The time I've lost in wooing 'Tis the last rose of summer

Big Towns
A dramatic interlude written for broadcasting by WRAY HUNT
' Berry Street , it was unpaved ; and down the middle a gutter forced its way, every now and then forming pools in the holes with which the street abounded.... Women from their doors tossed household slops of every description into the gutter. ... Heaps of ashes were the stepping stones, on which the passerby, who cared in the least for cleanliness, took care not to put his foot.' ('Mary Barton ', Mrs. Gaskell. 1839-41). This is a description of Manchester about 1840. How was it the town had been allowed to remain so dirty? Most of the large towns in England at this time were like this. Wasn't anyone responsible for keeping them clean ? In less than one hundred years we have managed to clean up our towns.

The artists taking part are all concert artists and play regularly together. They broadcast frequently from Radio Hilversum, and have done several recordings, but this is their first broadcast in England.

: AN ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

Part 1
The BBC Scottish Orchestra
(Augmented)
Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conducted by Sir Adrian Boult
Despite the fact that Brahms's four symphonies differ from each other both in emotional impulse and in various details of design, they are aesthetically of equal importance and belong to a symphonic style that may be described as romantic thought cast in a classical mould. The D major Symphony, for instance, is as lyrical and romantic in expression as any contemporary German music of the time.
If the tragic Symphony No. 1 in C minor was a great success on its fjrst appearance, Symphony No. 2 in D, with its happier and more idyllic feelings, was an even greater one. Although conceived on just as big a scale as the C minor Symphony, the texture of the music is actually very much clearer, the melodies more cantabile in character, and the whole spirit of the music brighter-it has been called Brahms's ' Pastoral' Symphony.

: WORDS FAIL ME

' The Psychology of Words '
Cyril Burt
Man is the only animal that uses words. But most of the animals that have ears as well as mouths express their feelings by noises as well as by movements. Language is simply a refined development of these emotional cries. We ourselves use words far more frequently to express our emotions, or to excite emotion in others, than to state facts or formulate a theory. Words, therefore, are emotional noises which have become conventionalised into signs or symbols. Used as names, they can stand for things or thoughts as well as for wishes and feelings. Hence in civilised man language is not merely a mode of communicating with others, but a means of thinking out things for oneself. This is the gist of the talk to be given by that popular broadcaster and well-known psychologist, Professor Cyril Burt , of University College, London.

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.
