: RABBITS ON THE LAWN'

W. King Wilson
It is not generally realised that up to the outbreak of war millions of tame rabbits were imported from Poland, Scandinavia, and Belgium. The war has cut off these supplies, with the result that neither the meat for food nor the furs for garments can now be obtained from these sources.
It will take a large number ot additional rabbit-keepers in this country to replace the normal supplies that used to come to the market. Salesmen are anxious for larger supplies to meet next season's demands, and they want rabit flesh and fur prepared in the proper way.
In his talk this afternoon W. King
Wilson will deal with every practical aspect of the question of rearing rabbits in hutches or on the lawn.

: 'WINSOME WINNIE' A romantic drama and 'THE BILLIARD-ROOM MYSTERY'

or ' Who do you think did it ? '
A murder mystery
Adapted from Stephen Leacock 's stories by V. C. Clinton-Baddeley
Produced by John Cheatle
In all fairness to the actors who are playing in this production their names are not being published
These two rich burlesques have been broadcast before. Winsome Winnie is every kind of penny-novelette melodrama rolled into one and The Billiard-Room Mystery is very nearly a detective story to end all detective stories. In each, villainy is punished and virtue rewarded-or are they Most people have no time to decide, they are too busy laughing.

: Music by Rumanian Composers

The BBC Orchestra (Section A)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Rumanian rhapsody No. 2, in D
Enesco
Divertissement, Op. 3S.....Mihalovici
1 Generique. 2 Aria. 3 Capriccio militare. 4 Interlude. 5 Final
Rumanian rhapsody No. 1..Golestan Rumania has not produced any great composers in the past, but this evening's concert will give some idea of the creative powers of three of Rumania's leading composers of today.
Georges Enesco is considered to be the founder and leader of the Rumanian school of composers. Born in 1881, he studied at the Viennk and Paris Conservatoires, one of his professors at the latter being Fauri. He is also famous as being the teacher of Yehudi Menuhin.
Marcel Mihalovici , the youngest of the group, was born in 1898 and studied with d'Indy in Paris. One of his compositions ' Introduction to a symphonic movement' was awarded the National Prize founded by Enesco for the encouragement of Rumanian composers.
Stan Golestan was born in 1876. He also studied in Paris at the Conservatoire and at the Schola Cantorum, where he came under the influence of d'Indy and Dukas. For some years he was music critic It Figaro.

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.

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.
