: BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA

(Leader, Edward Armstrong )
Conductor, Rudolf Schwarz
Jacques Thibaud (violin)
Edouard Lalo , one of the most noteworthy figures in French music of the nineteenth century, was Spanish by descent, and the ' Symphonie espagnole' is the most popular of his works. It was first played in Paris in 1875, when the soloist was the Spanish violinist Sarasate. The title is somewhat misleading, since the work is not a symphony, but a concerto for violin and orchestra in the form of a suite. It consists of five movements, of which the first, fourth, and fifth are usually played; and it is these that will be played this afternoon. A lyrical charm pervades the music, and delightful use is made of Spanish dance-rhythms.

: Wilfred Pickles in ' THE CARD '

by Arnold Bennett
Adapted as a serial in eight episodes by Olivia Manning 6
—' Raising a Wigwam '
Other parts played by Harry Oakes. Ralph Dean , and Denis Folwell
Production by William Hughes
Edward Henry Machin-Denry for short-is now a man of substance earning C4,000 a year. He is famous throughout the Potteries, but at the turn of the century he still lives with his mother in a tiny cottage at Bursley. She refuses to move from her home, and no bullying or cajoling on Denry's part will break down her obstinacy. When she is ill with influenza she refuses to go to bed, and it is only by pretending to be ill himself that Denry forces her to send for the doctor. So the battle goes on -a struggle between two obstinate personalities, with Denry, prompted by pride and affection, determined that his mother should have a home more in keeping with his position in The Five Towns.

: FROM BICKER TO BLUE ANCHOR-3

by J. B. Priestley
A cross-country journey
Tonight Mr. Priestley describes what he saw and heard -on the third stage of his cross-country journey from Bicker, a little village near Boston in Lincolnshire, to Blue Anchor, a hamlet in Somerset within sight of Minehead on the Bristol Channel. The first stage took him as far as Rugby. From there he made his way via Coventry to Banbury in Oxfordshire. The third stage ends at Oxford, and a student debate he heard there prompts some observations on the changes in university life since he was an undergraduate at Cambridge.

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.
