: BRIDGE

The Gold Cup contest, organised by the British Bridge League. A commentary during the final round, by Alan McKinnon
The Gold Cup open to Great Britain has been an annual and important event in the bridge world for the last five or six years, the winners often playing for England in the international championships.
In this year's event 111 teams competed, including teams from Scotland, and the following teams reached the semi-finals which were played off yesterday: Scotland 2,
Yorkshire 2, London 3, Sussex 2, Kent 1, Gloucestershire 1, Oxford-shire 1, Warwickshire 1, Surrey 1. and N.W. Region (Lancashire, Cheshire, Cumberland) 1.
Each team may consist of four or six players. In the final which will be broadcast today, the same hands will be played by each team. Alan Mackinnon , who is to give the commentary, has described many bridge matches on the air from Northern Ireland.

: POULTRY-KEEPING

' More eggs on less food
Alan Thompson
Alan Thompson , editor of The Feathered World, is giving a talk of the utmost importance to those backyarders who have joined in the grow-more-food movement so far as poultry is concerned. It may well be that with the inevitable curtailment of food supplies, the small man who can feed his birds to a great extent on household scraps will be in an enviable position. In the past, forty per cent. of our eggs came from abroad, and the supply has been very largely cut off. Backyarders throughout the country may well help to keep egg- production going.

: 'ON WENLOCK EDGE'

Six songs, with accompaniment, set to poems of A. E. Housman by Vaughan Williams
1 On Wenlock Edge. 2 From far, from eve and morning. 3 Is my team ploughing ? 4 Oh when I was in love with you. 5 Bredon Hill. 6 Clun sung by Edward Reach (tenor) with Jean Pougnet (violin), David Wise (violin), Frederick Riddle (viola), Anthony Pini (cello),
Leslie Bridgewater (piano)
Vaughan Williams 's song cycle 'On Wenlock Edge ' consists of six settings for tenor, piano, and string quartet of poems from Housman's
' A Shropshire Lad '. It was first performed in London in 1909. This cycle may well be described as a masterpiece of the composer's early period. The music is a perfect interpretation of the tragic beauty of Housman's words and is a masterly exposition of descriptive writing in the more subtle meaning of the term.

: 'BOYS IN UNIFORM'

A radio play of Vienna in 1939-40, by Zita Gordon , produced by Barbara Burnham
Cast
Schoolboys:
Here is yet another impressive glimpse into the piteous conditions of life under Nazi rule.
This play presents a simple domestic tragedy such as must be enacted time and time again in these days. The chief character is little Adolf. an Austrian boy who has become the innocent victim of Nazi propaganda through the school he attends. So ' conditioned' is the child of eleven to his totalitarian duties that he is ready to act as spy upon his parents when they are suspected of departing from the strict Nazi path.

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.
