The National Covered Courts
Championships of Great Britain
A commentary on the final of the Men's Singles by F. H. Grisewood from Queen's Club, West Kensington
By mid-October, the days of outdoor tennis are more or less over for another year, and tennis under cover becomes the thing. The championship to be commented on today by that tennis enthusiast and popular broadcaster, F. H. Grisewood (who, by the way, held a radio discussion on Thursday with Peggy Scriven-he the 'rabbit' and she the ' star') ') marks the opening of the covered-court season and is one of the outstanding autumn events in the tennis world. It is an annual affair played on a wooden surface. Most of our big players will be competing and also some foreign players of repute.

: THE BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conductor, Guy Warrack
' Le Rouet d'Omphale ', by Saint-Saens is a beautiful piece of tone painting based on the legend of Hercules enslaved by the Lydian queen. But the composer warns us not to take its programme too literally, since the subject is meant primarily to illustrate the seductiveness of woman and the struggle between weakness and strength.
A French critic has described the music and detail as follows: An arpeggio figure, alternating between the flute and the violins, soon leads to an orchestral illustration of the whirr of the wheel. A broad melody in the basses, repeated in the different melodic progressions, the instrumentation becoming each time more powerful and highly coloured, expresses the anguish of the hero, who cannot free himself from the wiles of Omphale, and the same phrase in another rhythm becomes the lively derision which the coquettish queen expends upon her lover's fruitless efforts to get free.'

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
