: A VIOLONCELLO RECITAL

by Florence Hooton
(First broadcast performance)
Florence Hooton , who comes to the microphone with another popular violoncello recital this evening, has had extensive experience at the microphone. She has been broadcasting ever since Savoy Hill days, and is now playing for television. She was the first cellist to do so. Florence Hooton comes from a musical family, and her father was principal cellist in the Spa Orchestra at Scarborough. At the age of six his daughter made her first public appearance as a pianist, and thereafter studied the cello at the London Violoncello School and the Royal Academy of Music. She has given several first performances with the orchestra, among which have been Frank Bridge's Oration (Concerto
Elegiaco) and York Bowen 's Rhapsody. She is also a member of the Grinke Trio.

OF THE
ROCKS
' The Geologist at Work '
C. E. M. Bromhead
This final talk in the series will describe the work of a professional held geologist and show how such experts can determine the character of the rock formations that lie under their feet.

: LIGHTS OUT FOR HALF AN HOUR !

Two short and sinister plays
' The River Glideth' by Norman Edwards and ' Death in the Crisis' by Peter Cheyney
In which are discovered
A Ghost and a Murderer
The plays produced by John Cheatle
Macabre radio plays are becoming extremely popular, and those listeners who enjoyed the recent programme ' Macabre ' from the West of England may look forward to another treat tonight, for, we are assured, these two short plays are as bone-chilling as the most thrill-hungry listener could wish for.
Both the authors of these plays have had a good deal of radio experience. Norman Edwards is the author of many radio plays-Quarrel Island, Death of an Artist, and The Case of Lady Tallond, to mention but a few. Peter Cheyney is well known as a short-story writer, and has made a speciality of the English crime story. He has written nine radio plays including Death in the Crisis.

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

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.
