12-' Indian Summer'
With Franklyn Bellamy , Donald Gray Stanley Groome Joan Hart Preston Lockwood. Hugh Manning. Ella Milne. Elsa Palmer , and Ronald Sidney
Produced by Peter Watts
All has toppled, it seems, in Esmond's great design. He has succeeded in bringing James Stuart to England in readiness for his dramatic proclamation as James III the moment that Queen Anne should die. He has succeeded beyond his wildest hopes in holding the Pretender secretly hidden in Rachel's little house in Kensington for the moment of moments. But when the moment of moments came at last-when all was ripe for the great disclosure that the last of the Stuarts was actually in England and willing to mount the throne — James himself was not ready for it, as Henry and all his other supporters were. His Royal Highness had gone-to Castlewood,, and on the direct invitation of Beatrix. It was for her that Henry had dared aU, and it was through her, it seemed, that all was to be destroyed after all — his fatal, fatal Beatrix '

The Family Reunion

A play by T. S. Eliot
1888-1965 arranged for broadcasting by Raymond Raikes with
Fabia Drake, Barbara Couper Dilys Hamlett and Gabriel Woolf
The scene is laid in 'Wishwood,' a country house in the North. One evening in late March.
Produced by Raymond Raikes who writes:
The Family Reunion has been described as a rare manifestation of the power of language to populate the theatre of the mind: it makes an exceptional impact, therefore. as Broadcast Drama. I regard it as a privilege on this occasion that I have been given the opportunity of revising and rethinking my earlier radio interpretation of one of the finest plays by this great poet of our times. The play was recorded and broadcast in the Home Service as a tribute to the late T S Eliot.

From France
Yvonne Gouvernay Choir
Orchestre de la
Radiodiffusion Frangaise
(Leader, Rene Alix )
Conductor, Roger Desormlere
Suite No 2, in B minor, for flute and strings
Concerto in C minor, for violin, oboe, and strings
Cantata No. 106: Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit
Recorded by Radiodiffusion Franchise
Bach wrote four Suites for orchestra, though he himself called them Overtures, taking the title, of the opening movement as that of the whole Suite. No. 2 in B minor has an extended overture in the French style, consisting of a brilliant Allegro preceded and followed by a slow section. The succeeding movements comprise a Rondo, a Sarabande, two Bourrees, a Polonaise, a Minuet and Badinerie.
The Concerto in C minor is usually played on two claviers with string orchestra, but according to the German musicologist Max Seiffert , it was originally designed for violin, oboe, and strings.
Cantata No. 106, ' God's time is the best time,' was composed at Weimar and is a funeral cantata, though it is not known for whose death it was written. In Parry's words, it is ' one of the earliest of Bach's works of this kind which has taken a very deep hold on the affections of musicians.'

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.
