The ' pot-pourri ', or non-stop hour of music, is a form of entertainment which Julius Burger and other conductors have popularised from German and Austrian broadcasting studios. Dr. Burger has come from Vienna to conduct the B.B.C. Theatre Orchestra, bringing with him the elaborate score of a brand new pot-pourri which will have its first performance in England.
Tonight's broadcast introduces an absorbing series which is no less than a scientific investigation into the occult-the hidden and intangible world of the mind and spirit. ' We know what we are, but we know not what we may be', ', and in these broadcasts eminent modern intellects will sift and explore and examine such beliefs as spiritualism, and such things as mental telepathy, dreams and prevision, ghosts and haunted houses, the influence of the mind over the body, and the whole question of survival. Here is a subject that affects all of us, interests most of us, and is manifest somewhere in the most material being. Gerald Heard , who introduces the series, is well known to listeners through his broadcasts on 'This Surprising World'.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
