played by Clarence Barber at the theatre organ
Clarence Barber was one of the first to broadcast on a cinema organ, which he did from the Piccadilly Theatre, Manchester. Organist of the New Victoria Cinema, Bradford, he is a Lancashire man, having been bom in a village near Ashton-under-Lyne. There can have been little doubt in the minds of his friends that he was destined for a musical career when he began playing the piano at the age of five. He came to London some eleven years ago to the New Gallery Cinema, afterwards moving to Finsbury Park, to Rochester, and then to the Chelsea Gaumont.

: BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section A) leader Paul Beard
Conducted by Desire Defauw
Howard Ferguson is a young composer and pianist who comes from Northern Ireland. He was a pupil and friend of the late Harold Samuel. His compositions include a Sonata for violin and piano (listeners will have heard the first broadcast performance of this work last Sunday), a Sonata for clarinet and piano, and the ' Partita' for orchestra to be heard this evening, which is one of his most important works. It was broadcast in 1938 for the first time. It is a favourite composition of Desire Defauw and he has conducted it on several occasions with great success in Brussels and elsewhere.
Daphnis and Chloe
Ravel's most successful attempt to use a large canvas was the ballet Daphnis and Chloe written for Diaghilev's Russian Ballet. The second suite is unusually lavish in orchestral colouring and provides an interesting contrast to the economy of treatment displayed in the ' Mother Goose ' suite and elsewhere. The story of the ballet is founded on the famous pastoral by the Greek sophist Longus, who lived during the second or third century B.C. Two English translations have been made, one in 1657 by George Thornley and the other in our own time by George Moore.

: DOUBLE BILL

' Tobermory by Saki adapted by E. M. Delafield
Characters
Miss Resker ; Lady Blemley; Lady Pellington ; Major Barfield ; Sir Wilfred Blemley ; Mr.
Appin ; Tobermory and ' For the Third Time by Norman Edwards
Characters
Horace ; Marie ; waiter
Produced by John Cheatle
These two short plays are both of them light and entertaining.
Tobermory is the name of a cat.
But it is a very special kind of cat. It talks. It intrudes upon a house-party and is invited to contribute its comments on humanity.
For the Third Time presents the Eternal Triangle with a difference, and a piquant ending that will leave you guessing-and laughing.
' Saki' was the pen-name of H. H. Munro , a popular satirist of the days before the last war. Norman Edwards has written many plays for radio, notably Quarrel Island and The Queen of Baltimore.

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.
