DOROTHY D'ORSAY (Soprano) WILLIAM HESELTINE (Tenor)
THE Association football season is now well under way ; form is beginning to get settled, reputations are being made, unmade and confirmed, and the Championship table is taking shape. Today the radio football season opens, and the commentator's hut, which last winter became so familiar a sight on grounds all over the country, is to make its reappearance at White Hart Lane , and the full-throated cheering of the 'Spurs' supporters (not without its competition from those enthusiasts whom the charabancs have brought down from Everton) will fill the microphone once again. The sporting broadcasts have become a regular and a favourite feature of the programmes, and this year they will be planned on a bolder and more extensive scale.

A Special Programme by Children, including Part-Songs by the Bletchley Children's Railway Temperance Union Choir; Selections by Ethel Loder's Children's Orchestra ; ' How the Jellyfish lost his Bones '-an old Japanese Story translated into English by A. H. Chamberlain.

: DR. SALEEBY: Health in Autumn '

AUTUMN is notoriously a dangerous season from the point of view of health. Cold evenings, days that start as summer and end as winter, and November fogs combine to undermine the constitutions of all but the strongest, and make one start the winter with a cold that one never properly shakes off. Dr. Saleeby's talk tonight will be devoted to giving some general principles and some particular hints to those who are anxious to preserve their health unimpaired throughout these gloomy months.

Davies broadcast in the summer, on his return from Le Mans, where, in co-operation with another racing motorist, ho had just won the Grand Prix of Endurance in a Bentley car. Mr. Davies, who is on the staff of The Autocar, knows all there is to know about motor-racing, and in this broadcast he will describe the last of the series of five great races, upon the result of which the European championship depends.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
