A description of the North v. South match at Sheffield, broadcast from the ground by Mr. P. F. Warner
S.B. from Sheffield
Although we have no Australians to keep English cricket up to concert pitch this year, and the New Zealanders are playing no Test Matches, there is plenty of international rivalry to come in the near future. An English team is to tour South Africa this winter, and the West Indies will visit England next year. There is, therefore, a very practical reason for the three Test Trials fixed for this summer (of which this is the first), as well as the invariable appeal of representative matches, and the value to younger cricketers of experience in company of such class.
This match is to be described by Mr. P. F. Warner, who did the Middlesex match with Nottinghamshire at Lord's on June 1. No cricketer now living has a greater playing record as a captain and batsman than Mr. Warner, and since his recent retirement from first-class cricket he has become famous as a writer on the game.

: Major Hugh Pollard: The Ashburton Shield

The Ashburton Shield at Bisley is to public-school marksmen what the Davis Cup is to lawn-tennis players, or the Grand at Henley to rowing men. To contest for it is an honour, to win it the supreme triumph. Major Pollard, who will talk about this year's contest, is a noted authority on firearms of all kinds, on which he has written many books.

: Writers of Today : Mr. E. V. KNox

NOBODY who has any acquaintance with contemporary humorists needs to be told anything about 'Evoe,' whose signature at the foot of an article brightens the eyes of even the most blase reader of Punch, and the sight of whose books on the stand makes even the most avid thriller - fiend waver in his devotion to crime. All one can say is, if there ate any listeners who have so far staggered through life without the solace of' Evoe,' hero is their chance to get straight. '

: A Russian Party

Relayed from Chiswick
LONDON, like every other European capital, is full of Russians, exiled voluntarily or otherwise, who hold entertainments, marked by all the national characteristics, in each other's houses. Tonight's party is taking place in the beautiful little eighteenth-century cottage in Chiswick Mall that is now the home of Vladimir Pelunin , for so long scene-painter to the Diaghilev ballet, whose designs are known wherever anyone takes an interest in the art of the stage. He himself is organizing the party, in which his wife, his sons, and his daughter will be present and sing. His guests - who will probably number about sixty - will include Mme. Edezi (Princess Galitzin Zinoviev) and Mme. Marie Rabinek, who are the chief singers, and many others well known in the Russian colony in London as writers, painters, and artists of all kinds.
There will also be present two English guests, Mr. A.P. Herbert, the humorous writer and parodist, and Mr. L. de G. Sieveking. Their function will be to convey to listeners what is being done and who is doing it. It will probably be a very necessary function, for the party will have worked up to quite a high pitch when the microphone enters it at 9.55.

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.
