' Your New Spring Hat'
Geoffry Swaffield
No woman who is free to listen this afternoon will be able to resist tuning in to a talk with so tantalising a title. And she who does will learn many things from Geoffry Swaffield , the well-known hat designer. How fatal it is for her to take anyone with her when she is going to buy a hat, and what a mistake it is to match a hat to her eyes unless she is very young ! She will learn that she can look just as nice in a 5s. lid. hat as in one costing guineas-and much nicer if the 5s. lid. one suits her.
Geoffry Swaffield admits that his role in life is to create a fashion-and then to kill it by creating a new one. But he is generous enough to advise listeners to have nothing to do with a fashion, whether in hats or hair, if it doesn't suit them.
Style of hat is very much governed by style of hair; and what is the new style to be ? Neither bobs, shingles, bingles, Eton crops, chignons, bangs, nor Antoinette curls, but ... let him tell you the secret. He is to conclude his talk by revealing some of the superstitions of the millinery trade.

: REGINALD NEW

at the BBC Theatre Organ Reginald New made his name on one of the very earliest British Theatre organs by giving 468 broadcast recitals from the Beaufort Cinema, Washwood Heath, Birmingham. When a great controversy about the merits and demerits of theatre organs was raging in the musical press, he was cited more than once as one of the most musicianly players on the air, even by people who normally held that theatre organists were a most nefarious crew. . From Washwood Heath he went up to the Regal, Kingston-on-Thames, in succession to Reginald Foort, and for nearly a year he has been playing at the State Cinema, Dartford. His first broadcast was on November 28, 1929. This evening's performance-his second on the new BBC organ-is his 600th broadcast.

: IT'S HAPPENING NOW

' Digging for a New England '
Howard Marshall and others
During the last few years even those outside hard-hit areas, have begun to realise the corrosion caused by continuous unemployment. Groups of young men from various walks of life are now going to industrial areas to do manual work - digging on allotments, making playing-fields, and so on - beside men who have no jobs. What is to be the effect of this contact between groups of people who a few years ago were never likely to have met?

: MUSIC FOR WIND INSTRUMENTS

The Woodwind and Brass of The BBC Orchestra
Conducted by Clarence Raybould This evening listeners will have the opportunity of hearing a programme of music played by the entire wind sections of the BBC Orchestra, and in a few weeks' time a further programme will be given for the string section. The two outstanding items are Strauss's Serenade and Goossens's masterly Fantasy for Nine Wind Instruments. Strauss's Serenade was written in 1881. It was this cleverly-scored piece that first attracted attention to the remarkable gifts of the future composer of Der Rosenkavalier and ' Ein Heldenleben '.

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.
