: 'AT THE COURT OF KING PREMPEH'

H. Norton Matthews
Just a year ago Norton Matthews was crossing Africa from West to
East at its widest point from Dakar to Mombasa-nearly 9,000 miles-by lorry, when he was taken ill on the Gold Coast. But it was a fortunate illness, for convalescence brought him to Kumasi, and there he had an opportunity of seeing all that can be seen by an Englishman of the Court of King Prempeh II. Today Norton Matthews is to say- something about the siege of Kumasi, which was contemporary with the siege of Mafeking. He will speak of the great changes that have taken place in Ashanti during the last twenty years.

Led by Laurance Turner

Muriel Sotham (contralto)
Maurice Johnstone , who comes from
Manchester, studied at the Royal Manchester College of Music and later at the Royal College of Music, under Sir Charles Stanford and Sir Adrian Boult. On his return to Manchester he managed his own music business, wrote music criticisms for the Manchester Guardian, and conducted the Oldham Orchestra. He then became secretary to Sir Thomas Beecham , and three years later, in 1935, joined the programme staff of the BBC Music Department in London. He has now been appointed North Regional Music Director, a post which will take him back to his native city.
Among his compositions are ' A
Welsh Rhapsody', which was first performed at a concert in .Lancashire in 1932, and repeated at the Proms last season; the concert march ' Watling Street and several works for brass band, in which form of composition he is particularly interested. ' Watling Street' is a quick-step march with a title that has nothing to do with the music. It was thought of after the music was written, and the composer says that he chose it simply because he considered that it sounded better than Opus 52a, or some such prosaic number!

‘ Running a Cinema '
Kenneth A Nyman
The thing that matters most to the ordinary cinema-goer is what films come to the cinema round the corner, or one within easy reach, and what sort of a programme he will get when he goes there. Today, in a discussion with that popular broadcaster, Herbert Hodge , Kenneth Nyman , the Chairman of the London and Home Counties branch of the Cinematograph Exhibitors' Association, will describe the job of finding out what the public likes, and choosing films that will draw the best audiences.

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.
