JOSEPH SLATER (flute)
MARIE KORCHINSKA (harp) (First broadcast performance in England)(First broadcast performance in England)
Joseph Slater comes of a not very musical family and took to flute-playing more or Jess accidentally. As a boy he used to ' mess about' (as he says) with a penny whistle with such success that his father thought he 'had better have a decent one to play on '. The 'decent one ' took the form of a piccolo, and at the age of ten young Slater found himself launched on a career as a flautist. He made his first London appearance in 1922 and broadcast first in 1924. He has been doing it ever since !
Marie Korchinska was born in Moscow and studied at the Conservatoire there, winning its much-prized Gold Medal and soon afterwards becoming harp professor in succession to her teacher. During the last few years she has been living in England.

: ' Men Talking '—4 AMBROSE HEATH

Ambrose Heath is well known as a brilliant culinary journalist and broadcaster, but tonight he is to appear as himself. And as for some years he was closely connected with the fund organised to save the old Trafalgar battleship Implacable, listeners may perhaps expect some reference to the anniversary of commemoration today and to our greatest admiral. Trafalgar and the hen-coops on board the Victory are a far cry from the elaborations of modern cookery; and as spontaneity is the essence of success in such a one-way conversation as this series implies, listeners should not look for any evidence of the speaker's ruling passion. It will certainly not be a cookery talk, though it may have food as its raison d'être.

: A Night alone in the Bush' Commander R. F. LEE-DILLON

Here is a talk haunted by the unknown terrors of the darkness in the Angola bush, in Portuguese West Africa, when who knows what horror may be the fate of the man who is left behind ! Listeners will remember that Commander R. F. Lee-Dillon, who tells his own story this evening, gave a talk not so long ago about his experiences in the Foreign Legion. Previous to his service with it, he held a commission in our Navy.

Mickey 'has almost succeeded in becoming that rather dull thing, a National Figure. The only thing that stops him is that he can't be dull'.
So wrote John Watt in a recent issue of THE RADIO TIMES.
Created more than seven years ago by Walt Disney, Mickey Mouse and company immediately delighted low-brows and highbrows alike; and his broadcasting antics are proving a similar success.

: Chamber Music and Poetry THE GRINKE TRIO:

Frederick Grinke (violin);
Florence Hooton (violoncello) ; Dorothy Manley
(pianoforte)
Reader, GEORGE RYLANDS
Although nobody, considering the question in cold detachment, could be quite sure which of the two splendid
Trios by Schubert is his favourite, most people are quite certain, while actually hearing one or other that it is not only the finer of the two but among the best chamber music existence.
In the present age of hurrv, when nobody has time to spare, it is sometimes criticised as being too long and too full of repetitions. But all of it is so splendidly melodious, so full of a the grace and charm which Schubert, almost more than any other master knows how to give us, that few would wish to have it shortened.
The bold, sweeping tune, with which it opens, is irresistible, and so is the laughing gaiety of most of the last movement; the other two, each in Its way, form real contrasts with what goes before and comes after, and in spite of its length, the Trio has a wonderful sense of compactness.

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.

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.
