: AN ORGAN RECITAL

from the Concert Hall,
Broadcasting House by Ralph Downes
(First broadcast performance)
Hindemith has written two Sonatas for organ, both of which were written in 1937. In style and content they continue on the lines of the three piano sonatas written in 1936. They exhibit a strong tendency to reconcile modern counterpoint with tonal harmony, a tendency which the composer has advocated theoretically in his recent treatise ' Unterweisung im Tonsatz '.
Both Organ Sonatas received their world first performance by Ralph Downes last January.

: PROFESSIONAL ICE HOCKEY

Detroit Redwings v.
Montreal Canadiens
A commentary on the final period of the Challenge Match by Stewart MacPherson from the Empress Hall,
Earls Court
This is the first broadcast of a professional ice-hockey match in Europe. It is the fifth of six matches at the Earls Court and Brighton rinks between Detroit Redwings and Montreal Canadiens. Three years' ago Detroit put the Canadiens out of the world championship final ; last winter the Canadiens got their own back in the semi-final. There is a side stake of £1,000 on the result of this series of six matches.
To show how evenly the teams are matched, in the first match at Earls Court on April 21 Montreal won by 5 games to 4, and at Brighton on April 23 the result was a tie-5 all.
The outstanding difference between the professional game and the amateur is that in the professional game body-checking is allowed in all areas and on the boards, and in the amateur game it is forbidden in the middle area or on the barriers.

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.
