: ' I WAS A GERMAN OFFICER FORTY YEARS AGO'

Lt.-Col. B. G. Baker , D.S.O.
When he was a young man Colonel Baker followed the example of many other late-Victorian youngsters and went to Germany to receive a German military education. Discipline was severe in the Dresden Military College, but while there Colonel Baker assimilated a rare knowledge of the German soldier as exemplified in cadets from every province of the country. After leaving the College he served for a time in the German Army, and this morning he is going to describe some of his experiences while on manoeuvres in Alsace at the end of the last century.

: 'UNUSUALLY YOURS'

John Rorke
With his flair for old songs, rousing songs, chorus songs, John Rorke is likely to be ' unusually yours' this afternoon. Revue, musical comedy, single acts, double acts, all come alike to him. Perhaps one of his greatest successes on the air was in that fine favourite series ' Old Music-Halls'
--a success he shared with Denis O'Neil , Tessa Deane , and Bertha Wilmott , in a series that began in 1933, ran through the whole of 1934, and was revived the following year.

: BRAHMS

Sonata in F, Op. 99, for violoncello and pianoforte
1 Allegro vivace. 2 Adagio affettuoso. 3 Allegro appassionato. 4 Allegro molto played by William Pleeth (violoncello) and Margaret Good (pianoforte)
If the cello has been neglected with regard to concertos, at least it has been rather better served in the way of sonatas, particularly by the nineteenth-century composers.
Brahms's Sonata No. 2, in F, con-posed in 1887, is a magnificent piece of writing, terse and dramatic in expression and concentrated in thought, and the entire range of the cello is exploited with telling effect. The piano part is no less big in design and the music contains a fair number of expression marks that require careful interpretation.

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.
