EILEEN POWER
(Professor of Economic History in the University of London)
In last week's interlude Schools learnt all about the dramatic ' Hegira or flight, of Mohammed, the founder of the faith of Islam, from Mecca to Medina in A.D. 622, in order to escape from his enemies. This afternoon Professor Eileen Power will describe how the Mohammedan religion was carried by the Arabs as far west as the Atlantic and Spain, and eastward until it touched the fringe of the Chinese Empire.
Those of you who have read ' The
Arabian Nights' should be specially interested in this broadcast, for Professor Power will talk about the Caliphs of Bagdad—the ' Commanders of the Faithful' who are mentioned in those entertaining stories. You will also hear about Arab trade and about Arab learning which gradually found its way through Spain into Europe. The influence of the Mohammedans on medicine, chemistry, architecture, and philosophy was very great, and when they entered Spain they founded universities and spread their love of knowledge far and wide. They produced many famous men, one of the most noted having been Avicenna, a celebrated philosopher and physician, who lived from A.D. 979 to 1037.
The Arabs were, and are, great lovers of story-telling, but the story of their own history, especially since the advent of Islam, is quite as interesting as any of their fiction.

AMINA LUCCHESI (violin)
MARGERY CUNNINGHAM (pianoforte)
Joaquin Turina is one of the most distinguished of contemporary Spanish composers. Born in 1882 at Seville, he received his early musical training at Seville and Madrid, but in 1905 Turina went to Paris and entered the Schola Cantorum, where he worked with Vincent d'Indy for nine years.
Turina is both a facile composer and a clever craftsman. In his works, particularly the chamber and piano music in which he is chiefly interested, he shows deep national consciousness in that most of his rhythms and themes are derived from Spanish folk tunes. Turiria's second Violin Sonata is very characteristic of the composer's style. It is full of vigour and is grateful to play and listen to.

A Discussion between ERIC NEWTON and Sir REGINALD BLOMFIELD , R.A.,
F.S.A., Litt.D.
This evening, in Mr. Eric Newton's exhaustive inquiry into art, he is to put the first of his experts in the box in the person of one of the greatest modern architects of the orthodox school, Sir Reginald Blomfield, R.A.
Sir Reginald is the holder of positions of distinction too numerous to mention, and he is internationally famous for domestic and civil architecture and garden designs. His many publications on architecture are considered authoritative by countless students of the subject.

Produced by A. W. Hanson
This evening this popular comedian and broadcaster makes a welcome return to the microphone in a brand new radio revue. Following his broadcast in June last year, he played nine weeks in the Isle of Wight, and has been on the road ever since.
Sandy Powell , with his soft Yorkshire accent and flair for getting laughs, made his name with the ' Lost Policeman' record. It had over a million sale, and it used to be said it was to be found in every police station in Britain. He linked up his gramophone sketches in a road show and went on tour. He was lost as a single act on the halls, but made for life.
He has another flair-one for discovering talent. He spotted Jimmie Fletcher , the boy singer, at Sheffield twelve months ago. Then, in the summer, he found Maggie Stott , the mill girl from Oldham. It will be remembered that he introduced her to listeners in ' In Town Tonight'. Then three weeks ago the drummer at the Empire, Newcastle, said to him one evening : ' I wish you would hear my boy, Mr. Powell And so listeners are to hear Teddy Miles , the boy xylophonist, tonight.
Sandy Powell himself, his wife
Peggy Whitty , the mouth organ band-an item not often heard on the air-and last but not least, Sandy Powell 's one visitor Florence Oldham , who broadcast in Music-Hall last month, are likely to make this ' Album' the best yet opened.
This revue will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow night ,

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.
