ALFRED BARKER
Alfred Barker is one of the most brilliant of the late Adolf Brodsky 's pupils. At the invitation of the distinguished Russian pianist, Siloti, he went to Russia some years before the War. He soon became widely known and played at concerts in various parts of the country.
He appeared at a ' command ' performance before the Czar and his family shortly before the revolution, and he actually took part in concerts while shooting could be heard in the streets outside. But it is of his early years he will talk this morning. Between the age of three weeks and fourteen years he was travelling all over Europe with a circus, and had many lively experiences. He was, for example, bitten by a bear at the age of four ; he played the part of the Prince in Cinderella for the Queen of Roumania at the age of seven, and was at school for odd periods in towns like Vienna, Belgrade and Graz.
Having had a very long experience of playing in front of the microphone (mainly as leader of the Halle Orchestra for a considerable time), broadcasting has no terrors for him.

ALISTAIR COOKE
At the request of a number of listeners who want to know about the American League of Purity, about the grading of 'Adult' and ' Universal' films, and so forth, Mr. Alistair Cooke will talk today on ' 'Censorship'.
He proposes to look over the actual
Production Code itself, the modem picture industry's Magna Chart of official decency, and to scrutinise again the old familiar faces of art and morality.

: From Plainsong to Purcell

The Foundations of English Music
Under the direction of Sir RICHARD RUNCIMAN TERRY
Seventeenth Century Songs
Sung by JOHN ARMSTRONG (tenor)
ROBERT JOHNSON , whose father, John, was one of Queen Elizabeth's Musicians for the Lute, was appointed also a Musician for the Lute by-James I, in 1624. He was afterwards attached to Prince Henry's Household, and on the accession of Charles I,
Henry being dead, his post as Court Musician was confirmed anew. This song, ' As I walked forth ', was printed in Playford's ' Ayres and Dialogues'.
DR. JOHN BLOW was one of the most eminent musicians of his day, which was the latter half of the seventeenth century. He served as Organist of the Chapel Royal under three Sovereigns. On the death of Purcell he was appointed Organist at Westminster Abbey and retained that office until the end of his life.
PELHAM HUMFREY was born in 1647 and died at the early age of twenty-seven. He was appointed a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal, and later Master of the Children, and Composer in Ordinary for the Violins to His Majesty. In his short life he composed several fine anthems. This song, ' I pass all my hours ' was first printed in Playford's ' Choice Songs'. Humfrey is buried in Westminster Abbey.
WILLIAM LAWES and HENRY LAWES , half-brothers belonging to a distinguished English family of musicians, are represented in tomorrow's Foundations. Henry, a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal, was a distinguished figure both as composer and performer. William was also a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal, and a highly esteemed composer. Henry was buried in Westminster Abbey, but William was killed in the Civil War.

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.
