: Live Questions

The first of four evening services for Youth
1-What am I to make of it all ?
Address by the Rev. W. D. L. Greer
From a city in the West Country
This evening and for the next three Sundays the evening services will be specially arranged for young people. When the first live question is answered, so far as it can be answered, tonight, three questions will come up for consideration in subsequent services. What is God doing ? What has God done in Christ ? What is God doing through the Church ?
After being vicar of St. Luke's, Newcastle, Mr. Greer, who will speak this evening, became General Secretary of the Student Christian Movement. Thus for many years he has been in close touch with young people, both in a working-class district in the North and in the colleges and universities of Great Britain.

: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of Combined
Theatrical Charities by Will Fyffe
This appeal is in aid of the Variety Artists' Benevolent Fund, the Actors' Benevolent Fund, the Variety Artists' Ladies' Guild, and the Theatrical Ladies'' Guild—each of them organisations that take care of the poor and distressed stage artists and children of the profession.
Of all who are suffering as a result of the war, none has been more hardly hit than theatrical people. The calls on the charities have increased enormously, with very poor prospects of raising the necessary funds. Artists are always ready to help others, and this appeal should commend itself to every listener.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

: HAYDN QUARTETS-6

Quartet in E flat, Op. 76, No. 6
Haydn's last quartet, Op. 103 played by The Griller String Quartet-Sidney Griller (violin) ; Jack O'Brien (violin) ; Philip Burton (viola) ;
Colin Hampton (cello)
Haydn's set of String Quartets, Op. 76, is one of the crowning achievements of his life's work. They are . contemporary with the Creation and the London Symphonies. Two outstanding movements of the sixth Quartet in E flat are the slow movement, a fantasia with bold and original modulations, and the Trio of the Minuet. Of the latter Sir
Donald Tovey says that it is the most beautiful part of the quartet, consisting as it does ' wholly of the scale of E flat in iambic rhythm, descending and ascending with counterpoints as multitudinous and heavenly as the angels on Jacob's ladder '.

: BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Leader, Laurance Turner
Guest Conductor, Clarence Raybould
Rameau's opera Castor and Pollux is the second and probably the most successful of the composer's twenty-four stage works. It is a lyrical tragedy in five acts and a prologue, and was produced in 1737. Although the opera is no longer performed, some of its numbers are occasionally heard today.
The subject of the opera appealed to many other composers, and was particularly suited to the elaborate spectacle of eighteenth-century stage productions.

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.
