ERIKA STORM (soprano)
Francois Adrien Boieldieu spent his early life in Rouen, composing operas to books written by his father, and pot-boilers, for which he received an average of ten shillings apiece.
He then went to Paris and wrote a number of operas, including The Caliph of Baghdad, the success of which so upset the academic Cherubini, that he remonstrated with the composer: ' Are you not ashamed of it ? ' he said. Boieldieu turned the other cheek, and asked the older man to teach him better musical manners. Cherubini did so, as a matter of fact, to his ultimate cost. Then Boieldieu went to Russia, gained great experience, and returned to take Paris by storm. For things had changed ; Cherubini and the Parisians were out of humour with one another, the city wanted amusement, and Boietdieu was their man. He wrote opera after opera, the most charming of which are Jeanne de Paris and hit Dame blanche. , The latter opera, founded on a mixture of Scott's The Monastery and Guy Mannering ,was, however, his last real success.

: Missionary Talk

' A Quaker School on Mount Lebanon' by CHRISTOFER NAISH
(Principal of Kingsmead Missionary Training Centre, Selly Oak, Birmingham)
Quakers are not particularly associated in the public mind with ordinary missionary work ; yet it is over fifty years since the Society of Friends established schools on the slopes of Mount Lebanon in Syria. Boys of many races and faiths educated there have filled important posts in many parts of the Near East.
This afternoon Christofer Naish, for a long time headmaster of the boys* school at Brummana on Lebanon, is to give an intimate and unusual picture of school life at a spot where racial feeling often runs high. Mr. Naish has just taken over the post of Principal of Kingsmead, one of the Selly Oak Colleges at Birmingham, where Methodist, Quaker, and other missionaries go for modern training.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE THEATRICAL LADIES' GUILD, by Ivor NOVELLO
The Theatrical Ladies' Guild was founded over "forty years ago to assist members of the theatrical profession in times of need ; it gives help in the way of clothing both for stage and private wear, assists financially by making special grants for rent, gives weekly allowances in cases of great distress, and provides medical, dental, and convalescent treatment.
The Guild is unique among theatrical charities, in that it is the only one which assists those employed in the theatre, not only actors and actresses, but stage hands, dressers, those employed in front of the theatre-in fact, all that great army of unseen workers who also minister to the amusement of the public.
The work of the Guild has been steadily increasing year by year, and the cases now helped annually number many thousands. Irene Vanbrugh is President of the Guild, which is governed by a General Committee consisting of well-known actresses, who carefully investigate every case that comes before them.
As Gerald du Maurier , who did so much for charities, was never tired of saying, the theatre is always among the first to help others ; actresses give their services for charity matinees throughout the year. Here is a chance to help the profession to which they belong.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Ivor Novello , Esq., [address removed]

: Tschiffely's Ride

'From Southern Cross to Pole Star'
An account of a journey on horseback from Buenos Aires to New York
The Traveller, A. F. TSCHIFFELY
The Narrator, VIOLET MARQUESITA
Music arranged by ROBERT BARRINGTON
Producer, LAURENCE GILLIAM
In 1925 Tschiffely set out from Buenos Aires with two Patagonian horses, Mancha and Gato, to ride to New York. The story of this famous journey is told by Tschiffely himself against a background of music of the countries through which he passed
The large number of listeners who must have read Aime Felix Tschiffely 's vivid and remarkable book,' Tschiffely's Ride ', which has recently gone into a cheap edition, will look forward to tonight's broadcast, for he is to tell the radio story of his great adventure-a ride of 10,000 miles, lasting two and a half years, on Argentine Criollo (Creole) horses from Buenos Aires to New York, which so amply justified his faith in their sterling breed. He took only two with him, alternatively riding one and using the other as a pack animal. Tonight's broadcast will be illustrated by special South American records, and the part of the narrator is to be taken by Violet Marquesita , well-known broadcaster and Tschiffely's wife.

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.
