: 'A HAPPY NEW YEAR'

A recorded programme of New Year's
Greetings from many lands
Arranged by the International
Broadcasting Union
For two years past there has been broadcast a programme of New Year good will between nations. The broadcast this year will consist of the spoken greetings of twenty-three European countries. The various countries will greet the world in their own languages, and there will follow in each case a peal of the most famous bells in that land.
Among the notable European chimes that will be heard will be those of Cologne Cathedral in Germany, Roskilde Cathedral in Denmark, Notre Dame in Paris, St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin, St. Veits Cathedral in Prague, and the well-known London carillon of St. Clement Danes.

: CALLING ALL DOGS

' Down, sir, down! '
-An experiment in remote* control broadcast from New Pond Kennels,
Worplesdon
This evening, on the eve of ' Dog
Licence Day ', R. M. Montgomery , owner of Scruffy, the celebrated film dog, is going to give a broadcast specially for ' man's first friend'. The broadcast will come from Montgomery's kennels at Worplesdon, and he will put his own dog Brenda through a number of obedience tests. Dog owners, it is hoped, will see that their pets are hard by the radio to see if they recognise their own names and the various familiar sounds that the broadcaster will put across.

On his way to England Gerard preaches in Rotterdam, where he sees Margaret, as he thinks, in a vision. He is called to shrive the dying Ghysbrecht van Swieten, who promises to make restitution to Margaret for an ancient wrong done to her family.
Gerard goes to Gouda, where he lives as a hermit in a cave. Here he is visited by Margaret, but resists all her entreaties to go back to her. When Margaret has left him, Gerard finds an unknown child in his cave.

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.
