: ' SWORD IN HAND '

Ⓓ 'Fencing and Duelling through the Centuries' by C. D. Dimsdale
'The sword
Clanging imperious
Forth from Time's battlements
His ancient and triumphing song
Production by John Richmond
(Empire Programme)
Briefly in this dramatic feature will be described the different types of swords used through the centuries up to the modern fencing foil, now of world-wide popularity with both sexes. The interludes will present the medieval ' battel ' or judicial duel, as described by Shakespeare in Richard II. and the skilled fencing with foils which he represented inHamlet.
Belonging to the age of duelling is D'Artagnan's maiden fight in 'The
Three Musketeers', which will be dramatised ; and further dramatic interludes reproduce the ferocious combat in 1712 between James Miller and Timothy Buck ; and one of the last duels with side-arms in this country, that in which one of the protagonists was Lord Byron, grand-uncle of the poet.

@ ' Round the Countryside '
' The Nature Detective '
' More Convicting Evidence from the Snow'
WATKIN W. WILLIAMS
A fall of snow provides a fresh and exceptionally good field of activity for the ' Nature Detective '. Cats and dogs prowling round the garden, different kinds of birds coming in search of food, and wild animals such as rabbits, hares, and foxes in the farmyards and fields, all leave clear evidence in the snow of their presence and of what they have been about. A year ago Watkin Williams introduced the subject of snow-tracking in one of his talks on ' Nature's Story-book ', and today he will have more to tell listeners about this fascinating subject.

: The Television Service: Its achievement and position today

Gerald Cock, Director of Television
Fifteen months ago, on November 2, 1936, the BBC Television Service at Alexandra Palace was officially opened by the Postmaster-General, Major Tryon. Except for a three weeks' break last year for an overhaul and structural alterations, programmes have been televised regularly six days in the week. Very soon the service will be further extended when Sunday transmissions begin in April.
Working under extremely difficult conditions, those responsible for programmes at Alexandra Palace have convinced thousands of the excellence and permanence of television entertainment. Every kind of broadcast has been successfully undertaken-Variety, opera, orchestral programmes, plays, talks features, ballets, and outside broadcasts. Some of the outstanding programmes will probably be discussed this evening by Gerald Cock, who has been in charge from the start.

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.
