: M. Louis QUIEVREUX, A Belgian Listener

' Why I like the British People '
MR. QUIEVREUX is a Belgian journalist who listens regularly to foreign stations and particularly to British stations. In his talk he will give reasons for his preference. Mr. Quievreux conveys his enthusiasms in a highly characteristic speech, having a fine courage of his convictions.

: Mr. Stanley Casson: New Light on Ancient Greece: VI, Olympia

In his last talk Mr. Casson will deal with Olympia, perhaps the most famous of all ancient Greek towns, where the great athletic contests were held and where the finest examples of Greek art were set up in honour of the gods. It is almost impossible to rate these Olympic festivals too highly; Olympiads were a universal method of reckoning time, and to have won at Olympia made a man famous, not only in his own particular state, but throughout all Hellas. Olympia has revealed many surprising 'finds' to modern archaeologists.

: A RECITAL

By DALE SMITH (Baritone) and PEGGY COCHRANE
(Violin)
DALE SMITH EVEN the listener to whom a song is interesting chiefly because of its text, because he can understand from the words ' what it is aU about,' can hear for himself, that the accompaniment to Who is Sylvia ? has a large share in the whole impression which the song makes. It is no mere melody with harmonies supporting it; the pianoforte part is quite definitely one with the voice, like a picture in which the background has every bit as important a share as the figures which catch the beholder's eye first. In his earlier days especially,
Schubert chose the poems for his songs without any very great regard for their worth or beauty; but, in the songs which belong to his last years, the poems are almost always worthy of his music, such as might well inspire those melodies. One feels, indeed, that the songs must have been definitely inspired by the poems, not, as is sometimes the case with his more youthful work, that almost any good-going versa might start him off on an equally good-going tune. This setting of a Shakespeare lyric is of itself so beautiful a melody as to be popular in all sorts of arrangements ; listeners have heard it often as an instrumental piece.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
