: Mr. BERNARD DARWIN: An Eye-Witness Account of the Final of the Amateur Golf Championship . S.B. from Glasgow

A LTHOUGH it does not carry so proud a title as the Open Championship, whose winner can not unfairly claim to be the best golfer in the world, the Amateur Championship is, if anything, a more exciting event. Match play makes for sporting interest, and in the final that Mr. Bernard Darwin will describe today interest is centred on two protagonists instead of on some thirty-six. To golfers everywhere, this account of the final match, given by the most famous of golf correspondents, and relayed from a house (lent by a listener) actually on the course, within an hour or two, at the most, of the conclusion of play, will certainly be one of the most interesting events of the broadcast week.

: A LIGHT ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

HARDY WlLLIAMSON (Tenor)
THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA (Leader, S. KNEALE
KELLEY)
Conducted by JOHN ANSELL
MUSIC for plays first brought
Edward German into prominence. He began with Richard III in 1889, when. a couple of years after he had left the Royal Academy of Music, he had become conductor at the Globe Theatre. That music was his first - notable suceess.
Since then he has written music for dozens of stage works, much of which we recall, to our pleasure. Nell Gwyn is a play by Anthony Hope , that was produced in 1900. SAINT-SAËNS. always a devotee of the classics, which strongly influenced him on one side of his musical nature, had a happy touch in casting his music into ancient forms. The Sarabande, with its grave grace, was long the chief slow dance of the told Suite that was the forerunner of later Sonatas and Symphonies. Saint-Saens shows all his accustomed 'urbanity and clean-cut musicianship in this charming slight piece.

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.
