: FRENCH PIANOFORTE MUSIC—

played by Frank Mannheimer
Frank Mannheimer 's first visit to Europe was in the ranks of the American Army during the war. It was at the very outset of his career that music had thus to be laid aside, but he was fortunately able to return to it, and when he next came from the United States he had already a firmly established reputation as a concert pianist. Since then he has often played in London, and at all the principal European centres, where he has shown himself to be an artist of very great power and subtlety.
He was chosen as the representative American pianist to join the Brosa Quartet in Bloch's Quintet at the International Festival at Siena, in 1928, and has appeared in England on several occasions in recitals of American music.
Further programmes in this series will be broadcast on Wednesday (Regional, 6.0), Thursday (Regional,
6.35), and Friday (National, 9.30).
An article by Constant Lambert will be found on page 10.

: Great Plays, No. 3 Michael Redgrave

(by permission of Gainsborough
Pictures, Ltd.) in 'THE SEAGULL' by Anton Chekhov , translated by Constance Garnett
Cast
The action takes place in the house and garden of Sorin's estate in Russia during the last decade of the last century
There will be three brief intervals during the play to indicate the passage of time
The play adapted for broadcasting and produced by Barbara Burnham
In this play Chekhov reached the height of the wit, parody, and satire with which he made his name as one of the world's greatest playwrights. Like many of Chekhov's plays The Seagull is set in a large country house in nineteenth-century Russia, and here are collected a company of people each with private hopes, happinesses, and fears.
Trigorin, the chief male character in the play, is said to be largely autobiographical, but listeners, while they may take Trigorin seriously, should be warned not to take too serious a view of the play's opening act, which is a violent parody of the symbolist Russian drama typical of the times in which The Seagull was written.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of GLASGOW ROYAL INFIRMARY by DAVID BRUCE WARREN , O.B.E.
From its earliest days the Glasgow Royal Infirmary has played an important part in the teaching of medicine and surgery, and was a pioneer in the training of nurses under Mrs. Rebecca Strong , a pupil of Florence Nightingale in London after the Crimean War.
In the wards of Glasgow Infirmary Lord Lister first practised antiseptic surgery. and there too occurred later Sir William McEwen 's discovery of aseptic surgery. The first X-ray apparatus in the world to be used for medical purposes was installed in' Glasgow Royal Infirmary in 1896. The daily average number of beds occupied last year in the Infirmary and its auxiliary institutions was 960.
About a thousand patients attended daily at the out-patient department.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to The Hon. Treasurer, [address removed]

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.
