Tartar Invaders
IGOR VINOGRADOFF
Commanders, elders, and common people, know that God has given me the empire of the earth from the East to the West. Whoever submits to me shall be spared but those who resist, they shall be destroyed, they and their wives and children and servants.'
That was how Chingis Khan , or Ruler of the Tartars, wrote to his enemies. He meant what he said. He and his fierce people galloped and conquered their way right across Asia from their homes in the Far
East, as their kinsmen the Huns had done more than 800 years before.
Today's broadcast will tell you something about the terrible Ghingis Khan and his Tartar empire.

@ Extermination of Animals by Man
H. MUNRO Fox, F.R.S.
It was necessary to exterminate wolves in Britain because they were dangerous to men and cattle, and it would be a good thing if we could exterminate rats. But it is a thousand pities that birds such as the dodo and the great auk were exterminated. Seals and elephants have been saved by laws, and it is hoped that whales will be saved by a new agreement to protect them. In the past men did not care whether animals were exterminated or not ; nowadays people do not want wild animals to die out. This is the outline of Munro Fox 's talk today.

: THE GRAND CANYON SUITE

by Ferdy Grofe
Gramophone records by Paul Whiteman and his Orchestra
Ferdy Grofe was born in New York and at an early age learned to play the piano and viola. He played the latter instrument in the Los Angeles Symphony Orchestra after leaving school. In 1919 Grofe went to San Francisco and became a pianist in Tail's orchestra. Here he met Paul Whiteman , and in the next year went back to Los Angeles and became the pianist of Paul Whiteman 's original band.
Ferdy Grofe was the first to introduce orchestrations and scores for dance bands and in this he was encouraged by Whiteman. One of his outstanding achievements was the scoring of George Gershwin 's ' Rhapsody in Blue '.
The ' Grand Canyon' Suite is a musical picture of that famous ravine in California. Grofe has also written 'Three Shades of Blue ' Metropolis', ', and ' Rhapsody in Steel '.

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.
