: The World of Women: 1: Sculpture in Wood, Bronze, and Stone: Dora Clarke

New Series
Dora Clarke studied at Havard Commerce and at the Slade School, where she was awarded a scholarship for sculpture. This scholarship was specially created for her as hitherto there had not been one in existence at the school. In 1928 she went to Africa to study Negro types, and among the work she is exhibiting today she will show some inspired by that visit. Notable examples of her work are the memorials of Joseph Conrad in New York and London.

: Dorset Garden

A Miniature Restoration Revue.
The artists include: James Topping, Joan Cross

Leader, Boris Pecker
Conductor, Hyam Greenbaum

This production will try to recapture the atmosphere of a well-known London playhouse of the seventeenth century, Dorset Garden Theatre, which was built facing the Thames in 1671. Pictures of its facade, which bore the arms of James, Duke of York, suggest that it was designed by Wren. A quaint feature of the period was that footmen were admitted to the galleries free of the usual charge of 2s. 6d. at the end of the fourth act of any production.

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.
