: Unusually Yours

John Rorke
With his flair for rousing old songs, John Rorke is likely to be 'unusually yours' this afternoon.
One of his greatest successes on the air was in that popular series 'Old Music-Halls' - a success he shared with Denis O'Neil, Tessa Deane , and Bertha Willmott , in a series that began in 1933, ran through the whole of 1934, and was revived the following year.

: ' WAR COMMENTARY

General Sir Hugh Elles , K.C.B..
K.C.M.G., K.C.V.O.
General Sir Hugh Jamieson Elles , who speaks for the Army every third week in this regular War Commentary, has had a distinguished career.
He has been described as the perfect soldier, a man not only of keen brain and intelligence, but of great personal courage and daring. He served through the South African War and throughout the Great War. In this he was the first officer to command the tanks-he himself led them into action at the Battle of Cambrai on November 20, 1917. He became Colonel Commandant of the Royal Tank Corps in 1934. He was Director of Military
Training at the War Office from 1930 to 1933, and Master General of Ordnance at the War Office from 1934 to 1938. He is now Regional Commissioner for South-West England.

: THE BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Leader, Laurance Turner
Conductor, Gideon Fagan
Mozart's so-called 'Haffner ' Symphony, No. 35, in D, originated in a serenade composed in 1782 at his father's request for a festivity at the house of his Salzburg friends, the Haffners. It was written in great haste--so great that when his father returned the score to him Mozart was ' quite surprised' at its effectiveness.
The six-movement Serenade was cut down to a symphony the following year by the omission of the introductory march and one of the minuets, leaving four movements, but the serenade-like character of part of the finale reminds one of the origin of the work.

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.
