: ' THINGS I CANNOT EXPLAIN'

' The Black Hand ' by Jonathan
The speaker who is broadcasting under the name of ' Jonathan ' was formerly a schoolmaster in South Africa. The extraordinary adventure he is going to talk about belongs to a recognised class of psychic experience, as the end of the story (which must be kept a surprise) should prove. In a word, Jonathan encountered a banshee. Though it was many years'ago that it all happened, he recalls every detail with vividness.

Solo .violoncello, Feuermann from the Pavilion, Bournemouth (Soloist, FEUERMANN>)
C. P. E. Bach was the second son of Sebastian Bach. Born at Weimar in 1714, he was educated at the Leipzig Thomasschule and the University of Frankfort-on-Oder. From his early days he displayed extraordinary musical gifts and ultimately became one of the formost players of the organ and clavier. Furthermore, he was a prolific composer and was considered one of the advanced modernists of his day. Actually, he did much to lay the foundations of the new forms of sonata and symphony, which were later perfected by Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven. He died at Hamburg in 1788. Symphony No. 2, in C minor
Scriabin
I Andante. 2 Allegro. 3 Andante. 4 Tempestoso. 5 Finale: Maestoso
Scriabin's Second Symphony was written when the composer had just come under the influence of Wagner's music and ideas, and of Nietzsche's philosophy of the Superman. It is not surprising, therefore, that the texture is distinctly Wagnerian and that the music seems to have an underlying programme. The ' slow introduction' of the classical symphony is here enlarged to a whole, self-contained (though quite short) movement. At a first hearing, the most attractive part is the third movement, with its bird-calls and its echoes of Wagner's 'forest murmurs'.

: TEA-TIME TALKS

Ⓓ 'You and Your Clothes'
' Some Suggestions for the Broader Figure'
Alison Settle
On September 30 that expert on fashion, Alison Settle, gave a broadcast talk on this autumn's fashions, following it up on October 28 with a talk on how to wear them. Today's broadcast is her last in the present series. But many a woman listener will be hoping that this famous fashion-writer and fashion-consultant will be coming to the microphone again in the near future to give more of her very welcome and valuable advice.

: Books I Read Twice

Admiral Sir William Goodenough, G.C.B., M.V.O.
One of the fascinations of this series is that each broadcaster speaks with such enthusiasm of the books that he has liked. And to listen to Admiral Goodenough is almost to be sitting in his library with him and to visualise the very books he is talking about, up there on his shelves. 'Great stuff that! ... But shut the door, light the fire, and take the next shelf—Travel and Exploration.'
As one would expect from a man who was President of the Royal Geographical Society from 1930 to 1933 and who met many an author of books on exploration, this is a favourite shelf of his. One would expect him to have a particular love for tales of the sea, and one would not be disappointed. But there are books that deal with neither the sea nor travel, and books of poetry, too, which have kindled a warmth in his heart, and therefore enter this talk.
Many listeners will remember his broadcast on Lord Fisher in the 'I Knew a Man' series, which he gave in June.

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.
