World History
' Stories that are History'
' Emperor and Sultan'
A dramatic interlude by RHODA POWER
On the eve of Constantinople being taken by the Turks in 1453, it was said by Constantine. the last Emperor of the Eastern Empire : ‘ God forbid that I should live an Emperor without an Empire. As my city falls, I will fall with it.'
Today's broadcast tells you how
Constantinople, which had been the capital of a great Christian empire, fell at last into the hands of invaders from the East-the Mahommedan Turks. You will hear how the Turkish Sultan, Mahommed the Conqueror, captured the city, and what happened to Constantine, the last Emperor.

‘Nature Sanctuaries'
H. MUNRO Fox , F.R.S.
The bison in America was nearly exterminated, but it has been saved, and bison now live in a nature sanctuary in Canada. There are other such sanctuaries for large animals in different parts of the world. In Britain we have many bird sanctuaries. There is a new spirit in the world which seeks to keep wild animals from being exterminated. Some birds are protected by law partly because they help the farmer, partly because they sing and are beautiful. Fishes are protected for food and for sport. Birds, too-for instance, pheasants and partridges. This is an outline of the talk that Munro Fox is to give today.

: THE BBC SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA visits NOTTINGHAM

A concert in the Albert Hall ,
Nottingham
The BBC Symphony Orchestra
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, .
SIR ADRIAN BOULT
God Save the King (orchestration by Gerrard Williams)
If the tragic Symphony No. 1, in. C minor, was a great success on its first appearance, Symphony No. 2, in D, with its happier and more idyllic feelings, was an even greater one. Although conceived on just as big a scale as the C minor Symphony, the texture of the music is actually very much clearer, the melodies more cantabile in character, and the whole spirit of the music brighter-it has been called Brahms's ' Pastoral ' Symphony.

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.
