Mr. CEDRIC BELFRAGE
CEDRIC BELFRAGE , film critic of a leading Sunday newspaper, only recently succeeded Francis Birrell as B.B.C. critic. He is unique among London writers on film subjects in that he has lived and worked many years in Hollywood. Only four weeks ago he returned from a six weeks' visit to the i Californian film capital. While in Hollywood, he spent many entire days in the studios of the big companies, discussing the present state of film affairs with such leading executives as living Thalberg of Metro-Goldwyn, David Selznick of Radio Pictures, B. P. Schulberg of Paramount. From a careful analysis of the situation, he concludes that the talkie is waning in America, that this is due to loss of audience-interest in indifferent stories (the big stories like Grand Hotel, One Hour With You, Shanghai Express,and Scar/ace can still pack the cinemas) and that American producers today will welcome outstanding British pictures as providing novel and stimulating- -material to recover their own audiences and restore the now dying habit of movie-going. In his talks Mr. Belfrage ingeniously mingles observations on the Movie in general with reviews of current films. He is no highbrow-and his opinion of pictures is a reliable guide to the ordinary listener.

Mr. A. LLOYD-JAMES: Pronunciation and Dialect'
MR. LLOYD-JAMES continues his original and provocative incursion into the world of speech. This week he attacks the thorny problems of dialect and standard pronunciation. He will analyse the way certain English vowel and consonant sounds are treated in various parts of the country, and broach the delicate question of whether a standard English pronunciation is either possible or desirable-and Whether anyone would use it.

HARRY ISAACS (Pianoforte) THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section F)
(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON
SIBELIUS is more and more becoming popular as a composer of other things besides
Finlandia and Valse Trials, and he begins to.be recognized universally, and not alone by practising musicians, as one of the most distinguished composers of his age. His symphonies have been more frequently performed in Eugland during the last year than in all the years before, and it is being discovered that his music, so far from being outside the ken of average comprehension, is comfortably within it. It will not be long before Sibelius, who has already the esteem of tho larger public, may count alse upon their affection.
Sibelius has composed a fair amount of incidental music to contemporary plays, and by reason of his keen sense of drama, always successfully. He has the gift of throwing himself into the period and environment of the play he is dealing with, so that his incidental music is as much an apt reflection of the dramatist as of the composer. It is so with this music to the play by Adolf Paul , a Swedish playwright. It was written, of course, for the theatre, but being the work of a symphonic writer, its natural permanent home is the concert room.

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.
