: MARIO DE PIETRO AND HIS ESTUDIANTINA

Mario de Pietro 's orchestra, the ' Estudiantina ', is solely a broadcasting orchestra. It is composed of an Unusual combination of stringed and fretted instruments of every type, and has more than justified the aim for which it was formed. Since de Pietro arrived in London in 1920, he has appeared as a solo artist at leading halls throughout the country. He has also been broadcasting since 1925. During 1926 he was regularly on the air with his first band, which he formed for the New Prince's restaurant. The engagement lasted for nearly a year, when he decided to continue as a solo artist. For the last five years he has appeared with Powis Pinder 's concert party ' Sunshine ' at the Summer Theatre, Shanklin. His last venture, the ' Estudiantina ', has been regularly on the air since it was formed more than a year ago. He televised for the first time in January at Alexandra Palace.

: ' I WAS A TRAMP'

Anonymous
There are thousands of tramps about, but only' a few are capable of discussing their life in an interesting way without romanticising. The speaker in this series, as listeners who heard the first talk last week will have realised, is an exception, a man who wandered about the countryside for more than eighteen months to return to a normal way of living with a crowd of memories and a gift for describing them. Today he will tell of an extraordinary journey he made from Birmingham to Aldgate.

: ' WHOSE ROAD ? '

A discussion between a motorist, a cyclist, and a pedestrian
The main users of the road today are motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians, and all are responsible for accidents. In this three-cornered discussion each can lay his complaints against the other two, and each of the other two will be there to answer them. It may be the consensus of opinion that the majority of motorists, the majority of cyclists, and the majority of pedestrians are the most careful people. How are the minority to be dealt with ? Listeners will be as eager as the Minister of Transport to hear the answer.

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.

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.
