: AN ORGAN RECITAL

by HAROLD E. DARKE
Rolaved from St. Michael's,
Cornhill

: LONDON v. NEW SOUTH WALES

A Running Commentary on the second half of the Rugby Football Match, relayed from
Twickenham
Commentator, Capt. H. B. T. WAKELAM
A LL through the season the tourists from New
South Wales have proved an unrivalled attraction wherever they went, and this match-an ideal fixture for Boxing Day-will excite particular interest. The two sides met at Twickenham two months ago, and. on that occasion the Waratahs had a very close shave. Their record since, despite their defeat by Pontypool, hardly suggests that they can be beaten even by the best of scratch sides. The outside chance, however, of seeing them go down to the brilliant combination, that London can put into the field will certainly draw vast crowds to Twickenham this afternoon.

SECOND GENERAL NEWS BULLETIN
9.15 MR. JOHN CLENNELL : ' The A.B.C. of Faces'
T ISTENERS to Mr. Clennell's talk are advised to have a mirror handy-unless they prefer to listen in pairs and study each other's faces in the light of what he says. A reader of faces for thirty years, and the author of the ' Fortunes of Faces ' film, he will in this talk expound the rudiments of the art of deducing character from the face. This is an art which can be useful to people in every walk of life. To be ' a good judge of character ' is always a splendid asset. Tho face is a sure index of the spirit and thoughts of the man or woman behind it. There will be much of interest in this talk of Mr. Clennell.

: PANTOMIMICRY

A Stock-Pot of Stock Plots
MOST pantomimes have no plot. Pantomimiery ' has six, an allowance which it is hoped will prove adequate, but they will not be allowed to interfere with the Dame's gags. nor with the sentiment in the songs ' plugged' by the vocal-principals. During the shipwreck scene, the splashing of real water may be broadcast, and indeed it is earnestly hoped that the whole affair will go with a splash. Animal lovers will, no doubt, be relieved to hear that the pistol fired at the wolf in Scene 2 will not be a real pistol. Most of the songs ' featured ' in this entertainment are guaranteed to be out of date, but perhaps for that very reason they will seem to come up pleasantly fresh. There is virtue a-plenty in the old songs-more especi. ally if they recall our pantomimes of years ago. Unfortunately, some of these songs may be not only out of date but also out of print.








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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
