Sagt mir, o sehonste Schaf'rin moin (Tell me, O beauteous shepherdess)
Erlaube mir, foins Madchon (Allow me, dear Maid)
Die Sonne scheint micht mohr (The golden morning light is dimmed)
Feinsliebchen (My darling)
Wie komm ich denn zur Tur (How can I open your chamber door?)
Es steht ein Lind (A lime tree stands)
Och Moder ich will en Ding han (O mother, I want something)
In stiller Nacht (In silent night)
Mr. CECIL LEWIS : Dope Sheets '
The man who made the first ' talkie ' of a Shaw play initiates the film-curious to the mysteries of studio organisation. Mr. Lewis will describe the planning and making of film sets, how the parts are cast, what a schedule means at Elstree.
Mr. CHARLES ELTON (Director of the Bureau of Animal Population, University of Oxford) :
' Plagues of Animals '
Sudden increases in the number of animals have always puzzled zoologists. These ' plagues' appear to occur in rhythmical cycles, as did the locusts in Egypt, the lemmings of Norway, and as the cockroaches, it is predicted, will soon do in Germany. Mr. Elton will explain how watchers can help science by recording these changes.
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.
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.
