2.5 Our Village ' Christmas '
Written for broadcasting by EDITH E. MACQUEEN , Ph.D.
2.25 Interval Music
2.30 British History Looking Outwards
A dramatic interlude written for broadcasting by RHODA POWER
In today's broadcast you will hear about the new ideas that were spreading in Europe in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries ; how English-men like Sir John Tiptoft travelled to Italy and shared in the great revival of learning ; how scholars like Sir Thomas More became the friends of the most learned men of the time ; how the merchants began to look abroad for new markets and new ways of trading, and how King Henry VII himself sent Cabot outwards across the Atlantic to search for new lands.

: THINGS I CANNOT EXPLAIN

' A Dream that was not a Dream'
The Rev. L. Berian James
The Reverend Berian James 's ghostly experience was far from being an alarming one. Nothing more benevolent could be imagined than the spirit that moved him to dream the dream of which he is going to speak. Ever since the days of Joseph and his brethren, some dreams have come true. The fact that Mr. James's dream came true, materially and happily affected his life. To say more would be to spoil the story.

Solo violin, Szigeti from the Pavilion, Bournemouth (Soloist, SZIGETI)
Bizet's Symphony No. 1, in C, appears to have been entirely forgotten until February, 1935, when its first performance was given at Basle by Felix Weingartner. It was probably composed during the time that Bizet was studying under Halevy. Bizet was then about fifteen years of age. The manuscript is preserved in the library of the Paris Conservatoire. Its four movements are designed on the lines of a classical symphony, and although the composer uses the idiom of his period, there is a striking individuality about the treatment, particularly as regards the orchestration, which is highly original and piquant in the French style.

: LIFE IN LAPLAND

An impression in sound and music
The nomad Laplander depends on the reindeer for his clothing and food, even for milk. It is virtually life to him ; he must defend it and himself against their common enemy the wolf, and he drives with dogs enormous herds about the snow-decked highlands in the summer and the sheltered valleys in the winter in search of the moss that is essential to the well-being of the animal he cannot do without.
In this programme, which comes from a studio in Stockholm, an attempt will be made to describe the life of the Lapps-often dangerous, often dramatically exciting. Listeners will hear records of sound and music which were made when the Swedish broadcasters recently visited the Laplanders to get material for this broadcast.

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.
