Leader, Philip Whiteway
Conductor, E. GODFREY BROWN
ADELAIDE BEATTIE (soprano) Saint-Saens's symphonic poems are naturally based upon Liszt's, as are all symphonic poems written since Liszt's dav. All such works vary very slightly in construction, and have, as a rule, an artistic resemblance to that type of story known as the conte. They are almost always based upon some literary programme, and are as economical in their subject matter as is a really good concise short story. The plot of Danse Macabre is of the simplest. The scene is a graveyard at night; the clock strikes and Death appears, knocks on the graves, and starts tuning his fiddle. In answer to his summons, several skeletons appear and dance wildly, to Death's fiddling. Presently the cock crows, the dance ceases, and all disappear as day breaks.

: Finals

Wimbledon and Henley
Between 2.0 and 5.15 there will be running commentaries on the Lawn Tennis Championships at Wimbledon, described by Colonel R. H. BRAND and Captain H. B. T. WAKELAM
Listeners will also be taken over to Henley Regatta during the course of the afternoon. The times of the broadcasts from Henley, and particulars of the races that it is hoped to broadcast,
/ will be announced at 2.0.
(Copyright. See notice on page 69)
Tennis enthusiasts must not mind interruptions in the commentary on the Wimbledon Finals this afternoon-interruptions which will be made to give rowing enthusiasts a chance to hear how the Finals are going on at Henley. At 2 p.m. or as soon after as possible, the times and events to be broadcast from Henley will be announced. It is probable that these will be the Grand Challenge Cup (for international eights); the Ladies' Plate (for eights from public schools and Universities) ; the Stewards' Challenge Cup (for fours) ; and the Diamond Sculls.
The commentator will be in a position at the finish of the course by the stewards' box, and he will be able to see past the famous Phyllis Court all the way down the course to the ' distance signals '. Listeners should be able to hear the ripple of cheering coming up the course with the boats.
After each event, they will be taken back to Wimbledon. This was the one way this year to broadcast something of Henley Regatta-the Royal Ascot of rowing which is being broadcast for the first time.

How America is enjoying herself on the greatest of her National Holidays
Though it is 8 p.m. in this country, it is 3 p.m. in New York, and only noon in San Francisco, and listeners are to be taken to the United States to listen to the way America is spending the greatest of her public holidays. It is a sort of August Bank Holiday and Guy Fawkes Day rolled into one, and everywhere as it grows dusk small boys will be letting off fireworks, which they call fire crackers.
Listeners are to hear them; and, among other things, they will also hear the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, and the Mayor of Philadelphia making a speech. They will be taken to Chicago and hear the running commentary on the big baseball game, and to Arlington Park and hear the thunder of race-horses on the cinders. They will pay a visit as it were, to the Amusement Park in San Francisco, and to Princeton where preparations are being made for the trackmeet, or athletic meeting, to be held today. In short they will have a very good idea of how America is enjoying her holiday.'

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.

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.
