(piano)
One of the greatest composers of modern times is Ernest Bloch. Most of his many works, however, are either for orchestra or chamber music combinations. For the piano he has composed merely a handful of works, including a piano Sonata and his latest work, the Suite for piano ' Visions and prophecies ', to be heard this afternoon.
This work was given its first performance and first broadcast by Harriet Cohen , to whom it is dedicated, during her recent American tour.

: VIOLIN AND PIANO SONATAS

played by Frederick Grinke (violin)
Kendall Taylor (piano)
Sir John McEwen's Sonata-Fantasia in E minor was composed in 1921. It is a melodious but very intellectually conceived work, consisting of two movements—the first grave and reflective, the second vivacious, with an expressive middle section, at the end of which is an alluring little Scottish tune with a drone-like accompaniment.

: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of the- British Legion and the Earl Haig Fund, Scottish Branch, by General Viscount Gort , V.C., G.C.B.
The Remembrance Day Appeal for the British Legion, which the late Earl Haig founded to help his old comrades of the Great War, has now to provide for another generation of ex-Service men. All British Legion schemes of assistance are in future to help ex-Service men of the present war. Thus the British Legion has an even greater dependence on public support to its annual Poppy Day Appeal, the only national appeal for financial help that it tnakes during the course of the year.
£594,000 was given on Remembrance Day, 1939, but in view of the present greater needs it is hoped that a new record total may be reached this year.

: 'THE SHADOW LINE'

by Joseph Conrad
Adapted for broadcasting by Robert Gittings
Produced by Douglas Cleverdon
' The Shadow Line ', like so many of Conrad's stories, is concerned not so much with adventures by sea-though these are exciting enough—as with their effect upon the mind of the man who is involved in them. It tells how the young captain of a sailing ship, on his first command in the Eastern seas, faced an ordeal that carried him across the shadowy border-line which divides care-free youth from full maturity.

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.
