: Mr. R. W. SKENE: 'With the Vandals in North America '

LAST SUMMER a Cambridge Vandals Rugby football and cricket team toured Canada and the United States, and this broadcast by R. W. Skene , who was a member of the team, is an account of their experiences. It was the first occasion on which an English Rugby football team had toured America, and Skene will give listeners an idea of the standard of play out there which will be all the more interesting to Rugger enthusiasts, as there is some idea of an American Rugby Team coming to England in the near future.
The Vandals played altogether nine games of football, all of which they won; and sixteen games of cricket, winning all but one, .which they lost by three runs. Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton, Buffalo, Chicago, St. Louis, Benton Harbour , Washington, New York and Philadelphia were visited, and so Skene has a pretty good idea of the standard of play covering a wide area, and should be able to sum up the abilities of a representative team. Their own XV was a good side, including one Blue, three Internationals, and several County players. Skene himself is a cricket Blue, and played for Oxford in the 'Varsity match of 1928. He was the only Oxford member of the team.

: Acts III and IV of Gounod's Opera c Faust'

Relayed from The Old Vic
Act III: Scene I: Inside a Church
Scene 2: Outside a Church
Act IV: A Prison
FAUST in love with Marguerite, has urged his suit with such ardour, aided by the demoniacal influence of Mephistopheles, that her resistance has been overcome.
In the third act, with which this broadcast begins, Marguerite, abandoned by Faust, is already suffering the penalties of her position. The first scene is the interior of a church and Marguerite, distraught, is seeking Divine consolation. Mephistopheles however, .concealed within a pillar of the church, taunts her with the impossibility of redemption after what has happened, and tortures the poor girl with sinister counsel. The scene changes to the outside of the church, and soldiers enter to the music of the famous ' Soldiers' Chorus '. This is followed by Mephistopheles singing the equally famous Serenade. It is the derisive tone of this song that causes Valentine, Marguerite's brother, who has returned with his comrades from the wars, to learn what has occurred ; he challenges the betrayer of his sister, but, through the intervention of Mephistopheles, he is slain in the encounter. -
Marguerite, who is horror-stricken at the calamity of which she is the cause, gives way to despair. Her reason becomes affected, and in a fit of frenzy, she kills her child. She is thrown into prison for this crime.
Faust, with the aid of Mephistopheles, obtains access to the cell where she is imprisoned (Act IV). They both urge her to fly, but Marguerite, in whom holier feelings have gained the ascendant, spurns their proffered assistance, and places -her reliance in repentance and prayer. This is the well-known Trio.
Overcome by sorrow and remorse, and with an earnest prayer for forgiveness on her lips, the unhappy girl expires. Mephistopheles then triumphs at the catastrophe he has been able to bring about, but a chorus of celestial voices is heard, proclaiming pardon for the repentant sinner, and the Evil Spirit, foiled and overcome, crouches suppliantly as the accents of Divine love and forgiveness are heard, while the spirit of Marguerite, borne by angels, is wafted upwards to its heavenly home. An article on the legend of Faust appears on page 77.

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.

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.
