He that hath a pleasant face The hunt is up The Reproach
Over hill, over dale
Softly fall the shades of evening Spring, the sweet spring
The summer gale, that gently blows The Urchins' Dance
The Village Blacksmith What is got by sighing ?
See the rooks are homeward flying Song to Pan
Around the maypole tripping

' How the Plough changed Britain'
G. M. BOUMPHREY
This afternoon Geoffrey Boumphrey is to speak of farmers of long ago, and to discuss the question of why they farmed where they did. He will describe the end of Roman Britain ; the Dark Ages and the coming of the Angles and Saxons. Listeners will hear about the new farming that followed, and how it changed the country. New homes sprang up in new places. There had been Roman villas ; there were Saxon manors now.
Things still to be seen—narrow terraces cut in the hillside (lynchets),
I traces of the old ' strip ' fields—show I evidence of early farming in Britain.
Is there any such evidence in your district ?

ROBERT HALE in a Radiobiography
Presented by LESLIE BAILY and CHARLES BREWER and Compered by THE PLAYGOER
BINNIE HALE and SONNIE HALE will take part and the cast will also include
J. B. RowE IDA CRISPI
JOHN RORKE
BILLIE BAKER
MARJORIE ESSEX and FOSTER CARLIN
THE BBC REVUE CHORUS and VARIETY ORCHESTRA conducted by CHARLES SHADWELL
Star Gazing' will be repeated at 4.15 on Saturday afternoon in the Regional programme
This is the first broadcast in a new scries of radio programmes that Leslie Bailv and Charles Brewer have devised to alternate with their famous Scrap-books. In each programme a theatrical celebrity will come to the microphone and thread together the outstanding incidents of his or her career from the moment that ' a certain something' entered their blood, and they had to put on grease-paint and were to be thrilled by the call of ' Overture and beginners ' as long as they lived.
There could be no happier choice for this first programme than that popular actor, Robert Hale , who ran away from home to go on the stage, and married a girl who had done the same ; who began his career in one-night stands at thirty shillings a week, rose to the top of the ladder, and gave to the theatre, against his will, Sonnie and Binnie Hale.
Robert Hale has played in everything from red-nosed variety, through pantomime, blood-curdling melodrama, musical comedy and revue, to straight drama. Who does not remember his marvellous gifts of mimicry and impersonation ? Or the lightning changes he made in those flamboyant revues at the Alhambra at the beginning of the war ?
Today he is to broadcast his autobiography in typically breezy fashion. He will have Sonnie and Binnie with him. May one hope he will tell of his only failure-to prevent his children from going on the stage ?

: A Recital

LAELIA FINNEBERG (soprano)
GORDON WALKER (flute)
Though primarily an instrumental composer, Felix White has written nearly three hundred songs. Not all of these are for the usual medium of voice with piano, for there are about thirty for voice with orchestra, six unaccompanied, two with violin, two with 'cello, and the three with flute to be heard this evening. The first is a Theocritan invitation to Pan ; the second a celebrated epitaph, addressed to some unknown lady, by Ben Jonson. The flute part of the third song is particularly brilliant and elaborate in its depiction of the skylark described in a newly-discovered poem by the unfortunate Northamptonshire peasant-poet, John Clare.

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.
