'The Little Father of the Wilderness' by Austin Strong

A Mammoth Dance Ensemble staged by Jack Swinburne
The nucleus of the King George's Pension Fund for Actors and Actresses was formed in 1911 when the net profits of a gala performance at His Majesty's Theatre, in celebration of the King's coronation, were deposited for the fund. Two years later it was decided to give an annual performance with an all-star cast in aid of the fund. The first of these performances was a production of Dion Boucicault's play, London Assurance, and the cast was all-star indeed, including as it did Herbert Tree, Henry Ainley, Arthur Bourchier, Godfrey Tearle, Charles Hawtrey, Irene Vanbrugh, Phyllis Neilson-Terry, and Marie Tempest.
Since then, with only an occasional year missed, productions in aid of the fund have been given annually and have included almost every type of show from Shakespeare to farce. This afternoon's performance will be given by a strong cast, and five crack troupes of dancing girls are in Jack Swinburne's ensemble.
The commentary will be given by Thomas Woodrooffe.

: Modern Inventions: The 200-Inch Telescope

W.H. Steavenson, F.R.A.S.
The 200-inch telescope that is being built in California will be by far the most powerful in the world.
Dr. Steavenson, who is known to listeners for his monthly talks on the stars in the series 'Science Review', will describe the problems of constructing a telescope of this size— how, for example, it took the best part of a year to cool the glass disc for the mirror, and how an even longer time has been spent in grinding and polishing its surface. He will also tell listeners something of what astronomers are hoping to discover when the telescope is finished.

Sophie Wyss , one of the most versatile singers on the air, was born in Switzerland and spent her youth near Neuchatel, on the borders of German- and French-speaking Switzerland. Owing to this, she claims, she is able to sing German lieder to the manner born, as well as French songs.
Sophie Wyss studied at the Conservatoire de Geneve, and soon after leaving there married an Englishman. She now -lives in this country and returns to Switzerland only for holidays.
In her ten years of broadcasting she claims to have brought to the microphone more new works than any other singer. She was the first to bring to the listening public many of the songs of such composers as Honegger, Milhaud, and Tailleferre. She sings in six languages and has an almost unlimited repertoire.

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.
