: Mr. FITZWATER WRAY (' KUKLOS ') : 'Is Cycling Dead ? ' S.B. from Newcastle

'IS cycling dead ? ' This question, raised periodically in the newspapers, and the subject of Mr. Fitzwater Wray 's talk at 7.30, would almost seem to be answered beforehand by Major Watling's short talk at 7.25. The Cycle and Motor-Cycle Show at Olympia is a convincing demonstration of how large a section of the public still prefers to transport itself not on four wheels, but on two, and of that section a very considerable proportion, scorning the petrol engine's artful aid, resorts for propulsion to two pedals and two legs, in the healthful, old-fashioned way.

: A LIGHT ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

BERTHA ARMSTRONG (Soprano)
JOHN TURNER (Tenor) .
THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOHN ANSELL
THE legend of the Flying Dutchman tells of a captain who, trying to round the Cape of Good Hope in a storm, swore that he would do it if he had to sail on for ever. The Devil overheard, took him at his word, and sent him a-sailing for Eternity, or until he should find a woman who would love him to the death.
The Overture is among the finest pieces of storm music in existence. It owes much of its vividness to Wagner's impressions of a stormy voyage made, from Riga to London, the year before he wrote it.

9.0 WEATHER FORECAST, SECOND GENERAL NEWS BULLETIN

9.15 Mr. S. K. RATCLIFFE: How America goes to the Polls'
IN the last of his series of talks from Daventry last Tuesday at 8.0, Mr. Ratcliffe dealt generally with the American Presidential Election. Tonight he will describe the actual procedure by which, next Tuesday, 35,000,000 free and independent citizens of the United States will decide whether Herbert Hoover or Al Smith shall be the next occupant of the White House. As American elections are conducted in a method, and in a spirit, very different to our own, and as the clash of policies and personalities is as complete in this contest as it has ever been, this should be a particularly interesting talk.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
