Directed by GEORGES HAECK , from
Restaurant Frascati

: Mr. J. C. STOBART and Miss MARY SOMERVILLE, 'Stories in Poetry-VII, Now Ballads '

THE ballad, one of the oldest and most truly popular forms of English poetry, has never died. Printing only revivified it, and after the broadsheet came the literary ballad-Keats's ' Belle Dame Sana Merci ,' ' The Ancient Mariner,' ' John Gilpin ,' Kipling's ' Barrack-Room Ballads,' and the rest, of which Mr. Stobart and Miss Somerville will speak this afternoon.

: Captain L. F. Ellis: Our Interest in Good Government: I: What would happen if all government suddenly stopped?

Now that the State has grown to such enormous dimensions, the ordinary private citizen, who only comes in direct contact with the central Government at two or three points, is apt to resent paying taxes to support a Government that seems remote and meaningless to him. In this series of talks Captain Ellis, who is Secretary to the National Council of Social Service, will remind us how much we really owe to government (quite apart from the political complexion and activities of the Government actually in power).

: Professor A. V. HILL, Speed, Strength and Endurance in Sport-I, Muscles and Nerves '

ORGANIZED athletics are at least as old as Homer, but it is only recently that they have been seriously investigated from the scientific point of view. It is an absorbing study ; how much power is exerted by an athleto running the hundred' in even time, the ' economy curve ' of a runner, the absolute limit that Nature imposes on human exertion, and so on. Professor Hill is both a distinguished scientist, who won the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1922, and himself an athlete, and in the series of talks of which this is the first he will explain the physiological conditions that determine athletic success.

Tally Ho ! Spring Meet of the Fair Sex.
Bachelors-to your burrows !
From the Hunting point of view, this Meet is bound to bo a groat success. Bachelor foxes abound, butare, however, wilierthan ever. As soon as they scent the hounds, they go to earth, good and proper, and when it comes to ' digging them out,' well—dynamite is almost necessary.
Hark away ! Mistress
Peggy O'Neil leads, and there are not likely to be any stragglers at the ' KILL' -if there is one!
Brer Fox confers with his brethren, and they are unanimously determined to guard (their brushes and themselves) against all comers !
Yoicks ! Then likewise
—Tallyho '

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.
