: HARVEST HOME

An actuality programme comparing the old and new ways of celebrating
Harvest Home in Wiltshire
Here is a contrast between the old and the new on the English farm-the old which could be so very good on such occasions as the harvest supper ; the new, which, though it is mechanised and colder, has its compensations.
A Wiltshire farmer (and incidentally a famous broadcaster and popular writer) in A. G. Street has reconstructed an old harvest supper. Listeners will hear something of the congenial atmosphere which prevailed after the harvest was gathered in-the camaraderie, the quaffing of the ale or cider, the good things there were to eat, the speeches that were made, the rollicking songs they sang. Real West Country voices will be heard in the programme.
Street himself will link up the old with the new, and another farmer from Wiltshire will tell listeners how in the last year or two he has rewarded his men when the ricks are built and the barns are full, with an outing to town, including a visit to the theatre.

: AMERICA DANCES

Bob Crosby and his Orchestra
Playing in Chicago
(Relayed in collaboration with the Columbia Broadcasting System)
Brother of the celebrated Bing, Bob Crosby will lead his orchestra in tonight's broadcast from Chicago. Although only twenty-five years of age, and despite what he declares to be the great handicap of a famous brother, Bob Crosby has already risen high in a country where good dance bands are, so to speak, ten a penny. With his orchestra Crosby has made innumerable tours throughout the United States and played in most of the famous resorts. Included in his band are such figures as ' Nappy ' LaMare, one of the finest guitar players in the world ; Ray Baudac , who has been jazz drumming since 1916 ; and Marian Mann , famous throughout the United States as a band vocalist.

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.
