: 'THE MAD MULLAH OF SOMALILAND'

Lt.-Col. H. S. Scott-Harden ,
O.B.E
Mahomed Abdullah Hassan, better known as ' The Mad Mullah ', was an Arab or Somali preacher who in the early years of the present century instigated a holy war against the Christians. Beginning with only a handful of followers, he soon collected an army of seven or eight thousand armed with rifles and spears.
By 1903 his raids into British territory had become such a serious nuisance that an expeditionary force was despatched to suppress him. To this Lt.-Col. Scott-Harden was attached and this afternoon he will tell listeners something about the campaign.
So far from being mad, the Mullah appears to have been an exceedingly astute general. The epithet ' Mad ' was simply an abbreviation of 'Mahomed '.

: OCCASIONAL MUSIC

A programme of gramophone records presented by Scott Goddard
Scott Goddard , well-known broadcaster of music talks and music critic of the News Chronicle, has planned this series of recitals to give the listener the opportunity of hearing some of the fine music written for ' special occasions ', either public or domestic. Incidentally, certain pieces will be played during the course of the series that are not necessarily first-rate music but are interesting because of the historic occasion for which they were meant.

: KINGS OF THE KEYBOARD

No. 6—Arthur Sandford
Born in London, Arthur Sandford studied at the Royal Academy of Music, where he won many distinctions, including the Sir Michael Costa Scholarship , Dove Prize, Charles Lucas Prize, and the coveted
Mendelssohn Scholarship for composition, the first holder of which was Sir Arthur Sullivan. Sandford has had a wide musical experience, for in addition to practising the serious side of the art, he has appeared as solo pianist in music-halls, in Debroy Somers 's Band, and in several popular musical productions. In 1923 he received the Gold Medal of the Worshipful Company of Musicians, and in 1934 he joined the staff of the BBC as pianist in the Variety Orchestra.

(Section C)
Led by Marie Wilson

Music by Schubert
Overture, Alfonse and Estrella
Entr'acte and Ballet Music (Rosamunde)
Symphony No. 4, in C minor (The
Tragic)
1 Adagio molto-Allegro vivace. 2 Andante. 3 Minuetto: Allegro vivace. 4 Allegro
Schubert's' three-act opera Alfonse and Estrella is a hotch-potch of battles, love, conspiracy, hunting, peasant life and other operatic conventions of the day. Like Schubert's other operas, it was not a success. It was, however, ultimately performed at Weimar under Liszt in 1854, and again, with a rewritten libretto and many cuts, in 1881 at Karlsruhe.

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.
