: SYDNEY BAYNES AND HIS BAND

For the third year in succession, Sydney Baynes and his Band are to do the whole of the accompanying for Radiolympia, which opens on August 14, and is to run until August 24. In place of his march, ' Here Goes', which used to be the signature tune for all ' Music-Hall ' programmes, the famous composer of the Destiny Waltz is writing a new march for the occasion. Those who go to Radiolympia and those who listen will hear ' Off we Go' for the first time.
Sydney Baynes is above the weather just now, for he has just won a golf competition-the Friern Trophy, presented by the North Middlesex Golf Club, of which he is a member. But he refuses to disclose his handicap.

: 'Lost Horizon'

A Radio Play by JAMES HILTON AND BARBARA BURNHAM
Based on the Novel by James Hilton
This imaginative play, so different from the same author's quiet and sentimental Mr. Chips, made as big a hit as ' Chips ' when it was first broadcast in June last year. There is in it all the grip and fascination that Guy Boothby Sonjured up in his Pharos the Egyptian ; there is, consciously or no, in James Hilton 's Conway some of the characteristics and appeal of Lawrence of Arabia.
Can a greater thrill be imaginable than the abduction of an aeroplane with her convoy of passengers, and their landing in the Valley of Lost Horizon in the wilds of Tibet ? Here is romance and adventure of the highest order to keep the listener keyed up. A monastery on the roof of the world. A High Lama with a secret. A hidden civilisation where least expected and there for purposes not remotely guessed. And an hour's entertainment for all who choose to hear it, in the form of one of the most cleverly constructed of all radio plays.
The part of the High Lama is to be taken by Esmé Percy, who will be remembered for his strong characterisation of the part of Ambrose Applejohn. A new play by Barbara Couper , who plays the lady missionary, will be broadcast in a week or two. Barbara Burnham , who adapted Lost Horizon with James Hilton from Hilton's novel, also collaborated with him in the adaptation of Mr. Chips.
' Lost Horizon ' will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow night

César Cui's father was a French officer who fought in Russia, and was left behind during Napoleon's retreat from - Moscow in 1812. He settled in that country and married a Lithuanian lady.

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.
