: Backstage at Bellahouston

The Amusement Park
Alastair Borthwick reviews progress at the Empire Exhibition.
(Scottish Programme)
Listeners will remember that during the Royal Visit to Scotland last July the King and Queen visited Bellahouston Park, the site of the Glasgow Exhibition to be opened in May. His Majesty stood on the brow of the hill overlooking the mass of girders and excavations, and unveiled a rough-hewn block of Aberdeen granite.
Six months have passed, and Glasgow's skyline has a new landmark. It is the Empire Exhibition Tower, rising in spans of 24 feet on the summit of Bellahouston Hill. Already the structure soars 248 feet above the tree-tops, and is visible for several miles around the city. Of this and other changes in the landscape Alastair Borthwick is to talk today.

The Northmen were not only warriors and sea-rovers, but also traders. They sailed from their own homes to other lands, raiding, trading, and settling, and their ships, which looked like great dragons, were the terror of all who saw them. Today you will hear about some of their voyages, especially that of Leif the Lucky, who found an unknown land which he called Vineland the Good and which we call America.

Anthem, Glorious and powerful God
(Stanford)
Glorious and powerful God, we understand Thy dwelling is on high Above the starry sky.
Thou dwellest not in stone temples made with hand;
But in the flesh hearts of the sons of men To dwell is Thy delight,
Near hand, though out of sight.
We give of Thine own hand. Thy acceptation
Is very life and blood To all actions good.
Whenever here or hence our supplication, From pure and with unfeigned hearts, to
Thee ascends,
Be present with Thy grace Shew us Thy loving face.
Oh, down on us full showers of mercy send,
Let Thy love's burning beams Dry up all our sin's streams.
Arise, 0 Lord, and come into Thy rest. Both now and evermore Thy name be blest.
Founder and Foundation
Of endless habitation. Amen.
Hymn, The spacious firmament on high (A. and M. 662)

: THE BBC MILITARY BAND

Conductor, P. S. G. O'Donnell
Elgar's Op. 27 is a suite for choir and orchestra called ' From the Bavarian Highlands ', an echo of the composer's travels in that part of the world. Three of the numbers are dances scored for orchestra alone, and these are often played separately in the form of an orchestral suite. Perhaps the most charming of the three dances is the lullaby In Hammersbach'.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
