followed by ' Coming Programmes'
A Survey of Future Features
Arranged by GORDON GILDARD
In this talk Melville Dinwiddie , Scottish Regional Director, will let listeners into some of the secrets of outstanding programmes to be broadcast during the spring and summer. He will reveal plans for a number of interesting microphone tours which include one to Iona. His talk will be followed immediately by an ambitious trailer which will give sound illustrations of some of the programmes described by Mr. Dinwiddie. A small repertory company will be used to play the parts and excerpts from plays and feature programmes, revues, and musical comedies and records used to ' trail ' musical programmes. The trailer has been devised by Gordon Gildard.
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.
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.
