: CONCERT

From a West Country cinema
Part 1
Aubrey Brain (horn)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
God Save the King
In Delius's A Village Romeo and Juliet Sali and Vreli are the Romeo and Juliet who have suffered in their love for each other from the bitter enmity of their parents. They meet again after a cruel separation and, determined to have one day of pleasure together, they go to a neighbouring fair, happy in each other's company. There they are recognised and worried by importunate questions.
Anxious to be alone, they leave the fair and walk to the Paradise Garden, which is an inn, formerly the manor house of a ruined country estate. The lovely music describes their walk: it is. idyllic, but imbued with a sense of impending tragedy.

: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of the ' Under
Fives', by J. B. Priestley
The wartime welfare of children under five is one of the most urgent of national causes. Their health must be protected, they must be saved from the worst effects of the shock of war, their mothers-working in essential war industries-must be given confidence that their little ones are well cared for during the long hours when they themselves cannot be with them.
This need is being comprehensively met by the provision of day nurseries, nursery schools, and specially trained workers. The Save the Children Fund, the National Society of Day Nurseries, the National Council for Maternity and Child Welfare, and the Nursery
Schools Association of Great Britain are the national voluntary organisations engaged in this multiple task, and it is in support of their work that J. B. Priestley is making his appeal.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to[address removed]

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.
