' Electricity from Niagara Falls'
ERIC ASHBY, D.Sc.
Last week you heard a talk about the production of oil in Persia, or Iran; next week you are to hear about coal mining in Western Pennsylvania; today you are to hear about another source of power-electricity.
Dr. Eric Ashby will describe a visit to Niagara, and will tell you how a passenger, seated in a cradle that travels along a rope, is- carried across the whirlpool rapids 150 feet below. He will tell you how the waterfalls are formed, their source being the lakes west of Niagara, and how the falls are used to make electric light for a million people.

: THE SCOTTISH STUDIO ORCHESTRA

This ' Witches' Dance' was the first composition of the young American composer to win widespread popularity. MacDowell wrote far more important and more individual things in later years, but the ' Witches' Dance' keeps its well-deserved place in the repertoire of light music. The piece shows the influence of Joachim Raff , under whom MacDowell had studied at Frankfurt; but it is also touched by the American's own Puckish spirit.

The arrival of the United Empire Loyalists on the shore of the Bay of Fundy in Old Nova Scotia in the year 1783 ; the settlement of the Loyalists ; the Wentworth Historical Society at Hamilton, Ontario, and Mrs. Fessenden; the observance of Empire Day in the Dominion of Canada and throughout the Empire; the celebration of Empire Day, 1935, leading to a message from
[the Dominion by the Rt. Hon. R. B. BENNETT ,
Prime Minister of Canada
The first of a series of Empire Day programmes was broadcast in 1933 from the United Kingdom under the title, ' News of Home.' In 1934, the first overseas contribution was made to this series from Australia, and this year it is Canada's turn to mark for the Empire the celebration of Empire Day. The principal broadcasting organisations of the Empire will, it is hoped, participate in this scheme. The schedule proposed for future years, in collaboration with overseas broadcasters, includes programmes from India (with Ceylon), New Zealand, and South and East Africa.

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.
