: ' DOCTORING A MULLAH '

Mrs. Alice Fullerton
Mrs. Fullerton is repeating a talk she gave last October which met with wide response from listeners.
The speaker lived for some months in the wilds of Iran collecting plants for the British Museum. She had many adventures and experiences, one of the strangest of which was when Persian villagers, thinking that so curious a woman must know a lot about medicine, clamoured to be cured of their ailments.

: HARRY ENGLEMAN'S QUINTET

with Harry Porter (tenor)
The Harry Engleman Quintet has been broadcasting regularly now for about three years, though Engleman himself has had a longer radio history. He has broadcast frequently since 1931, when he first appeared with some of his own compositions in the Children's Hour.
Engleman comes of a musical family. His father, Joseph Engle man, was a composer, and his grandfather a trombonist in the old Birmingham Grand Theatre Orchestra. Apart from his work with the Quintet-which incidentally topped the bill at the London Palladium in 1937, and again on December 4 of last year-Engleman broadcasts with the Aston Hippodrome Orchestra, and with the Midland Revue Orchestra, as pianist.

Fernando Germani with The BBC Orchestra
(Section D)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Fernando Germani was born in Rome twenty-seven years ago. Practically self-taught, he began as a pianist, but later became interested in the organ with such success that eventually he was asked to join the staff of the Royal Academy of Santa Cecilia, and of the Royal Conservatoire of Music at Rome.
His international reputation was the result of a chance meeting in Rome with Dr. Alexander Russell , Concert Director of the Wanamaker Organisation of New York and Philadelphia. A series of American and Canadian tours followed, and then upon Lynwood Farnam's death, Germani was appointed chief of the Organ Department of the Curtis Institute, Philadelphia.

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.
