: ' THE CHARCOAL-BURNERS '

A symposium of short talks to describe the wartime revival of an ancient craft. The speakers will include a forester, a charcoal kiln stoker, and a wood distiller
At first sight listeners may think that a discussion on charcoal-burning would have a very remote bearing on present-day life, but actually charcoal is an extremely important war supply. It is used not only for artists' pencils and in hop oasts, but also in blast furnaces.
As you will probably hear, charcoal is said to be better if it is slowly burnt in the wood instead of being
retort:burned; the old-fashioned method gives long, deep-black, unbroken sticks.

: BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section A) leader Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Kathleen Long (piano)
Although the exact date of Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto is not known, this masterpiece certainly comes at the period of Fidelio, the Violin Concerto, and the Fourth and Fifth Symphonies.
The whole work shows Beethoven in his most romantic mood. The dialogue in the slow movement between the strings in unison-harsh and adamantine and the piano, which replies with some of the loveliest phrases ever written for the instrument, suggested to Schumann the idea of Orpheus pleading with the powers of the underworld for his Eurydice.
Kathleen Long , who comes of a musical family, started playing in public at the age of eight, and at the age of thirteen she won a scholarship to the Royal College of Music.
Apart from her solo work, she is a pianist with the English Ensemble, which does a great deal of broadcasting, and she has also been heard at the microphone in sonata recitals with Adila Fachiri , who is a great-niece of Joachim.
ORCHESTRA
Choreographic poem: La Valse Ravel
Ravel's ' La Valse ' is a very brilliant exposition of the spirit of the Strauss waltz, the harmonic treatment of which is certainly not without a touch of cynicism. It is described as a ' choreographic poem in one act' and was first produced at the Theatre de l'Opera, Paris, in 1929. The book and the choreography are by Bronislava Nijinska and the setting and costumes by Alexandre Benois. The principal dancers were originally Ida Rubin stein as She and Anatole Vilzak as He. The action takes place in a magnificent ballroom characteristic of the Third Empire.

: 'THE TRAITOR'

with " Ronald Squire and Jeanne de Casalis
An adaptation by M. H. Allen from a story by W. Somerset Maugham
Produced by Val Gielgud
Ronald Squire will again broadcast in the part of Ashenden, amateur British Secret Service agent during the last war. The scene of this episode is set in Lucerne. Mrs. Caypor , German wife of the British-born but anti-British spy, Grantley Caypor (the ' Traitor ' of the title), will be played by the famous creator of ' Mrs. Feather'. She does far more than teach German to Ashenden, alias Somerville-she is the pathetic figure in the story.

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.
