: 'THIS SYMPHONY BUSINESS

George Nash ' wants to know'
James Denny explains assisted by The BBC Northern Ireland Orchestra
Leader, Philip Whiteway
Conductor, Walton O'Donnell
It is some months now since, for the benefit of the musically uneducated, though interested, listener, George Nash began his instruction in ' This Symphony Business' at the hands of James Denny. With the aid of the BBC Northern Ireland Orchestra the pair of them have thrashed out questions of all kinds in connection with classical music, and while most listeners will be sorry that the series comes to an end this morning, they will probably agree that if they have listened to it regularly, their lives will be so much the richer through musical appreciation.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE HEDINGHAM SCOUT TRAINING
AND EMPLOYMENT SCHEME by CHRISTOPHER STONE ,
D.S.O., M.C.
This scheme was founded in 1929 by Miss Musette Majendie , starting with one camp at Hedingham Castle, Essex. Its object is to take single men between the ages of 18 and 30 from the Distressed Areas, give them three months' foundation training for indoor and outdoor private service, hotel work, H.M. services, and industrial employment, and eventually to place them in work.
Six hundred men pass through the five camps each year, and the organisation could guarantee employment for at least one thousand men a year if they had the money to train them.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Christopher Stone , Esq., D.S.O., M.C.,[address removed]

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.
