: 'The Songs that came out Wrong,' a Cycle of Nonsense Songs from ' Alice in Wonderland,' sung by the Wireless Chorus, under the direction of Stanford Robinson, followed by : An appropriately whimsical story. ' The Elephant and the Dentist ' (Ada Leonora Harris), with a return to reason in : 'How Tom started Stamp-Collecting' (W. H. Wosencroft)
THE writing of sensible nonsense is one of the most difficult things in the world, and probably there has never been a greater master of the art than Lewis Carroll. Today there are to be several of the songs from ' Alice in Wonderland.' as set to music by Liza Lehmann. Those who like good music and those who like good nonsense should both be pleased.
A month ago there was broadcast a Dialogue-
Talk on Stamps. It was so popular that today we are to have another chat on the same subject. Mr. W. H. Wosencroft , who has prepared the matter, is an authority on stamp-collecting and knows his subject thoroughly. The talk will be of practical interest, so all young stamp collectors should be on the alert for some good ' tips.' ,


Unknown: Lewis Carroll.
Music By: Liza Lehmann.
Unknown: Mr. W. H. Wosencroft

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.
