: Stereophony

The Third Network transmitters, both medium-wave and VHF, will be used for one channel (left) and the BBC's Television sound transmitters for the other (right). From 9.25 to 9.30 music will be broadcast on the left- and righthand channels alternately to help listeners to adjust their tone controls.
This programme includes Ronnie Aldrich with melody and percussion for two pianos
Jazz For Two Ears
Steve Race looks at the repertoire of stereo. jazz records and a simultaneous broadcast in stereophony, from Saturday Club in the Light Programme
This is the first programme of a new series of stereophonic broadcasts in which listeners may hear the effect of the technique in a wide variety of programmes. In the past notable broadcasts at this time, apart from music, have included Daudet's L'Arlesienne, Bill Naughton 's Wigan to Rome, and William Russo 's jazz opera The Island. In the coming season there will again be contributions representative of almost all aspects of broadcasting including outside broadcasts. In this way the production staff of the BBC are given an opportunity of experimenting and perfecting an exciting new technique.

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
