' Invaders '
A dramatic interlude written for broadcasting by RHODA POWER
Tacitus tells us that the Britons cheerfully bore the military service and taxation imposed on them by the Romans so long as there was no oppression. In fact, they must have been sorry when the Romans left. They were to endure far more at the hands of more ruthless enemies -to be slaughtered by the Saxons, raided by the Danes, and fear the Norman in their midst. And yet the latter, inured as they were to war, revived in Britons the observance of religion. Churches rose in every village, and monasteries in towns and cities, built in a style unknown before.
In today's broadcast listeners will hear something of what happened after the Romans left Britain, of the different people mentioned above who made this country their home, and of the share that each of them had in the making of the British people.

: 'THINGS I CANNOT EXPLAIN'

' Mystery at Versailles'
J. R. Sturge Whiting
This is the first broadcast in a new series which will give listeners the opportunity of hearing various speakers give first-hand experiences of things they are unable to explain. In today's broadcast, however, it was a matter of somebody else relating one of the strangest experiences of modern times or leaving it out altogether, as the two English ladies who experienced it are dead. Sturge Whiting , therefore, is to narrate how they were walking together thirty-five years ago near Le Petit Trianon in the grounds of the Palace of Versailles and were convinced that they met gardeners in eighteenth-century costume and even saw Marie Antoinette.

In 1923 he joined the BBC as leader of the small studio orchestra and remained in that capacity for six years while .the orchestra grew in strength and became a symphony orchestra, and finally he became leader of the Theatre Orchestra when it was first formed. In 1932 he became repetiteur, sub-conductor, and orchestral manager of the Theatre Orchestra, and two years later he was appointed conductor of the newly-formed Variety Orchestra. Just over a year ago, however, Kneale Kelley resigned his post with the BBC to take over the musical directorship of Eastbourne.

: TEA-TIME TALKS

The Nations Look at the Status of Women
Linda P. Littlejohn
Mrs. Linda Littlejohn is Australia's leading feminist, was on the Board of Health for New South Wales, and a noted broadcaster in the Commonwealth up to the time of her leaving it two years ago to take up her work as Chairman of Equal Rights International, an organisation with branches all over the world which makes it its business to inquire into, and to improve so far as it can, the status of women everywhere. It does a great deal of its work in Geneva, and Mrs. Littlejohn has been out there drawing up a report on this vexed and important question that is to be discussed by the Assembly of Nations. She is coming back to broadcast today and to tell British listeners what she and her organisation are trying to do for women throughout the world.

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.
