Mr. DESMOND MACCARTHY
MR. DESMOND MacCARTHY begins tonight a series of twelve talks that are not in any sense educational, but designed to discuss famous books and the right way of reading them so that the maximum amount of enjoyment may result. Mr. MacCarthy believes that there are many people today with little time for reading, who often wish they could devote more of their time to the great books of our literature. For their guidance lie will range over many classes of books that have stood the test of time. discussing their merits and the appropriate approach to them. Listeners who intend to follow Mr. MacCarthy this autumn are advised to secure from the Publications Dept., B.B.C., a copy of B.B.C. Talks, September, December, 1932, in which they will find a list of the books he proposes to discuss.

: 'The Gypsy Princess'

A Musical Play
Book by ARTHUR MILLER
Lyrics by ARTHUR STANLEY
Music by EMMERICH KALMAN
(.See centre column)
THIS popular operetta was last broadcast in May, 1931. It was specially adapted for broadcasting from the original version that ran for 212 performances at the Prince of Wales Theatre, London, in 1921. Many of last year's cast appear in this revival, which, with its romantic story of the prince who loved a gypsy singer, its gay musicianly score, and modernized libretto, should provide ideal light entertainment.

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.
