: ' PRIMROSE 8821'

A short story by J. Jefferson Farjeon read by Philip Cunningham
(First broadcast in the National programme on July 4)
'The voice of your telephone bell at 2 a.m. is entirely different from its voice at 2 p.m. It lacks the familiar note of security. It intrudes on comfort, introducing a disturbing sense of the unknown--of illness, accident, or worse ....
' I jumped out of bed..... I was alone in the house..... The telephone was in the passage. I seized the receiver .... In a hoarse whisper came the words : " Quick! For God's sake! Five, Endale Crescent ".'

: THE LEEDS UNIVERSITY MIDDAY CONCERT

from the University, Leeds
Aubrey Brain (horn)
Harold Bradbury (tenor)
At the pianoforte, Edward Allam
AUBREY BRAIN
Richard Strauss 's father, Franz Strauss , was the first horn player in the Munich Opera Orchestra, so that it was natural the son should know a good deal about the instrument. The Horn Concerto is an early work written in his student days, when he was about seventeen. He composed a symphony at about the same time, which, though it was never published, has been several times performed, notably in England in 1896. Neither work quite reveals or quite conceals the later Strauss of ' Till Eulenspiegel' and ' Ein Helden leben'.

: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Helen Perkin
At the age of three Helen Perkin began to pick out tunes on the piano.
She studied with her mother until the age of eleven, when she had lessons with Arthur Alexander. When she was sixteen, she gained scholarships in both piano and composition to the Royal College of Music, where she studied until she was twenty-two after which she went to Vienna with the Octavia Travelling Scholarship. There she studied composition w th
Anton Webern and piano witn Eduard Steuermann.
Her first broadcast was at Savoy
Hill at the age of nineteen, when she played her own composition, a theme and variations for piano. Since then she has been heard frequently as a pianist and composer from the studios and at Promenade Concerts.
Brahms as a Miniaturist
Even those people who deny that
Brahms deserves to be placed alongside Beethoven as a symphonist all agree that he was unsurpassed as a miniaturist ; as a composer of songs and short piano pieces. The group of pieces, Opus 118, to be heard this evening will give listeners a good idea of Brahms's great genius in this direction.

: ' VICTORIAN NEGATIVE'

A Portrait of Samuel Butler , author of ' Erewhon ', by Stephen Potter
Production by M. H. Allen
Sheep-breeder, pamphleteer, painter, composer, novelist, philosopher, composer,half-a-dozen other things,
Samuel Butler was one of the most remarkable men of that most remarkable age, the Victorian. He was, in fact, the Complete Victorian-in fact the took all that his femllow-
Victorians cherished most, alike in religion and in science, and turned it inside out. But that profound antipathy concealed a still more profound affinity: Butler was himself essentially Victorian.

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.
