: EMPIRE REVIEW

A romantic review of the British
Empire in music, song, and story
Devised and produced by C. F. Meehan
Once again Mike Meehan , of ' In Town Tonight' fame, will conjure up a story of yet another place in the British Empire in this new series of his which began on September 5. Before coming into the entertainment world and making such a hit, first as Cochran's publicity man and then as script-writer and producer for the BBC, he saw much of the world as a soldier. He served for many years in the Indian Army ; was in France in the last war and wounded at Ypres. In 1917 he was at Baluchistan for the Mari operations, and then in Palestine until the end of the war. He was in the Afghan war in 1920, back in India in 1921, and with the Waziristan Field Force from 1922 to 1924.

: AT THE ARMSTRONGS'

' Walter home on leave '
With the' eldest Armstrong boy at home for a few days, the family have a chance of comparing notes on the difference between life at home and in the Army
You know the Armstrongs and have met them as the artist imagined them in the Radio Times the week before last. Once more some of this large family are on the air-airing their views, as it were, to each other while listeners generally, and Under-Twenty Clubs in particular, eavesdrop on their arguments.

: 'EMPIRE FORCES HERE'

Devised and produced by John Gough aided by his fellows from Overseas
There are now many units of Overseas forces in this country-and to some purpose, as history will show. They come from the great ' out back', from the prairies, and even from the Arctic Circle, or from Dominion towns. Their will is the same as that of the Motherland-to cherish freedom, and to see that Hitler does not wipe it from the earth.

: SCHUBERT

Quartet in D minor (Op. post.) played by the Catterall String Quartet-Arthur Catterall (first violin), Audrey Catterall
,
Lena Wood (viola), Johan Hock (cello)
Schubert's Quartet in D minor, which is in four movements, takes its name from the slow movement, which is a very beautiful set of variations on his song ' Death and the Maiden'. Indeed, this work might easily be called 'Tragic ', for, in addition to the choice of theme for the slow movement, the first movement is imbued with the spirit of resignation and sorrow. It was certainly written about the time that Schubert was going through pecuniary troubles and illness: ' I am ', he said, the most unhappy and wretched creature in the world.'

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.
