: 'HERE WE COME, BRITAIN!'

Empire soldiers entertain in a parade of camp concerts given by Overseas contingents stationed in the United Kingdom
From the plains of Canada, from the bush of Australia and New Zealand, from the rocky crags of Newfoundland, and the sun-parched plains of India, Britain's sons under arms have flocked to her in her hour of need. Today many of them are seeing for the first time the English countryside, of which they have heard so much, and from which the forebears of so many of them came. A field-day on moor or meadowland, the march back along lanes fragrant with honeysuckle, a sing-song in camp, when the men return in spirit for a while to their native lands and sing their own songs so rousingly.
Some of these songs-the French
Canadians' ' Alouette', Newfoundland's sea-shanties, Indian folk songs -we shall hear in the first programme of this kind to be broadcast. There will be microphones at camp concerts by the New Zealanders, the Canadians, the Indians, and, it is hoped, the Australians.

: BACH

English Suite No. 3, in G minor
Prelude — Allemande — Courante —
Sarabande-Gavottes 1 and 2-Gigue played by . Lucille Wallace (harpsichord)
Parry's summing-up of the qualities of Bach's English Suites can hardly be bettered: ' The immense scope of all the preludes and the wide range of resource which they display, the weight, variety, and unvarying high level of material of the allemandes and courantes, the supreme dignity, pathos, and warmth of colour and expression of the sarabandes, the sparkling vivacity of the bourrees and the gavottes, and the superb texture of the gigues combine to make this series of suites stand entirely alone as representing the very highest examples of the type in existence.'

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.

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.
