Conductor, Thorpe Davie
This choir was formed about twenty years ago as a direct outcome of the festival movement. It soon took a high place among women's choirs, and has gained first prize at the Glasgow Festival on many occasions. One of the reasons for its success may be the fact that the choristers are individually pupils of the conductor, who is the father of Cedric Thorpe Davie , the composer, whose ' Dirge for Cuthullinn ' was recently heard in a Scottish programme.

Scotland v. Ireland
A commentary on part of the international match by Leo Hunter from the West Princes Street Halls,
Leo Hunter has added greatly to the assets of the Scottish outside broadcast department since he was appointed an assistant in August of last year. He made his debut with a deiightful commentary on a visit to the Edinburgh Zoo (which earned him in one newspaper the headline ' Leo among the Lions'), and since then listeners have become familiar with his voice when they listen to outside broadcasts from theatres and other places. It was he who introduced Pipe-Major Ross in the programme of piping from Scotland and Czechoslovakia.

An Olla Podrida ,
Devised by G. K. Young and J. W. Taylor
Music by Douglas Steen
Production by Robin Russell
Our dictionary says that an Olla Podrida is a Spanish stew of meat and vegetables, and the authors, in transferring the term to a revue, have in mind the readiness with which one subject gets mixed up with another in conversation. You start talking about mushrooms, but before long everyone is arguing about politics and the next moment women's fashiryns hold the field.
In tonight's entertainment one more feather will be added to the already considerable plumage in the cap of Inspector Hornleigh, for he will be parodied under the title of Inspector Hornspoon. There will be jokes about BBC dramatic effects, Austrian folk songs, and policemen's fashions.
The authors, G. K. Young and Wilfred Taylor , were at St. Andrews together, and now work on the staffs of two leading Scottish journals.

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.
