Tell me a Story-2
Many listeners will remember the new series of story readings from ' The Golden Windows ', a book of fables for young and old, by Laura E. Richards , which was broadcast on June 27. This afternoon Mary O'Farrell , again taking the part of the mother, will read six or seven ' Golden Windows' stories to her little daughter, to be portrayed once more by Muriel Pavlow , beginning with that well-known story ' The Pig Brother ' and ending-unless her little girl asks too many questions-with ' Child's Play '.

: A RECITAL

by Vladimir Rosing (tenor)
Vladimir Rosing , born in Leningrad (then St. Petersburg) in 1890, studied singing under Jean de Reszke, amongst others, and at the same time read for the Bar. He made his debut as Lensky in Chaykovsky's opera Eugene Onegin , and first appeared in London twenty years ago. He has toured the world, and 'in 1923 was made head of the opera class at the Eastman School of Music, at the same time as Eugene Goossens was conducting the orchestra there. Rosing exercises the same magnetic force over his audiences as do such singers as Chaliapin. He is at his finest in the songs of his compatriots, and has done his best to make them known to the world. Rosing's recitals, by the way, are models of programme-making.

: A BRITISH PROGRAMME

The BBC Orchestra
(Section C)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Fritz Hart
Fritz Hart , already well known to British listeners, made his name as a conductor in Australia, where until quite recently he was co-director of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. He is now permanent conductor of the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra.
Hart is an old student of the Royal College of Music and his programme this evening consists entirely of compositions by his fellow students. The inclusion of Coleridge-Taylor's Hiau'atlia overture is a special commemorative tribute, for today is the sixty-second anniversary of the composer's birth.

: 'SUMMER OVER THE BRITISH ISLES '—5

' Summer in Wales '
Produced by T. Rowland Hughes
(From Welsh)
Perhaps the most significant of all summer activities in Wales are the innumerable camps which have grown so rapidly during recent years. They range from the usual holiday camps on "the coast, to those arranged for unemployed men and women by different organisations. This programme will reflect the spirit of summer as it finds expression in typical Welsh camps. Special recordings were made by the BBC Mobile Recording Unit.

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.
