: My Programme

By PHIL SCOTT (The Heavy-weight Boxer)
PHIL SCOTT, who has chosen and arranged the fifth of this special series of programmes, is the most popular and promising heavy-weight champion Britain has had since Georges Carpentier first cast British heavy-weight boxing into a decline by his sensational victories over Bombardier Wells in 1913. The present champion, who won his title only last March by a speedy victory over Frank Goddard at the Albert Hall, is an ex-fireman, and has only been in the game as a whole-timer for a very short time.
Whether or not he is destined to be a world-beater, Phil Scott is a worthy figure to stand at the head of the British boxing profession, and the ideas on broadcasting of so excellent and representative a sportsman are sure to interest everybody who cares for the noble art and one of our oldest native sports.

THIRD WEEK-VARIOUS SONGS, interpreted by FRANKLYN KELSEY
Trauer der Liebe (Love's Grief)
Des Sangers Habe (The Singer's Gift) An den Tod (To Death)
Verklärung (Transfiguration)
Freiwilliges Versinken (Willing Sacrifice) Geistliches Lied (Sacred Song)
LOVE'S GRIEF is a simple, melodious lyric of three similar verses.
The Singer's Gift is one of those Schubertian character-songs of which wo have had many splendid examples during the week. ' Shatter my fortunes, take from me everything that I have. But leave me my Zither ; then am I happy and rich.' The music is fiery and exultant.
In Willing Sacrifice, after a preliminary ques
-tioning, it is the Sun who speaks, as ho descends
(versenkt) into the sea, to illumine other lands.
. ' I nothing take ; my only care is giving.'

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
