Sylvia Marriott made her radio debut as Rosanne in The Merry Princess and Wings over Ruritania, but many listeners will remember hearing her at an earlier date in The World Goes By, in which she told how she became headline news by shooting a fox that was raiding the rabbitry in the garden of her house at Hampstead Heath. At the Open-Air Theatre in Regent's Park she played Celia to Gladys Cooper 's Rosalind in As You Like It.

: ' ONCE A WEEK'

A talk on subjects of the moment

: BBC MILITARY BAND

Conductor, P. S. G. O'Donnell

: LITERARY ANTHOLOGY

' Remembrance of things past '

: CZECH MUSIC

Conducted by Ian Whyte
Frederick Smetana was, like all natives of Bohemia, an intense patriot and lover of the natural beauties of his country. He wrote a series of six symphonic poems in praise of Bohemia, entitled 'My Country '. The one now to be performed is the first, and its title refers to the River Vltava (or Moldau), Bohemia's most important waterway. The music sets out to describe the course of the river from its rise in a forest spring, through the meadows, past the towns, to the sea. It is obviously the simplest kind of programme music, made up of folk tunes and lilting melodies4 but all the more fascinating for its freedom from complications.

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.
