The little things count in food as well as in other matters. This lesson shows that health depends not only on the quantity of protein, carbohydrate, and fat eaten, but also on the presence of minute amounts of salts and vitamins.
A few of the more important salts and vitamins will be described, and mention will be made of the ill effects caused by their absence. The foods capable of correcting these deficiencies will be named.

Relayed from the Pavilion, Bournemouth
The Mozart Symphony in C major (K.338) was one of the three symphonies that he wrote at Salzburg in 1779-80, the period of his service with the Archbishop. In 1781 occurred the celebrated incident of the kicking of Mozart by the Archbishop's steward, in consequence of which he left Salzburg for ever.
This delightful work, one of the finest of all Mozart's earlier symphonies — ' all air and fire', as one critic has described it-was long unaccountably neglected, but is now an established favourite. The champagne-like sparkle of the first movement, the grace of the second and the fire of the third are unforgettable.

: Pianoforte Concerto No. 3, in

(Soloist, MOISEIWITSCH)
In his recollections Rachmaninov tells us that his third Piano Concerto ' was written (in 1909) especially for America, and I was to play it for the first time in New York under the direction of Walter Damrosch. As during the previous summer I had not found much time for practising and was not familiar with some passages, I took a dumb piano on the boat with me and practised dunng the journey. I believe it is the only time I have resorted to this mechanical toy, which, however, at the time, proved very useful.' This Concerto, containing some of Rachmaninov's finest music and written with superb mastery for the soloist, was extremely well received and a second performance immediately followed under the famous conductor and composer Gustav Mahler.

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.
