Last week's episode told how Bill MacAndrew set on for the Western Isles in his little boat, The Prate. Bill's grand-father died recently, and left him a marked map showing rhe way to an island with a green cave which might contain a fortune. The children of the village of Pindory—the Fishers and rheir friend5-offered themselves as members of the crew of The Pirate. There is a villain in me story. He too is seeking the green cave, so the children propose to help Bill by taking their Puppet Theatre to entertain children of the Western Isles. This, of course, is to put the villa n off the scent.

: BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA,

(Leader, Reginald Stead )
Conductor, John Hopkins
Angus Morrison (piano)
A.t the opening of Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto there is a break with tradition, since it is the soloist who begins by quietly enunciating the chief theme, though the orchestra continues it and provides an extended exposition before the piano is heard again. But it is on this theme, with its gently persistent rhythm, that most of the movement is based, including the highly elaborate passage-work given to the soloist. The Andante consists of a remarkable dialogue in which the piano pleads its cause against the stternvoiced strings The final Rondo steals in with a gaily rhythmical theme, thus confirming the general character of the work, which is one of quiet happiness and contentment. H. R.

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
