with his
North Country Nightingale
From 8.0 to 8.30 listeners are to hear Harold Ramsay and his Rhythm Symphony Orchestra, who won fame with their first broadcast in August. This evening they are to feature the ' Five o'clock ' fox-trot by Ravel, from his opera L'Enfant et les Sortilèges (The Child and the Enchantments). It represents a dance by the teapot and the cups and saucers, and is to be given for the first time by a rhythm band.
From 8.30 to 8.50 Hughie Green and his gang, just back from a triumphant tour of Scotland, are to give a new act.
From 8.50 to 9.0 Arthur Riscoe and his North Country nightingale are to give a brand-new topical act.

The Undergraduate (p. 6)
Drink, Puppy, drink (p. 98)
Smile again, my bonnie Lassie (p. 132) Wouldn't you like to know ? (p. 152) Only (p. 20)

(All page numbers refer to-the University Song Book)
At the request of a reader, we give both the Latin and the English versions of the words of the opening and closing signature tune of the Wireless Male Voice Chorus. As it is sung in Latin and a number of other listeners may like to know the words and their meaning, we give both versions below :
Gaudeamus igitur juvenes dum sumus ;
Post jucundam juventutem-Post molestam senectutem-Nos habebit humus.
Let us then rejoice while we are young;
After joyous youth-After grievous age-
The earth shall claim us.
The 'Gaudeamus Igitur' is the oldest known students' song in existence, and that is why it is used. The harmonisation of the melody has been transcribed by Leslie Woodgate from Brahms's Academic Festival Overture.

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.

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