'Touch '
R. C. GARRY , Ch.B., D.Sc.,
Professor of Physiology, University College, Dundee, in the University of St. Andrews
(From Edinburgh)
There are three senses in the skin-the temperature sense, the pain sense, and the sense of touch. The temperature sense tells us whether heat is coming into or going out of our body. Pain gives us warning of injury. Touch, however, gives us much more information. When an object touches the skin, this sense tells us its size, helps to tell its shape, and lets us know whether it is rough or smooth, soft or hard.

: THE BBCMILITARY BAND

Conductor, B. Walton O'Donnell
March (The Queen of Sheba) Gounod Saint-Saens wrote two symphonic poems based on episodes from the life of Hercules-' Hercules's Youth ' and ' Omphale's Spinning-Wheel '. The former describes the choice which was put before the hero in his adolescent days ; on the one hand idleness and soft pleasures, on the other struggles and trials of endurance, at the end of which there shone through the flames of a funeral pyre the reward of immortality. Hercules scorned the offer of dalliance, choosing the harder way ; even without the aid of words Saint-Saens's music leaves us in no doubt of his destiny.

: PALACE OF VARIETIES

On January 5 listeners were introduced to this delightful and imaginary music-hall, and watched, as it were, the performance at the second house. They will remember that Ralph Truman and Horace Percival sat in the stalls, and described the turns before they came on. So good was the show that they agreed before leaving that they would come again on January 27-tonight-the second house.
They will see, and listeners will hear: Bertha Willmott , singer of robust pantomime choruses ; Claude Hulbert and Enid Trevor , that happily married couple who quarrel only for the benefit of listeners ; Neil McKay , well-known Scottish comedian ; Ella Shields , creator of ' Burlington Bertie'; and, last but not least, ' Parade of Ragtime', a pot-pourri of broken rhythm, featuring Peter Bernard (original singer in this country of ' Alexander's Ragtime Band '), the Dalton Sisters (girls all three), the Three Admirals (all men), Arthur Sandford at the piano, and Reginald Foort at the BBC Theatre Organ.
Such is the Palace of Varieties, devised by Bryan Michie and presented by Ernest Longstaffe. John Weaver will conduct the BBC Variety Orchestra, seated in the imaginary orchestra-pit.

SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Leader, PAUL BEARD
Conductor, ADRIAN BOULT
When the Croydon Philharmonic Society was founded in 1914 by Alan Kirby , its present conductor, it numbered sixty members. During the War its activities were suspended, but started again in 1919. Now it has one hundred and sixty members.
The Choir has specialised in Elgar's oratorios, and in 1933 Elgar conducted it at Croydon in a performance of The Apostles. In 1935 an Elgar Festival was organised and the profits were devoted to endowing a bed for musicians at the Croydon General Hospital. The Choir's last appearance in Queen's Hall was in 1935, when it gave a performance of Verdi's Requiem under Dr. Boult, and in March next Mr. Kirby will conduct a performance of The Apostles at Queen's Hall.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
