: The World of Women: Painting and Pottery

Dame Laura Knight, D.B.E., R.A., LL.D.

"You will be elected to the Royal Academy one day". That is what Dame Laura Knight's mother said to her when she was only a few years old. The prophecy was fulfilled; in 1927 she was made an A.R.A. and in 1936 an R.A. Just before she was married to Harold Knight her first varnishing ticket came from the Royal Academy for a picture called "Mother and Child", which she painted at Staithes. She is now in the first rank of English artists, famous particularly for her fine studies of circus life.
Her talk today will be illustrated with several of her pictures, including "The Ballet", which was one of the attractions of last year's Academy Exhibition. Some of the special pottery which she has designed for the Coronation will also be shown.

: Starlight: Albert Sandler with His Trio

At the age of twelve Albert Sandler was playing in a cinema orchestra for five shillings a week; before long he was made leader. By saving, he was able to go to the Guildhall School of Music, where he won a scholarship. After the Guildhall he studied with Wessely and then with Ronay.
He is now a violinist with a huge public. Sound broadcast listeners have known him since the early days of broadcasting, particularly for his Sunday evening concerts.

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.
