: A Robert Mayer CONCERT FOR CHILDREN

The London Symphony Orchestra
Leader, W. H. Reed
Conductor, Malcolm Sargent from the Central Hall, Westminster
It is now fourteen years since Robert Mayer conceived the idea of concerts for children, which have proved to be one of the most flourishing educational undertakings in music. This morning's concert to celebrate the Coronation of Their Majesties King George VI and Queen Elizabeth is the first that has ever been broadcast.
The well-contrasted programme of British music to be heard includes the first performance of an interesting work by Sir Walford Davies , Fantasy in F, ' Big Ben Looks On '. Commissioned by Robert Mayer , it is dedicated by gracious permission to Their Royal Highnesses the Princess Elizabeth and the Princess Margaret Rose. Two small dedicatory tunes, one for each Princess, are heard before the Fantasy begins and again before the end. The idea behind the music is that whose voice owing to broadcasting can now be heard throughout the Empire, first looks on London, then on a remote English village, and finally to the far-away Dominions.

: APRIL TO JUNE

A series of talks about the countryside
Summer Birds
Eric Parker
The migrants begin to reach us from mid-March onwards, but most of our summer birds return in April. The order of arrival is nearly the same every year. It is remarkable how birds will return each year to the same haunt, even to the same bough. Why should late arrivals like the swifts leave early, in August, when there is still food for them in England ?
These are some of the things to be discussed in this new series (one of the three primarily for Discussion Groups). All the talks will be given by Eric Parker , Editor of the Field, and of the Lonsdale Library of Sports, Games, and Pastimes. He first broadcast in 1928, and gave continuous talks in ' Round the Countryside' to Schools from 1931 to 1935 -talks as delightful as any ever given on the air.

: ONE GENERATION TO ANOTHER

Taking Stock
A Review of the situation by A. M. Carr-Saunders ,
H. D. Henderson , and T. H. Marshall
Tonight's broadcast concludes this series of six weekly talks. Listeners may remember that they were preceded by a debate in which various people who were unwilling to become parents took part as well as an expert on the trend of population. T. H. Marshall (who has been interlocutor throughout), and Professor A. M. Carr-Saunders and H. D. Henderson , who have both broadcast in the series, are to sum up the evidence as to possible causes and effects.

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.
