: A RECITAL

Laelia Finneberg (soprano)
Few people realise that Laelia Finneberg is British. Although born in Liverpool, she spent most of her early life in Dublin, where she had her first lessons at the piano at the age of four. Later Madame Finneberg studied at the Royal Irish Academy of Music, but only with the idea of becoming an amateur. At seventeen she obtained a post in the Bank of Ireland, but continued her musical studies. After winning great success at the Dublin Musical Festival she was advised to take up music professionally, so gave up her post with the Bank and went to Vienna to study. Since that time Madame Finneberg has appeared with many of the leading orchestras in Europe.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE COUNCIL FOR THE PROMOTION OF OCCUPATIONAL INDUSTRIES AMONG
THE PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED
(P.O.I.P.H.), by VERNON BARTLETT
(From Geneva)
Once before, fifteen -months ago, Vernon Bartlett appealed for P.O.I.P.H. (The Council for the Promotion of Occupational Industries among the Physically Handicapped), but unfortunately a violent thunderstorm throughout the whole of the broadcast made reception more than difficult. So this evening Mr. Bartlett is again appealing on 'behalf of this charity.
The Society was founded four years ago to meet the need of London's disabled adults, over school-leaving age, who are too handicapped to compete in the ordinary industrial market or to benefit by instruction at residential schools or workshops.
Those who can manage to get there come to the training centres, and the others are taught in their homes by a visiting staff. The output is marketed through the P.O.I.P.H. Show-room at the address below and at exhibitions and sales. During the fifteen months that have elapsed since the last broadcast, the work has made considerable progress.
In October a further development will take place: the institution of a work-seeking bureau for disabled adults in the London district.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

: Songs from the OLD BALLAD CONCERTS

with Isobel Baillie (soprano) Derek Oldham (tenor) Norman Allin (bass)
The BBC Theatre Orchestra
The programme arranged and conducted by Stanford Robinson
Stanford Robinson's 'Old Ballad Concerts' have been among the most popular of all light-music broadcasts. Such composers and lyric-writers as Stephen Adams , J. L. Molloy, Fred E. Weatherly, Edward Lockton, and Guy d'Hardelot played on the average Englishman's love of the robust, the humorous, the pretty, and the unashamedly sentimental, with a skill almost comparable with that of Dickens himself.

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.

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.
