: Sports Talk ' The Navy at Play' Lt. Commander R. WOODROOFE

We are all familiar with regattas on the river or at our favourite seaside places, with the streets hung with bunting and illuminations at night, but a kind of regatta quite new to most of us will be described this evening by Lieut. Commander Woodroofe in a talk as vivid and colourful as his ' Cricket in the Seven Seas ', which he gave last June.
Every British Fleet, wherever it may find itself, whether at Scapa Flow or off some Greek island or in some gruelling bay in Ceylon, holds its annual regatta. Training has gone on for weeks; excitement mounts up to the day when the fleet anchors at the appointed spot, and the ships form a line for the boats to come down.
Two days of fun and rivalry; twenty-two races-seamen, boys, stokers, cooks, bandsmen compete amidst shouts and cheers. The ship gaining the most marks wins the ' cock' and serenades the losers in the evening.
But everything to do with the Navy at play comes into this talk, from the helter-skelter round the decks with the band playing, and cross-country races over the strangest courses imaginable to the most delightful picture of all- when the ship's engines stop in mid-ocean and lifeboats are lowered and every man not on duty splashes into the water for a quarter of an hour's bathe.

: In Town Tonight

A Topical Supplement to the Week's
Programmes
This evening starts the autumn series of probably the most popular speciality broadcast ever given by the B.B.C. It scored a hit from its inception in November last year and ran on until June.
Its element of surprise and introduction to listeners of those with unusual and colourful callings seem two of the chief reasons for its outstanding success. Two of the most I popular figures to come to the micro- .phone were the coloured tipster Ras Prince Monolulu with his slogan, ' I gottan 'orse ', and the gypsy Petulengro. So many letters asking to hear them again were received that an exception was made, and both were also included at Radiolympia.
The autumn series will be run on the same lines-six or seven items each week, a percentage of people in unusual callings, and one outside broadcast if anything interesting suggests itself. The producer spends his time looking out for something likely, and thinking of ' In Town Tonight' he scans his fellow travellers in bus and train and tube.

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.

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.
