: Mr. GEOFFREY GILBEY:

'The St. Leger'
THE St. Leger, the last and longest of the five classic races of the season, second only to the Derby in popularity and importance, is to be decided over the famous Town Moor course, Doncaster, on September. 7. The St. Leger is so named out of compliment to the soldier and sportsman, Colonel St. Leger, who may be said to have founded the race in 1776. Mr. Geoffrey Gilbey , the well-known trainer and racing journalist, will call to mind many of the famous horses, jockeys, owners, and trainers that have figured in past St. Legers.

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section C)
(Led by F. WEIST HILL )
Conducted by EDWARD CLARK
GLINKA was born in 1803 and lived to justify the title of ' Prophet-Patriarch ' of Russian music, given him by Liszt. He did, no doubt, lay the foundation on which Dargomijsky, Balakirev, and Borodin built the great Russian school which was presently to house Mussorgsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky, and all the later Russians. And the materials he used were the Russian national songs, the folk music he had heard and absorbed as a child. His first real success was with the famous opera, A Life for the Tsar, in 1836, and with that work a genuine school of Russian music was born.
This overture forms part of the incidental music written by Glinka for Count Koukolnik's tragedy, Prince Kholmsky. Tchaikovsky said of it that ' many touches recall the brush of Beethoven,' and that the entr'actes are ' little pictures painted by a master hand ... symphonic marvels which would suffice a second-rate composer for a whole series of long symphonies.' Glinka died in Berlin in 1857, and Berlioz, who admired his music intensely, wrote a life of him.

: 'Obsession'

A Radio Play by DULCIMA GLASBY
Produced by HOWARD RosE
THIS exciting play was first broadcast in August, 1930. It is the work of one of the B.B.C. play-adaptors, and deals, with full knowledge of the resources of radio production, with the obsession of fear created in a young man by the circumstances of his brother's accidental death. In a series of swiftly-changing scenes it. portrays his attempts to live down the obsession, to fight it, and his final conquest of it in circumstances similar to its origin. The action begins in England, with brief glimpses of Oxford and the Opera, and removes to a Canadian lumber camp, where the hero conquers his fear of heights, and makes good with a thrilling rescue. Obsession will make good listening for those who like the excitements of a thriller and do not object to a drama of conduct.

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.
