: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult After taking his degree at Oxford, Sir Adrian Boult went to Leipzig and joined the conducting class of Arthur Nikisch. In 1916 he made his debut in London conducting the L.S.O. at Queen's HalL His first notable exploit, however, was in 1919 when he conducted the Diaghilev Russian Ballet at the Alhambra at short notice. Later he became conductor of the City of Birmingham Orchestra and in 1930 joined the BBC as Director of Music. Since that time he has many outstanding achievements to his credit, notably the creating of the BBC Symphony Orchestra into one of the finest orchestras in the world.

: Adverbs

Another new parlour game for listeners
Presented by Neil Munro
Actors v. Actresses
The idea is that each side has to act according to an adverb they have chosen. If the people whose turn it is to ask questions find their replies are bawled at them at the tops of the players' voices, it does not take a Sherlock Holmes to deduce that the word is 'loudly'. Questioners are allowed three guesses and lose points accordingly.

: 'DOCTOR JOHNSON'

A feature programme compiled from material supplied by S. C. Roberts
The cast includes
D. A. Clarke-Smith ; Carleton Hobbs ; Patric Curwen ; Barbara Couper ;
Thea Holme ; Cecil Trouncer ; Laidman Browne ; Harold Scott
This programme, which has been broadcast twice before, once in 1936 and once in 1937, does not attempt to present anything approaching a life of Dr. Johnson. What it does aim to do, however, is to give listeners some idea of the character of that extraordinary man. The Doctor's sayings have lost none of their piquancy or aptness with the passing of years, and you will have the opportunity of hearing a wide selection of these in the variety of scenes to be broadcast.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
