: 'THREE MEN AMD A PARSON'

Last of the series of discussions in which three men ask a parson some of the questions that are in many people's minds these days
If what has been said about God and man on preceding nights is true, what does it mean in simp)e, straightforward terms ? On this question a newcomer to the discussions will have some uncomfortable things to say. Herepresentsthegreatnumber of people who fee) that the Church is always taking refuge in )ong explanations from the simple demands of Jesus.
These four discussions will be followed up by two sermons to be broadcast tomorrow, March 2, by Canon F. A. Cockin , the ' parson ', who will conduct both the morning and the evening services in the Home programme.

: BEETHOVEN

Symphony No. 8, In F played by BBC Orchestra (Section B)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Beethoven himself called the Eighth Symphony a ' little symphony ' and although it is imbued from first to last with gay spirits and is almost as light in texture as a Haydn or Mozart symphony, it was no great success when it was first performed. The reason for this, said Beethoven, is ' because it is so much better than the other'(the No. 7). Beethoven, however, was not necessarily a good judge of his own music.

: 'CAFE DES EXILES'

Programme devised and written by Wilfrid Rooke Ley with Violet Marquesita , Wilfrid Rooke Ley , Andrea Matandrinos ,
Cecile Chevreau , and William Ashley
BBC Theatre Orchestra
Leader, Tate Gilder
Conducted by Mark H. Lubbock
Presented by Desmond Davis
Deep down in a certain cellar, which you must imagine to be both soundproof and bomb-proof, the night life of London still goes on. There the exiles of every nation gather to drink the remaining stocks of the wine of their country, and to listen to their native music.
Listeners can depend on a romantic atmosphere and background in any programme devised by the deviser of ' The Table under the Tree', especially when it is to be performed by so gifted and cosmopolitan a cast.

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.
