Conducted by Mr. ERN SHAW.
An interesting competition has been arranged this evening for the many Hull listeners who wish that they could draw. In addition it gives them an opportunity to help a most .deserving cause-the ' Christmas Dinner to the Bairns' Fund.
Mr. Ern Shaw , the popular Cartoonist, will broadcast simple instructions which, carried out on a specialty prepared chart, will result in a humorous drawing appearing on the squared design. Competitors of all ages are invited-to send in their efforts, and the neatest of these, with the most ingenious 'last lines' to a Limerick accompanying the subject, will win handsome prizes, presented through the kindness of the Editor of the Hull Evening News.
All entries must be accompanied by a Postal Order for 6d. The whole of the proceeds will be handed over to the fund.


Conducted By: Mr. Ern Shaw.

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.

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.
