: 'The Musical Switchback'

Mr. PHILIP THORNTON
IN THE PRESENT TALK Mr. Thornton Will deal with the marked contrast between the European's idea of Eastern music and what it really is, rather than with cases of parallels in the music of different countries and different ages, which was the subject of his earlier talks in this series. Most people recognise snatches of The Mikado when they hear them, but few have had a chance of hearing the actual music in Japanese drama. That, roughly is the underlying idea of this talk in the Musical Switchback.

A BIG WELCOME will await the Houston Sisters, who last broadcast in October, 1933; and a top-liner of the music-halls is Ernie Mayne , who appears for the first time in Music-Halls' of the air, after his big success in 'What Next?' The Moussorgsky Quartet, who are very rarely in this country, will give their Russian folk-songs; and the lively programme, which includes Leslie Weston and Queenie May, will be compered by Sutherland Felce , who thus breaks new ground.

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.
