: ' First Time Here'

A Tea Time Entertainment by Artists new to the Microphone
There is an element of uncertainty and surprise about this programme that should attract the adventurous listener. He stands the chance of hearing a well-varied programme of studio variety, and, by expressing his opinion of the turns, of helping to bring a new radio star to light.

Sir JOHN FOSTER FRASER : ' A Dash Across
Manchuria '
Sir John Foster Fraser 's career in journalism is literally described by the title of this series. After serving his apprenticeship in provincial journalism, he came to London in the 'nineties, and soon afterwards he was roaming the world in search of news. In 1896 he started with two others to bicycle round the world, and in accomplishing this feat, he passed through seventeen countries, and covered 19,237 miles in 774 days. In the course of an adventurous career he has visited the United States, Canada, the Balkans, Australia, Russia, Panama and the Argentine, in addition to travelling extensively in Europe. Tonight he describes a dash through Manchuria, which he made in 1901, at a time when that country was closed to foreigners.

: Soft Lights and Sweet Music

with AUSTEN CROOM-JOHNSON and LEN FILLlS
JOHN BURNABY and ELISABETH WELCH permission Charles
Thirty minutes of intimate cabaret entertainment presented in a form that pleased many listeners on its two previous broadcasts. An accomplished group of artists sing and play a succession of vocal and instrumental music in harmony with the character of the programme. Elisabeth Welch , a brilliant coloured singer now appearing in Nymph Errant at the Adelphi Theatre, will be heard broadcasting for the second time. Len Fillis , equally at home with Hawaiian and Spanish guitar, provides the instrumental colour. Piano solos, and duets with John Burnaby , will be contributed by Austen Croom-Johnson , a young British composer and pianist, who will play songs and piano pieces of his own composition, among them numbers that will be heard shortly in London in a new Chariot revue.

Conductor, B. WALTON O'DONNELL
LEONARD HUBBARD (Baritone) This music makes a very clear picture of the old tale of the lazy apprentice who, when his master, a magician, has gone out one day, pronounces the spell which sets a broomstick carrying water to the house. Unfortunately he forgets how to undo the spell, and the house soon begins to get flooded. He chops the broomstick in two, but that only makes things worse for eai-h half then does the work of one. The magician returns only just in time to save his apprentice, and the house.
The popular ballet of the Dance of the Hours from La Gioconda takes place, on the stage, in the Palace of Alvise, a Lord of the Inquisition. At the end of the ballet Alvise draws back the curtains which disclose to the horrified guests the apparently lifeless body of his wife Laura, who, he is persuaded, has deceived him.

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.
