Solo violoncello, LEILY HOWELL from the Pavilion, Bournemouth
In Delius's A Village Romeo and Juliet Sali and Vredi are the Romeo and Juliet' who have suffered in their love for each other from the bitter enmity of their parents. They meet again after a cruel separation, and determine to have one day of pleasure together. They go to a neighbouring fair, happy in each other's company ; there they are recognised and worried by importunate questions. Anxious to be wholly alone, they leave the fair and walk to the Paradise Garden, which is an inn, formerly the manor house of a ruined country estate. The lovely music describes their walk, idyllic, but saturated with a sense of impending tragedy.
The title of Bloch's Rhapsody for 'cello and piano, ' Schelomo ', means Solomon. It is only one part of a cycle of Jewish music in which the composer would present something of the great spirit of his own race.

: John Loudon McAdam: 'The Colossus of Roads'

Died November 26, 1836
Mrs. Roy Devereux
In his book, 'The Present System of Road-making', which was published by order of the House of Commons, and went into nine editions, McAdam laid down in a single paragraph the principle of his system - a system which exists to this day. The McAdam road was cheap and easily made; and the word 'McAdam' soon passed into the language.
His work played as great a part as Telford's in making the Industrial Revolution possible. Yet his only reward was three grants of £2,000 each, which the House of Commons only made after exhaustive enquiry had made it clear that he had not profited in any way from the wide adoption of his method.
Mrs. Roy Devereux, who tonight is to tell the story of his life and work, is his great-great-grand-daughter, and the author of the first full-length biography of him, published last month.

: Night Shift

A broadcast from Tower Bridge
There is a peculiarly human fascination in knowing how others are working while, with our day's work behind us, we sit over the fire, and-whether for that reason or not-Night Shift programmes like the one from Beachy Head lighthouse and the other from a lambing pen on the Wiltshire Downs were popular successes. The third
' Night Shift' may be an even greater success, for listeners are to visualise, and even hear, the great bridge being lifted , and a ship sailing through the gap towards the sea.
They will hear orders being given, bells ringing, as the ship moves slowly along ; a hail to the captain, the captain's good-bye. Something of all that goes on will be conveyed by actual sounds and by the commentary given by T. Woodrooffe.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
