Tonight's variety bill is really varied : it includes a soprano, a famous male duet, a ventriloquist patter act, a bird-imitator, a straight comedian, and a famous impersonator. Miss Rosa Barty, a charming light singer, makes a welcome return to the microphone. Alec Shaw, the Scots bird-man who imitates the cries and songs of owls, curlews, nightingales,and thrushes, came to broadcasting from the Windmill Theatre. Bert Copley is a Yorkshire comedian. Mr. Flotsam and Mr. Jetsam are as sonorous and as melodious as ever; while there is always a warm welcome for Clarice Mayne whether she is singing in her own style or imitating other favourites. The B.B.C. Dance Orchestra, which celebrated its first anniversary earlier in the week, plays throughout the programme.

: THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND

Conductor, B. WALTON O'DONNELL
In the early part of 1846, Berlioz was arranging a concert at Budapesth, and was strongly advised by a local amateur to lend the programme something of a national flavour and, if possible, to incorporate in one of the pieces a real Hungarian tune. He selected this march and arranged it for orchestra with such success that the piece was received with tremendous enthusiasm. Berlioz determined, accordingly, that it must, by hook or by crook, find its way into his Damnation of Faust, and to that end invented a whole new episode of the story which had no place in the original.
The libretto was sternly criticised at the time, and defended by Berlioz with all his accustomed vehemence. But no such consideration affects the popularity of the March ; it is, indeed, one of the most stirring pieces of orchestral martial music which we possess.

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.

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.
