Unilever Limited
Getting a new venture started is easy (be it a house to build or a Polaris missile to make) but keeping the job moving at the best and most efficient speed is much more difficult. The more complex the job, then the more difficult it is to work out what part of it you should do next. One answer is what is called Critical Path Analysis.

TCHAIKOVSKY CENTENARY CONCERT

Opening programme of a series of summer concerts in the Colston Hall,
Bristol
Part 2
The BBC Symphony Orchestra
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Sir Hamilton Harty
National anthems of the Allies
This evening's concert is the first of a series of special summer concerts to be given before an audience at the Colston Hall, Bristol, parts of which will be broadcast. Sir Hamilton Harty opens the series with the first of two Tchaikovsky Centenary programmes. The work to be broadcast on this occasion is the Symphony No. 6 in B minor, the ' Pathetic '.
Tchaikovsky himself called this symphony a programme symphony.
' I have got hold ', he wrote, ' of the idea for a new symphony. This tiine a programme-symphony, but with a programme that shall remain an enigma for everyone-let them puzzle their heads over it.' However, the enigma was solved a few years ago when a paper outlining the plan of the symphony was found in Tchaikovsky's old home. Briefly, the outline is: Active life-love-disappointment-death.

COVENTRY HIPPODROME ORCHESTRA

Conductor, William Pethers
Percy Underwood (baritone)
Percy Underwood first came to the microphone at Savoy Hill in 1927, since when he has been broadcasting fairly regularly. As a boy, he sang in the St. Mary De Lode church choir, Gloucester, and learned the piano from his brother, Samuel Underwood , and Ambrose P. Porter , organist of Lichfield Cathedral. When still in his teens, he won the gold and silver medals at the Bristol Eisteddfod, where the adjudicator, Sir Walford Davies , advised him to carry on with his singing.
Although he has held the post of Assistant Organist in Gloucester Cathedral, and holds the Diploma of Associate of the Royal -College of Organists, Underwood feels singing to be his real vocation. He studied under the late H...Plunkett Greene and Frederick King , and has done a great deal of work in London and the provinces.

BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section A)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Tchaikovsky's Sixth, and last, Symphony was conceived in the winter of 1892-3, and the title ' Pathetic ' was given to it after its first performance.
Tchaikovsky himself called this symphony a programme symphony. ' I have got hold of the idea for a new symphony', he wrote. ' This time a programme-symphony, but with a programme that shall remain an enigma for everyone-let them puzzle their heads over it.'
However, the enigma was solved a few years ago. when a paper outlining the plan of the symphony was found in Tchaikovsky's old home. Briefly, the outline is: Active life—love — disappointment — death. By a striking coincidence the symphony was first performed on October 28, only nine days before the composer's death.

Promenade Concert

Arthur Catterall (violin)
Antonia Butler (cello)
London Symphony Orchestra
Leader, George Stratton
Conducted by Basil Cameron
From the Royal Albert Hall, London
The story of The Firebird is based on a Russian legend. The Firebird flies through a glade in the forest. Prince Ivan pursues it to the gates of the enchanted castle of Kashchez, the magician and fiend. There he captures the Firebird, who offers him a golden feather, a magic protection in all times of danger.
In the castle gardens are thirteen princesses, captives of Kashchez. Ivan falls in love with one of them and they all dance until dawn. He tries to follow them into the castle but he is seized by the guards. He summons the Firebird, who throws all the inhabitants into a frantic dance and when they sink exhausted to the ground lulls them to sleep.
Ivan then gets hold of the magic egg in which the life of Kashchez is contained, smashes it, and the monster dies. All the captives are released and join in a joyous dance.
The Prince and Princess stand triumphant, surrounded by their court.

WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE *

Appeal on behalf of the Royal National Life-boat Institution, by Coxwain Henry BIogg , G.C., B.E.M.
Among the many brave men who are coxswains of Britain's life-boats none has had a more notable record than that of Coxwain Henry Blogg. He joined the crew of the Cromer life-boat 48 years ago and has been its coxwain for the last 32 years. Three times he has won the Gold Medal for gallantry of the Royal National Life-boat Institution: he has won its silver medal four times. In addition he holds the George' Cross and the British Empire Medal.
In the best of times the work of the life-boats is hazardous, in wartime trebly so. Since this war started the life-boat service has rescued 4,627 people, and is saving two lives for every one that it saved in the last war.

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.
