Stories that are History ' Christopher Columbus'
H. BELLIS
Christopher Columbus was born in either 1446 or 1451 and died in 1506. He persuaded Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain to finance an expedition of discovery, and set out on his first voyage in 1492. He discovered the Bahamas, Cuba, and other islands in the West Indies, and on his third voyage he landed on the lowlands of South America.
The first episode in this dramatic interlude will show Columbus raising money at the court of Isabella ; the second episode will show his arrival in the West Indies ; and the third episode, his return and triumph. The part of Christopher Columbus will be broadcast by John Abbott.

@ What Animals can hear
H. MUNRO FOX , F.R.S.
Fishes can hear. This has been found out by training Dshes to swim forward when musical notes are p)ayed. A note is played each time that food is given, and after a time the fish comes to the note alone. Dogs can distinguish more notes than humans can, and they can hear higher notes than we are able to hear. Grasshoppers make their noises by rubbing their wings. These are some of the things that Munro Fox will discuss in this first broadcastoftheterm.

Instruments of the Orchestra
Orchestral Concert
THE BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA
Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Arranged and presented by HERBERT WiSEMAN
Overture, Russian and Ludmilla Glinka
Symphony No. 8.....Beethoven
(a) Second Movement. Allegretto scherzando, (b) Third Movement. Tempo di minuetto
Beethoven himself spoke of his Eighth Symphony as the ' Little Symphony in F ', and as one of which he was particularly fond, perhaps for the reason that it is in spirit the brightest of the whole nine.
Tchaikovsky once wrote an anatysis of this symphony, from which we quote: 'It is the fast bright smile, the fast response given by the poet of human sorrows and hopeless despair to the voice of gladness..... It is fitted with a spirit of serene content and unrestrained joy. It depicts the gentle, earthly delights of humanity before the soul is distracted by evil, doubt, and despair.'
In this symphony Beethoven's ever deiightful humour appears at its most puckish.
Dream Children...........................B/gar
(a) Andante ; (b) Allegro piacevole —Andante
After reading Charles Lamb 's ' Dream Children ' from the ' Essays of l, Elgar was moved to compose two orchestral pieces which he entitled ' Dream Children '. The two pieces illustrate the mood of the following passage : ' And while I stood gazing, both the children graduall grew fainter to my view, receding, and still receding, till nothing at last but two mournful features were seen in the uttermost distance, which, without speech, strangely impressed upon me the effects of speech: " We are not children of Alice, nor of thee. nor are we children at all ...We are nothing; less than nothing, and dreams. We are only what might have been."'

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.
