: ELSPETH DOUGLAS-REID

in her own character sketches and The Barney Gilbraith Swing
Quartet
Elspeth Douglas-Reid , who is a Scot, began writing her sketches some years ago when teaching elocution and acting in South Africa. Encouraged by success in Johannesburg, she threw up her job at the Conservatoire of Music there and returned to this country deciding to turn her talent to account here. She gets her ideas from watching ordinary people going about their daily business, and jotting down what she hears on envelopes.
Barney Gilbraith in giving the first BBC broadcast with his swing quartet in June this year introduced listeners to an unusually versatile swing combination. The four players are Barney Gilbraith, accordion ; Reg Conroy , piano and vibraphone ; ' Hank ' Hobson, bass ; and Dudley Barber , drums.

: 'CAN MEN BE BROTHERS?'

Impressions of the World Conference of Christian Youth in Amsterdam,
July 24-August 2
The Rev. George F. MacLeod , M.C., D.D., of the Iona Community
Fifteen hundred men and women of sixty nations, few over thirty-five years of age, and most of them under twenty-five, have been meeting during the past fortnight in Amsterdam. They have been praying together, studying and discussing the 'Christian Community in the Modern World'. They have been seeking some solid ground amid the chaos of the modern world. They have had the findings of similar conferences of Church Leaders (in Oxford and Edinburgh 1937, and in Madras 1938) on which to build, and have prepared for this Conference for over two years.
Dr. George MacLeod , one of the speakers at the Conference, comes direct from Amsterdam to the studio to tell listeners what they have found.

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.
