: Mrs. HERBERT RICHARDSON:

'A Londoner's Winter Two Hundred Years Ago '
It is a commonplace thai winters today are not what they once were. You have only to look at the Christmas cards you will receive this year and contrast the pictures on them with the weather outside. Or is it all a fine old tradition that has its roots in nothing more real than our wishes ? Mrs. Richardson, who for years has made a study (both as lecturer and writer) of early journalism, will tell us tonight what conclusions she has arrived at in this matter, by examining the actual press reports of Georgian days.

BACH'S concertos for solo instruments were so often rearranged by his own hand for other instruments that only* three concertos for violin have come down to the present day in their original form. This one in E Major is not only much the most popular of the three, but quite easily one of the favourites among all his instrumental music. The other two are in A Minor nnd in G. All three have slow movements which are among the most beautiful of Bach's instrumental pieces, and while the other movements in the A Minor are perhaps a little more stern than some of his purely orchestral pieces, the whole of this E Major one is joyous and in the brightest of spirits.

: Mr. Willson Disher: Astley's — The Circus Dickens knew

CIRCUSES, more than most things, 'are not what they were.' Some would go so far as to say that there has never been a circus since John Astley's famous circus stood behind St. Thomas Hospital in the Westminster Bridge Road. There in a building that was both circus and theatre nightly performances were given that resounded with cannon-roars, horse-tramping, and the noise of battle. There it was that Ducrow, the greatest showman England ever saw, nightly ruled this host with a discipline that was as effective as it was rigid. Dickens has given an eloquent picture of the Circus in 'Sketches by Boz,' and other writers, including Thackeray, have paid tribute. Mr. Willson Disher, known to readers of The Radio Times for his articles on vaudeville and variety, etc., will describe some of the characters that made Astley's so world-famed.

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
