: 'Moonstruck Fish'

Herrings were caught in thousands of crans round about the full moon of October 23. They will be caught again in great numbers at the time of the November full moon. The time, place and yield of gluts can be foretold
—How ?
There are years of scientific research behind the prediction and an adventurous tale of co-operation between scientist and the fisherman. A programme of speech and sound will tell this tale against a background of the herring industry. It is hoped that the following, among others, will take part in the broadcast:
Dr. W. C. HODGSON , of the Ministry's scientific staff at Lowestoft. Author of ' The Natural History of the Herring ', etc.
Skipper RONALD BALLS , of Great
Yarmouth
Skipper SAGO, of Lowestoft
Mr G. T. ATKINSON, H.M. District Inspector of Fisheries at Lowestoft-
Arranged by MARY ADAMS

: Act II of Johann Strauss's Opera ' Die Fledermaus '

(The Bat)
Relayed from Sadler's Wells Theatre Scene : Ballroom at Prince Orloffsky's
Cast in order of appearance
Producer, CLIVE CAREY
Conductor, WARWICK BRAITHWAITE
Chorus Master, GEOFFREY CORBETT
The scene of Act II is a fancy-dress ball. It is chiefly concerned with a violent flirtation between Rosalinda and her own husband, who has failed to penetrate her disguise. Before that, in front of her very eyes, he has been flirting with her own maid, whom he had also failed to recognise.
One of the big songs in this act is a Czardas, sung by Rosalinda, who is dressed as a Hungarian Countess. It is in the traditional Hungarian style, alternating between the slow Lassan and the brilliant excitement of the Frischka.

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.
