Characters in order of speaking :
Mrs. Pemberton's comfortable, although not luxurious, sitting-room is the scene of a little conflict between domesticity and genius. The result is as reassuring as it is unexpected.

: ORGAN RECITAL by Dr. SCHWEITZER

Relayed from the Bishopsgato Institute
DR. SCHWEITZER (born in 1875) is one of the most remarkable men in music, for besides writing a scholarly book on Bach that has taken rank as a foundational work, and undertaking (with Widor) an edition of the works of the master, ho has been a teacher of theology in the University of Strasbourg, and has done distinguished work as a medical missionary in Africa ; to this he has devoted himself for some ten years, performing most valuable research work, which has made his name internationally famous. It is safe to say that no musician's visits are more warmly appreciated than those-now very infrequent— of this eminent scholar and man of science, who has so signally devoted himself to the noblest of careers in the service of humanity.

: 'I Remember'—Rt. Hon. Lord RONALD-' SHAY: 'Recollections of Lord Curzon '

WHEN the Marquess Curzon of Kedleston died in 1925, one of the most interesting figures passed out of the world of affairs. From tho day when he was labelled by an Oxford epigram as a very superior person ' to the time when he returned from India in viceregal glory to enter on a new career as Foreign Secretary, ho was a character whose extraordinary success was redeemed from dullness by his equally extraordinary personal characteristics-for he was in many ways an eighteenth-century oligarch, born out of his time. Tonight Lord Ronaldshay, another Indian proconsul,' who recently published the first volume of the official biography of Lord Curzon, will give some reminiscences of that remarkable man.

The Lincoln Imp
THE composer says of this piece, which he
' dedicated with affectionate esteem to Sir
Edward. Elgar, O.M.' : 'Concerning the Imp in Lincoln Cathedral, there is a legend that, when wandering bent upon mischief, he chanced to fall in with the North-East wind, riding upon it until the Cathedral was sighted. Bidding the North-East wind await his return, the Imp proceeded within. Vaulting the benches, he espied the bell rope, jangled the bells, strummed upon tho organ, tore the vestments to shreds, and broko the brazen candlesticks across his knees.
' Intending to work his crowning mischief upon the altar, he found his way barred by an angel; putting out his hand to stroke the wonderful shining hair, he was, for his presumption, immediately turned to stone.
' Tho North-East wind still waits for him outside.'

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.
