: The Week's Good Cause

The Rev A. Sinclair Burton - Appeal on behalf of the Seamen's Friendly Society of St. Paul.
The Society was founded in 1884 by the late Father Hopkins. At its headquarters,
The Abbey, Alton, Hants, old or infirm and destitute Merchant Seamen are given a permanent home. The London house - The Priory, Hyde Vale, Greenwich, is a free home for destitute Merchant Seamen of all ratings seeking ships, or sick ones attending hospital as out-patients.
Some five hundred and twenty seafarers. were helped by the Society last year. Its special aim is to give each man the opportunity of making a fresh start, not merely to assist him and then return him to the same conditions.
Funds are urgently needed for the general work. and subscriptions towards the permanent Abbey Buildings for the old sailors. Address: [address removed].

: ERNEST SLANEY ('Cello) with Octet Accompaniment

Violoncello Concerto in A Minor .. Saint-Saens


With String Quartet and Pianoforte Accompaniment


Suite, ' Water Music' Handel, arr. Hamilton Harty
SCHUMANN'S happy marriage at the age of thirty seems to have been a wonderful incentive to composition. In one form especially, in song, he poured out his emotions. Over a hundred songs were composed in that first year of married life. Among them was a cycle of sixteen songs, entitled The Poet's Lore (Dichterliebe, in German). The words are by Heine, the poet who. forbidden to live in his native land, spent some time in London and ended his days in France, in bodily suffering.
The songs to be sung are the First, Second,
Third. Fourth, Fifth and Seventh in the cycle.
The first five (all very short) tell of the growth of love in the poet's heart for ' the peerless, the rarest, the fairest, the dearest,' and (in the Fourth song) of his poignant memory of her declaration ' I love but thee,' that moves him to tears. The Fifth also recalls that wonderful sweet hour.'
In the Seventh song his love is lost to him.
The music tells of his pain, and the strength with which he meets it.

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.
