: Mr. R. GAMBIER PARRY: ‘How to Look After your Wireless Set—II'

THE value of these simple talks to all keen listeners is obvious: if you wish to get the most out of the programmes, first of all look to your set-is it giving you its best ? Mr. Gambier-Parry will probably be better known to wireless readers as ' Diktron,' the author of ' Wireless, Step by Step.'

: Dr. CYRIL NORWOOD: The Claim of the Boys' Clubs ' (under the auspices of the National Association of Boys' Clubs)

Dr. CYRIL NORWOOD , the Headmaster of Harrow, was one of the earliest to become a Vice-President of the National Association of Boys' Clubs. His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester became President in October, 1926, when the Association was formally launched at a gathering of Club Leaders held in Chester. Since then, much has been achieved. As listeners will remember, not very long ago an appeal was made for £50,00 to establish the Movement and to endow it with an efficient and adequate administrative Headquarters. Towards this amount a sum of a little under £11,000 has been received and handed over to Trustees. One of the chief objects of the Association is to establish Local Federations of Boys' Clubs and so to consolidate and extend the whole movement, especially in areas where little is done to cater for working boys between the ages of fourteen and eighteen.
The official organ of the National Association of Boys' Clubs is ' The Boy,' which is published quarterly, price 3d., and may be obtained, together with other particulars, from the Secretary, [address removed].

: The Rev. M. R. RIDLEY: Poetry and the Ordinary Reader-I'

THE position of poetry in the scheme of broadcast programmes is now fairly established : an ever-increasing interest is being taken in the poetry readings that now occupy a regular place in broadcasting. Mr. Ridley's series of talks is an attempt both to enlarge the pleasure of those who are already keen in their enjoyment of the readings and to open the fields of poetry to yet fresh comers. Mr. Ridley, who is a Fellow and Chaplain of Balliol College, Oxford, and Tutor in English Literature, will give six weekly talks, covering such phases of the subject as the enjoyment of poetry, the sound and devices and form of poetry, and the trend of modern poetry itself.
THE greater part of Max Reger 's short life was a series of conflicts with almost every section of the musical world, and only in his last years did anything like recognition of his great gifts come to him. He was not one who cared for honours and rewards and, though in his latter years these were accorded him in generous measure, it probably meant far more to him that the best intelligences of the world of music had begun to recognize him as an immensely sincere composer.
Ho was an ardent lover of his own country, and more than once refused tempting offers of appointments away from home. He did, however, undertake concert tours from timo to time, and visited this country in 1909, taking part in two Chamber Concerts mainly devoted to his own works.
The enormous volume of music which he left includes many songs in the most varied moods.

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.
