: A Recital

Guelda Waller and Vera Maconochie (in songs and duets)
William Busch (pianoforte)
Guelda Waller and Vera Maconochie, famous for 'Old Song Pictures', thought of the idea when they were both in the cast of The Beggar's Opera at the Lyric, Hammersmith, and saw each other every evening in eighteenth-century costumes. They have been broadcasting regularly since 1930, were among the first to be televised, and won further fame in the London Children's Hour for their Animal Nursery Rhymes. This evening, for the first time, they are to give a modern group of songs on the air; several of the songs, among them ' A Little Ghost of Summertime', have been specially arranged for them. In September, by the way, they are to appear for the first time in a television programme at Alexandra Palace.
William Busch was born in London in 1901. He studied in Berlin, piano under Leonid Kreutzer and composition under Hugo Leichtentritt , and then in London mainly under Mabel Lander for piano, and Alan Bush , John Ireland, and Bernard van Dieren for composition. Mr. Busch gave the first of a number of London recitals in 1927, and his first broadcast was given from Savoy Hill in December, 1929. He has played in Holland and Germany and the United States.

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.
