Lady MUIR
This morning listeners are to hear a talk by a speaker who has just returned from the Balkans. Lady Muir is the wife of Sir Alexander Kay Muir and daughter of M. Standoff , who was Bulgarian Minister to the Court of St. James just after the war.
Being the daughter of a diplomat, she has been all over the world. Listeners will remember her series of talks ' Through Three Continents ', which were so popular about a year ago.

The Third Round of the Cup-Ties was played today. The big clubs have come in for the first time, but their matches have not necessarily been chosen for this evening's eye-witness accounts, but rather matches that have an interest tor different parts of the country as well as for followers of teams outside the First Division ot the Football League.
The match between Everton and Grimsby Town will be reported by Ivan Sharpe , who gave a sports talk on ' Football Tactics ' on November 3, while the eye-witness account of the Tottenham Hotspur match will be given by our old friend, Charles M. Buchan. The ' Spurs have drawn the Cup-Tic winners two years in succession. Last year they beat Everton. Have they beaten Manchester City today ?

Leader, MONTAGUE BREARLEY
Conductor, STANFORD ROBINSON
Iolanthe was the seventh of the Savoy series of operas in order of production, and followed immediately upon the successful run of Patience, of which over 400 performances had been given. Indeed, all the Gilbert and Sullivan operas had phenomenally long runs, Iolanthe, for example, holding the Savoy stage for more than a year. Sullivan by this time was already a very popular public figure. He had been tor three years Director of the newly-founded Royal College of Music, he had recently succeeded Costa as conductor of Leeds Festival, and within a few months from the beginning of the Iolanthe run he was to be knighted.

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.
