The Story of 'A Risky Errand ' (Harold Avory).

'The Jungfrau Staircase' - a Railway Talk by Cecil J. Allen and certain others
The Jungfrau (i.e., 'The Maiden') is the third highest peak in the Bernese Oberland
Alps which are so famous a feature of Switzerland. For a long time 'The Maiden' was considered to be unconquerable even as far back as 1577 there was a legend to that effect - and it was not until 1811 that anyone reached the summit. In the next forty years only four attempts out of many were successful. Since then, however, the mountain has been climbed often. But though the ascent on foot is fascinating to skilled mountaineers it is impossible for most people, and to overcome this difficulty a narrow-gauge railway has been constructed. It was begun in 1897 and was not completed until 1912. The Jungfrau Railway is an engineering feat of a very wonderful kind, and Mr. Cecil J. Allen (who comes fresh from it) will have an interesting story to tell.

: Mr. R. C. WASHINGTON: 'The Usa of Re

frigerating '
THE legislation which recently came into force, limiting the use of preservatives in food, has had the effect of vastly multiplying the number of refrigerators in use throughout the country. The presence of a large number of electric refrigerating plants seemed, at one time, likely to constitute a serious interference with broadcasting ; and it is the means that have been devised to counteract this danger that will form the subject of Mr. Washington's talk.

: Mr. HORACE SHEPHERD : Cinema Music (with Illustrations)

VAST as is the gulf that separates the tinkling piano of the early bioscope theatres, with its repertoire of a dozen stock tunes, from the organs and symphony orchestras of the great movie cathedrals of London and New York, much has still to be done to achieve a true unity between the film shown and the music that accompanies it. This problem is very much present in the minds of those who are trying to enhance the msthetic appeal of the movies, and some of the means proposed to solve it will be discussed by Mr. Shepherd, who wes formerly director of the New Gallery Kinema, one of London's most progressive picture houses.

: THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA

Conducted by JOHN ANSELL
PRINCE IGOR glitters with oriental colour and military splendour. It tells a story drawn from Russian history, of the struggles o a Russian Prince with a wandering tribe of eastern raiders, and of the loves of the Prince and his son.
The Overture is a brilliant prelude to this gorgeously-set-out story.

: ' A FOOL AND HIS MONEY '

- A Wayside Comedy by LAURENCE HOUSMAN
Characters :
NOT the sort of road where one wants to bo alono after dark. Above its high bank tangled with brushwood the forest trees stand thick, and their gnarled and twisted roots hava made queer burrows in the soil, where something bigger than a fox could find hiding. The light is already fading, and one does not notice at first the elderly ragamuffin who sits hunched in the bank with his legs slung over a fallen tree-trunk, smoking meditatively and rather miserably, for indeed he has an unprosperous look. A whistle of queer cadence brings him in furtive haste to his feet. He, Tim, stands listening, and to him enters in shuffling haste. limp-footed, his pat Tony, younger and less of a weakling, but almost as much of a ragamuffin as himself. In spite of their difference, they make an obvious pair, shady in character, and you would do well to avoid them.
AN American patron commissioned this work.
It is a rhapsody in dance style on matter contained in the Composer's Bamboula, a West Indian melody, one of the Twenty-four Negro Melodies he collected and transcribed for the Piano.

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.
