: 'THE FAMILY HEARTH'

H. E. Norman , O.B.E.
The speaker is to picture the rush home at midday on a Saturday in all parts of the Empire. The week's work is over ; the family circle begins.
He will speak of the change which has taken place in the family during the last fifty years-girls and women, for instance, going out to work as well as men. He will discuss the parts which both the father and the mother of the family have to play ; the changed attitude of young people, and the need for better understanding. Change is in the order of things. But family life, Mr. Norman argues, is essential to the Empire. He is Secretary of the Clarke Hall
Fellowship for the development of juvenile courts and social work, and took part in the broadcast discussion on prisons last October.

: CHAMBER MUSIC

The Norbert Wethmar Pianoforte
Quintet:
Norbert Wethmar (violin)
Nathan Comras (violin)
John Yewe Dyer (viola)
Walter Nunn (violoncello) Wilfrid Parry (pianoforte)
In the spring of 1918 Elgar went to live in a cottage at Fittleworth, Sussex, and his first creative impulse was to turn his attention for the first time to chamber music. The result was a sonata for violin and piano, a string quartet, and the piano quintet to be heard this afternoon.
The Quintet is undoubtedly the best of these three works. It is designed on a larger scale and contains some of Elgar's most thoughtful music.

: THE BBC NORTHERN IRELAND ORCHESTRA

Leader, Philip Whiteway
Conducted by Arnold Perry
The history of Borodin's Second Symphony is closely linked with that of his opera Prince Igor. The first ideas for the symphony occurred to him early in 1869, but in April of that year Stassov suggested the opera subject to him, and for a time he devoted all his energies to Igor. Then he decided (temporarily) that the subject was unsuitable. ' Don't worry about it ', he wrote to Stassov. 'The material won't be wasted. It will all go into my Second Symphony.'
Accordingly the first movement of the symphony was written in 1871. During the period 1874-76 he was working at both opera and symphony, and the last two movements of the symphony were based on themes originally intended for an epilogue to Igor.

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.

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.
