BEATRICE HEWITT (pianoforte) The wealthy Russian music-publisher,
Belaiev, himself a fine amateur viola-player, was a passionate lover of chamber music. Indeed, it might almost be said that Russian chamber music indirectly owes more to him than directly to any single composer. In 1886 Rimsky-Korsakov, Borodin, Liadov, and Glazunov jointly commemorated his birthday in a quartet, each movement of which is based on a theme derived from his name: B (the German name for B flat), ]a (the French for A), F. In February of the following year Borodin died and when Belaiev's birthday came round again only three of the collaborators were left to celebrate it in 1887 with this delightful little ' Birthday' Quartet. It will be heard this afternoon on a string orchestra instead of on a string quartet.

: THE ECLIPSE STAKES

A Running Commentary on the Race by R. C. LYLE , broadcast from
Sandown Park Racecourse
(Copyright. See notice on page 22)
For the first time the BBC is to broadcast one of the richest and most important races of the year. The forty-ninth renewal of the Eclipse Stakes is to be run today at Sandown Park, under the lovely woods of Esher. It is run over a distance of one mile and two furlongs, and is open to three year olds and four year olds only, entire colts and fillies, handicapped at weight for age, with certain allowances.
In theory, the best three year old of this year meets the best three year old of last, and more than once in the past have consecutive Derby winners been opposed, but so strenuous is the race on Epsom Downs today that they seldom accept the challenge. In 1892 and 1893 that great horse Orme, son of a mighty horse in Ormonde, won the race two years in succession, a feat that has been accomplished in this generation by both Buchan and Polyphontes.
Last year it was won by the 1934 Derby winner Windsor Lad, but the 1935 Derby winner Bahram did not oppose him, so in 1935 the two sons of Blandford were both unbeaten. Interest in this year's race lies in the fact that Theft, second in last year's Eclipse and fourth in the 1934 Derby, can take on Thankerton, third in this year's Derby, and Rhodes Scholar, whom many say would have won the Derby if he had been able to run. And so if they meet, some idea at any rate can be arrived at as to whether this year's, or last year's, three year olds are better.

: 'The Ghost Train' by ARNOLD RIDLEY

This admirable thriller by Arnold Ridley was put on by Harry Cohen (whose wife, Edna Dayies , was so good in the part of the little honeymoon bride) at Golders Green Hippodrome in July, 1925, and came to the St. Martin's in November. It was revived at the Comedy in 1929, and again at the Criterion five years later.
A thrilling account of the struggle
The Ghost Train had for its place in the sun before it became established and won sensational success is told on page 6 in an article by Bernard Merivale who had so much to do with its presentation.
' The Ghost Train' was broadcast in the Regional programme last night

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.
