: Martin Taubman with his Electronde

A Demonstration of its Music and Effects
Most of the pioneer days of radio will remember how the early sets were affected by objects brought close to them. The electronde is an instrument that turns these outside interferences to advantage. Martin Taubman will show the viewers the extraordinary musical effects he can produce merely by a delicate motion of the hand. Ostensibly he is able to produce sound out of thin air.


Musician: Martin Taubman

: The BBC Dance Orchestra

Directed by Henry Hall
With Molly, Marie, and Mary (The Three Sisters), Dan Donovan, George Elrick.

At the close of this afternoon's programme a chart arranged in co-operation with the Air Ministry will forecast the weather.

: Tempo and Taps

Rosalind Wade in a demonstration of Tap Dancing.
Rosalind Wade, as well as being a brilliant dancer herself, has an extraordinary flair as a teacher. She has appeared in Variety and has organised dancing scenes in several Hollywood films. This, then, is a great chance for would-be tap-dancers to pick up a point or two from an expert. Altogether, she runs eight dancing troupes. Radio listeners will remember the regular broadcasts of her Dancing Daughters.

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.
