: Somewhere Abroad

We shall take you on a tour of some of the countries abroad, and - weather permitting-hope to give you some idea of what takes place in those lands on "All Fools' Day." We should warn listeners that there may be some slight hitches at first, owing to "depressions, anticyclones, and ridges of low pressure," but with the kind assistance of : Mary Ferrier (Soprano), Lewis Cowie (Baritone) and The Station Orchestra, we shall bridge the gaps.
At 9.30 we shall broadcast :
"A Mock Trial."
Presented by The Station Staff.
Imagine yourselves in a sitting-room in a house in a town which shall be nameless. A man, whom we shall call "Mr. X," is sitting in an expectant attitude in front of a home-made wireless set. Phones are on his head, and he is engaged in turning a variety of small and large knobs with both hands. A complacent smile is on his face, and from time to time he turns excitedly to a couple of friends who are sitting near him, also listening intently. The friends consist of a lady and gentleman, Mr. and Mrs. Fandango, who have been invited by Mr. X to hear what he can do in the way of "reaching out," and getting distant Stations, while the local Station, which we shall not name, is ON. They are comfortably settled down to "make a night of it."


Soprano: Mary Ferrier
Baritone: Lewis Cowie

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.
