Games with words, arranged by Douglas R. Allan
For some time now listening children in schools have been contributing to these word games by making their own anthologies of poems and prose and asking the broadcasters to read them at the microphone. Close collaboration with listener and broadcaster in fact is the keynote of the broadcasts. Helen, Douglas, and Duncan, while they are really teaching listeners about adjectives, nouns, synonyms, and so on, are careful to turn the whole thing into a game.

: THE CHURCH OF SCOTLAND GENERAL ASSEMBLY

Opening ceremony from the Assembly Hall, Edinburgh
Although this year it will be robbed by the war of much of its traditional pomp and ceremony, the General Assembly will remain the outstanding event in the calendar of the Kirk of Scotland. Today the King sends the Lord High Commissioner as his representative to be treated as though he were His Majesty himself.
The ceremony includes the election of a new Moderator to lead the Church during the forthcoming year, the reading of the King's letter to the Assembly, and an address by the new Moderator-this year the Rev. Dr. J. R. Forgan of Trinity Church, Ayr.

: 'ADDRESS UNKNOWN'

A tragedy of Nazi Germany
Arranged for broadcasting by Peter Stucley from the book by Kressmann Taylor
Cast
The story opens at the end of 1932, three months before Hitler came into power
Production by Francis Dillon
This is the second time that this bitter indictment of Nazi Germany has been broadcast. It tells the story of how a Jew and a German in business partnership in America become parted when the German, infused with Nazi ideals, returns to his Fatherland. Jewish persecution figures in the play, the whole theme of which is the revenge of Max Eisenstein on his erstwhile friend.
Meinhart Maur , who played Eisenstein on the previous occasion, was one of the leading theatrical figures in Germany before he left to come to this country. He was closely associated with Max Reinhardt , and was known by reason of his brilliant character-acting as the ' man with a hundred faces '.
He was one of the leading Shakespearean actors in Berlin, in addition to which he played in Chekov and Ibsen and was a well-known figure on the Berlin radio. One of his specialities in German broadcasting was poetry-reading.
Since coming to Britain, Maur has appeared both on the stage and in films, where he has played many character parts and may be remembered for his performance in Korda's Rembrandt and more recently as the mulatto in Dr. Syn. In addition to his last broadcast in Address Unknown he has appeared in television, where he played in The Man with the Bowler Hat.

: 'Pot-Pourri Parisien'

French theatrical memories

The BBC Theatre Chorus (trained by Charles Groves)
The BBC Theatre Orchestra

The pot-pourri of hits from famous English musical shows is well established as a popular broadcasting item. Little, so far, however, has been heard of the theatre music of France, to which the whole of tonight's programme will be devoted.
Some French theatre composers, such as Offenbach, Messager, Lecocq, and Planquette are well known over here, but it is not only with these that the programme will be concerned. The operettas of Renaldo Hahn , for example, are little known over here. Likewise those of Louis Ganne. These two composers have reputations in this country as a song-writer and an orchestral composer respectively. The songs, by the way, will all be sung in English.

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.
