: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of The Finland Fund by the Rt. Hon. the Earl of Plymouth
On January 7 the first appeal was made for the Finland Fund (and magnificently answered) at a time when that unhappy country was embroiled in its war with Russia. That war is now over, but appalling hardship still afflicts Finland, and the plight of the 400,000 homeless Finns is one that must arouse the conscience of the world.
In the words of an old Finnish' proverb, ' Offer help to the man with the load while he is still on the hill, not after '.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to the Finland Fund, [address removed]

: PARRY JONES (tenor)

Songs by Peter Warlock
The countryman The first mercy
There is a lady sweet and kind Walking the woods Sleep
Consider
Yarmouth Fair
See ' This Week's Radio Music p. 6 ,
Parry Jones , one of the most versatile of all British singers, was born at Blaina, Monmouthshire, the son of a well-known Welsh amateur tenor. He studied under Albert Visetti at the Royal College of Music and later with Ernesto Colli in Milan.
Not only is Parry Jones a successful opera singer-he was a member of the D'Oyly Carte, the Royal Carl Rosa , and the British National opera companies-but he is a fine interpreter of German Iieder and French song, and has made a special study of the songs of British composers, particularly those of Peter Warlock.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section B)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Herbert Menges
Beethoven's first symphony, produced in 1800, shocked conservative musicians of the day by beginning out of the key.
The theme of the second movement is unusually sprightly for a slow movement. The Minuet is really a typical Beethoven scherzo. The finale starts with a joke ; violins gradually and hesitatingly build up a scale which leads into a movement of the utmost high spirits.

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.
