: A Symphony Concert THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section D)
Leader, PAUL BEARD
Conducted by ALBERT COATES
Many readers of THE Radio TIMES must have seen the film ' Turksib ', a pictorial record of the making of the Turkestan-Siberian Railway (completed in 1931). This symphony by Rimsky-Korsakov's pupil and son-in-law, Maximilian Steinberg , commemorates the same feat of engineering.
A note prefaced to the score explains that ' in his " Turksib " Symphony the composer has attempted, as far as is possible by instrumental means, to convey the fundamental idea of the struggle with the forces of nature, with the vast expanses of desert and wild mountain ranges, amid the peoples of a once backward and oppressed land..... Besides statistical documents, the composer has used as literary material poems by S. Kirsanov (" The Song of Turksib ") and Demyan Bedny (" Shaitan-arba ")'.

: 'Only a Shop Girl'

A Musical Burlesque by The Melluish Brothers
See centre column and the short article on page 11
' Melluish Brothers ' is as much a hall-mark on a radio burlesque as is a lion on silver. And Only a Shop Girl has all the quick wit and situation of Only a Mill Girl or any other ' Melluish ' burlesque. The show to be given tonight and to be broadcast tomorrow on the Midland wavelength has for its setting ' Rumble's store, with a hundred departments on every floor '. The proprietor's son is in love with a shop girl, and the position is complicated by the fact that her father has just done time for his father, and has sworn to be avenged. It would be 'just too bad' to reveal the denouement.
There are many capital numbers, including one with a refrain beginning ' Don't go to prison for pleasure, Don't go to jail for repose ', and another on Salesmanship, which elaborates on the theme ' There's nothing that can't be sold '.
Readers of THE RADJO TIMES will remember the brilliant contribution by the Melluish Brothers, ' The Fifth Form at St. Pontefract's, or little by little ' in the Christmas Number, 1933, which they followed up with their equally amusing 'All at sea, or the true story of the Betty Martin ', in the issue for May 18, 1934.

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.
