IT is claimed for Joy Riding-taking people up for short flights at so much a head-that ft is the enly form of propaganda for aviation that is carried on as a commercial proposition without a subsidy. Mr. Holmes, who was a flying mun before the War, and served in the R.N.A.S. during it, has been running a company that gives joy-rides and aviation tours since 1921, and in that time has carried over a quarter of a million passengers without mishap. He believes that all these people have been given a conception of flying as a safe and pleasant business, and as the coming mode of quick travel, that they would probably not have got in any other way.
THE PHILHARMONIC Trio
ALBERT FRANSELLA (Fluty)

F. TICCIATI (Pianoforte)
THE Concerto from which we are to hear two
Movements is the second of two written in 1778. It was composed, so the biographer Jahn tells us, for a gentleman described by Mozart as ' the true philanthropist, the Indian Dutchman.'
The sweet melodiousness of the Slow Movement is its chief characteristic, and in the Finale gay carelessness and cool charm go hand in hand.
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
