: ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

Natasha Litvin (piano)
BBC Northern Orchestra
(Leader. Reginald Stead )
Conducted by Berthold Goldschmidt
The Italian composer Gian Francesco Malipiero, who will celebrate his seventy-fifth birthday next year, has written nine symphonies to date. His fourth, subtitled In Memoriam, was composed shortly after the war for the Koussevitzky Music Foundation and dedicated to the memory of Natalie Koussevitzky. In a prefatory note the composer states that the work is not intended as an epitaph but rather to suggest a sense of personal loss.

: THE AFRICAN WOMAN IN TOWN AND TRIBE

Second of two talks by J. F. Holleman, Ph.D . Senior Welfare Officer. Bulawayo Municipality
Dr. Holleman speaks about the difficulties of adjustment of African women to living in towns, where circumstances demand that they fulfil primarily the two roles-those of wife and mother-in which in the tribal society of Southern Rhodesia their position is weakest. He considers that this is having a profound effect on the development of urban African societies as a whole.

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.

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.
