: GAETANO DI VITO AND @ HIS LADIES' ORCHESTRA

Gaetano di Vito, who has played the violin in symphony orchestras under Toscanini, Mengelberg and Weingartner, and who conducted the Italian Opera Company for three seasons in Holland during the war, is o make his debut on the air today with his newly formed Ladies
Orchestra, of sixteen first-class m-strumentalists. Since the war he has achieved great popularity in the West End of London.
Gaetano was born in Caserto,
Italy, and went with his family to
Antwerp when he was two years old —his father being a piano-tuner of such renown that he was sent for when ' musicians of the calibre of Paderewski came to Antwerp. At nine years of age he was playing the fiddle ; he satisfied the examiners at the Conservatoire at Antwerp by his playing of a Beriot concerto when he was fourteen, and so started on his remarkable career.
His orchestra will be one of the few ladies' light orchestras on the air, and as he plans to give listeners good music of a light semi-classical nature, it should be sure of a welcome.

' Godfrey, King of Jerusalem '
HOWARD HAYDEN
The true knight of the Middle Ages was expected to be courteous and brave, loyal to his friends, a helper to all in trouble, and the protector of the Church.
This broadcast tells you how
Godfrey of Bouillon showed himself a true knight. You will hear how-he left his home near the borders of France and Germany and set out upon a Crusade. We shall follow his journey to the Holy Land, and hear about the Saracens he met there, and how at last he captured Jerusalem, the Holy City.

' The Biological Control of Pests'
H. MUNRO Fox , F.R.S.
(From Midland)
Just as cats are used to get rid of mice, toads are used for killing insects, and fishes for killing mosquitos which spread malaria. Insect pests, like the scale insects on orange trees, have been conquered by using their natural enemies, which are ladybirds. The silk industry was nearly ruined by the scale insect on mulberry trees, but this scale insect was conquered by a natural insect parasite. Cactus plants in Australia are a gigantic weed which is now being destroyed by insects brought from America. These, among other things, form the subject of Munro Fox 's talk today.

: THE BBC MILITARY BAND

Conductor, P. S. G. O'Donnell
Mendelssohn's Overture, ' The Hebrides', otherwise known as 'Fingal's Cave', was inspired by a visit paid by the composer to Scotland in 1829. This very beautiful work has well been described as a seascape and it certainly suggests the surge of the sea in all its power and ruggedness. As a piece of musical construction it is perfect in form and the orchestration shows the hand of a delicate and masterly colourist.

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.
