(Northern Ireland Programme)
This radio play was first broadcast on the Northern Ireland wavelength about a month ago. Tonight it can be heard by a wide circle of listeners. Frank O'Connor is a well-known Irish novelist, and the play is based on one of his short stories. It was written in collaboration with Hugh Hunt , producer at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, and was their first stage work in collaboration. It was produced at the Abbey about a year ago and is being toured in America. It deals with a group of people, most of whom have been witnesses at a murder trial, and one of whom is the acquitted prisoner, returning from the Court in a train.

: THE WORLD GOES BY

A Radio Magazine introduced by F. H. Grisewood
Just before Christmas Bertram Mills told the story of how he began as a circus owner, and Lady. Eleanor Smith described some of her experiences with the circus ; E. L. Hawke , secretary of the Royal Meteorological Society, spoke about Christmas weather, an operator from the International Telephone Exchange about the Christmas work at the Exchange, and the buyer of a big London hotel about buying for Christmas. Commander A. B. Campbell described Christmas dinner that he once had in the Frozen North ; and Commander Ivan Smirnoff , who has flown more miles (over 2,000,000) than any other person living, told about his famous flight with the Christmas mails from Holland to Batavia in 1932. Personalities every bit as famous will be coming to the microphone tonight.

: CALLENDERS SENIOR BAND

Conductor, Tom Morgan
One of the most popular features of broadcasting is the brass band, and most of the crack bands have at one time or another appeared before the microphone. However, until recently the repertoire of the brass band consisted, for the most part, of music of poor quality, but of late years, owing to the enterprise of such bands as Callenders, composers have been encouraged not only to write original works but to make artistic transcriptions of fine music.
This evening's performance by Callenders Band marks the band's hundred-and-fiftieth broadcast. Callenders actually run three bands: the Senior Band: the ' A' Band, which has also broadcast a number of times, the reserve from which members are drawn to fill vacancies in the Senior Band in case of emergency ; and the ' B' Band, which acts as a ' feeeder to the ' A '. Besides these, there is a learners' class where members are taught thf theory of music and given elementary instruction in instrumental work.

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.
