: AN ORGAN RECITAL

by George F. Suart from the City Hall,
Newca stle-upon-Tyne
Franck's organ music-the foundation of the modem French school of organ composition-is as small in quantity as it is fine in quality. It consists of three groups of works: the ' Six Pieces ' of 1862, the ' Three Pieces' of 1878, and the Three Chorals ' of 1890. Of the ' Three Pieces', written specially for the opening of the giant organ at the Trocadero during the Paris Exhibition of 1878, the third' Piece héroïque —has always been the most popular.

: 'ALL AT SEA'

or ' The True Story of the Betty Martin '
A Burlesque by The Melluish Brothers
'All at Sea ' was broadcast in the National programme last night
There have been few contributors to the RADIO Times more witty than the Melluish Brothers and one of their merriest contributions was ' All At Sea ', which appeared in the Whitsun Number of 1934. It was the foundation for a radio burlesque which was first broadcast on Christmas Day that year. Edgar Lane took the part of the Skipper. Lawrence Baskcomb , who is to play Captain Brassface in this revival, was the racing baronet in the last Melluish burlesque, Beaten at the Post.

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.
