LADY MUIR
Through long practice that wide traveler
Lady Muir has learned to speak many languages and to enter quickty into the life of a country new to her. Her series of talks two years ago. 'Through Three Continents ', showed her to be an admirable broadcaster, and one with a rare gift of bringing a picture to the listener's mind. In this new series she is describing some of the ]esser-known parts of the world, and is dealing not so much with scenery as with the legends and customs of the people. Listeners will remember the talks she gave last year in 'Impressions from Abroad ' and ' Other Harvests '—the latter on sunnower seeds in Bulgaria, a country she knows by heart.

: Sports Talk: Peace and Safety - A Talk on Mountaineering: Wilson H. Hey

It was not until 1857, when Sir Alfred Wills made an ascent of the Wetterhorn, that the vogue of mountain climbing started. To the uninitiated the sport makes little appeal. One's imagination too easily conjures up terrifying visions of a slipping foothold and a frayed rope, followed by a nightmare plunge into space. Wilson H. Hey, the well-known member of the Alpine Club, is to point out this evening just how far this fairly general aversion from mountain climbing is justified.
While many of the dangers, in his opinion, have been exaggerated, Mr. Hey does not discount the caution that should always be an indispensable part of the good mountaineer's equipment. Nor, for that matter, does he discount the thrills listeners will hear, for example, of his amazing ride on an avalanche.

Delibes, like Sullivan, wrote both church and theatre music; at one part of his life he held appointments in church and theatre at the same time. Successful in his own lifetime, and distinguished by many of the highest honours which France can offer her citizens, he cherished the ambition of composing serious opera, but it was as a composer of tight opera and ballet music that he was most popular and that he is now remembered.
The opera "Le roi l'a dit" is based upon an old-world French subject, and was produced at the Opera Comiquc in 1873. Though the opera itself was not a great success in Paris, the Overture still holds its place in concert repertoires.

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.
