: 'Holidays at Home and Abroad' —I. Mr. H. V. MORTON : 'The Cathedral Cities of England'

THIS is the first of Mr. Morton's series of holiday talks, widening out from the British Isles to some of the more accessible holiday-haunts abroad. His first three talks will deal with England, Scotland, and Ireland, the present talk being devoted to the Cathedral Cities of England. The whole series is designed to help listeners in the perplexing and important annual question, Where shall we spend our holiday ? As the author of ' In Search of England,' and many other books attractively descriptive of the less known parts of the British Isles, Mr. Morton is an admirable guide.

: Mr. H. J. MASSINGHAM : ' Adventures among

Birds-I, Birds of the South '
MR. MASSINGHAM'S wide knowledge of birds, their habits, their haunts, their characteristics, etc., coupled with his vivid style as an author, make him extremely suited to play this new rôle of listeners' guide to Birdland. His series, which covers birds of most classes, opens with a general talk on the birds of the south. A characteristic note, and one well calculated to win approval, is Mr. Massingham's frequent interpolation, into his more serious. background, of vivid personal adventures and snatches of intimate lore. Mr. Massingham is a son of the late H. W. Massingham , the well-known editor and essayist; he has written several books on Natural History, and he has edited the ' Seventeenth Century Poets.'

: Chamber Music

CECIL BONVALOT (Violin) ; CEDRIC SHARPE
(Violoncello); SUZANNE DE LIVET (Pianoforte)
4 LTHOUGH Haydn is claimed by Vienna as one of its own musicians, he was by birth a Croat, and all his life the Hungarian folk music had a special interest for him. It crops up in many places in his works ; even the 'Emperor's Hymn,' in one of the best known string quartets, was originally a Croat melody. The so-called ' Gipsy Rondo ,' which is the last movement of this thoroughly happy Trio, is probaby the best known example of his Hungarian music to which he has given that name. It is a vivid translation into chamber music of the verve and gusto of which the native Hungarian music is so full.

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.
