Many listeners may have heard of Bordeaux wines, of Medoc clarets, of a white wine called Sauterne. These, and others, are all made from grapes gathered in this district, and shipped from the port of Bordeaux to the world.

: A Symphony Concert

THE B B C MIDLAND ORCHESTRA
Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by LESLIE HEWARD
Albert Roussel was born at Tourcoing in 1869. He was educated at a Naval College. Mathematics was his special study and music an absorbing diversion. In 1887 Roussel joined a training ship, and after the customary course of training went to sea and served on a number of ships.
Some years later he was advised to resign from the Navy and- study composition. Roussel accordingly went to Paris and had lessons from Gigout, and then after meeting Vincent d'Indy became one of the latter's first pupils at the newly formed Schola Cantorum. Two years later Roussel carried off a prize from the Société des Compositeurs, and in 1902 was appointed professor at the Schola Cantorum. During the war he served on the Marne, Somme, and at Verdun.
Roussel's compositions are conspicuous for quality rather than quantity. His orchestral works include three symphonies of which the third, to be heard this afternoon, is a late work.

: I Knew a Man—1

Thomas Henry Huxley
H. G. WELLS
This is the first talk in a new series in which some distinguished man of today will say something of the life and achievements of some distinguished man of yesterday, whom he personally knew. Tonight, H. G. Wells will talk from his own memories of Thomas Henry Huxley.
He was in Huxlev's class at the Normal School of Science (the Royal College of Science today). The great biologist was then ' a yellow-faced, square-faced old man, with bright little brown eyes, lurking as it were in caves under his heavy grey eyebrows, and a mane of grey hair brushed back from his wall of forehead '. Wells assesses him as a very great man. And listeners will be eager to hear this talk today about the man who taught and inspired Wells.

Three years ago Miss de la Porte joined the Sadler's Wells company and has since appeared at Covent Garden and Glyndebourne.

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.
