: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by John Davies Beethoven's Sonata in D, Op. 28, was written in 1801. 'It has been called the " Pastoral sonata', says Paul Bekker, ' a name which neither belies, nor yet fully expresses, its content. It would be hard to find any short title to fit this dreamy, reflective, meditative work. In the first movement the thoughts flow almost imperceptibly into one another ; even the working-out section shows but a slight increase in vividness and definition. A mood of restful content pervades the movement. It appears to be based on a single broad theme which proceeds in circular motion and ends at the point where it began.'

Planning your Spring Outfit
Gladys Burlton
For twelve years it 'has been the life-work of Gladys Burlton , who is well known as an exponent of the best methods of selling, to show that selling is a profession with a technique to be mastered. She visits shops and stores and showrooms all round the country, and gives lectures to the assistants on selling as an art.
Now for a change, she is to tell the public how to buy. All who listen to her talk will see that shopping is an art just as much as selling; and they will listen with advantage to the many wrinkles this expert has to give, not the least of which is to pick a shop assistant who is likely to be the customer's guide, philosopher, and friend.

Presented by Max Kester with The BBC Variety Orchestra

Charles Shadwell originally intended to follow in his father's footsteps in the medical profession, but finally decided to become a professional musician. Mr. Shadwell learned to play the piano, organ, and violin and he became a member of the York Symphony Orchestra. The organ he studied first under Tertius Noble, and afterwards under Sir Edward Bairstow , who succeeded Noble as organist of York Minster. During the War Mr. Shadwell served as an officer in the West Yorkshire Regiment, and afterwards came to London to resume his musical studies at the Trinity College of Music and also studying privately under Sir Frederick Bridge.
For five years Mr. Shadwell worked for Harry Day , conducting musical comedies, revues, and pantomimes.
He then went as resident Musical Director to the Portsmouth Hippodrome, and a year later to Brighton Hippodrome. After eighteen months he was appointed Musical Director at Coventry Hippodrome, where during his five years he broadcast over 250 times. He finally joined the BBC staff as conductor of the Variety Orchestra in 1936.

Howard Marshall and Others
In this the last talk of the series Howard Marshall will discuss with Alexander Farquharson the tendencies in social life that have been revealed in the earlier talks and in listeners' letters. Are these tendencies permanent or passing phases? Are they peculiarly British, or can they be discerned in all countries ? These are some of the points that will be put to Mr. Farquharson, who is Secretary of the Institute of Sociology.

: 'BEAUTY QUEEN'

The North of England is the home of beauty queens. They are chosen from the ranks of this industry and the other, are queens for a year, lauded, feted, given lessons in elocution and deportment and a life as public and publicised as a film star -and then, alas, the poor beauty queen is completely forgotten.
This radio play, originally broadcast from the North last April, deals with the experiences and adventures of Bessie Butterworth-for one year Queen of Hats. Her rise to fame and jolt-back to normality are vividly told in a succession of sharp, short, clear-cut scenes that give the play extraordinary speed and liveliness. She is a fictional character, of course, but a composite study of all the beauty queens the author knew when he was doing publicity work in the North.

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.
