: An Organ Recital

by GILBERT MILLS
Relayed from
The Church of The Messiah,
Birmingham SIGFRID KARG-ELERT, organist and composer, who died last year at the age of fifty-four, was a celebrated figure in the musical life of this century, though his activities and fame were associated with the comparatively small world of the organ rather than with the larger world of symphonic music. A brilliant pianist and organist himself, he wrote a great deal for the organ-over two hundred pieces, some of large dimensions, and many of great beauty and originality.

: Enquiry into the Unknown

Mrs. WILLIAM HENRY SALTER :
' Telepathy '
IN HER BROADCAST tonight Mrs. Salter will lay emphasis on the difficulty in deciding whether the fact of two minds happening on the same thought at the same time is really telepathy or coincidence ; and the need, therefore, to collect as many examples as possible of experiences that look like telepathy, and to compare them one with another before arriving at any conclusion.
She will give various examples : that of a person talking to a friend, and either knowing or guessing what was in the mind of that friend. Another of a person in England seeing a vision of a brother in Australia, apparently dying, and a few days later hearing that he was dead, and was lying unconscious at the time the vision was seen. She will also discuss automatic writing.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
