: MISSIONARY TALK

' Peacemaking in Palestine '
The Rt. Rev. G. F. Graham Brown ,
O.B.E., D.D.
Dr. Graham Brown , who was appointed Bishop in Jerusalem in 1932, was formerly Principal of Wycliffe Hall, Oxford. To commemorate the Jubilee of the Hall in 1927, he conceived the idea of taking the students to spend their summer term in Palestine. The visit was repeated two years later, when the Principal and students gave valuable help during the serious riots which broke out while they were there.

: I KNEW A MAN

' George Meredith '
Lady Milner
Lady Milner is to talk about a great Victorian and a great English novelist whom she knew from her childhood days. He and her father, Admiral Maxse, were intimate friends, and George Meredith would walk the four miles from Box Hill to her father's house at Effingham, and the two men would go for long walks together. Often she accompanied them and when she got tired they would pick her up and take it in turns to carry her while they talked about life, philosophy, and politics.
It is of Meredith the man she will speak-a man who was never embittered by his hard life. His books never began to sell until he was old, but laughter and fun and chaff were sweetness of life to him.

: LESLIE JEFFRIES and the GRAND HOTEL. EASTBOURNE, ORCHESTRA

Vivien Lambelet (mezzo-soprano) from the Grand Hotel, Eastbourne (Soloist, LESLIE JEFFRIES> )
Restaurant and hotel music has a great tradition behind it. Some of the foremost violinists of today have in their earlier days led restaurant and hotel bands. To be really successful a leader must be, first, a fine player of his instrument, and, secondly, a musician with catholic tastes who is able to interpret sympathetically anything from a popular song to the movement of a classical symphony. One of the most popular hotel leaders of today is Leslie Jeffries , who possesses both these qualities to a very high degree. He is also backed with a first-rate group of musicians, all of whom have been carefully chosen for their efficiency and experience.

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.
