' Speed'
A dramatic interlude written by WILSON MIDGLEY
' Five men, two bullock-drays, five hundred cattle, a thousand sheep-day after day, week after week, they pushed out..... The cartwheels furrowed the earth, winding here and there to avoid a fallen tree, a patch of impenetrable scrub. It was the first road.' That is an account of the difficulties of transport in Australia in the nineteenth century.
' At first, dear Mama, it was terrifying. One seemed to burst through the air. My heart beat..... Our carriage lashed upon a truck, swayed from side to side, making me so sick and faint that I felt near to death.' That is an account of a girl's first experience of a railway journey at about the same time in England (1840). The train was travelling at thirty miles an hour-a speed that motorists in a controlled area find irksome today.
In this broadcast you are to hear of some of the inventions that have helped to make the world grow smaller, more comfortable to live in, but in so many ways much more dangerous.

: GRANVILLE BANTOCK

Prelude, The Song of Songs and First Performance of KING SOLOMON
Bantock's King Solomon was written this year to commemorate the Coronation of Their Majesties King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. The words, chosen from the Old Testament and Psalms, are particularly appropriate for the occasion. Thus, the first section ' Processional' is a setting of Psalm xxi, and contains the following lines : — ' The King shall rejoice in Thy strength, 0 Lord ...'
The second section, ' Monologue ', is drawn from the Second Book of Chronicles, chapter I, verses 1-13, and in it occur the words : — ' For Thou hast made me King over a people like the dust of the earth in multitude '. And the ' Choral
Hymn ', with which the work concludes, is a setting of Psalm cxlviii: — ' Praise ye the Lord '.
The music is remarkable for its breadth and tunefulness : the choral writing is impressive and dramatic, and the Monologue, which is declaimed by the Narrator, to the accompaniment of occasional fanfares, is effective both on account of its inherent qualities as well as for the contrast it forms with the two Psalms between which it is placed.

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.
