: A Programme of GRAMOPHONE RECORDS

The London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Sir Hamilton Harty : Introduction, Rigaudon, Polonaise, Passacaglia (Handel, arr. Harty)
The London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Sir Thomas Beecham , Bart.: Symphony No. 41, in C (K.551) (Jupiter) (Mozart)-l
Allegro 2 Andante cantabile. J
Minuetto and Trio. 4 Allegro
One of the most amazing feats of Mozart's wonderful career of less than thirty-six years was the production within six weeks of three great symphonies, each one of them a masterpiece. Symphony No. 41, in C, was the last of the three, and not only the last but by common consent the greatest of all his symphonies. No one knows who gave it the title ' the Jupiter', but the whole world of music has long accepted it as in every way fitting for so great a work.

: SPORTS COMMENTARIES

Oxford v. Cambridge
A running commentary by H. M. Abrahams on some of the events at the Inter-'Varsity Athletic Meeting from White City Stadium
Wales v. Ireland
A running commentary by H. B. T. Wakelam on the International Rugby
Union football match from St. Helen's Ground, Swansea
(By permission of the Welsh Rugby
Football Union)
This mixed broadcast starts off with a ten-minute commentary by H. M. Abrahams , on the 'Varsity sports. If timings at the White City run accurately, listeners should hear the 120-yards hurdle.
Then they will be taken to
Swansea to hear Wakelam's account of the first half of the Rugby match; and during the interval they will be brought back to London to hear, it is hoped, the final of the 3 miles. Back again to Swansea for the second half of the International, and then once again to London to hear the 440 yards and something of the results.
The 'Varsity sports this year have two new features. Field events are included and there is a new system of marking which will mean that placings as well as wins will count. Abrahams, in his three broadcasts, will describe various events going on at the same time as the items named above.

: SATURDAY TALK ON SPORT

Gilbert Hoare is to trace the history of lacrosse from the earliest records of the game being played down to the present day. Nobody knows, he says, when it really began, although it is on record that it was being played by Sioux tribes over nine hundred years ago. He will tell listeners about the dramatic way in which English people first heard of the game's existence ; how and when it came to this country, and how the famous Stockport Club, founded in 1876, has carried on ever since.

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.
