The ballet suite ' Ruses d'amour ', composed by Glazunov for the Petrograd Opera, made its appearance there in 1900. The stratagem of the title is a very old one that forms the basis of many comedies in as many languages. The heroine, to find out whether her fiance is really attached to her, or is merely seeking her for her wealth, changes places with her maid. The stratagem succeeds to the lady's entire satisfaction, and all ends happily.

: 'I KNEW A MAN*

' George Meredith '
Lady Milner
(An electrical recording of a talk broadcast in the National programme on June 6)
Lady Milner knew George Meredith from her childhood days. He and her father, Admiral Maxse, were intimate friends, and the great Victorian novelist would walk the four miles from Box Hill to her father's house at Effingham, and the two men would go for long walks together. Often she accompanied them and when she got tired they would pick her up and take it in turns to carry her while they talked about life, philosophy, and politics.
It is of Meredith the man she speaks-a man who was never embittered by his hard life. His books never began to sell until he was old, but laughter and fun and chaff were sweetness of life to him.

: Reginald Foort at the BBC Theatre Organ

with Vera Guilaroff (Canada's Melody Girl) in a programme of Favourites Old and New.
Vera Guilaroff was born in London. She went to Canada when she was a small child, and was destined to become in her early twenties one of the most popular artists to broadcast with the Canadian Radio Commission, and to become known to listeners all over Canada. Now she is back again in London for the first time since she left it at the age of six, and is having a busy time. Three weeks ago she broadcast in 'Cafe Chantant' last Thursday she gave a broadcast to the Empire with Reginald Foort , and so her admirers in Canada heard her in England. She has done programmes over there with Ray Noble and Rudy Vallée, introducing the former on his only radio visit to Montreal, when she played a selection of his compositions. She has arranged today's programme which she is giving with Reginald Foort, and is to play some of the compositions she has brought over with her.

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.
