All the village was prepared to bet its last penny that either Twm Jenkins , the Bread, or Dai Lewis , the Milk, would eventually win the hand of Susan Richards. You could have got very long odds on any outsider even entering the race. However, everyone reckoned without Susan herself, who was a woman of some determination and who knew what she wanted; and Twm Jenkins , the Bread, and Dai Lewis , the Milk, did not enter into her calculations at all.

: SYMPHONY CONCERT

BBC Symphony Orchestra
(Leader, Paul Beard)
Conducted by Sir John Barbirolli
Part 1
Faure's Ballade, one of the most important of his earlier works, was originally written for piano alone, and afterwards arranged for piano and orchestra. It is said to have been suggested by the forest scene in Siegfried, though it bears few traces of the influence of Wagner. Mai-Dun is the ancient name of the enormous pre-historic earthwork and fortification that stands to the south-west of Dorchester, and is now known as Maiden Castle. John Ireland, who has set to music a number of Hardy's poems, wrote his Symphonic Rhapsody in 1920-21 after a prolonged stay in that part of the Hardy country.

: SYMPHONY CONCERT

Part 2
William Alwyn , who is a professor of composition at the Royal Academy of Music, has a large number of works; and much film music, to his credit. His Symphony is dedicated to Sir John Barbirolli , who conducted the first performance of it at the Cheltenham Festival two years ago. There are four movements, the first of which begins slowly and after a brief Allegro broadens in style. Melodic interest abounds, and the whole is scored by the hand of a master. Harold Rutland
Another performance: tomorrow (Third)

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
