OUR PROGRAMME, by Mr. and Mrs.
G. K. CHESTERTON

: Mr. W. BRANCH JOHNSON : ' Santa Claus Day '

STRICTLY speaking, St.Nicholas has no genuine connection with Christmas time. His own feait, which rivalled. Christmas in the revelry with which it was celebrated, and is still, in some countries, one of the most important festivals of the year, is much earlier in the month, and it is only recently that Saint Nicholas has become the Santa Claus of English murseries, and the whole cerom onial of giving presents been attached to Christmas itself. How the change came Mr. Branch Johnson , an author well versed in folklore and popular hagiology, will explain in this evening's talk.

: Carols

From Whitcchapel
VERY early in the short history of broadcasting the Rev.
John Mayo was one of the very first clergymen to take a sympathetic interest in the new medium, and he broadcast an address from the Studio the first Christmas that the B.B.C saw—in 1922. The carols relaved from his church i:i Whitechapel have been among tho most successful of Christmas broadcasts, and listeners will be glad to hear them again this year.

: ' The Confessions of Charles Linkworth '

a. Ghost Story by E. F. BENSON, specially adapted for broadcasting and read by tho Author
CONNOISSEURS of ghost stories are a fastidious breed, and only the subtlest forms of horror pass their tests. Mr. E. F. Benson's book, ' The Room in tho Tower,' is in all these collections, and one of the most highly-prized volumes there. It is now, unhappily, out of print, and there is all the more reason to welcome the author's reading of one of the stories from it, in a special adaptation that he has made for broadcasting, tonight. Those who are not connoisseurs of ghost stories, and who are not too sure of their nerves, had better not listen tonight.

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.
