: Miss Arnot Robertson: 'Holidays for the Stay-at-Homes'

IT is more and more becoming the habit of the hard pressed and ' ' hard-up ' worker under the conditions of modern civilization, to take his holiday in his own home. This evening Miss Arnot Robertson is giving us a few hints as to how best to achieve relaxation, and a proper enjoyment of our leisure, if we are compelled to stay at home, rather than fly, more or less rashly, to the delights of foreign shores or English fields.

: Mr. NORMAN ANGELL: ' The Newspaper-Public Opinion '

A S one of the few true prophets of the con-A sequences of a European War, the author of ' The Great Illusion' deserves well of his countrymen and of the world in general. Mr.
Angell wrote the book which made his reputation several years before the Great War. He has had the melancholy satisfaction of seeing many of his prophecies come true. Few publicists can be more worth hearing than Mr. Angell, with his penetrating judgment and agreeable powers of expression.

: A Song Recital

by MARIAN ANDERSON (Contralto)
IN the old slave days in America the thoughts of the Negro-often turned, for consolation, to his hopes of joy in a better world. The fervour and happy confidence of as imple -minded people is shown in the' spirituals' we are to hear. Of this feeling Deep River is typical :—
' Deep river, my home is over
Jordan,
Deep river, Lord, I want to cross over into camp-ground.
Oh, chillun, oh, don't you want to go to that gospel feast,
That promised land, that land where all is peace ?
Walk into Heaven and take my seat,
And cast my crown at Jesus' feet.'

: 'The Crossing'

A Play for 'Broadcasting by HOLT MARVELL and CYRIL LISTER
One Day we shall ifind ourselves,
Suddenly,
Each one of us,
Travelling in a manner we are unprepared for
To a Continent no living man Has ever visited.
But since the summons Is so imperative
And our arrival is expected,
We shall not, perhaps, be called upon To undertake this formidable journey Unattended.
Characters :
The Continental boat train is due to leave the Southern Terminus in a few minutes.
The platform is like a stage where passengers, porters, newsboys, guards and inspectors are playing their cheerful, bustling parts in the diurnal tragi-comedy of departure.








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.
