: 'HOW GERMAN SPIES WORK'

Bernard Newman
I there is one figure more than another that captures the public imagination, and, if he be an enemy, the public loathing, it is the spy.
Bernard Newman knows most things there are to know about spies in general, and about the German spy system in particular. He had opportunities of studying this during the last war, and he draws an impressive picture of the enormous and intricate workings of the German Secret Service. Part of the broadcast will be in the form of a dialogue such as might take place in any public-house, designed to show just how a clever spy can extract information without arousing suspicion.

: FLORENCE AUSTRAL

(soprano) with BBC Orchestra (Section B
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
As a child in the Australian Bush, Florence Austral was more at home with horses than with music. She used to sing little. songs as an amateur, and then for the fun of the thing entered for a competitive musical festival in her teens. She was heard by the director of the .Melbourne Conservatoire and became a student there. She came to England and studied at the London School of Opera ; went to New York and. had the unique distinction of being offered without previous experience an engagement at the Metropolitan Opera House-which she turned down.
She made her operatic debut in 1922 at Covent Garden as Briinnhilde in The Valkyrie and achieved a sensational success. She is recognised as one of the greatest operatic singers of our time

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.
