' God Save The King '
The Story of our National Anthem by H. E. PiGGOTT
Everyone knows our National Anthem, but few know that It was the first of al) national anthems, and fewer still know the history of it. In this talk Mr. Piggott will speak of its origin three hundred years or more ago. He will tell how it came to be sung on different occasions, and he will play to listeners the various versions that there have been. Not the least interesting information in his talk is the part that a man actually called John Bull took in the making of the best-known anthem in the world, ' God save the King '.

: THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF EMPIRE

The Rt. Hon. Winston Churchill,
C.H..M.P.
Few statesmen can be more conscious of the 'Responsibilities of Empire' than the speaker who tonight is to talk primarily to the Empire and secondly to listeners in Great Britain. The last time he broadcast was in the'India'series two years ago, when he spoke as one of the most persistent and relentless critics of the Government's India policy. From the time he served with the Malakand Field Force in 1897, attached to the 31st Punjab Infantry, Mr. Churchill, though he may have changed his political affiliations, has never changed his Imperialistic views in .a long and brilliant political life.

Epilogue and Funeral March
(Soloist, SOPHIE WYSS)
Benjamin Britten's 'Our Hunting Fathers' was first performed at the Norwich Music Festival last September. Described as a 'Symphonic Cycle' for soprano solo, the words are written or selected by W.H. Auden. It is in five parts, including Prologue and Epilogue, and the music well reflects the satirical character of the words. (Soloist, AUBREY BRAIN> )
Leighton Lucas, who is now conducting the Markova-Dolin Ballet, is the composer of a number of important orchestral and chamber works, including 'Masque of the Sea' (performed at Queen's Hall in 1929), Concertino for violin, 'cello, and wind orchestra (1929), Concerto for string quartet and orchestra (1929), and a Requiem Mass (in memoriam, Elgar, Delius, and Holst). In the 'Sinfonia brevis', the solo horn is accompanied by ten instruments: piccolo, flute, cor anglais, saxophone, piano, harp, xylophone (or drums), viola, 'cello, and bass. The composer has described his Sinfonia as being largely 'an experiment in orchestral textures', and an attempt to convey the characteristic effects of Javanese music by means of modern European instruments.

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.
