Fields, Slough
Net so many years ago Slough was a comparatively small town, chiefly known by those who lived or were in barracks at Windsor, or at school at Eton College. But it has changed and grown with the years, and industry has made it the largest town in Buckinghamshire.
To celebrate its promotion to a Borough (it was granted a Charter of Incorporation quite recently), the Town Council has arranged four days' festivities, including a first-rate Variety entertainment in the Town Hall.
This programme is an excerpt from the same. The programme will he presented, and the acts introduced, by Councillor J. Costello.

Conductor. Sir Adrian Boult
Overture, Genoveva Schumann
For some years Schumann had been trying to get German composers to interest themselves in national opera and thus carry on the work of Weber. At last he decided to do something himself, and towards the end of 1847 Schumann completed the libretto of Genoveva, which was based on the legend of St. Genevieve. About six months afterwards he finished the music, but it was not until June, 1850, that this opera was produced at the Leipzig Opera Mouse. However, it met with very poor success. It must be admitted that the weaknesses of the opera are manifold, but the overture, next to ' Manfred ', is one of the composer's most dramatic orchestral works.

: 'ADVANCE IN THE AIR'

A programme introducing a series of talks on aviation
The programme devised and produced by Felix Felton
Three years ago a series of talks was broadcast under the title ' Conquest of the Air '. They were introduced by a dramatic feature programme telling the history of flight from the early experiments of the Wright Brothers to the then present day.
This autumn a further series of talks is to be given, and these will be similarly introduced by tonight's programme, briefly telling the story of flight since the early days, and in more detail the development of the last three years. It is hoped to include in the programme the voices of some of the record breakers and others who have taken an active part in the thrilling story.

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.
