: 'THE WHITE WHALE'

A serial reading from Herman Melville's' Moby Dick ', by Geoffrey Tandy
The Pequod is about to leave the Indian Ocean and is on her way through the Malay Archipelago to the Japanese grounds. In the Straits of Sunda she comes upon a remarkable concourse of whales-vast numbers of them going about their everyday business, as the crews of the boats can see by looking over the gunwale into the limpid water. It is so clear that they can see small whales being suckled. This instalment describes what befell the Pequod in this extraordinary place.

2.5 World History
' A Roman Emperor: Hadrian'
E. A. CRADDOCK
During the Empire of Hadrian in the second century after Christ the Roman Empire reached the height of its power and grandeur. It is generally accepted that Hadrian himself was one of the greatest emperors who ever lived. In this afternoon's broadcast two dramatic interludes will give listeners an impression of the atmosphere that surrounded this great leader. In the first, a scene set in the Imperial Palace at Rome will show in what esteem he was held by his advisers. The second scene will take place in an encampment behind one of the numerous walls that he built, and is a reconstruction of a true incident in which a mad slave attempted to kill the Emperor.

: DEBUSSY

Pour le piano
1 Prelude. 2 Sarabande. 3 Toccata
Cloches a travers les feuilles (Bells through the leaves) (Images, Book 2)
Mouvement (Images, Book 1) played by Frank Laffitte (pianoforte)
Although an Englishman by birth, Frank Laffitte is in upbringing and outlook closely allied to the French, for he comes of a French family and for some years came under the influence of that great French conductor, Pierre Monteux. He has, therefore, a deep insight into and understanding of the spirit of French music, and as an interpreter of Debussy's music he has few equals. During his tours in various parts of Europe and America it was his playing of Debussy's music that aroused the greatest enthusiasm among critics and audiences.
Laffitte studied for the most part at the Guildhall School of Music, where he won a scholarship and several prizes, including the Gold Medal. Later he studied under Katharine Goodson.

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.
