By Thomas Armstrong, Organist and Director of the Choir, St. Peter's, Eaton Square
Relayed from St. Mary-le-Bow Church
Introduction and Allegro in F


Organist: Thomas Armstrong


: An ' Eleanor Farjeon ' Day. The programme will include selections frcm 'Nursery Rhymes of London Town,' sung by Eva Neale. ' Jacob's Ladder,' another ' Anthony ' story especially written fcr the Children's Hour. Selections from 'Joan's Door,' ' Nuts and May,' r.nd ether sources
SOME six months ago the Children's Hour was fortunate in enrolling Miss Farjeon as a regular contributor of stories, and since then there have been included in the programmes not only several tales selected from her books, but others written specially for the purpose. Many of her delightful poems have been broadcast. The idea of a short programme on the lines of ' Eleanor Farjeon in Verse, Song, and Story ' seemed a good one—and so here it is.

A One-Act Play by H. E. HOLME
Characters :
THE Master-at-Arms' Mess on board H.M.S. Ambitious is a plain interior, entered by two curtained doors. In the centre is a fairly large table, covered with a white cloth and partially laid for tea. At the side of the table is a long stool, at the end is a chair. There is a small locked cupboard on the wall, with shelves above containing crockery and other articles. Against tho wall is a small writing-desk with a chair in front of it.
It is about 4.30 on a winter's afternoon. James Carter is standing by tho table and throws a piece of broken crockery through one of the doors, narrowly missing Henry Brown who is just coming in and manages to dodgo the missile.

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.
