Sarah Fischer comes from Montreal, where she received her early musical training. She won a scholarship at the Royal College of Music, which entitled her to three years study there. On completing her studies Miss Fischer joined the newly-formed British National Opera Company and made her debut at Bradford as Eva in The Mastersingers. Soon afterwards she appeared at Covent Garden as Pamina in The Magic Flute. In 1926 Miss Fischer sang in Brussels and at the Paris Opera Comique, and in the following year at the Opera in Monte Carlo, where she was heard as Melisande in Debussy's Pelleas and Melisande and in the title role of Thomas's Mignon.

: NIGHT OUT AT THE EMPIRE EXHIBITION

with P. I. Keith Murray from the Empire Exhibition, Glasgow
This is already the third broadcast in connection with Scotland's greatest exhibition, which was opened this morning by H.M. the King at Ibrox Stadium, approximately next door to the exhibition grounds; for last night listeners heard something of the gaiety of the ' Eve of Bellahouston' celebration ball in St. Andrew's Hall, Glasgow.
Tonight, in the first of several broadcasts of the kind, P. I. Keith Murray will take listeners on a tour of the exhibition and show them some of the wonders that are being seen by the public this evening, and will be seen during the summer by many of those who will be listening to this broadcast.

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.
