The BBC Revue Chorus and Augmented Variety Orchestra
Conducted by Charles Shadwell
Few figures of stage or screen can point to a career more romantic, and in itself theatrical, than Jessie Matthews. Shortly after the war she was selling apples from her father's barrow in Soho. Today she is a film and stage star of international repute. The story of this career will be unfolded tonight as Jessie, and many of those with whom she has been associated in her rise to fame, come to the microphone. Among these will be Arthur Rigby , at one time a famous pantomime 'dame', who gave Jessie her first chance at the Kilburn Empire when she was a child. Soon after she was dancing in a Charlot chorus, and within a very short time was signed up with Cochran. Just now Jessie Matthews is rehearsing her new show, I Can Take It, which opens at Sheffield on January 23.
' Star-Gazing' will be broadcast again tomorrow (Regional, 6.0)

Mass No. 8, in C (Mariazeller)

Benedictus. Agnus Dei

Symphony Orchestra
Leader, W. H. Reed
Conducted by Leslie Woodgate
The Missa Cellensis or Mariazeller-Messe, the most popular of Haydn's masses, composed in 1782, was commissioned by an Austrian official, Liebe von Kreutzner, for the monastery of Mariazell in Styria. Mariazell was for many years one of the most frequented places of pilgrimage in Austria, the object of adoration being an image of the Madonna and Child presented to the monastery in 1157, and Haydn himself had visited the shrine as a youth of eighteen in 1750. He is said to have taken special care with the composition of this Mass, though he was not above borrowing for the 'Benedictus' an air from his comic opera, Il Mondo della Luna, composed in 1777.

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.
