: 'THE PICKWICK PAPERS'

★ by Charles Dickens
1, ' The Drive to Rochester'
A serial reading by V. C. Clinton -
Baddeley
Here is the first of a new series of readings in which the inimitable adventures of the one and only Pickwick Club will be followed during forthcoming weeks.
V. C. Clinton-Baddeley has gone to pains to select the ripest and liveliest incidents from the posthumous papers of the Club, and presents the first of these this afternoon.
Today you will hear of the formation of the Corresponding Society of the Pickwick Club, and of the memorable journey to Rochester of Samuel Pickwick , Tracy Tupman , Augustus Snodgrass , and Nathaniel Winkle , together with the loquacious stranger who accompanied them. You will hear what they talked about on the way, and how Mr. Tupinan's susceptible heart was stirred by one of the stranger's stories.

★ Joseph Shadwick (violin)
Wilfrid Parry (pianoforte)
Cesar Franck 's Violin Sonata in A was written specially for that great violinist Ysaye and the hardly less distinguished pianist Mme. Bordes-Pene. It is one of Franck's most perfect works, particularly with regard to construction and purity of style. Melodically the whole work grows out of the little figure (D-F sharp-D) which is heard at the beginning of the work. The first movement is full of poetry, the second is an impassioned allegro, and the third an exquisite soliloquy. The fourth consists of a clever and effective piece of writing in canon based on themes from previous movements, after which comes a development section based on all the principal themes of the work, and finally a brilliant conclusion.

: CHILDREN AT SCHOOL

' Outside the Class-room '
W. E. Williams
There is little doubt that a new outlook on education is being consolidated today. No longer are the three R's of the curriculum or the four walls of the class-room considered the be-all and end-all of the subject. More and more are class-room walls being broken down, and children encouraged to profit by life outside as well as learning inside. Out-of-school activity is on the increase, and not only school journeys to countries abroad, but also supervised visits to museums, churches, and other places of interest are broadening the minds of the generation to come. Teachers are increasingly ready to sacrifice their time in order to conduct school parties to such places, or to performances of good plays and concerts.
In the studio this evening W. E.
Williams will have with him the same parent who, on February 13, discussed with him problems of homework.

: ' Z16 '

A play for broadcasting 'by R. C. E. Harding
Produced by Peter Creswell
Characters
Narrator
The Captain of H.M. Submarine
'Z16'
The First Lieutenant (Number One)
The Midshipman (' Snotty ')
The Chief Petty Officer (' Chief ')
Able Seaman Evans and other members of the Ship's
Company
Here is a play that could be produced in no more effective way than on radio. The scene is on board a British submarine, which, caught in the enemy waters of an inland sea by hostile craft, is forced to make a rapid dive to the sea floor. She damages a fin, and in an atmosphere of keen tension, with the dull shock of depth-charges reverberating around her hull, her captain and the ship's company settle down to await the end.
There is bridge, and there is a certain amount of song-though not much of this, as oxygen is running short. It would be unfair to reveal the climax, beyond saying that this occurs when the enemy starts to grapple for the sunken vessel.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
