: The Week's Good Cause

Appeal on behalf of the London Hospital, Whitechapel, by the Viscount Knutsford

There is little need by now to say anything about Lord Knutsford, the 'King of Beggars,' who has raised more money for charity than any other man alive; and as for the London Hospital (of which he has been Chairman since 1890), everybody knows that it is the largest in England, and a centre of pioneer work and research. What is not so well known is that its endowments are in no way proportionate to its work, and that for no less than four-fifths of its income it depends entirely on the generosity of the public.

: An Orchestral Concert

The Wireless Orchestra (Leader, S. KNEALE KELLEY)
Conducted by JOHN ANSELL
Heroic March
Solemn Overture
THE Heroic March was the Composer's tribute to a friend, the painter Henri Regnault, who was killed in the Siege of Paris in 1871. It suggests the indomitable spirit and energy of brave men whose pride and courage sustain them in defeat.
THIS, one of the most sanguinary of all Operas (for all the chief characters are killed off), was commissioned for the Imperial Theatre at St. Petersburg and produced in 1882. Alvaro, the hero, has accidentally killed the father of his sweetheart. Carlo, the maiden's brother, seeks vengeance, and, finding Alvaro in a monastery, so taunts him that he eventually agrees to fight a duel.
March of the Giants
Flower Fairies
Dance of the Gnomes
Moonbeam Fairies
Dance of the Witches
OTHELLO is the wonderful work of the seventy-three years' old Verdi. In this powerful Scene, Iago sings his famous 'Creed' - 'I believe in a cruel God.' He blames his Creator for his admitted wickedness, and declares that he fears nothing, for death ends all, and Heaven is an ancient lie.
THE Norwegian Composer-Conductor, Violinist, Johann Svendsen, who died a few years before the War, wrote several large-scale compositions, including two Symphonies. He is less of a ' 'nationalist' Composer than his contemporary, Grieg. In such pieces as the Norwegian Artists' Carnival, however, the spirit of his native country is happily present. This, and the four Norwegian Rhapsodies by which he is well known, belong to his earlier years of residence in Christiania. He was Conductor of its Musical Association when he was in the mid-thirties. This was a time of small things for him. He had spent some years wandering over Europe, picking up a living in various musical occupations, and was glad to settle down at home (though he not infrequently undertook tours abroad during the rest of his life).

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.
