(Dafydd Havard broadcasts by permission of British Foundation Pictures)
Last week Old Glowrie started telling you about fresh trouble at Green Hillocks, John Sarnford's farm. Rumours were flying about the village that Devil's Dice, a wild barren place near the farm, was haunted. When Jay, young Bill's cousin, came for a holiday to Green Hillocks, he persuaded Bill and Mary Pryce, and, of course. Storm, to explore Devil's Dice. They arranged to meet late one night but somehow missed one another, and when Bill and Mary and 'Storm got to the top of the Giant's Stone Quarry, they found Jay's rope fastened to a rock and dangling over the edge. But the rope had been cut.

Kendall Taylor (piano)

(Leader, Paul Beard)
Conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargent
From the Royal Albert Hall , London
Beethoven Concert
Overture: Egmont
7.42 app. Piano Concerto No. 3, in C minor
8.21 app. Symphony No. 7, in A
Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto, written in 1800, is the work of a young man rejoicing in his strength. The opening movement, sturdy and forthright, is followed by a Largo, in the remote key of E major, which has a magic all its own. The final Rondo abounds in energy and high. spirits, and culminates in an irresistibly gay Presto in six-eight time.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
