' Stories that are History'
' Roderick and the Moors '
RHODA POWER
The Mahommedans were great conquerors. In the eighth century they crossed over the sea from Africa into Spain, where their leader Tarik won many victories. We call the Mahommedan conquerors of Spain the Moors. Today's story is about Roderick, the Visigoth, King of Spain, and how he lost his life at the hands of the Moors. It is an old legend of an enchanted tower and a locked door.
' Nor shall it ever ope, old records say,
Save to a king the last of all his line.'

' Plagues of Animals '
H. MUNRO Fox , F.R.S.
If all the young of any kind of animal were to live, that kind would soon become so numerous that it would be a plague. But rabbits are killed by stoats, field-mice by owls, antelopes by lions, and so on ; therefore their numbers do not increase. Sometimes, however, the flesh-eating animals cannot kill enough of their prey to keep the number down, and plagues of rabbits, mice, antelopes, and other animals result. The overcrowded animals then catch diseases and die off. So enemies are necessary to keep plant-eating animals healthy. Plagues of some animals come at regular intervals every few years. This is an outline of the talk that Dr. Munro Fox is to give today.

For two years he was assistant conductor under Richard Strauss at the Berlin Royal Opera, and on Strauss's recommendation he succeeded Klemperer at the Strasbourg Municipal Theatre, when scarcely twenty years of age. From 1924-29 Szell was principal conductor at the Berlin State Opera and taught at the State Academy of Music.

Anthem, When to the Temple Mary went (Eccard)
When to the Temple Mary went, and brought the Holy Child,
Him did the aged Simeon see, as it had been revealed
He took up Jesus in his arms, and blessing God he said :
In peace I now depart, my Saviour having seen,
The Hope of Israel, the Light of men. Help now Thy servants, gracious Lord, that we may ever be
As once the faithful Simeon was, rejoicing but in Thee ;
And when we must from earth departure take,
May gently fall asleep, and with Thee wake.

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.
