: A CONCERT

by the Orchestre National
Conductor,
Desire Emile Inghelbrecht from Paris
D. E. Inghelbrecht was born in Paris in 1880. Debussy was one of his greatest friends, and from the earliest days of his career as a conductor he has supported the master's music, giving many performances of his major works. For a time Inghelbrecht conducted the Swedish
Ballet, both in Paris and in London, and he also composed the music to the ballet El Greco , which was one of the most successful in the Swedish Ballet's repertoire. He now occupies the position of chief conductor of the Orchestre National.

: ' A PHOTOGRAPH OF MRS. AUSTIN'

A short story written for broadcasting by R. C. Hutchinson , and read by .the author
There are good sea stories and good uncanny stories, but it is generally, agreed that when the two are combined the result is all that a short story should be. ' A Photograph of Mrs. Austin ' is just such a tale, reeking of wrecks, mysterious mates, and men overboard. Another ingredient is an inquisitive representative of a salvage firm who is the instrument by which the plot is unfolded. R. C. Hutchinson , the author, who will read the story himself, has written a number of notable novels, the best-known of which are ' Shining Scabbard ', ' The Unforgotten Prisoner', and his recently-' published work ' Testament

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.
