2.35 Geography
' Europe and its Peoples '
11—' Sweden ', by C. R. BAXTER
(From Edinburgh)


Unknown: C. R. Baxter


Directed by Guy DAINES
Quilter's Suite ' As you like it' was composed in 1922, and three of its four movements are introductions to different Acts. The fourth is a dance which comes at the end of the play.
The first, ' Shepherd's Holiday', trips along in a joyous 6-8 allegro; the second. 'Evening in the Forest', begins with a fourfold theme, clarinet, a solo horn a solo viola, and 'cellos together, bassoon and other 'cellos playing simultaneous melodies. The third movement, 'Merry Pranks', hurries along with great vivacity, and the Country Dance, which comes at the end of the play, is in a sturdy and vigorous two-beat measure, flute and clarinet beginning the rhythmic melody.

A half-hour's Commentary on the Match between WILLIE SMITH and SIDNEY LEE
Relayed from
The Nile Billiard Rooms, Glasgow Tonight's broadcast is a novelty.
Never before (certainly in British broadcasting) has there been a running commentary on a billiard match. It would, of course, be impossible to describe for the benefit of listeners a whole Billiard Match, for there are other programmes to be considered, but tonight for half-an-hour two ardent billiard fans have dropped in at the Nile Billiard Rooms and are going to describe the play. The match between these two famous professionals has been in progress all this week and should tonight have reached an interesting stage

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.
