: 'MADAM, WILL YOU WALK?'

A radio played based on a ghost story by Dr. Montague Rhodes James (sometime Provost of King's College, Cambridge) called ' Martin's Close '
Recalling the trial of George Martin for murder before the Lord Chief Justice at the Old Bailey on Wednesday, November 19, 1684
The play written by C. Whitaker-Wilson
Produced by John Cheatle
The article by C. Whitaker-Wilson on page 8 introduces this play, which is based, he says, on ' one of the spookiest and most blood-curdling stories in English history '. One of the most remarkable side-issues of the story, in which the old air 'Madam, will you walk? * plays the part of something far more significant than a mere theme-song, is the historical fact that the notorious Judge Jeffreys , of Bloody Assizes fame, sang that song in court at the Old Bailey. This incident is introduced into the play.

: SCHUBERT

Quintet in A, Op. 114
(The Trout)
1 Allegro vivace. 2 Andante. 3 Scherzo: Presto. 4 Thema con variazioni (Andantino). 5 Allegro giusto played by The Reginald Paul Pianoforte
Quartet:
George Stratton (violin)
Watson Forbes (viola)
John Moore (violoncello)
Reginald Paul (pianoforte) and Victor Watson (double-bass)
In the summer of 1819, Schubert set off on a carefree holiday with his friend Vogl. The trip began and ended at Steyr, a charming little town near Linz, and Schubert's letters written there are full of enthusiasm for the beauty of his surroundings, and for the happy company in which he was making so much music. It was for a group of the friends by whom he was surrounded that this quintet was written. Here, as in the ' Death and the Maiden' string quartet, Schubert has built up one of the movements on a song of his own, ' Die Forelle' (' The Trout').
The fourth, the second last movement, begins with the song played simply by strings alone, and six variations of it follow.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
