' The Place we Live In '
Edith E. Macqueen
Here is the first broadcast of a new course that will be of particular interest to city youngsters living for the first time in the country. There are many new and interesting things for them to see and do, and much for them to find out. These broadcasts will encourage the children to keep ears and eyes wide open and begin really to understand and enjoy the places where they find themselves. The broadcasts will contain short dramatic interludes dealing with all sorts of aspects of rural life.
Today you will be taken to a village smithy where some of the town children have come to watch the smith at his work.

: 'THE SLEEPING BEAUTY'

A fairy tale retold, with words and music by Henry Reed
Produced by David Porter
Listeners have heard The Six Servants and The Shoes that were danced into holes. The Sleeping Beauty completes the triology of fairy plays, written and devised by Henry Reed , who has also written the music for each. Listeners are familiar with his Fables, which have long been popular in the North and were one of the most successful items in the recent series ' Roundabout '. These little fairy plays are on much the same lines, but are essentially romantic and keep faithfully to the stories frjm which they are taken. Henry Reed was once pianist with Henry Hall 's Band at Gleneagles.

: REVERIE

The BBC Theatre Orchestra (leader, Tate Gilder ), conductor, Stanford Robinson
'Reverie', a programme of quiet music late in the evening, designed to soothe rather than to exhilarate, proved to be one of the most appealing of the Theatre Orchestra's programmes.
Tate Gilder will once again be heard playing the signature tune
' E Canta il Grillo' (The Cricket Sings). This charming little Italian song by Billi seems to intrigue listeners very much and many have written to enquire its name. It certainly sets very aptly the mood of the programme.

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.
