: A CAROL SERVICE

The BBC Chorus
(Section C) and members of The BBC Military Band
Conducted by Leslie Woodgate from St. Mary's, Whitechapel
Fifteen years ago, in the first year of broadcasting, the Rev. John A. Mayo , Rector of St. Mary's Whitechapel, gave the first sermon ever heard on the air ; and to celebrate Christmas he suggested that some singers should come down from Marconi House to his church on Christmas Eve, and that their singing of carols be broadcast. Once again this tradition is to be renewed. In an interlude between the carols, Mr. Mayo, as is his custom, will give a 'little chat' about Whitechapel, about his work there, and about the parishioners he knows so well. And at the end of the singing the ' waits ' will adjourn with Air. Mayo to the little Christmas feast he has prepared.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section D)
Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Constant Lambert
Snowmaiden was Rimsky-Korsakov's third opera and one of his most characteristic compositions. (I) The opera opens with an orchestral prelude suggesting the gradual awakening of nature from her winter sleep. The oboe imitates a cock-crow, nature's trumpet-call heralding the coming of spring ; the twittering of birds is heard ; gradually the whole orchestra glows with warmth and colour. (2) The ' Dance of the Birds' follows: long frozen, they greet the spring with joyful songs. (3) The action of the human part of this spring fairy-tale passes in the quaint kingdom of Berendeys, a people who live in fantastically shaped houses painted in many colours and are ruled by a kindly but despotic Tsar. Korsakov here paints a procession of the Tsar and his court. (4) Awaiting dawn in the Holy Wood at the spring solstice, the Tsar orders his buffoons to amuse him.

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.
