Commander B. T. COOTE: 'How to Keep Fit'


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
mHIS is the second talk in the new series -L intended primarily for younger listeners which was begun by Charles Buehan , the Arsenal captain, last week. He spoke on ' Sportsmanship '; this evening Commander Coote will deal with a subject equally vital in its own sphere—' How to keep fit '—a subject on which, as a famous P.T. instructor, who has himself been through the complete course in Sweden, and who was in control of P.T. instruction in the Navy dining the war, he has every qualification to speak. His talk is intended for the ordinary, nonathletic young man, who, without being in strict training for any particular sport, still wants to keep generally fit, and not, by sheer negligence of the simple rules, get flabby and soft.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
