Interlude
2.5 Stories from World History
' The New World to the West '—1
' White Men and Indians '
A Dramatic Interlude written by Hugh Ross Williamson
The stories from world history to be heard this term belong to the last five hundred years, and will show listeners how the old ways of the Middle Ages have been changed, sometimes very gradually, sometimes very quickly, into the new ways of our modern world. Today listeners will hear how the great continent of America was discovered by white men, and about the red-skinned people who were found living there.
Then they will hear about the Aztecs and their great king Montezuma, and what happened when the Spaniards visited them in 1519. 2.25 Interlude
2.30 Biology
Living Things
Continuance and Adaptation*
' Pollination'
A. D. PEACOCK , D.Sc., F.R.S.E.,
Professor of Natural History,
University College, Dundee, in the University of St. Andrews
(From Edinburgh)
This time of the year is very suitable for considering the subjects of the first thre lessons in this the last term of the present course in biology, for listeners are to hear how each generation of living things begins and becomes adult. Today Dr. Peacock will discuss the pollination of flowers. Without pollination seed cannot set and give rise to the next generation. The ' how ' and 'why ' of this process is the subject of this lesson.

: A SERIES OF FIRST BROADCASTS

No. 1
Harold Smart and Douglas Reeves at the BBC Theatre Organ
Harold Smart is fifteen years old. He started playing the piano at the age of five, and has been studying the organ for just over a year under his father, Charles Smart, well-known cinema organist.' Both father and son are broadcasting on the BBC Theatre Organ in the same week; listeners will hear the father playing with Jay Wilbur and his Band on Friday.
Douglas Reeves is nineteen years old, and well known to North London audiences as solo organist at the Regal and Orpheum, Golders Green, and the Capitol, Wembley. At the age of eleven he was assistant deputy-organist at St. George's Church, Brighton, and his first professional engagement was at the Savoy, Brighton, and the Lido, Hove, when he was fourteen.
Reginald Foort heard him and introduced him into the cinema world, where he quickly won fame as ' The Wonder Boy Organist'.
Foort hopes to continue this series of first broadcasts on the BBC Theatre Organ about once a month.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
