: The BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA

Conductor, Sir DAN GODFREY
From THE PAVILION, BOURNEMOUTH
NOT only in his own country, where they look up to him as a national hero, but in other paris of Europe too, there are many who think of Sibelius as the greatest living composer, the one who is adding most to mankind's wealth of music. Until recently we should have had to base any estimate of him on a few pieces of definitely patriotic intention, like En Saga and Finlantlia, but we are steadily being better informed, thanks to the enterprise of such conductors as Sir Henry Wood , Sir Dan Godfrey and Sir Hamilton Harty. This second symphony, and the third when we hear it, will bo recognized as making big steps away from the orthodox tradition by which number one is more or less bound, towards the freedom which Sibelius claims, and of which he makes such strong and self-reliant use.

Professor JULIAN HUXLEY : Man and Reality '
THIS evening Professor Julian Huxley , the distinguished biologist who introduced this sub-scries five weeks ago, returns to summarize the scientific view of man in the light of the information imparted in Dr. John Baker 's four talks. The physicist looks at the universe as, an outsido observer. The biologist must include himself and his mind in what he studies. In trying to define reality, he is brought up against the mind in all its aspects, emotional and aesthetic, as well as intellectual. Reality must include all these aspects. We probably never shall attain complete scientific or philosophic understanding, but science can make the world, or certain aspects of it, interesting and intellectually coherent. The talk concludes the first two parts of the science series. On January 6 begins a symposium on Science and Civilization : the speakers are to include such distinguished men as Lord Russell, J. B. S. Haldane , Sir Oliver Lodge , and Hilaire Belloc.

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.
