Organist and Director of the Choir.
Guildford Cathedral .
Relayed from St. Mary-Ie-Bow Church

: Miss VIOLET METHLEY: Hyde Park '

HYDE PARK as we know it-a well-laid-out and quite tolerably policed preserve where
Cockneys play. Society parades and enthusiasts preach-is quite a modern institution. Comparatively recently the Park was on the fringe of London, and, naturally, no safer than the roads surrounding it; whilstitwas a great resort for duelists, and the famous duel in which Lord Mohun killed the Marquis of Hamilton, which readers of Thackeray particularly will remember, was fought there. Miss Methley will tell some of the history of the Park in those wilder days.

: Major L. R. TOSSWILL: 'The New South Wales Tour ' (S.B. from Plymouth)

RUGBY football flourishes exceedingly in the Dominions, and the visits here of the South
Africans and the New Zealanders have left very memorable pages in Rugby history. The Waratahs, as the team from New South Wales call themselves, bid fair to be nearly as notable a team. They include, also, two of the most popular personalities in post-war football-A. C. Wallace , their skipper, who was one of the famous Oxford three-quarter line that made Scotland such a force a few years ago, and A. T. Lawton , also of Oxford, as brilliant a standoff half as ever wore the Dark Blue. Major Tosswill will discuss the prospects for the tour.

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.
