This combination consists of Harry Engleman (piano), Marjorie Astbury (who is the leader), Leslie Clay , Haydn Yorke (cello), and Reg Whittaker (bass). It has been broadcasting regularly for about three years-recently with Vernon Adcock as xylophonist-and its gramophone records are popular.

'The Changing Shape of Britain'
W. W. Watts, F.R.S.
(Emeritus Professor of Geology, Imperial College of Science and Technology)
Today's broadcast will reconstruct past geography of the British Isles at various times. Deep seas have lain over Great Britain. At other times chains of small islands were all that were to be seen of this country. There were periods of desert and periods of swamp-indeed there are few geographical conditions to which the British Isles have not been subjected at one time or another. The broadcast will refer to material contained in the two previous talks.

: TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THEMOON

The first phase observed through the Radcliffe Telescope at the University of London Observatory, Mill Hill
This will be the first outside broadcast ever done in this country of a lunar eclipse. Listeners, watching the eclipse themselves, will be able to listen to an account by Michael Standing of what is happening at the big Mill Hill Observatory. If it is a clear night three phases of the eclipse will be described-the first phase, the total eclipse, and the final phase. If the weather is unfavourable the first section. only of the broadcast will be given, and Standing will talk about the Observatory and the marvels it contains. The Mill Hill Observatory belongs to the University of London, and contains two giant telescopes, the Wilson telescope and the Radcliffe telescope. The Wilson telescope was presented by Mr. J. G. Wilson, a nephew of the late Sir Henry Wilson , some years before the opening of the Observatory. The telescope was formerly at the Private Observatory at Darramona in Ireland, the property of Mr. W. E. Wilson, F.R.S. The Radcliffe telescope was previously in the Radcliffe at Oxford, and is the gift to the University of London of the Radcliffe Trustees, Mr. G. C. 0. Gregory, Wilson Observer , and in charge of Mill Hill Observatory, will probably answer questions at the microphone.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
