As for Blueberry Pie, 0 my! (if you can keep the deer out); and about the bears you needn't worry, they have no cares and (even when upside down in dust-bins) are never in a hurry.

: TALES FROM THE PACIFIC ISLANDS

by Sir Arthur Grimble
2-Stubborn Maiden
Last week's talk in this series of recordings made by the late Sir Arthur Grimble was an adventure story and in its way a classic. Equally excellent of its kind is this week's tale, which is a love story. It describes how Nei Taaruru fell in love and gained a husband before British rule came to the Pacific.

: THE FRIDAY RECITAL

Alan Loveday (violin)
Leonard Cassini (piano)
Both of Prokofiev's violin sonatas are comparatively late works, dating from the nineteen-forties. Whereas the second is an arrangement by Prokofiev himself of a sonata for flute and piano, the first (written between 1938 and 1946) was originally conceived as a violin sonata.
The first movement, Andante assai, acts as a kind of prelude; the second, Allegro brusco, is in the nature of a relentless march. The slow movement, Andante, divides melody and accompaniment equally between piano and violin; the Finale, Allegrissimo, is a brilliant movement, which rings the changes on various rhythms and ends with a reference back to the opening movement.

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.
