: Junk

George C. Nash
This is one of a series in which George Nash, the well-known Ulster humorist, takes listeners on a tour of exploration of his attic, a mysterious treasure-house between the ceiling and the roof, where he has found all kinds of odd things from a Japanese earwig trap to a stuffed fish.
Nash has the priceless gift of finding humour in the humblest object, the simplest situation. In his attic he has found a rich mine of inspiration for his talks. A few bits of a grandfather clock revived the story of why he took the clock to pieces one rainy afternoon ; the counterfoil stump of an old cheque-book brought back a flood of entertaining reminiscence.

: A Sonata Recital

Florence Hooton (violoncello)
Dorothy Manley (pianoforte)
Since 1934 when Eric Fogg was transferred from Manchester to London to take over the musical directorship of the Empire department, he has had neither the time nor the inclination to compose. This is a pity, for he has shown, notably in the Bassoon Concerto and the String Quartet, that he is a sensitive and very gifted composer.
The Poem for cello and- piano to be heard this evening was written in 1923 and dedicated to Kathleen Moorhouse , who has since become his wife. It is a short, expressive little work with a particularly effective cello part.
Sonata in A minor, Op. 36 Grieg
1 Allegro agitato. 2 Andante molto tranquillo. 3 Allegro molto e marcato
Grieg wrote only one sonata for cello and piano and dedicated it to his deceased brother, whose thoughtful and passionate moods the music is intended to portray. It was written when Grieg was forty-two, and was published in 1885. It is a dramatic work beautifully written for both instruments and very characteristic of the composer's clear and fanciful style.

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.
