: 'ANIMAL SNAP'

A Guessing Game
Presented by Leslie Stokes
A week or two ago Leslie Stokes went to the London Zoo to try to persuade, with the help of David Seth-Smith and the keepers, as many animals as possible to be talkative. The idea was to record various noises to be broadcast this afternoon in this diverting guessing game.
Some of the more unusual noises they attempted to record-and it would spoil the fun of the game to say whether they succeeded or not -were the rare bellow of George the alligator, the 'Cup-Final' rattle of a new batch of rattlesnakes, and the half-bark of a hippopotamus, seldom heard.
The roar of a lion most listeners know ; the chattering of gibbons is less distinctive. - Can you guess the animal from the noise it makes ?

: MONTAGUE BREARLEY AND HIS ORCHESTRA

Montague Brearley was brought up in Australia, but went to study in Germany in 1913. When war broke out he narrowly escaped being interned, but got safely back to Australia and shortly afterwards joined the Australian forces and went out to Egypt. In 1922 he again went to Germany to study, and two years later gave his first recital and broadcast in London; He continued to broadcast as a soloist until 1931 when he joined the BBC Theatre Orchestra, of which in the following year he was appointed leader.
Last year Montague Brearley gave up his position with the BBC and formed his own orchestra which consists of fifteen players. During August he and his orchestra will deputise for the Empire Orchestra which will be on holiday, and will broadcast twelve concerts to the Empire during that period.

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.
