: ' HUNTED BY KURDS '

Oliver Locker -Lampson
During the Great War Commander Locker - Lampson took a British armoured car unit across Russia from the White Sea to the Caucasus to take part in the fighting in the north of Turkey.
In the course of these operations it was necessary for Locker-Lampson to cross twenty miles of plain ' with only one abominable track' in an open touring car accompanied only by driver, orderly, and interpreter.
How they were ambushed by Kurds-enemies so cruel that Locker-Lampson was advised to poison himself rather than fall into their hands alive-and now they got away, will be told in this exciting talk.

Fritz Weitzmann and Orchestra:
Pianoforte Concerto in D ...... Rowley
(First Performance)
Of late years Alec Rowley has been composing numerous large-scale works. Listeners will remember that in the early part of July his very interesting Concerto for piano and military band was broadcast, with the composer as soloist. His latest work is another Piano Concerto, this time with string orchestra and timpani and side-drum (ad. lib.).
This Concerto in D is very characteristic of the composer's style. The music is lyrical and expressive, particularly in the slow movement, and full of pleasing and straightforward melodies. The harmonies are colourful and of an impressionistic character. The piano writing, although for the most part simple, is very effective.
The first movement is notable for its strong and vigorous rhythms, the second for its delicate and intimate feeling, and the third for its brilliancy, which makes an excellent conclusion to a very notable work.
19.03 Orchestra:
Sonfonie singuliere ...... Berwald
The Berwald family was one of the most distinguished musical families in Stockholm during the first half of the nineteenth century. The two most important members were Johan, who had a European reputation as a violinist at the age of ten and later had three daughters, all singers of repute; and Franz Adolf (1796-1868), Johann's nephew, the composer of this symphony. His ' Sonfonie singuliere ' ¨re was written in 1845.

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.
