A recent visitor to London from the U.S.A. was Miss Judith Waller , one of the few women to hold a high and responsible post on the staff of any of the large broadcasting companies in America. Miss Waller spent only a few days in London on her way back to Chicago from a school broadcasting conference on the Continent, but she spared time to record an interview for Woman's Hour about educational broadcasting in the United States and her own sphere of action in the National Broadcasting Company. Judith Waller is a well-known figure in American radio but insists that she prefers to be behind the scenes instead of behind a mike.

LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
' Piease Mr. Announcer ,' wrote a four-year-old boy one day, ' you to: got to tell us [he name of the music last Friday.1 ' My daughter,' writes a mother, * always asks what the introductory music is called,' ' He specially likes,' says another mother, ' hearing the name of the introductory music.' Names are important to children -to have named something is to have bestowed upon it an identity and to have given a child a sure hold upun it. But a piece of music, heard simpiy as music without reference to associations suggested by its title, speaks a different message to each individual hearer, and we want to give our music its chance to make this unbiassed impact on our small listeners. For that reason we cling to our practice of not announcing the titie of our opening music until the last day of the week. About this week's music, therefore, we will say no more than that it has already proved most popular with our under-fives, and we are sure many of them will quickly recognise it. Its name, if they still need it, they can hear on Friday.

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.
