: A RECITAL

Herta Gluckmann (contralto)
Eileen Ralph (pianoforte)
Herta Gluckmann , who was born near Breslau in Germany, comes of musical parents. Both her mother and her father were professional musicians. She studied in Vienna and Berlin.
She received her first engagement to broadcast when only sixteen years old and made such a success of it that it led to recitals in Breslau and later in Berlin and Vienna. There followed a tour of Holland in which she gave nine recitals and broadcast from Hilversum.
She has broadcast from that station once a year since. She has now made her home in England, and gave her first broadcast in this country in 1934. Herta Gluckmann specialises in German lieder singing, though she can sing in five languages, Italian, Spanish, French, German, and English.
Eileen Ralph was born in Perth,
Western Australia. She began her musical studies at an early age and -gained her Associated Board Scholarship at sixteen. At the Royal Academy of Music she won distinctions in piano, singing, and composition, including the Macfarren Gold Medal.
She gave her first recital at the Wigmore Hall in 1934, and has since broadcast a good many times, and has appeared at orchestral and other important concerts in the provinces.

: FENCING

The Foils Championship of Great
Britain
A commentary during the final pool by Charles de Beaumont from the Salle Bertrand
Although, in the nature of things, the fight described may not be the winning fight, it is hoped that Charles de Beaumont may be able to tell listeners the name of the championship winner, or at least of the probable championship winner, before the broadcast finishes. The Foils Championship of Great Britain was won last year and in 1937 by J. Emrys Lloyd , who in the latter year gave a talk on fencing.
Charles de Beaumont is secretary of the Amateur Fencing Association and captain of the British Olympic Fencing team. He was Epee champion of Great Britain in 1936, 1937, and 1938, and has given every commentary on fencing with one exception since this great sport went on the air.

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.
