'Rugby Football: The New Rules'
A. F. HAMILTON-SMYTHE
This evening A. F. Hamilton-Smythe is to explain the new rules of Rugby football, and who can know the game better than a player who has broken most of the bones in his body in its cause ? „
Hamilton-Smythe is a member of Blackheath and a Cambridge Double Blue (Rugger and Boxing). He has played first-class and junior Club Rugger in the four home countries, and in France, Germany, and the Argentine.
Six years ago when he was in Budapest in the Legation, the Hungarian Minister of Physical Culture and Hygiene called on him with a convoy of Counts and Barons. They placed the local regiment of Guards at his disposal and asked him to start Rugger. But as there was three feet of snow on the ground, and the Rugger Season would only have been one of three months, the idea petered out.
As a fly-half and centre three-quarter he was always erratic, and holds some unorthodox views on tactics and play.
His talk this evening on the new rules will be both informative and to the point. He summarises them as follows: 1. Front row of the scrummage ; 2. The ball into the scrum ; 3. Scrummaging; 4. Leaving the field; 5. Goal or no goal ; 6. Other points, such as free kicks and penalties, and spectators behind th; goal line.

Here is a programme of popular favourites. Elisabeth Welch , of Nymph Errant and ' Soft Lights and Sweet Music ' fame, is to give a selection of her songs. She is featured in ' People You Hear ' on page 762.
Twenty years ago Julian Rose arrived in Philadelphia and walked past the City Hall because the tram fare was thirteen cents and he had not got it to spare. To-day he is known to millions of listeners and his Hebrew impersonations are famous in four continents.
Billy Reid is one of the big names in the accordion world. He has sold over 100,000 records.
There is probably no more polished act than that of Elsie and Doris Waters. Both play the piano. Elsie also plays the violin. Doris sings and tells stories. They write their own material and are still unshingled.
Max and Harry Nesbitt , the ukulele stars, are touring Great Britain and coming down from Scotland especially to broadcast 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, 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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
