: 'HORACE COLE-KING OF JOKERS'

A talk by Joseph Hone
Horace Cole justly gained his crown as ' King of Jokers ', though practical joking was by no means his only interest. He was a keenly sensitive man, and particularly devoted to art and poetry. It is, however, of Cole, the great hoaxer, that Joseph Hone will speak this afternoon.
Cole perpetrated practical jokes without number. Some were small ones involving only his friends, but others were on a truly grand scale,involving in one case-which Joseph Hone will describe at length-the Foreign Office, the Admiralty, and half the British Fleet. The official reception at Weymouth by the Navy of four Abyssinian princes in 1910 must rank as the greatest hoax ever carried out.

: THE BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Leader, Laurance Turner
Conductor, Gideon Fagan
Borodin's unfinished Symphony No. 3 in A minor was subjected to an unknown amount of tinkering at the not unsympathetic hands of Alexander Glazunov , who at any rate orchestrated the work delightfully. It is in two movements: the brilliant bustling scherzo in 5-8 time and the lovely little trio (based on material originally intended for the opera Prince Igor) were completed by Borodin-in a string quartet version included in the well-known collection of Russian quartet pieces, 1 Fridays '.
It is pleasant, lyrical, easy-going music-not to be compared, however, either intellectually or imaginatively, with the opening movements of Borodin's two earlier symphonies, but it possesses its own quiet charm.

: Five at the George

A play by Stuart Ready
Produced by Edward Wilkinson
Scene: The George
This is a revival of a play produced in the North some years ago. It tells the story of how five people, who were friends of an Indian Army colonel who had died in somewhat mysterious circumstances, receive telegrams asking them to meet the sender at an inn not far from the scene of the colonel's death.
Needless to say, talk among the five revolves round the death of the colonel. All of them had been with him at his house on the night he died. Then they discover that the inn where they are drinking has been closed for several weeks.
Who killed the colonel? A foolish slip by one of the five produces the answer to this question and the climax of the play.

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.
