: Royal Institution Lecture

The Royal Institution lectures are a feature of the children's Christmas holidays. This year they are about ships. G.I. Taylor, F.R.S., is giving the series this year. This afternoon he will explain, with actual experiments, why ships roll in a rough sea.


Lecturer: G.I. Taylor

: Animals All!

Mary, the Ape, Joe Arthur and his Goose, Gilmore's White Poodle and his Cat, Tarzan, the Human Ape, Claud Zola's Horse

These animals are not claimed to be the finest specimens of their kind. It is certain, however, that no Zoo possesses a more extraordinary collection. Viewers with a leaning towards natural history will be interested to note a strange divergence from type in these familiar animals.

in songs at the pianoforte

Nancy Logan is a very versatile person indeed. She has appeared in several radio shows, including The January Revue, and, in Empire programmes, she has written several numbers for and played in successful shows such as Each Hour Every Day and Trunk Call.
Her latest achievement is the writing of the musical score for The Melody That Got Lost, to be produced on Boxing Day at the Embassy Theatre, with herself at the piano, and Victoria Hopper and Esmond Knight playing leads. And not content with being a composer and a pianist, she had a part in Evelyn Waugh's Vile Bodies at the Vaudeville. Last summer she further showed her versatility with a broadcast of a classical piano recital.

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.
