: Mr. EDMUND B. D'AUVERGNE: Sea Bathing'

THIS is the season when lynx-eyed councillors of the marine towns make their biggest ' bags,' and hordes of men, women, and children, in search of health and recreation, go down to the sea in bathing machines. Mr. d'Auvergne, in his researches into the history of sea-bathing, has gathered a vast amount of odd and amusing information about the many remarkable machines that men and women in the past have devised for the preservation of the proprieties and the foiling of town-councillors.

THE B.B.C. SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
(Principal First Violin, CHARLES WOODHOUSE )
Conducted by Sir HENRY WOOD
LISTENERS who recall the broadcast porformance of Johann Strauss 's most ambitioua operetta, The Gypsy Baron. last April will particularly remember this brilliant Zigeunerlied, sung by the pretty gypsy, Saffi. She sings of the gypsies, how brave and true they are, what splendid comrades, and what dangerous foes; take warning, she sings, ' for when the gypsy horde draws near, children's laughter turns to fear.' The music is not so fierce as the sentiment expressed ; Saffi is, after all, a very charming young gypsy.
EUGENE GOOSSENS remains for us an English composer, for we are not prepared to admit that his continued sojourn in the United States affects the issue of his nationality and our right to claim him as one of our most brilliant younger musicians. Eugene's father was born in Bruges in 1845, and came to England in 1873, later being appointed conductor to the Carl Rosa Opera Company. His son later succeeded him with the same Company, and with such antecedents it was only natural that the present Eugene, born in 1893, should have opera and conducting in his blood. Succeeding an early experience as a violinist with leading orchestras in London, he began conducting, at first during Sir Thomas Beecham 's opera season, some twenty years ago, and proved incontestably that though scarcely more than a boy, he was already a conductor by instinct. His career since then has been one of astonishing brillianoe; it was a great blow to the Concert
Room when he decided to leave England and accept the offer of conductorship at the Eastman School of Music, Rochester. At the moment ho is rightly esteemed as one of the three or four most famous conductors in America, which is very near to saying, of the world.

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.
