A dramatic chronicle of the events leading up to the Ruskin-Whistler Trial, by James Laver
With Romney Brent as Whistler
Other characters are played by: Valentine Dyall, Ivan Brandt, William Ashley, Carleton Hobbs, Sheila Stewart, Beryl Wylly, Charles Lefeaux, Norman Shelley, H.O.
Nicholson, Leonard Thorne
Production by M. H. Allen
James Laver, who, as well as being an art expert, is an extremely witty novelist, has been at great pains in writing this radio version of one of the most famous legal dog-fights in the nineteenth century. Laver, incidentally, published a book on Whistler a year or two ago.
Controversy was acute when Whistler gave his early exhibitions in London, and when the great John Ruskin attacked him as a coxcomb and impostor, the artist brought a libel action. Whistler received a farthing damages, but the court in particular and the world in general were entertained by a display of wit, rhetoric, and invective that had seldom been equalled in the English courts.

Eda Kersey (violin)
Music by Rumanian Composers
Georges Enesco, violin virtuoso and composer, is considered to be the founder and leader of the Rumanian school of violin composers. Born in 1881, he studied at the Vienna and Paris Conservatoires. At the latter one of his professors was Faure. He is also famous as being the teacher of Yehudi Menuhin.
Stan Golestan is six years older than Enesco. He also studied in Paris at the Conservatoire and at the Schola Cantorum where he came under the influence of d'Indy and Dukas. For some years he was music critic of Figaro.
Marcel Mihalovici is the youngest of the group. Born in 1898 he studied with d'Indy in Paris, where he has resided since 1919. One of his compositions ' Introduction to a ' Symphonic Movement' was awarded the National Prize founded by Enesco for the encouragement of Rumanian composers.

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.

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