(All items are traditional, and arranged by Yascha Krein )
Today Yascha Krein , Russian-born musician, will come to the microphone with his Gypsy Orchestra for one of his bi-monthly broadcasts. His orchestra, which consists of three violins, cello, bass, piano, piano-accordion, szimbalon, is noted for the gay light-hearted character of its music.
Yascha Krein himself has been playing in this country for thirty-four years, and has played in the old Queen's Hall Orchestra under Sir Henry Wood , has led a Viennese Orchestra in Scotland, and also led the Russian Imperial Orchestra which played at a well-known West-End hotel from 1910 to 1921. It was here that he discovered that English people are extremely fond of Hungarian Gypsy music and Russian traditional music, of which he has made a special study.

: THE WORTHING MUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA

Leader, Harry Lipman
Conductor, Herbert Lodge from the Town Hall, Worthing
When Herbert Lodge was invited to direct the Worthing Municipal Orchestra for the winter season four years ago, music in the town was languishing in the doldrums. Today, as Mr. Lodge is about to enter on another season, Worthing is one of the most flourishing musical centres on the South Coast.
For his first engagement he played classical concerts with an orchestra of only eighteen performers. Such was the success and popularity achieved that in this short space of time, Worthing can boast now of a Symphony Orchestra of fifty.
During this winter Herbert Lodge is planning a scheme to encourage children to play orchestral instruments. There is already a juvenile orchestra in Worthing.
Since he became the youngest member of the Royal Opera Orchestra at Covent Garden in 1913, Herbert Lodge has followed a musical career.
. He was, incidentally, one of the first people to broadcast from Savoy Hill, when, at that time, he was connected with various small orchestras.

: THE STORY OF THE ROCKS

' Nature the Builder'
Maurice Black
Dr. M. Black is lecturer in Geology at Cambridge and has studied his subject extensively both in England and in the U.S.A.
He will describe the origins of new land masses, mountains and so on, and show how the rubbish which filled the basins of seas in centuries gone by slowly buckled up to form mountain chains and new stretches of land. Various substances such as limestone, sandstone, and slate will be discussed, and it will be shown how the rocks that make up the British countryside were formed by such processes as coral building and glacial deposit.

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.
