: The Height of the Brow

That one man's meat is another man's poison is very clearly demonstrated in musical appreciation.
The item which is classified as old-fashioned and delightful by one man is modern and hateful to another.
This programme begins, where most of us began, with Nelly Bly. Listeners are asked to let us know if they follow the uphill road 'Yes, to the very end.'

Group I.
This group shows 'easy' music, but it does not follow that connoisseurs will listen to it disdainfully. Nearly everyone has a tender spot for the things of childhood, and we all passed that way once.
The Station Orchestra
Two-step, 'Nelly Bly'

Group II.
The music in this group will appeal to those who like to be able to make pictures of what they hear. This group shows what may be considered to be the best type of popular music.
This group gives examples of modern music, different in treatment because different in intention from the music of the other groups.


Musicians: The Station Orchestra

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.
