2 — 'Residents '
John Betieman
People living in seaside resorts are often grateful for the prosperity which is brought to them by the influx of summer visitors. Just as often, however, they complain that the local authorities devote too much money and interest to catering for these visitors, disregarding the ordinary residents. The promenade, they sometimes claim, is used as an expensive shop window, whilst other parts of the town are deficient in lighting and the ordinary amenities. It is such questions as these, particularly in connection with the resorts of the West Country, that John Betjeman is going to discuss this morning.

: CRICKET

The Australians v. Worcestershire
A commentary during the first match of the Australian tour by Howard Marshall from Worcester County Cricket
Ground
Cricket begins, and in an hour or two's time football will be all but over. Fans of the willow will be glad to know that Howard Marshall , who is giving a commentary on the Australian's pipe-opener this afternoon, will be reporting all of the Test Matches. It is interesting, too, that he is to introduce the innovation in the Test commentaries of bringing to the microphone from time to time not only distinguished cricketers but Tom, Dick, and Harry who happen to he in the crowd, the more readily if he can find a Tom, Dick, or Harry who is an Australian.
Howard Marshall 's descriptions of the play in this opening match of the Australian tour will be continued next Monday and Tuesday. Throughout the season there will also be regular commentaries on selected county matches, as in 1937.

: PRESTON NORTH END

v.
HUDDERSFIELD TOWN
Introduction and Summaries by Ivan Sharpe and Commentaries by George Allison (First Half)
Thomas Woodrooffe from the Empire Stadium, Wembley
(by permission of the Football
Association)
Once again listeners are to hear the whole of the Cup Final and something of the tense atmosphere in the packed Wembley stadium on this day of days. But first the community singing, when they will be able to visualise the familiar figure of T. P. Ratcliffe , of the News Chronicle, in white shirt and trousers, high up on a rostrum in the middle of the ground. No one who has been to Wembley can ever forget his art of drawing song from a crowd.
As both teams are once again from the North, it is happy idea for Ivan Sharpe to be there to say a few introductory words before the beginning of the game, and give a summing-up both in the interval and at the end of the match.

The Toast: The Royal Academy of Arts' proposed by The Rt. Hon. Winston Churchill,
C.H., M.P., and the Reply by The President,
Sir William Llewellyn , G.C.V.O. broadcast from Burlington House
There is something picturesque about the Royal Academy banquet, held in the Banqueting Hall at Burlington House, between four walls hung with pictures of the year. Famous men, and among them famous painters, will be there, and it is of supreme interest that a distinguished statesman, who is by no means undistinguished with the brush, is to propose the health of the Royal Academy of Arts. Mr. Winston Churchill is always worth hearing, and he will be in his element here. Listeners will look forward with interest to hearing the President's reply.

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.
