: Miss ANN SPICE: ' A Bookshelf of Old Favourites — VII, Christmas Carols'

EVEN before the days of Christmas Numbers, the ' festive season ' always appealed particularly to the writers. Dickens's ' Christmas Carol ' is the most famous example, and Scrooge will always remain the typical instance of the workings of the Christmas spirit; but there are plenty of others, which Miss Spice will recall this afternoon.

: THE CHILDREN'S HOUR

: A Play entitled
Fat King Melon ' (.4. P. Herbert)

: Dr. STORR-BEST: Wireless Education in America.' S.B. from Sheffield

BROADCASTING in America has always a particular interest for us, if only because of the difficulty of deciding between the conflicting accounts of its merits and demerits as compared with our own system. Last year Dr. Storr-Best gave a talk on his observation of educational broadcasting in the United States, in the course of a visit he had just made. He has now returned from a second visit, and this evening he will give his impressions of the direction in which things have boon moving in the meantime. it

: Mr. G. P. EARLE: 'Nativity and Miracle Plays '

EVERY Christmas sees a revival of interest in the old plays-many of them very beautiful and dramatically effective-in which our ancestors depicted the great ' miracles ' of Bible history and the lives of the Saints. In this talk Mr. Earle will deal particularly with Nativity plays.

: ' BETHLEHEM'

A Nativity Play in Three Scenes
By BERNARD WALKE
Relayed from St. HILARY'S CHURCH, MARAZION,
CORNWALL
S.B. from Plymouth
ONE of the most notable of the Christmas broadcasts last year was the relaying of the annual Nativity play from the little church of St. Hilary at Marazion, in the extreme West of Cornwall. The technical difficulties to be surmounted were considerable, but they were conquered, and all the impressive simplicity of this unaffected rustic miracle play was transmitted to listeners who had never had such an experience before. There is every reason to believe that this broadcast will at least not be inferior to last year's.

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.
