: OTHER WOMEN'S LIVES

Mrs. Edward Harvey
Listeners are to hear an account of a typical week in the life of a woman who keeps a small general shop in a working-class district of Liverpool. Tess Harvey is the wife of Edward Harvey , who told listeners about his change of jobs in ' Swapping Horses ' on Thursday. It was the result of his losing a good job in one of the dead industries of Merseyside that he and Mrs. Harvey became shop-keepers. She is to talk of life from her side of the counter, and the very human and often very poor people whom she meets on the other side. They come into her shop for the bare essentials of life, and the thriftiness of their orders tells its own story.

The Disc-breaking Competition
A commentary on the final heats of the Team Sharpshooter
Tournament by Captain E. H. Robinson from Alexandra Palace
Listeners are to hear a commentary on the sharp-shooting item at forty yards range for the Patriotic Shield, which is one of the items in the National Small-Bore Rifle Competition, organised by the Society of Miniature Rifle Clubs. Clubs throughout the country may each enter one team of three persons. The target consists of twelve breakable white discs arranged in two sets of six. Teams are drawn in pairs, and the two teams lie down together. The team that first destroys all the discs or has broken the most on the word Cease ' is the winner of that particular heat.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Julian Clifford
Smetana (1824-1884) was the pioneer of Czech national music. His cycle of six symphonic poems collectively entitled ' My Country ' is, as the title suggests, in praise of Bohemia.
' Bohemia's Woods and Fields ' is the fourth symphonic poem of the cycle. The music sets out to describe a traveller's sensations on his arrival in the country. He meets a village maiden. At noon he rests in the woods, and then proceeds onwards until he comes to a village. A hymn reminds him of the piety of the peasants, and a jolly dance suggests their simple sense of fun.

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.
