A number of short dramatic interludes will be heard. In the first # these a new apprentice from another German city is being shown round the warehouses, quays, and living quarters of the Hansa merchants. The second interlude will introduce a goldsmith of Visby and his mysterious apprentice. The final scene will tell of the treachery of King Waldemar, and of his destruction of the city's trade.

: Hungarian Gypsy Party

from the Hungaria Restaurant
A Programme of Continental and Gypsy Music played by The Hungaria Gypsy Band
Bela Bizony is the Conductor and the music is introduced by Alexander Howard
From the warm and gaily-decorated first floor room of the Hungaria Restaurant, London, another of the Gypsy Parties will be broadcast this afternoon. These gay and informal occasions are now well known to the majority of listeners, the first having been broadcast over two years ago.
Bela Bizony and the eight instrumentalists of the Orchestra all wear Hungarian gypsy costumes, and play Hungarian and Continental gypsy music with a!l the traditional gusto that is associated with it. Bizony himself, before joining the Hungaria Restaurant some two years ago, was a favourite for many years at the Monte Carlo International Sporting Club.
Spontaneity is the keynote of these transmissions, and this afternoon, as previously, you may expect that some artist who happens to be in the restaurant will rise to give an impromptu performance.
A. H. Howard , the show's producer, became director of the Hungaria in 1923, before which he was a Fleet Street man.

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.
