: Friday Midday Concert

Under the direction of JOHAN HOCK from Queen's College Chambers Lecture Hall, Birmingham
THE BIRMINGHAM PHILHARMONIC
STRING ORCHESTRA
Leader, Norris Stanley
Conducted by HAROLD GRAY
Peter Warlock had all the real antiquarian's delight in finding such buried treasures as the quaint old book on which this Suite is founded. It is a very early work on dancing by a sixteenth-century priest who took the name of Arbeau-so old that the very names of most of the dances have vanished from modern ken. But the six movements in the Suite, set forth with all the interest of modem orchestration, can yet recall the simple character and grace of that far-off day.

: Talk for Sixth Forms

' Young China'
G. B. BARBOUR , Ph.D.
Here is an opportunity for sixth forms to learn the difficulties of boys and girls of their own age in China, where the old and the new generations are in conflict-the youth of China eagerly absorbing the freshness of Western ideas, their elders clinging stubbornly to tradition.
Dr. Barbour, who is Honorary
Lecturer in Geography at University College, London, and was for a long time a university professor in Peiping, spent twelve years in China and travelled over 30,000 miles by camel; aeroplane, sedan-chair, ox-cart, and wheelbarrow, as well as in more normal ways, making expeditions into Mongolia and the interior of China.
He gave several talks on the geography of China to schools last term and today he will not only deal with a problem that is a problem of the Far East as a whole as well as of China, but endeavour to tell listeners how it is likely to solve itself in the future.

: ' In Your Garden'

C. H. MIDDLETON
A good, and at the same time inexpensive garden library is indispensable to all gardeners, for, however experienced they may be, they have need to refer to this matter and that matter throughout the year. This evening Mr. C. H. Middleton is to bring another popular broadcaster to the microphone in Mr. T. Hay , Superintendent of the Royal Parks, and they will discuss, among other things, the important question of the ideal books for a gardener.

: ' An Adventure in Dialect'

Illustrated by gramophone records of various dialects current throughout the United Kingdom GEOFFREY WHITWORTH
In these days when countrymen and women dresstike their town cousins and are losing with each succeeding generation the speech of their ancestry, dialect is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. You may go to Scotland and not know you have left England, except that people speak rather better English than you have heard on the way north.
But dialect still exists, and has been preserved by the British Drama League by means of records against the day when it dies out. This evening listeners are to hear the same story told respectively by natives of Devonshire, Lancashire, the Scottish Border, and Aberdeen. Then the Yorkshire East Riding is to have its turn in a record called ' Yorkshire Sayings ', and dialect of Norfolk, Sussex, and the Irish Free State will also be heard.

: A Pianoforte Recital

by IRENE KOHLER
An Albeniz Programme
Aragon
From Iberia
Malaga
Evocation
El puerto (The Harbour) Eritana
The twelve pieces that constitute ' Iberia ' show Albeniz at his very best. Few composers of note have been more unequal in their output than this prolific Spaniard, and these scenes from different parts of Spain, written toward's the end of Albeniz's life, when he had come under the influence of Debussy, are very far removed from the multitude of salon pieces that he had turned out in earlier days.
Nevertheless, the influence of Debussy comes second to that of Spanish popular music, particularly that of Andalusia. (Though Albeniz himself was a Catalan.) The conflicting rhythms of castanets, suggestions of guitar harmonies, the arabesque, semi-oriental melodies of Andalusian folk music-these are the basic elements of Albeniz's mature style.

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.
