: 'WHAT IS THE CHURCH DOING ?'

Howard Marshall
If the people seem reluctant to follow the Church, the Church's counter-move must be to follow the people ; and this is a greater task today than ever, with new housing estates springing up on the outskirts of every town. Are the Churches grasping the opportunity offered, to lay a spiritual foundation for this new communal life, and to make the Church the centre of religious, social, and recreative effort ? The Rev. Ashley Turner is striving to answer this question successfully in one of the most important new housing areas near London, and Howard Marshall will report what he saw and heard on a visit to Dagenham.

: 'I KNEW A MAN'

' Lord Northcliffe'
Tom Clarke
Here is an intimate talk by the author of ' My Northcliffe Diary', about the creator of the popular Press as we know it today. Tom Clarke will speak of the many-sided character of ' the Chief '-his passion for the telephone as well as his interest in the different birds frequenting the gardens of his country house ; the pleasure that was his when he tried on Napoleon's hat at Fontainebleau and found that it fitted him, as well as his interest in children ; his domination and dynamic energy as well as his ' peculiar facility for making you feel, when he was talking to you, that you were the most important person in the world to him '.

: THE BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Leader, Alfred Barker
Conductor, T. H. Morrison
During his youth and early manhood
Beethoven devoted considerable attention to wind music, some of the best examples of which were broadcast in a series of special recitals a fortnight ago. Among these was the Rondino in E flat, which listeners will again have an opportunity of hearing this evening. As its title would suggest, it is not intended to be a profound piece of music, but just a gay and swift-moving little work to amu'se rather than to stimulate the mind and the deeper emotions.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE BRITISH SOCIAL HYGIENE
COUNCIL by JOHN HILTON
This Council promotes the application of modern knowledge to social problems. It co-operates with the Health Authorities in fighting social disease. Trained lecturers, special films, and literature, are used. The work extends throughout the Empire.
A sum of £10,000 is required every year in voluntary funds to meet demands for help from parents, young people, youth leaders, and social workers. The special needs of seafarers, migrants, and transport workers have also to be met. It is the officially recognised social-hygiene organisation for giving instruction and for promoting this essential work, which is commended by every religious organisation.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

: CHAMBER MUSIC

The Berlin Philharmonic
Chamber Music Ensemble:
Hugo Kolberg (violin) ; Carl Hoefer (violin); Willi Hoeber (viola) ;
Arthur Troester (violoncello) ; Linus Wilhelm (double bass) ; Ernst Fischer (clarinet) ; Karl Leuschner
(bassoon); Gustav Otto (horn)
Not until Schubert was twenty-five years of age did he turn seriously to chamber and orchestral music as a medium for expressing deep emotions in the way that he had always done in his songs, and imbuing such music - with what one might term dramatic values. The ' Unfinished ' Symphony was the beginning, and the great posthumous String Quartet in G major the end. The Octet in F major (written during February-March, 1824) is in spirit a peculiar mixture of the composer's earlier lightheartedness and later seriousness of outlook, which at times verged on the tragic.
Schubert was in a very low state of health when he composed the Octet: he was suffering from anaemia, giddiness, and nervous weakness, which were aggravated, by poverty and worry. The Octet was commissioned by an amateur clarinettist, Count Ferdinand von Troyer, chief officer of the household to the Archduke Rudolph , who was Beethoven's patron.

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.
