Interlude
2.5 Stories from World History
' Africa and the Black Peoples '
A dramatic interlude written for broadcasting by HUGH Ross WILLIAMSON
Listeners are to hear about the people who live on the great continent of Africa. Most of them are dark-skinned people who we call Negroes, but there are many different tribes among them. In the seventeenth century white people came to settle in the southern part of Africa, and as time went on they gradually spread northwards. Listeners will hear, first, what some of the black people thought about the newcomers, then about the terrible wrong done by white traders when they shipped many of the Negroes across the sea as slaves.

: Biology

' Life conquers the Land '
A. D. PEACOCK , D.Sc., F.R.S.E.
(From Edinburgh)
Contrast living conditions in water with those on land and you will note wetness,denseness, and dissolved air as against dryness and free air. Land plants and animals must depend upon their own structure to support their weight in such a light medium as air ; and must be able to breathe the dry oxygen of the air. All the evidence goes to prove that living things originated in water, and that in course of time some were able to forsake the water and gain a foot-hold on land. How this came to pass is Professor Peacock's subject today.

A Wagner Concert
Undoubtedly, Wagner was one of the greatest and possibly the most extraordinary figures in the history of music. By grim and ruthless determination and the power of an almost hypnotic personality he imposed the fruits of his genius upon an antagonistic and unwilling world. The opposition he fought against was partly of his own making and partly due to the revolutionary characteristics of his art, which had something new and vital to say. But today Wagner's music is accepted by everybody and he has become one of the most popular composers of the nineteenth century, and, possibly, of all times.
This evening Toscanini, who is one of the greatest of all Wagner conductors, is presenting a programme of some of the high lights of Wagner's orchestral music : starting with the youthful ' Faust' Overture, which clearly shows what a mighty composer of symphonic poems Wagner could have been, and ending with the great Funeral March in Götterdämmerung, which displays the master's genius at his most incandescent.

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.
