: Ulster v. South Africa

A Running Commentary on the Rugby Football Match
By Captain H. B. T. WAKELAM
Relayed from RAVENHILL PARK, BELFAST
THE Springboks reach another stage in their long and arduous tour to-day when they meet Ulster's side on the excellent ground at Ravenhill Park. Belfast. It will be a good test for the visitors, and will give them further insight into the game, as Ireland plays it. Rugby actually is one of those points which helps to unite Southern and Northern Ireland. Ulster joins in the inter-Province tournament and members of her side play in the National team. Recently Ulster has not been able to field teams of any special strength, but these things run in cycles. Forward no doubt they will give the South Africans a hard game, but it will be difficult for their backs to hold the volatile
Springbok attack. The game should be interesting to follow through Captain Wakelam's description, if the South Africans can field a representative side after their hard matches of the past week or so.

THE CHORAL AND ORCHESTRAL
UNION OF GLASGOW
THE SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA
(Leader, MAx JAFFA)
Conductor, SIR HENRY WOOD
Relayed from ST. ANDREW'S HALL,
GLASGOW
FOR over forty years—this is its forty - second season—the Choral and Orchestral Union of Glasgow has been waging an uphill battle against adverse box-oftice balances. It is kept in active existence only by the public spirit of a number of guarantors who make up the deficiencies year after year with the Scot's proverbial cheer-fulness in parting with hard-earned money. The Union is responsible for the maintenance of the Scottish Orchestra, for many years the only fully equipped symphony orchestra North of the Tweed; now, in Edinburgh, Professor Tovey is gradually training his locally recruited Reid orchestra towards that standard. Sir George Henschel was the first permanent conductor, and among his successors Sir Frederic Cowen and Sir Landon Ronald have both done notable work, presenting classical and modern music in most of the Scottish cities. Native composers have always been given chances of bringing their own music to a hearing, and the policy of the Union has all along been a generous and broadminded one. In music which needs a choir as well as an orchestra, the Glasgow Choral Union joins forces with ' Tho Scottish,' and throughout the kingdom many other choral societies have enlisted its help. The orchestra has played occasionally in England-in !London, Leeds, New-castle, Huddersfield, and other centres, and on one occasion, in Sir George Henschel 's day, it gave a command performance at Windsor Castle.

FREDERICK GRISEWOOD (Baritone)
THE WIRELESS MALE CHORUS
Conducted by CYRIL DALMAINE
At the Piano, ERNEST LUSH
Produced by ALAN HOWLAND
The Programme will include :
And some Rounds
HERE is one of those mock Outside
Broadcasts that introduce variety into a Saturday night sing-song and give the Wireless Chorus a chance for a pleasant smoker. Wo are taken over this evening to the Parish Hall at some village in the Midlands; the annual choir supper is coming to an end. We are just in time for the closing periods of the Rector's speech. The festive board is cleared ; the decanters and nutcrackers pass from hand to hand; the air is soon thick with tobacco smoke. The Rector starts off the concert with one of the ' old favourites ' ; the choir produce the piece they have been rehearsing for weeks ; Mr. Willetts, the churchwarden, provides comic relief and a few hardy annuals. Simple fun and frolic; a pleasant old-world half-hour.

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.
