: LESLIE JEFFRIES AND HIS ORCHESTRA

Selection, Bitter Sweet Noel Coward
Leslie Jeffries is back in the news with a bang. On January 1 he was appointed Music Director of the Carlton Hotel, and gave his first broadcast with his Sextet from there on January 13 ; his second broadcast from the Carlton will be on February 13. But his many admirers who looked forward so much to his Sunday-evening broadcasts from the Grand Hotel, Eastbourne, will be even more pleased to hear that he is again to go on the air on a Sunday night-on February 19, from the Royal Automobile Club, London, where he and his Septet have been playing on Sunday nights since August last year.

: A RECITAL

Gregori Tcherniak (balalaika)
Geoffrey Sisley (guitar)
(All arrangements by Janos)
These two accomplished artists have been playing together for some time now. Gregori Tcherniak first broadcast from Savoy Hill in 1927 and has been heard with his balalaika on a great many occasions since then. He possesses, by the way, an extremely fine collection of musical instruments, including the balalaika with which he gave his first broadcast, and which he bought for 7s. 6d. at a secondhand stall. Although the balalaika is mostly used for accompaniment, Gregori Tcherniak was convinced that it was capable of far wider things, and has made many balalaika arrangements of classics which he used to play on the violin.
Geoffrey Sisley plays the guitar almost exclusively and has been broadcasting with the Karl Caylus Players for some years. He has played fretted instruments since he was a small child, and holds that the balalaika and guitar together form one of the most attractive combinations of such instruments.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal of behalf of UFAW (THE UNIVERSITIES'
FEDERATION FOR ANIMAL WELFARE) by the Hon. HAROLD NICOLSON ,
C.M.G., M.P., and ' 'FOUGASSE'
In combating cruelty to animals and encouraging love and understanding of them, the Universities' Federation for Animal Welfare enlists the help of teachers, students, men and women of science, and other technical experts.
The Federation is at the moment chiefly known to the public through its programme of legislation on trapping and rabbit-control. For example, Lord Sempill's bill has been introduced this session with Government facilities, and the Hon. Harold Nicolson 's bill is awaiting introduction. Ever-increasing opportunities of benefiting animals are in sight, but the income of the Federation is insufficient to meet even the present essential expenditure. As the University of London Animal Welfare Society it was, however, in a similar situation when a BBC appeal in 1933 saved it from disaster.

: Henry Ainley in 'Les Misérables'

The fifth of twelve episodes of Patrick Riddell 's adaptation of Victor Hugo 's famous novel
With music specially composed by Robert Chignell
' The House of Gorbeau ' in which Henry Ainley plays the part of ' Valjean '
Baliol Holloway as ' Javert ' and the story-teller is Leo Genn
(by permission of Godfrey Tearle )
Play produced by John Cheatle
After serving nineteen years in the galleys for a petty theft, Jean Valjean , a penniless French peasant, is released into a native land upon which he vows eternal vengeance. He is, however, spiritually redeemed by the saintly old Bishop of Dauphine, from whom he endeavours to steal a pair of silver candlesticks. In consequence Valjean determines to atone, and, changing his name to Madeleine,' becomes a wealthy and philanthropic merchant in the town of Conthil in Lorraine. Here he adopts, an orphan child named Cosette, but falls in with a brutal police official named Javert, who was his one-time slave-master on board the galleys. Javert unmasks Valjean and has him sent once more to his galley bench.
Last week you heard how Valjean escaped again, collected the fortune he made in Conthil and flew with Cosette to Paris, where he hoped to remain safely hidden. But Javert sticks indomitably to the trail, and in today's instalment you will hear how Valjean and Cosette take up lodgings in the gloomy house of the treacherous Madame Gorbeau , and how once again Javert seeks them out.

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.
