Foreign Affairs
CHARLES TOWER
Mr. Charles Tower , who is to give a talk today on Foreign Affairs, is a journalist who has had an adventurous career in many parts of the world. He was a foreign correspondent in Berlin in 1905 and a special correspondent in Turkey during the first Balkan War. He was in Austria after the Sarajevo murder ; he was attacked by the crowd in Berlin after the outbreak of the Great War, arrested on a charge of espionage, and taken to the Central Police Head-quarters in Alexanderplatz nominally under sentence of death, though he was released by the intervention of the American Embassy.
Throughout the war he acted as correspondent in France, Italy, Switzerland, and Holland ; crossed the German frontier immediately after the Armistice to attend the Constituent assembly at Weimar ; was subsequently arrested in turn by the Communists and by the White Guards.
Subsequently, he went to Ireland,
Spain, and North Africa, and then for some time to Ceylon. He is now London Editor of The Yorkshire Post. It is good news for Sixth Forms that he is to give a second talk on Foreign Affairs on February 21.

: THE LONDON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Leader, W. H. REED
Conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON
(First Performance)
The Overture, The Sea Venturers, by Frederic Austin, of which this will be the first performance, is one of the composer's more important works for orchestra. Mr. Austin, who was born in 1872, is a rare example of a composer who was also a singer; his appearances at Covent Garden with Sir Thomas Beecham before the War will not have been forgotten; and in 1924 he was appointed Artistic Director of the B.N.O.C. But his name will always be associated with the Beggar's Opera, which ran for 1,463 nights at the Lyric, Hammersmith. He also composed the incidental music to The Knight of the Burning Pestle in 1921, and to the Insect Play, in 1922, and for Congreve's Way of the World, in 1924. He is the author of a Rhapsody for orchestra, ' Spring and a Symphonic Poem, ' Isbella '. His works have been played with success both in this country and abroad. Debussy's L'Apres-midi d'un faune is a musical interpretation of a poem by the French poet, Stephane Mallarmé. It has been said that the poem is so elusive in meaning, so subtle in its refinements of language, that it is practically untranslatable into another tongue. Debussy's is perhaps the only medium suited to an exposition of the poem. The picture is of a faun who waking at dawn in the forest, tries to recall what happened to him before he fell asleep. His musings are confused with visions of nymphs who spent the afternoon with him, and the possibility that the whole thing has been a dream coloured with the music of his own flute.

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.
