What two onlookers think of the problem
Listeners have heard talks in this important series by both mistresses and maids, by i woman who deliberately sought service in a one-maid household to find out for herself both sides of the question, and, last week, was heard the registry-office point of view. Today two onlookers, are to come to the microphone to give their opinions-a woman estate agent and a retired naval commander.

: THE BBC NORTHERN IRELAND ORCHESTRA

Leader, Philip Whiteway
Conducted by James Denny lohn McAlpine (baritone)
Glinka wrote the orchestral piece Kamarinskaya ' on two folk songs (a bridal song, and a snatch of gypsy dance melody from which the composition takes its name) in 1848 for the Governor of Warsaw's private orchestra. Glinka was the least self-conscious of geniuses (or almost-geniuses). In composing ' Kamarinskaya ' he had no aim deeper than the killing of boredom during an empty winter; actually, he was laying the foundation stone of Russian symphonic music.

: MAIL COACH '

Its evolution and heyday
Compiled from material supplied by George Wright and Igor Vinogradoff
The Speakers
V. C. Clinton-Baddeley , Norman Shelley , Carleton Hobbs ,
Gladys Young , J. B. Rowe
The programme arranged and produced by Felix Felton
(' Mail Coach ' was first broadcast on March 26, 1937)
This programme looks back to the time, just over a hundred years ago, when letters and passengers were conveyed by the mail-coach. Travel had an exciting side to it then, which for all the increased speed and comfort is to some extent missing in these days. Travel was jeopardised then by anything from bad weather to highwaymen, and even by the temperament of the coachmen.

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.
