Movement, had as its stimulating idea the speech of Mercutio to Romeo in Act I., Scene 4.
0 then I see Queen Mab has been witli you,
She is the fairies' midwife, and she comes In shape no bigger than an agate-stone On the fore-finger of an alderman, Drawn with a team of little atomies
Athwart men's noses as they lie asleep.'

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.
