Lecture Hall, Birmingham
The Nancy Phillips Trio:
Nancy Phillips (violin)
Frederick Alexander (violoncello)
Wilfrid Parry (pianoforte) One of the finest and most revealing of Brahms's chamber works is the Piano Trio in C minor. It may well be considered an epitome of his work, from both the technical and the emotional points of view. Concise and concentrated in style, it shows Brahms's supreme mastery on The first movementis largely tragic in mood, 'with contrasts of lyrical expressiveness. The swift-moving second movement with its oscillating rhythms and muted strings sets an atmosphere of fantasy and mystery. The Trio is particularly striking in its goblin-like behaviour. The third movement is one of the high lights in the slow movements of Brahms. The finale is a vigorous piece of writing with great rhythmic variety.

: Arctic Excursion

by E. A. Harding
The diary of a journey through Lapland from Royaniemi to Petsamo, illustrated with records made within the Arctic Circle last summer, with the help of the recording unit of the Finnish Broadcasting Company
In the summer of last year Harding, chief instructor of the BBC's Staff Training School, made an interesting tour of Finnish Lapland, in the course of which he kept the radio diary which, cut and edited, will be broadcast this evening. He flew from London to Helsinki, and from there proceeded northwards to the Arctic Circle. At Rovaniemi with a party of Finnish programme officials and four engineers he set out with a recording van and two cars for the barren shores of the Arctic Ocean.
The broadcast will paint a picture of this excursion from its commencement to its conclusion at a point where, 350 miles inside the Arctic Circle, the travellers found themselves separated from the other side of the world and the continents of North America by ice alone.
A selection of photographs taken during the tour is reproduced on page 11.

' How to break every bone in your body'
Robert Wyndham
This is the first of a group of seven talks in which, on Friday evenings, people who have done daring and hair-raising deeds willdescribe some of their experiences
Robert Wyndham , who leads off this saga of narrow squeaks, has done most of the things it is possible to do in an aeroplane short of breaking his neck. He will describe his work as a test pilot, how he has flown for the films in Hollywood, and how he found himself in the middle of a delayed parachute drop with his parachute packed upside down. Wyndham has flown fighting planes in China, the Gran Chaco, Abyssinia, and Spain.

The BBC Orchestra
(Section D)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Clarence Raybould concert presents the first performances of three new works, each of which is by a leading British composer.
The first, a Piano Concerto, is by William Busch , who was born in London in 1901. He studied in Berlin and then in London under, among others, John Ireland and Bernard van Dieren.
Alan Rawsthorne , who is responsible for the second item, also studied in Germany under Egon Petri. He has composed several distinguished works, among which is a Sonata for viola and piano which received its first performance at a BBC concert of Contemporary Music in 1937. The Three French Nursery Songs to be broadcast this evening were first heard at a concert of the Contemporary Music Centre early in 1938 with piano accompaniment.
Erik Chisholm comes from Scotland, where for some years now he has made a name for himself as a conductor and composer in Glasgow. His interests and outlook have been essentially modern, and he has given Glasgow music-lovers many opportunities to hear contemporary music.

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.
