: QUENTIN MACLEAN

at the Organ of the Trocadero Cinema,
Elephant and Castle
Early next month Quentin Maclean — ' Mac ' to his fellow organists, who are among his most ardent admirers -will have completed six years of regular weekly broadcasting from the Trocadero, Elephant and Castle. He was one of the four organists chosen to play at the opening of the BBC Theatre Organ last October, and one of the first to give a personal show on it, which he did a fortnight after the official opening. Last May he opened the magnificent organ at the Dome, Brightor,-the first ' all-purpose ' instrument (cinema, church, and concert organ in one) to be erected in this country.

Interlude
2.5 Stories from World History
' A Medieval Adventurer,
Marco Polo '
A Dramatic Interlude written by WRAY HUNT
Today listeners are to go on a long journey, from Venice to China, with the first Europeans ever to visit that country, Maffeo Polo , Niccolo Polo , and Marco Polo. In those days-the thirteenth century-it took over three years, for men had to travel on foot, on horseback, or by camel.
The people of Venice knew of China, for many of the goods in which they dealt were brought from there, though they called it Cathay. China, or Cathay, was governed by a man called Kublai Khan , who was one of the fierce Tartars who had conquered so much of the East. The two elder Polos-Maffeo and Niccolo -had been well received at his court, came back to' Europe, and returned with Niccolo's son, Marco Polo, whose name is very much better known than that of either his father or his uncle because of his famous book, ' The Travels of Marco Polo '.
Today in a dramatic interlude listeners are to hear how the three Polos arrived in China, and how Marco Polo described the terrible sufferings of their journey. They will hear how he became a great favourite with the Khan during the seventeen years that the Polos remained in China ; how he was appointed Governor for three years ; and how the Polos were of great service to the Emperor of China.
2.25 Interlude
2.30 Biology
' Curious Body Chemistry '
R. C. GARRY , M.B., Ch.B., D.Se.
(From Edinburgh)
All parts of the body are dependent on the other parts of the body. For example, the blood passing through the muscles one minute goes to the brain the next minute, and carries chemical substances from the muscles to the brain. There are also organs in the body of which the special duty is to make chemical substances which the blood then carries to all parts of the body. Today's talk will deal with one or two of the more important of these many substances which have been discovered.

: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Mary Abbott
Bach's Italian Concerto originally written for the harpsichord, dates from 1735, when the composer was fifty years of age. This concerto is an attempt to apply to one instrument the principles of alternation and of contrast that were observed in writing music for an instrument (or group of instruments) used with some form of orchestra. It is a concerto, but a one man concerto, the only piece so named that Bach ever wrote for one performer. Its title refers to the fact that the Italians established the concerto form as a chain of movements (usually three — two quick ones, with a slow one in the middle).

: REGINALD FOORT

at the BBC Theatre Organ
It seems only the other day that Reginald Foort gave his first broadcast on the BBC Theatre Organ, which without a doubt is proving very popular with listeners. They seem to like particularly the personal touch Foort gives in making his own announcements. Countless listeners write in to him with suggestions, and he proposes to adopt many of these as time goes on. The combination of organ, piano, with the addition of a vocalist, scored such a hit when it was first broadcast a few weeks ago that it is hoped to make a weekly feature of similar programmes in the near future.

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.
