: THINGS I CANNOT Ⓓ EXPLAIN

The Dew Men of Crete
Sir Ernest Bennett
In the course of an active life and much travel, Sir Ernest Bennett has had some strange experiences. The episode of the Dew Men of Crete must have been one of the most inexplicable. Sir Ernest tries his best to account for the appearance at dawn of this ghostly army marching down to the shore in Crete. But no theories based on what is known of natural laws are satisfactory. The Dew Men remain inexplicable.

: TEA-TIME TALK

Ⓓ The English Resistance to Comfort'
Florence Dean
Here is a talk by an American woman who married an Englishman and has survived fourteen winters in England. She will discuss what appears to her our national acceptance of discomfort ; and who that leaves his warm sitting-room at bedtime and goes up to a freezing bedroom will fail to see her point ? She has many comparisons to make between the customs of the land she has left and the one she has adopted, and certainly it would seem, on listening to her talk, that Americans and those living in cosmopolitan cities on the Continent have much ' over us ' in the art of securing the amenities of life.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section D)
Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Joseph Lewis
Frank Laffitte (pianoforte)
Frank Laffitte was bom at Bromley in 1901. He studied at the Guildhall School of Music, where he won a scholarship and the Gold Medal. In 1920 Laffitte won great success with the playing of two concertos under Sir Landon Ronald at a Queen's Hall symphony concert. During the next few years he appeared as soloist on several occasions at the Royal Albert Hall Sunday Orchestral Concerts, and since that time he has appeared in most of the leading European 'musical centres.
MacDotvell's Second Concerto
MacDowell's Second Concerto was played in public for the first time by the composer himself at Chickering Hall, New York, on March 5, 1889. It is a comparatively early work and one of the few compositions in which the American master is not concerned with any poetic idea, though the scherzo is based on material originally intended for a symphonic poem on the subject of Beatrice and Benedick'.
' Not elsewhere in his earlier work ', says Lawrence Gilman , has MacDowell marshalled the materials of his art with so confident an artistry as he exhibits in this concerto ... in fundamental logic, in cohesion, flexibility, and symmetry of organism, it is a brilliantly successful accomplishment.'

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
