Lawrence , when that extraordinary genius was preparing his plans to deal with the Arabian situation. Sir Ronald Storrs was not only a political collaborator with. but also a close friend of, Lawrence, and there are few men living more qualified to speak of one who was perhaps the most unique character of the last war.
Sir Ronald is an experienced microphone hand, having broadcast on many occasions, both to school, and in the evening programmes, on Near Eastern questions.

Elisabeth Welch
Lorely Dyer
Arnold Matters

The BBC Theatre Chorus
(trained by Charles Groves)

Leader, Tate Gilder
Conductor, Stanford Robinson
The very phrase ' Drury Lane production ' conjures up in the mind one word-Success. At no time has the tradition of this famous theatre been more thoroughly maintained than during the twelve years under review. Rose Marie , with its stupendous stage effects and tuneful score, ushered in a long series of musical successes. Among these, from which music and song will be heard tonight, are The Desert Song, Show Boat, Netc Moon , The Three Musketeers, Cavalcade, and, of course, the Ivor Novello series which concluded with The Dancing Years

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
