(Leader, Paul Beard )
Conducted by Warwick Braithwaite
Saint-Saens's first opera. The Yellow Princess, was written in 1872, in a Paris scarcely recovered from the cruel consequences of war. The story centres round a princess painted on a Japanese fan and a scientist to whom the princess seems to come to life in his dreams. The music is said to be too cold in feeling for the somewhat exotic libretto, but the overture has survived as an effective and. popular concert piece.

: CHILDREN'S HOUR

'The Disgraceful Business at Mrs. Goose's'
Another Toytown adventure by S. G. Hulme Beaman
In Toytown, in Mrs. Goose's Confectionery, you can eat all you like for sixpence, with tea thrown in. But some animals are bigger than others, and Mrs. Goose, very naturally, dislikes entertaining certain friends of Dennis the Dachshund, who are both low and large. Mrs. Goose asked for trouble when she engaged Dennis and Larry the Lamb as waiters, and it is to be feared that Ernest the Policeman (who, he hopes, knows his duty) will have cause this afternoon to view what occurs with the gravest suspicion.

: THE WORLD GOES BY

Gilbert Harding introduces men and women who have something to tell about their jobs, their experiences, and their observations in the world around them
The emphasis in this programme is on people's lives and on the things they do-from collecting buttons or gorillas to motoring in Tibet and exploring rivers in South America. It ranges . all over the world in search of stories, but it also tries to give glimpses of life at home, past and present; through such items as a gentle, parochial essay on a visit to the Chelsea Flower Show and a nonagenarian's reflections on the splendour of a London society which has disappeared. This week there is a recording of a conversation with H. V. Kaltenbom , the American radio commentator, a ruminative piece by Rufus Buxton on ' A New Zealand friend and Leicester Square,' and a report from Richard Rumbold on Training an AU-Weather Air Force.'

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.
