' Home-made Syrups'
Anne Beaton
Here is the first of six broadcasts by Mrs. Anne Beaton , formerly Miss Anne Carr , under which name as lecturer-demonstrator on cookery for a well-known firm for three and a-half years she spoke to 180,000 people in all the principal towns in England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. When in Manchester she had an audience of 2,400 and spoke to over 10,000 in the week of four demonstrations. She has also lectured on cookery and other subjects in America. Mrs. Beaton was educated at the Lausanne University and in Paris, studied cookery at the Cordon Bleu, and has passed the City and Guilds cookery examination over here.
It is of interest that she ran away from school to go to the war and drove an ambulance in France. She was awarded the Croix de Guerre with star, and has five other decorations. Based on her experiences, she wrote a biographical book ' Fanny Goes to War'. She has had her own dressmaking establishment, and has studied the violin at the A.R.C.M. and painting in Lausanne. She speaks French fluently and some German.

: CALGARY STAMPEDE

A microphone impression of the annual Wild West show in Alberta, with its parades and races and competitions, its noises and thrills
(The programme arranged by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation)
All the colour and romance of the Western regions of the North American continent are epitomised in what is known the world over as the Calgary ' Stampede ', which lasts five days. Begun as an annual event fifty-four years ago, it offers (amid the sound of thundering hoofs and the beat of Indian tomtoms) a vivid picture of frontier life, -which city dwellers travel thousands of miles to see.
There are all kinds of cowboy sports in which the hard-bitten contestants risk their necks upon wild steers and bucking broncos. Spectators see for themselves what is involved in trying to milk a wild cow. Championships are at stake, including one for steer decorating and another for wild horse riding. A parade of chuck-waggons, cowboys, Indian tribes, Mounted Police, and no fewer than twenty bands, marches for hours through the streets of Calgary on the opening day alone.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
