Baal Shem (Three Pictures of Chassidic Life)
1 Vidui (Contrition).
2 Nigun (Improvisation).
3 Simchas Torah (Rejoicing) played by Eda Kersey (violin)
Eda Kersey is practically a self-taught violinist. After a year or two's tuition she developed her playing by studying and by constant attendance at chamber and orchestral concerts at which great violinists were playing. When fourteen years old she heard Kreisler, and from that moment set her heart on being a concert soloist. She gave her first concert two years later.
She obtained her first really important engagement in 1925 when she played the Mendelssohn Concerto at the old BBC Bournemoath studio. In 1930 she played the Beethoven and Brahms Concertos at the Proms, and a year later did a tour of Holland. She has been broadcasting for the past thirteen years.

: ' Tunes of the Town An excerpt from the 1,000th performance in the West End of 'ME AND MY GIRL

Book and Lyrics by L. Arthur Rose and Douglas Furber
Music by Noel Gay
The Scene is Hareford Hall
The cast includes
Teddie St. Denis
Wallace Lupino
Doris Rogers
Betty Frankiss
George Gregory
Martin Gray and Lupino Lane with full supporting company
George Windeatt and his Orchestra from the Victoria Palace
Compere, Charles Brewer
This popular musical comedy will probably need little introduction to the majority of listeners, for its big hit ' The Lambeth Walk ' has scored one of the most remarkable song successes in recent years.
Tonight's broadcast will celebrate the thousandth performance of the show, which shares the distinction with only nine other West-End hits since 1875. Me and My Girl opened in December, 1937, and looked like being a failure, when a broadcast from the Victoria Palace sent the public rushing to see it.
This evening you will hear two scenes from the first act. In the first Lupino Lane as Bill Snibson is being taught society etiquette by the Duchess, and in the second the terrace of Hareford Hall becomes the setting for the first introduction of the Lambeth Walk.

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.
