: 'How I Keep House'

By the Wife of a Police Constable in Reigate
Today it is the turn of a police-constable's wife in a Surrey town to tell listeners how she keeps house, and they will find that she is a thoroughly businesslike woman. She makes her housekeeping allowance go a long way, but would be the first to admit that she has advantages. Her husband, for instance, was a marine engineer before he joined the police and he is thus able to do jobs in the house which would mean spending money in most homes. Again, she herself was employed as a dressmaker before her marriage, and so is able to make clothes for herself and her two children.
But she runs her home most ably on f2 5s. od. a week, pays for everything except rent and rates, and saves something for herself and her children, as she feels a woman is entitled to the security of a sum of money behind her. She will tell listeners how she manages, describing her day and her difficulties, not the least of which is that she seldom knows with any certainty when her husband will be returning for his meals.

: To Unemployed Clubs

'Your Club Activities'
A. C. RICHMOND
These Tuesday talks will deal mainly with club activities. They will cover such subjects as communal allotments, club finances, with perhaps a talk on how to start a drama group, or one giving hints on how to keep fit. A sharing of ideas is always good, and from time to time club leaders from various parts of the country will describe what they are doing in their club. There will also be-every now and again-discussions on any current legislation that particularly touches the interests of the unemployed.
These talks will be introduced this morning by Mr. A. C. Richmond, Deputy Secretary to the National Council of Social Service. Few people have as wide a knowledge as Mr. Richmond of club affairs, and of the possibilities of extending club activities.

The Foundations of English Music
Under the direction of Sir RICHARD RUNCIMAN TERRY
Late Tudor Church Music, sung by The WIRELESS SINGERS
' One would like to call this week's programme " The zenith of Tudor Church Music ", as it concludes with Byrd's magnificent Mass for five voices which has been described as an epoch-making work, to be ranked in importance (i.e., as a landmark) with The Matthew Passion, " The Ninth Symphony " and the Nibehmgen Ring.
' Byrd's five-part Mass sums up the Tudor polyphonic period just as Patestrina's Missa Papee Marcelli sums up the Italian. Great men (writing great music) followed both Byrd and Palestrina, but the two works I have mentioned stiU stand as high-water mark in their respective epochs.
' Tye's Euge bone falls very little short of that high-water mark. If it lacks the grave sweetness of Tallis's Sine nomine, it makes up in the brilliancy of its part-writing and the broad and spacious lines on which it is conceived.
' The title " zenith " is precluded by the inclusion in the week's programmes of several works of a more or less tentative character-I mean the motets of Wilbye and others. Here we have attempts at an independent instrumental accompaniment allied with a perfect vocal technique.
' Later in this series a week will be devoted to English Church music. But the present examples are included as they are contemporaneous with most of the Latin music that is being performed.' R. R. T.

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.
