: Mr. R. FLETCHER, President of the National Homing Union : ' Homing Pigeons '

THE season for pigpon-racing, claimed by its devotees to be the most fascinating sport in the world, is now opening. Pigeon fanciers will not need to be told that Mr. Fletcher is President of the National Homing Union, but even those with no previous knowledgo of the topic would be well advised to listen to his talk this evening. and see whether there may not be a pigeon ' fan ' locked up in their own breasts unaware.

: THE SONGS OF HUGO WOLF-

Sung by ROGER CLAYSON (Tenor)
Italian Songs :
Auch kleine Dinge (E'en little things)
Gesegnet sci. durch den die Welt entstund (Give praise to Him through Whom the world arose) Nun lass uns Frieden schliessen (Now let ua be friends)
Ihr jungen Leute (You young fellows)
Ein Standchen Euch zu bringen (A serenade to bring you)
Gesegnet sei das Grün {Blessed bo Green)
Ich hab' in Penna (I have in Penna a lover true)
E'EN little things may give us pleasure' is the thought of the first song, which reminds us how we often prize most highly tiny things--the pearl. the olive, the rosebud.
The second song is an ascription of praise to
God, Who created all things in beauty.
Now let us be friends is a magnanimous plea for reconciliation between true lovers. The great ones of the earth can make peace ; surely loving hearts can achieve as much ?
You young fellows is the anxious plea of a girl to the men who are going with her lover to the war. With her appeal to bring him safely back she mingles homely care about his health.
A serenade to bring you is the song of a lover who apparently cannot address his ladv directly, but has to state his feelings through a third party-her father. His sentiments are much the usual ones of all lovers, and a touch of exaggeration is not lacking-though the day has but twenty-four hours, he declares, he misses her foi twenty-five.
The next song sings the praises of green because it is Nature's dress, and also the colour worn by the beloved one.
The last song is a catalogue of lovers, rather reminiscent, on a smaller scale, of Don Juan 's. Here seven are sevorally listed, then four in La Fratta are lumped together, and finally a bunch of ten in Castiglione is thrown in as make-weight.

: Major NORMAN LORING, Yachting on a Small Purse'

YACHTING is usually thought of as being a rich man's game ; and so it is if you want to race a schooner or lift the America Cup. But it can be done very pleasurably and comparatively cheaply if you forgo racing and are content, for instance, to cruise in a ten-tonner on the Broads. It is of this aspect of the matter that Major Loring will talk.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
