: Full House

A live entertainment for Saturday Introduced by Joe Melia Among the main events:
Magdalena Buznea sings
Piaf MAGDALENA BUZNEA , busker extraordinary, was first discovered singing the songs of Edith Piaf in the London Underground station tunnel at Tottenham Court Road. But for Magdalena singing is a second career. Before setting up home in Britain in 1969 she was one of Romania's leading actresses.
Months of frustration seeking work in the theatre led Magdalena to music. Tonight you can hear her interpret some of the songs Edith Piaf made famous.
W. H. Auden
He is one of our greatest living poets. After a long voluntary exile in America, Auden is now once more living in England and tonight will be reading some of his work.
Burnt Out, Blown Out and Broke Pictures and ballads of the American Dust Bowl catastrophe in the 1930s which made farmers of the Great Plains face drought, duststorms and starvation. Presented by BOB REINDERS and FRED BAZIER.
10.5 Blue Bitch
A play by SAM SHEPHERD
With BETH PORTER , REX STALLINGS RICHARDSON MORGAN, BEN BENISON 'Sell the bitch. Already she's been born to some little man in County Cork, raised on a farm, running wild, schooled to the hare, trialed in at Limerick, sold to Florida, shipped back to Ireland, shipped down to Hackney, sold to me, gone in season, trialed, raced, and now I'm selling her again. What a life. How can I ever repay her.'
Matrix
Equally at home in plainsong or pop, Matrix is a group dedicated to breaking down barriers in music. They were founded three years ago by clarinettist ALAN HACKER and their musical journey tonight takes in 12th-century Spain, Renaissance Italy and a modern love-song; as well as an unexpected arrangement of the popular hymn, Amazing Grace.
Robots
Most respectable robots hold down steady jobs in factories or laboratories. Those in the studio tonight, however, are more eccentric and less of a technological threat to mankind: presented by ROGER RUSKIN SPEAR , member of the late Bonzo Dog Band, the mechanical and electrical humanoids will include a policeman who blows his mind as well as an erratic stripper.

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.
