History in the Making
' I believe in Tom, Dick, and Harry '
JOHN HILTON
(Professor of Industrial Relations, in the University of Cambridge)
Previous talks in this series have been on big affairs, big events, big personalities. Today John Hilton is going to talk of democracy, and he will show how you who are listening are really ' history in the making ', whether your names are Tom, Dick, and Harry, or Peggy, Joan, and Kate. It is you, now young, who will be the men and women of the future, and to you Professor John Hilton is to explain his .creed. His sympathy with everyone who finds life difficult (he found it especially difficult, and none of you are going to find it easy) has helped to make him one of the most popular broadcasting personalities today.

2.5 Round the Countryside
' The Story of the Eel'
C. C. GADDUM
Today C. C. Gaddum is going to talk about the marvellous life of the common eel. The story starts in early autumn when the male and female eels leave the ponds, lakes, and streams, and congregate in large numbers in the estuaries of the big rivers. Then comes their big and perilous journey across the Atlantic to their breeding grounds near the Saragossa Sea, where they breed and die. In due course the little eels are bom, and start to find their way back all alone to the rivers and lakes from which their parents came. It is a long journey, lasting three years, and so full of dangers that comparatively few reach the end of it. The survivors ascend the rivers, and even find their way to water miles away, across land.
Teachers will find it helpful to have illustrations of an eel, and a young eel, or elver, to show their class.

' Shortage of Principal Boys for
Pantomime'
F. L. STEVENS
Seven years ago there were only 120 pantomimes produced in Great Britain and people began to sigh and nod their heads and say good-bye to all those principal boys. But they were wrong. Pantomime is . booming. There are now some three hundred in preparation, fifty more than last year, when the demand was so great that it was feared there were not enough Cinderellas and Dick Whittingtons to go round.
This afternoon listeners are to hear what Christmas has in store for them, for F. L. Stevens is to disclose some of the pantomime secrets.

THE LONDON WIND QUINTET :
Robert Murchie (flute) ; Alec Whittaker (oboe) ; Frederick Thurston (clarinet) ; Frederick Wood (bassoon);
Edmund Chapman (horn) ;
ERNEST LUSH (pianoforte)
There are few traces of the folk-song element in the music of Felix White. One of the exceptions is the present work for wind quintet, Two Folk-Song Fancies, which was written in 1934. These two pieces, both of which are based on eighteenth-century tunes, are easy to follow, being in the manner of free, informal variations on the old tunes, which are heard every time in their entirety as each instrument takes a turn in the discourse.

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.

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.
