: Boxing Demonstration

Viewers will remember the interesting demonstration given on January 1 by members of the R.A.F. Boxing Association, and, more recently, the thrilling amateur contests between England and Ireland that were televised from the concert hall of Alexandra Palace. The boxing to be presented today will be particularly easy to follow, for one boxer will be dressed in black, the other in white.

Leader, Boris Pecker
Conductor, Hyam Greenbaum

Esterhaz, the palace of the Esterhazy family, was said to have no place but Versailles to compare with it for magnificence There were magnificent flower gardens, summer houses, hermitages, a deer park, temples, and grottoes. Above all, there were two theatres for operas, dramas, and marionettes, presided over by the Kapellmeister, who was Haydn, at a salary of £78 a year. In this programme an impression will be given of the scene when Maria Theresa visited Esterhaz in 1773. She was entertained by a new Haydn symphony, now known by her name; an opera called L'Infedelta Delusa; and a marionette production called Philemon und Baucis.

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.
