: Mr. H. BuRRows: 'The Grandeur that was Rome'

THE long arm of Rome reached all over Britain, but the only village in Lancashiro that hears really tangible evidence of Roman occupation is that on tho banks of the Ribble that appears in Domesday Book as Ribelcastre. Its modern name is Ribchester, and recent excavations have proved even more conclusively than licforo the fact that it was once the site of a Roman camp.

: AN EMPIRE DAY CONCERT

The STATION ORCHESTRA, conducted by T. H. MORR0N
IN 1894 the Royal Academy of Musci attained flireo-score-year,3 and ten, and its Principal, Sir Alexander Mae , henzie, composed the Britannia Overture ;.s a celebration of the event ; and as the Academy's President at that timo was the ' Sailor Prince,' the Duke of Saxo Coburg and Gotha, there could lie no happier idea than to found the Overture, in part, on British sea tunes. Two of these, the College Hornpipe and Rule, Britannia ! ai'o used. as well as three other tunes of Mackenzie's own invention. In some oa?<?s the tunes are. combined — as when, near the end, the Composer neatly weaves together the dignified Rule, Britannia ! time and the perky Hornpipe.

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.
