: THE MUSIC-MAKERS' HALF-HOUR—19

' Combined forces—chorus, organ, and orchestra '
Dr. Reginald Jacques
To illustrate his talk this evening, Dr. Reginald Jacques will have the assistance of a chorus, string orchestra, and organ, and will deal particularly with four well-known choruses. His talk should be of interest to all music-makers, both singers and instrumentalists alike, as he will give many hints on how to make the best use of forces such as these.
This programme is the last of the present series, but some of the most popular programmes will be revived later in a modified form.

: ' AUGUST 8, 1918—THE BLACK DAY OF THE GERMAN ARMY'

by Tom Wintringham
Produced by Laurence Gilliam
August 8, 1918, was rightly described by General Ludendorff as ' The Black Day' of the German Army. On that day the Allies of the last war began their final assault on the Hindenburg line, and took the first of their ultimate decisive steps to victory. Captain Tom Wintringham , the well-known military writer, and author of ' Deadlock War' and ' Spanish Captain ', has been at pains in his research for this programme.
Dramatic scenes are set at the headquarters of both the German and the Allied High Commands, and other scenes will be set in the trenches. On that occasion the German defeat followed a gigantic offensive, and many listening to this programme may ask themselves, ' Does history repeat itself ? '

H. Fraser-Simson , who wrote the music for the record-breaking Maid of the Mountains, is one of the most versatile and successful of British theatre composers in musical comedy, revue, and ballet. His part songs, such as ' My Sweet Sweeting ', are charmingly arranged, and in collaboration with A. A. Milne he has helped to immortalise Christopher Robin. This programme will demonstrate the wide range of his activities, and will tell listeners of the man himself.

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.
