: THE FEARFUL HAZARDS OF FOREIGN TRAVEL

by Diana Graves
It was at the age of five, when she was inadvertently left behind in a snowstorm on the Brenner Pass, that Diana Graves first became aware of the hazards of foreign travel. Since then she has spent most of her life travelling abroad and by some mischance there has not been the smallest improvement in her circumstances.

Three eye-witness accounts of famous battlefields
2-Bull Run, 1861
Taken from ' My Civil War Diary' by William Howard Russell
Reader, Howard Marion-Crawford
At the opening of the Civil War, William Howard Russell was in the United States as correspondent for The Times. Returning to Washington, he heard rumours of fighting south of the city and rode out to investigate. The fighting turned out to be the first Battle of Bull Run, and the despatch he wrote on this occasion earned him for the rest of his life the title of ' Bull Run ' Russell.

: SYMPHONY CONCERT

Margaret Kitchin (piano)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
(Leader, Paul Beard )
Conducted by Nicolai Malko
Fricker's Piano Concerto is dedicated to Harriet Cohen, at whose suggestion it was written; and it was she who played it for the first time, in the year of its completion, 1954. Recently the composer has revised it, and tonight we shall hear the first performance of the new version. The orchestra is a comparatively small one, consisting of double woodwind, two trumpets, two horns, timpani, and strings. The work is in three movements. Deryck Cooke

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.

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