: THE MEN WHO MATTER IN COMMUNIST CHINA

Personal portraits of Mao-tse-Tung, Chou-en-Lai, and Chu-Teh by Arthur Mathers
How are we to follow what is happening in China without being confused? Might it not be helpful to know something about the Chinese Communist leaders who now control the bulk of this vast country ot 500 million people? Arthur Mathers , who was formerly Far Eastern Correspondent of the Daily Telegraph and for the last nine years has been in the Far East, has seen Chinese Communism in operation in many areas* His long discussions with these three Communist leaders enable him to portray them in a colourful and intimate way.

: Naunton Wayne, Basil Radford and Hubert Gregg in 'THREE MEN ON THE BUMMEL'

Jerome K. Jerome 's famous sequel to ' Three Men In A Boat' dramatised for radio by John Jowett with Joan Clement Scott
Georgie Henschel , John Sharp Dennis McCarthy. Ian Sadler Production by Vernon Harris
What is a ' Bummcl '? Let Jerome give the answer, as he doe< in the final paragraph of his well-loved book. * A " Bummel " I should describe as a Journey, long or short, without an end; the only thing regulating it being the necessity of getting back within a given time to the point from which one started. Sometimes It is through busy streets, and sometimes through the fields and lanes: sometimes we can be spared for a few hours; and sometimes for a few days. But long or short, but here or there, our thoughts are ever on the running of the sand. We nod and smile to many as we pass; with some we stop and talk awhile; and with a few we walk a little way. We have been much interested, and often a little tired. But on the whole we have had a pleasant time, and are sorry when 'tis over.'

: THE FRIDAY RECITAL

Mary Jarred (contralto)
Frederick Stone (accompanist)
Antonio Brosa (violin) Kathleen Long (piano) In spite of their late opus number,
Schubert's three Sonatinas for violin and piano were in fact written in 1816, when he was nineteen. No. 2 in A minor, with its wistful opening, is a particularly graceful example of the composer's youthful style. It has four movements: Allegro moderato, Andante, Minuetto (Allegro), and Allegro.
The freshness and charm that characterise Beethoven's Op. 24 (which is in the same key as his Pastoral Symphony) have gained for it the name of the Spring Sonata. Harold Rutland

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.
