: CEILIDHE IN CUSHENDALL

being an evening in a farmhouse in the Glens of Antrim
The little village of Cushendall, which lies in the lovely Glens of Antrim, was visited last summer by the van which eavesdropped on a ceilidhe-an informal country party at which young folk of the'district gather and dance the traditional dances, and the older people sit round the turf fire and talk about life in general, the good old davs, and the Glens in particular.
Near by is Tiveragh, home of the fairies, and at this ceilidhe the recording van heard some strange things about ' the little people

: A SONATA RECITAL

Hildegard Arnold (violoncello)
Lucy Scollick (pianoforte) Emile Sjogren , who was born in Stockholm in 1853 and died there in 1918, was one of the most distinguished composers in Sweden. He studied at the Stockholm Conservatoire and in Berlin. Most of his life was spent in teaching, organ playing, and composing. He wrote a great deal of chamber music and numerous short piano pieces and songs, all of which were- characterised by able workmanship and a delicate poetic fancy. He might well be summed up as a lesser Grieg. Beethoven's Twelve Variations on ' Ein Madchen oder Weibchen ', which is one of Papageno's arias in Mozart's Magic Flute, is one of the most beautiful of Beethoven's many sets of variations. It is admirably written for cello, exploiting to the full the rich lyrical genius of the instrument. Another important feature of the variations is that the treatment is full of fine contrasts.

: 'CLOUDS HILL'

E. M. Forster
Clouds Hill , the Dorset cottage of the late T. E. Lawrence , has recently been handed over to the National Trust by A. W. Lawrence as part of the memorial to his brother. It is now open to the public. It lies in isolated heath country a mile and a half to the north of Bovington Camp. Lawrence bought the cottage while serving as an aircraftsman at Bovington in 1924, and retired there permanently when he left the Royal Air Force.
E. M. Forster , distinguished novelist and man of letters, paid many visits to Clouds Hill in Lawrence's time. Tonight he will recall some of his personal memories of the cottage and its owner.

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

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.
