Recorded in Scotland under the direction of John Gough
Round these shores, day and night, )itt)e coasting craft that once were trawlers and drifters or fishing smacks are now engaged on the policing of close waters. Their job is seldom heard of and their praises are never sung, but they are nevertheless one of the main bulwarks of Britain. The story of one of these vessels is told by the crew.

Ballet music: Rosamunde Symphony from Op. 140—Grand
Duo (Orchestrated by Anthony Collins) played by London Symphony Orchestra
Leader, George Stratton
Conducted by Sir Adrian Boult
Schubert's Grand Duo for two pianos was written in the summer of 1824. Conceived on a large scale, it lends itself to orchestral treatment. The famous Hungarian composer and violinist, Joseph Joachim, scored the Duo for orchestra, and in this version it used to be often performed. Anthony Collins's version is, however, more in keeping with the true spirit of Schubert—the Schubert of the ' Unfinished ' and the C major Symphonies.

: 'UNCLE GABRIEL'

A comedy by Mabel Constanduros and Howard Agg
The action takes place on a fine summer's morning before the war
Produced by Mary Allen
After the serious note struck by Mabel Constanduros and Howard Agg in their last radio play, these popular authors have reverted to comedy. Uncle Gabriel is the story of what happened one summer's day to a little man who travelled in cheese. It is after the manner of The Lady from Abroad, which was so successful that it was pubtished immediately and has already been broadcast in Canada. The part of the little cheese-traveller was written for Richard Goolden , and should be one of Mr. Chips-Meek-Penny's most popular characters.
Yet another new play by these successful collaborators, The Laughing Mirror, is shortly to be broadcast.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
