: THE BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

Leader, J. MOULAND BEGBIE
Conductor, GUY WARRACK
Jaromir Weinberger is the composer of the opera Schwanda the Bagpiper, which has been so extraordinarily successful. It has been presented in the opera houses of practically every musical country in the world, the libretto having been translated into fourteen languages.
The composer was born in 1896, in Prague, and had the advantage of studying with Max Reger in Leipzig. In 1922, he spent a short time in the United States as professor of composition at the Conservatorium of Ithica. The chief characteristics of his music consist of an engaging gift of melody, a piquant sense of harmony, and a modern conception of counterpoint.

An appeal on behalf of the WEST CORNWALL HOSPITAL, PENZANCE, by the Right Hon. WALTER RUNCIMAN ,
D.C.L., LL.D., M.P. The West Cornwall Hospital, Penzance, is in need of £ 20,000 to carry out , urgent extensions, for the present accommodation is quite inadequate to cope with the growing demands, and ' there is a long waiting list for beds.

One of Cornwall's contributions to the national well-being is to provide a playground for thousands of visitors. The West Cornwall Hospital. appeals for a thank-offering, so that it may be enabled to open its doors to all who need its help.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

: 'Bouquet of Beads'

A programme of Hungarian folk songs and folk music from Budapest
This relay is on the occasion of a popular peasant festival when men,, women and children come from all over the country, wearing their native costumes, to display their local dances and games. The Hungarian peasants are not as rich as they were before the war, and there was some danger that their traditional art would be lost. It was to preserve this that the Hungarian ' Bouquet de Perles ' Association was formed which arranges for groups of peasants to meet on certain Hungarian holidays in different parts of the country. The present festival lasts tor two days and is held in the city of Budapest. The name Bouquet de Perles', by the way, comes from the custom in certain country districts for the young men to wear in their hats a posy made of glass beads.

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.
