: Miss EVA CHRISTY: How It's Done-How to Ride a Horse '

RIDING and horsemanship are not easy accomplishments, but they give a unique pleasure to those who have once acquired them -a dwindling number in this mechanical age. Miss Eva Christy is an expert on all matters pertaining to the horse; she was the first woman to take up the teaching of riding as a profession, and to train teachers for that profession, and she was the only woman to be appointed military instructor in riding during the war. Tonight she will describe the various seats-civil and military, side-saddle and cross, and so on.

: Mr. B. H. DAVIES: The Grand Tour on a small car '

IN the eighteenth century the education of a young man of the ruling classes was considered incomplete until he had made the Grand Tour. France, Switzerland, Italy-possibly Austria and Germany-he would traverse and he would return home a travelled man of the world. Railway travel killed the Grand Tour, but motoring has revived it. The owner of a small car can do today what the young gentleman of the eighteenth century did, at a mere fraction of the cost and in a tenth of the time. Mr. Davies did it, and in tonight's talk he will describe how.


A Sketch in One Act by ROLAND PERTWEE
Characters :
THE scene represents the gallery, or cheap part, of a small provincial theatre or hall.
It has a centre aisle.
In front are a couple of benches covered with red upholstery-denoting a higher-priced seat.
We hear a small party of people taking their tickets outside, and shortly afterwards they come in and hurry, breathlessly, down the centre aisle. They are led by Maud, who holds Milly by the hand. Maud is a young woman of twenty-six years of age. Being the wife of a Londonep, and dwelling in that city, she takes command of her younger sisters, who live in less intellectual surroundings.
Milly, the youngest of the party, is only ten. It is her first visit to a place of entertainment, and she is a trifle bewildered.
Bringing up the rear are Nell and Sue-two flappers in gay-coloured cotton dresses.
Auntie is a woman of uncertain age. She is inclined to stoutness, breathlessness, and perspiration.

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.
