' The Biography of a Squirrel'
HENRY WILLIAMSON
Today, in his first talk to schools, the author of 'Tarka the Otter' and 'Salar the Salmon', who has been broadcasting lately in the evening programme, is to tell a real story of his own woodland adventurings with the red squirrel. Not so many years ago one had only to go into a wood to see one, and he was as charming as he looked on the cover of the Autumn Number of The Radio Times. But alas! he can't live with the larger American grey squirrel that was introduced into Britain in 1899 and has multiplied everywhere.
The red squirrel weighs about fourteen ounces, his wife even less. They pair in April or May, and their children, usually four, are born hairless and blind. Their nest (or drey) is a domed structure of sticks.

Glinka's Life for the Tsar, commonly spoken of as ' the first Russian opera ', is about to celebrate its centenary. It was first performed at the Petersburg Imperial Opera on December 9
(November 27 according to the Russian calendar), 1836. Actually it was neither the first opera composed to Russian words nor the first opera by a Russian composer. But it was the first important work of the first Russian composer to win an international .reputation and, in that sense, may be said to mark the beginning of modern Russian music.
The very simple plot is based on an historical incident of doubtful authenticity : a peasant, Ivan Susanin , is said to have saved the life of the young Tsar Michael (about 1612-13) at the cost of his own life by leading a body of Polish troops into a marshy forest from which they were unable to escape. Incidentally, the opera was originally named Ivan Susanin and, since the Russian Revolution, it has always been performed under that title

A talk on International Communications
Sir HENRY BUNBURY , K.C.B.
This evening, in the second talk of this new series, Sir Henry Bunbury , Cpntroller and Accountant-General of the Post Office, is to show how countries throughout the world, however they may disagree on other matters, have combined together for the common good in one thing at least-that of postal communication. The history of postal communication is an absorbing one, beginning as far back as 1853-a story of growth, goodwill, and efficiency, so that the postal service throughout the world is one of the bright spots of modem times.

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.
