: 'DESPATCH FROM THE FRONT'

A recorded story of what has been happening at the Western Front
Recorded in France by the BBC News Observers
In future, despatches from the BBC Unit with the Allied Armies on the Western Front will be broadcast at this time every Saturday. Tonight's despatch is the thirty-first sent by them from France since the war began. Many of the previous thirty have been broadcast in the News, and this will still be done with shorter reports of day-to-day events.
Richard Dimbleby tells some of the experiences of the BBC Unit at the front in his article on page 5.

: 'MINE-SWEEPING'

by ' Naval Eyewitness'

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section B) leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Liszt's symphonic poem ' Les Preludes ' is based on Lamartine's ' Meditations poetiques ': ' What is life but a series of preludes to that unknown song whose initial solemn note is tolled by Death ? The enchanted dawn of every life is love ; but where is the destiny on whose first delicious joys some storm does not break ?-a storm whose deadly blast disperses youth's illusions, whose fatal bolt consumes its altar. And what soul, thus cruelly bruised when the tempest rolls away, seeks not to rest its memories in the calm of rural life ?
' Yet man allows himself not long to taste the quietness that first attracted him to Nature's lap ; but when the trumpet gives the signal he hastens to danger's post, whatever be the fight which draws him to its lists, that in the strife he may once more regain full knowledge of himself and all his strength.'

: Saturday at Nine-Thirty

presenting Evelyn Dall (by permission of Bert Ambrose), Webster Booth, and John Bentley in 'General Release'
Songs from current and forthcoming film issues with the Radio Graces, the BBC Theatre Chorus (trained by Charles Groves), the BBC Theatre Orchestra (leader, Tate Gilder). The programme arranged and conducted by Reginald Burston
Compere, Hugh Morton
Keen filmgoers, as well as many other listeners, will be interested to know that for this programme Reginald Burston has persuaded the producers and Jack Hylton to release the original scores of the new Band Waggon film, and Alexander Korda has released the original score of the incidental music for The Four Feathers.
Another point of interest about the production is that Evelyn Dall, the popular dance-band vocalist, is entering a new field, so far as sound broadcasting is concerned.

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.
