: Music While You Work

played by Joseph Seal at the theatre organ
It was association with two other famous broadcasting organists, Reginald Dixon and Reginald New, that led Joseph Seal to take up the cinema organ in 1933 when he was only twenty years of age. He had had plenty of organ-playing experience before that though, for he was learning at the age of thirteen, and in a few months was appointed organist to St. Cuthbert's Church, Darwen, Lancashire. After playing for twelve months at the Regal Cinema, Altrincham, he went to the Lonsdale Cinema, Carlisle, and then on to the Ritz, Belfast, from which he has given over a hundred broadcasts.

: 'TRAVELS WITH A DONKEY'

The tale of a journey in the Cevennes by Robert Louis Stevenson
Dramatised by Christine Orr
Throughout his life Robert Louis Stevenson loved a journey. ' For my part ', he wrote, ' I travel not 'to go anywhere but to go. I travel for travel's sake.'
It was his fate to take many anxious journeys in search of health, but in September 1878 he set out on one of the most care-free of all his journeys-a walking holiday in that wild and mountainous district of France, the Cevennes. His adventures with Modestine, the gentle-looking donkey who proved so stubborn, have become famous, and many will be delighted to hear them again on the air.

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.
