1 I have loved flowers that fade. 2 I praise the tender flower. 3 My spirit sang all day. 4 Clear and Gentle Stream. 5 Nightingales. 6 Haste on, my joys! 7 Wherefore tonight so full of care?
Three short elegies with words by William Drummond
1 Life a right shadow is. 2 The world a hunting is. 3 This life, which seems so fair
Gerald Finzi was born in London in 1901. He studied first under Dr. Bairstow, of York Minster, and then under R. 0. Morris. With the notable exception of a violin concerto Finzi has devoted his creative gifts chiefly to vocal music. A number of important song cycles, such as those to be heard this afternoon, have come from his pen and have enhanced his reputation as a composer.

' Hair Up-Hair Down '
A discussion on the- year's fashion
Alison Settle and Geoffrey Swaffield
The year that is just drawing to a close has been notable for quick and startling changes in the fashion world, and women, obedient to the whims of this capricious dictator, have found themselves chopping and changing almost month by month.
This afternoon Alison Settle, well-known broadcaster on fashion matters, is going to review some of the fashions that have gone before, and probably forecast a few of those that are to come.
Geoffrey Swaffield is a well-known
London hat designer, and claims to be one of the first to introduce the present Edwardian rage. At the moment hair is well and truly ' up ', but, Swaffield tells us, a change may soon be expected, and he is designing all his spring hats for hair worn down

: FRANK WALKER and his MINIATURE ORCHESTRA

with Olive Kavann
Although Frank Walker and his Miniature Orchestra gave their first broadcast in the summer of 1938, Walker has been a radio favourite for many years. With his Octet, which he formed in 1927, he appeared frequently before the microphone in programmes of the best light music. A feature of these broadcasts was Walker's solo cello playing. The Octet was, by the way, the first combination to play in the studios at Broadcasting House, when it was used for testing acoustics.
Walker, who started studying the violin at the age of five, has played in cinemas, conducted symphony orchestra, and played his cello for the Diaghilev Russian Ballet at Covent Garden.

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.
