He will explain how a simple bird table can be made even by the most inexperienced amateur, and describe some simple gadgets for feeding blue tits.

' The End of the Stavisky Case *
Kenneth Adam
On January 18 last year. ended in Paris the trial of the twenty-one alleged accomplices of the dead swindler, Stavisky, and with it a stormy chapter in French politics which had involved the downfall of successive cabinets, the murder of a judge, and rioting in Paris. But 1936 was to be a year notable for the number of trials with a political significance and with repercussions that spread across frontiers. The Moscow trial which ended in the execution for treason of Zinovieff and other old Bolshevik leaders, was the most spectacular. Others, the cases of Andre, the German, Antikianen, the Finnish general, and Prestes, the Brazilian radical, aroused great public interest.
Kenneth Adam 's reconstructions of those trials, which were full of drama, will include an analysis of the motives behind them and of their effect both inside and outside the countries in which they took place.

Garda Hall (soprano)
Schubert completed his Fourth Symphony in April, 1816, when he was nineteen. It had to wait more than thirty-three years for its first performance, when the Viennese musical society ' Euterpe ' chose it for their first concert on November 19, 1849.
The Symphony is sometimes known as the ' Tragic '. The title was not given by Schubert himself and is not particularly apt, for, in spite of the rather sombre introduction, and the passionate course of the first movement, the symphony as a whole is by no means tragic. The slow movement contains some of Schubert's loveliest melodies, and the finale (after a fascinating minuet) is fiery and spirited.

Arnold J. Toynbee ,
Research Professor of International
History in the University of London
Tonight, in the second talk in this series, Professor Arnold Toynbee is to discuss the modern world's new
Faiths, which were mentioned in the opening talk last week.
Professor Toynbee is as well-known an authority on such subjects as Greek thought and civilisation as he is on modern international affairs. His qualifications and abilities enable him to serve both as Director of Studies in the Royal Institute of International Affairs and as Research Professor of International History in the University of London. He has brought a. fresh and thoroughly well-informed mind to a survey of the New Europe, and is acutely conscious of national post-war tendencies.

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.
