: ' FARMING TODAY

Land Drainage
W. S. Mansfield and H. Nicholson
W. S. Mansfield is bringing to the microphone H. Nicholson , of the Cambridge School of Agriculture, to discuss land drainage. Mr. Nicholson is a specialist in soil science. Apart from this, he has devoted much study to the practical aspect of drainage in agriculture. His views and advice should therefore be of great interest to all farmers, and especially to those who farm heavy land.

: REGINALD FOORT

at the BBC Theatre Organ
' Music from the Films '
Several years ago when Reginald Foort was at the Regent, Bournemouth, he thought of playing a programme of ' hits of yesterday'. It proved so successful that he repeated it, developing it later into a programme of hits from the films. As he says, a film tune is a thing of the moment, it is heard while the picture is shown, played a month or two by the bands, and then forgotten. So from time to time he devotes a broadcast to film tunes old and new. He gives a selection or two from a few of the films that are being talked about, and then a medley of some of the tunes from the past. This feature is among the many popular innovations made by Reginald Foort since he joined the BBC.

: THE BBC MILITARY BAND

Conductor, P. S. G. O'Donnell
The first of Smetana's cycle of six symphonic poems, collectively known as 'My Country', ', is ' Vysehrad ', which represents the rocky fortress at Prague above the bank of the river Moldau that flows through Bohemia. The solemn chords on the brass which open the work represent the castle of Vysehrad, and this motive is made use of in the other symphonic poems. The poetic idea behind this symphonic poem is that of the composer contemplating the vivid scenes and events associated with the historical old fortress, the passing of its glory, and its final decay.

: ' CINDERELLA

A new setting of an old story
Words and music by Spike Hughes
Prologue sung by Appleton Moore
Characters
Epilogue sung by Appleton Moore
The BBC Theatre Orchestra and BBC Revue Chorus conducted by the Composer
Production by Douglas Moodie
Three Sisters (or Brothers), of whom the two elder are ugly or malicious or unpleasant in some other way (and failures into the bargain), while the youngest is charming and everything a heroine (or hero) ought to be and succeeds brilliantly with or without magical assistance: that is one of the oldest folk-tale formulas in the world. It figures more or less prominently in the folklore of practically every nation.
On what original, if any, that industrious seventeenth - century Frenchman, Charles Perrault , based his charming version of the formula that we know as ' Cinderella ', it is difficult to say. But it is Perrault's version that now holds the field and it is Perrault's version, unspoiled by the pantomime-mongers, but filtered through the minds (a) of Spike Hughes 's six-year-old daughter, (b) of Spike Hughes himself, that provides the inspiration for this evening's entertainment.
' Cinderella' will be repealed tomon-ow at 9.15 in the Regional programme

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.
