Mr. HUGH RUTTLEDGE : 'Climbing Mount
Everest'
The attention of history teachers in secondary schools is particularly drawn to this series. Every week a single speaker who is an expert either on home or foreign affairs will discuss the important items in the current news. It is believed that these talks may be very useful in connection with the teaching of modem history.

: German Talk

Herr MAX KROEMER
The first lesson in a new German course, which will extend over two years. The course is designed primarily for the study of the language from the very beginning, for the benefit of those listeners who have no knowledge at all of German. At the same time, listeners whose German has grown rusty will find much to interest and benefit them in the lessons. Max Kroemer is Instructor of German at the Regent Street Polytechnic. London, and for the London County Council. The text used throughout the first year will be ' A German Course,' by F. L. Sock and L. F. Thompson (Longmans, Green, 3s. 6d.)

: THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND

Conductor, B. WALTON O'DONNELL
HILDEGARD ARNOLD (Violoncello)
This popular suite of dances originally formed part of the incidental music written for the production, in 1909, of Maeterlinck's fairy play, The Blue Bird. Those who saw the play, which tells how two children, Tyltyl and Mytyl, pass for a time from the Land of Memory and find adventure in a cosmic world of fantasy, will remember the sympathetic charm and beauty of the production, and how aptly and gracefully Norman O'Neill 's music fitted the mood of the play. The first number in this suite, ' Dance of the Mist-Maids,' accompanies the passage of the children through a mist which blots out the Land of Memory. The second is a ' Dance of Fire and Water,' each fighting for supremacy. The third is the ' Dance of the Stars ' in the Palace of Night ; and the last, the ' Dance of the Hours,' who came out of the grandfather clock when Tyltyl turned the magic stone.

Colonies.

: Daylight Robbery or The Thief in the Night

Radio's finest burlesque team take the air again with another wildly improbable, wildly funny rag in which regulation hero, villain, heroine and squire perform the regulation inanities round and about the regulation necklace. Listeners to the Melluish Brothers' previous shows of this type - Only a Mill Girl, Beaten at the Post, The King's Double - will need no inducement to hear their latest. Strangers to the team are warned to expect a high speed show, bristling with the broader kind of humour, and sauced with melody. Nervous listeners to this 'burglaresque' are advised by the authors to remove their spectacles.

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.
