: 'THE CHARM AGAINST THIRST'

A short story by Lord Dunsany read by Kevin Fitzgerald
(First broadcast in the National programme on February 13)
This is the fourth and one of the best of ' The Travel Tales of Mr. Joseph Jorkens ' — that delightful person who would always tell a tale for a drink. Did Mr. Jorkens, walking westward up the Strand on a warm summer's day, with a thirst and no money with which to quench it, invent the whole thing ? Anyhow, he swung the charm at the end of his watch-chain for everyone to see, much as an angler spins something bright in the water to catch a fish. The fish Mr. Jorkens caught was, of course, Lord Dunsany-and listeners should be grateful that he did.

: TWO MEETINGS WITH THE KAISER BEFORE THE WAR

Dame Ethel Smyth , D.B.E.,
Mus.Doc.
Dame Ethel Smyth's first meeting with the Kaiser occurred at a dinner-party in March, 1902. just before the Berlin production of her opera
Der U'ald. On that occasion they talked for an hour and three-quarters, and the Emperor lectured the composer on his scheme for reorganising the British Army. The second meeting took place about two months later. On this occasion,
Dame Ethel wrote in her book
'Streaks of Life. a previously formed impression deepened : namely, that but for his inconceivable vanity the Kaiser would have been one of the most remarkable of men'.
She still feels that he was a puppet in the grip of forces beyond his control and 'a victim of our (very human) tendency to fabricate scapegoats

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.
