'Kenya'
L. S. B. LEAKEY , Ph.D
On the eve of his departure for Kenya, Dr. Leakey is to talk about the Colony in which he was born. His parents were missionaries among an African tribe called the Kikuyu, and he was one of the first English children to be born in the Kenya Highlands. He was brought up among the Kikuyu, and speaks their language as well as he speaks English.
Dr. Leakey is a distinguished anthropologist and archaeologist, perhaps best known for his popular book, 'Adam's Ancestors'. He frequently broadcasts in the evening programmes and has broadcast twice before to schools.

: A CHORAL CONCERT

The St. Michael's Singers
The BBC Orchestra
(Section D)
Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Harold Darke
Stanley Riley (baritone) (Soloist, STANLEY RILEY )The St. Michael's Singers were founded in 1919 with the object of giving those who are engaged in daily work in the City of London an opportunity of taking part in, and listening to, performances-of the best choral music both accompanied and a cappella ; and especially to give annual performances of J. S. Bach's Christmas Oratorio and St. John Passion. Since then the Society has developed, and its influence has extended far beyond the boundaries of the City. The ' Singers ' are strictly limited to eighty picked voices, who rehearse weekly during the whole year . In addition to the special annual Bach performances, they hold an annual four days' Musical Festival each November.

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.
