World History
' Constantinc becomes a Christian '
A dramatic interlude written for broadcasting by RHODA POWER
'I ask them whether they are Christians. If they say Yes, then I repeat the question a second and a third time, warning them of the penalties it entails, and if they still persist I order them to be taken away to prison ... '
Last week listeners heard about the eruption of Vesuvius which destroyed Pompeii, and they will remember that Pliny, then a young
Roman, was present at the disaster and wrote a graphic account of it. Pliny in due course became an important Roman official, and one of his duties was to question those who were suspected of being Christians. The above is an extract from a letter he wrote to the Emperor Trajan.
In today's broadcast you will hear something of the sufferings of the early Christians, and how after long years of persecution they were at last given freedom to worship as they pleased. You will hear, too, how a great Roman Emperor, Constantine, became a Christian, and of the strange happenings which led to his conversion.

' The Ewe Flock '
W. S. Mansfield
This evening Mr. Mansfield will discuss the ewe flock. Mr. Mansfield himself keeps a flock of Scotch crossbreds on the University Farm in conjunction with his policy of ' alternate husbandry'. That is to say, they are fed on the grass during the period that the land is down to pasture. It is his intention this evening to have with him at the microphone his own shepherd.

Conducted by ARTURO TOSCANINI
Probably the most notable event on the executive side of British music for a decade or more has been the appearances of Toscanini, first with the New York Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra in 1930, and then during the BBC London Music Festivals of 1935 and 1937. Toscanini's genius for visualising a composer's thought and giving life to it, or rather re-creating it, is a quality for which his conducting has become famed throughout the world. Whereas other great conductors exercise this quality in respect of certain composers' music, Toscanini does it will all music, whether it be classical or modern. On conducting without a score Toscanini has said: 'This makes it possible for me to have the whole orchestra in my hands from the beginning to the end of a performance.'

: POETRY WILL OUT'

Studies in National Inspiration and Characteristic Forms—1
' Persian Poetry'
Sir E. Denison Ross , C.I.E.
The idea of this series is that poetry is to be found in the hearts of all peoples, although among different peoples it takes different forms. Some of these forms-the French sonnet, Scandinavian sagas, Italian epics, and so forth - are traced in this series.
Tonight Sir Denison Ross , the eminent authority on Oriental languages, especially Persian, who has just retired from the Directorship of the School .of Oriental Studies at the London Institution, and from the Professorship of Persian in the University of London (posts which he has held since 1916), will discuss Persian poetry and. will read some examples.

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.
