: ' THE WHITE WHALE '—1

Ⓓ A serial reading from
Herman Melville's
' Moby Dick ' by Geoffrey Tandy
The first instalment of the new serial tells how the man Ishmael decides to go to sea again and chooses to ship in a whaler. He is particular to sail from Nantucket, the oldest of the whaling ports on the American coast, and on his way there he gets stuck in New Bedford. While he is ready to share a bed with someone, he is in no way prepared for what he finds, a harpooner, tattooed all over and smoking a tomahawk pipe with which he climbs into bed. Ishmael, terrified, starts screaming out for the landlord, and the harpooner — Queequeg — equally alarmed, threatens to kill him. But the landlord comes in time, and this instalment closes with the two sleeping peacefully.

: 'MUSIC AND THE ORDINARY LISTENER'

Modern Music
' How Does it Strike You? '—1
Percy Scholes , B.Mus.
Dr. Percy Scholes 's series of talks on ' Modern Music ' is intended to show the listener what values there are in various types of contemporary music. Nevertheless, instead of telling you what he considers to be good or bad, he will leave you to form your own opinion on the sound principle of ' Every man his own critic '. Some of the music he will present he does not care very much about, but at least he ' understands ' it, so far as the structure and the composer's general aims are concerned. Dr. Scholes is anxious that listeners should also ' understand ' it and then praise or condemn as they think fit. In other words, Dr. Scholes wants to awaken a taste for exploration.
The music will be presented chiefly on gramophone records that as yet have not been heard by the public, for they were specially made for Dr. Scholes.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
