: Mr.' NEVILLE SHARP:' Gorillas '

OF all the wild animals that enchanted our youthful 'imagination, the gorilla is the most impressive ; and rightly so, for he is both monstrous and mysterious. His ferocity and his elusiveness make him harder to study than almost any other beast. During the past eighteen months Mr. Neville Sharp found himself, as an official of the Government of Nigeria, posted'to a portion of the mandated territory of the Cameroons, where he was frequently without a white man to talk to for weeks at a time. Happily, he found a hobby ready to hand in the gorilla, of whose habits he made a detailed and adventurous study, one by-product of which is a collection of skulls which is perhaps unique in Europe.

Rugby Match by Mr. O. L. OWEN.

THE Waratahs have so far amply confirmed, in their International matches, the verdict passed on them by competent judges at the outset of .their triumphant tour. This afternoon they have met their third great test, and whether Scotland have met the same fate as Ireland and Wales, or whether they have at last turned the tables on the tourists, every Rugby enthusiast North and South of the Tweed will be eager to hear Mr. Owen's review of one of the most interesting matches of the year.

: GERTRUDE LAWRENCE

in 'THE KIDDIES' HOUR'
Six New Kiddies' Songs by EILEEN DE MANCHA and H. C. G. STEVENS (at the Piano)
THE chief event of the theatrical season of 1927, so far as the lighter side of the drama is concerned, has been the return of Gertrude Lawrence , after a highly successful stay in New York. She has been drawing crowds to His Majesty's Theatre, from which, it will be remembered, parts of Oh, Kay ! were broadcast last week, and London has confirmed the verdict of New York that her talent and personality are greater than ever before. Those who recall her brilliant acting, with Beatrice Lillie, in the ' Fallen Babies ' sketch in a bygone Chariot revue, will have the keenest anticipations of her performance to-day.

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.
