A magazine programme of sports, sports gossip, prospects, reminiscences
Howard Marshall introducing
Rowe Harding and Kenneth Rankin
While the first wartime Rugby season has been necessarily a thin one compared with those of pre-war years, it has nevertheless provided some first-class football.
W. Rowe Harding is going to look back over the events of the last few months, and he will speak of them with the authority of one of the greatest Welsh three-quarters who have ever lived. Kenneth Rankin is a sporting journalist who has broadcast on many occasions, and this evening he is going to recall a great ' vintage ' season of Rugby football some fifty years ago.

: THE SERGE KRISH SEPTET

Twenty years ago Serge Krish founded the Modem Trio-himself piano, Melzak violin, Manucci cello. In 1923 they toured America and broadcast on their return. Five years later Krish founded his Septet, which has been on the air regularly ever since.
He will always be remembered for founding the New Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, composed of eighty instrumentalists who had fallen on hard times. Their Sunday afternoon concerts were a great success at the People's Palace until it was taken over for war purposes. They are now being continued at the Central Hall, Westminster.

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.

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.
