: An Orchestral Concert

Relayed from the National Museum of Wales.
National Orchestra of Wales

The comedy by Goldini Le Baruffe Chiozzotte deals with the petty wrangles and breaches of the peace in a market-town, and the Overture reflects the vivacious humour in the midst of which the troublous scenes arc enacted.

The youth Phaeton, having been permitted by his father the Sun to drive the fiery chariot, loses control of the horses. The car of flame is approaching the earth, and must set it on fire if nothing can intervene. At the last instant Jupiter hurls a thunderbolt, saving the universe, but destroying the rash youth.
This is the story Saint-Saens illustrates in his Symphonic Poem.

: Romance Unlimited (Second Edition)

More Microphone Matrimonials by Dorothy Eaves.
The Victims: Blonde and Brunette, John Rorke, James Whigham, The Station Orchestra

The firm of Romance Unlimited, incorporated in the Year One, is the most successful company of its kind. Trade increases every year, and the Head Office is kept constantly busy turning out new romances. Mr. Cupid puts down his success to the fact that he personally attends to every case, and spares neither time nor energy in bringing each affair to its proper conclusion.
On this particular morning in September, Puck, the office boy, is the first to arrive. He is seated in his Chief's chair, with his feet on his Chief's desk, reading his Chief's morning paper.
Upon the entry of Miss Chance, Puck's whistling comes to an abrupt end.

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.
