Conductor, S. W. Underwood
Freda Ravenhill (pianoforte)
Nicolas Medtner occupies a unique position in Russian music. Born in 1879, the youngest member of the Scryabin-Rakhmaninov generation, of partly German, partly Russian blood, Medtner is midway between the orthodox ' nationalist ' Russian school and the German classics. But before anything he is an individualist, and one of the few living artists who are indifferent to fame and shun publicity. Almost all his compositions are for piano or voice, and all bear witness to the loftiness of his ideals and his artistic integrity. Medtner has recently settled in London, where he has a faithful public who admire his great gifts both as a composer who has something to say in his own idiom and who is not concerned with being ' modern ', and as a pianist of the first rank.

' The Basque Refugee Children's
Camp at North Stoneham'
D. M. Fletcher
D. M. Fletcher , who has had much to do with the running of the Basque
Refugee Children's camp, a few miles to the north of Southampton, gives his talk the day before the camp breaks up. By that time it is hoped that new homes will have been found for all the children. It was a tremendous undertaking to bring four thousand children to camp ; particularly when they were in a foreign land, hardly any of them knowing a word of English, and separated from their families and friends.

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.
