: LONDON v. SOUTH AFRICA

A Running Commentary on THE RUGBY FOOTBALL MATCH by Captain H. B. T. WAKELAM
Relayed from TWICKENHAM
THIS game will draw a large company to
Twickenham, for the ' Springboks' have ndded to their reputation, and all are wondering now if they can beat England's side. The London team is specially created for this match. A similar game was one of the first played by the South Africans in their town. All the talent of the London club sides has been gathered to meet them. The one trouble is that the home team have not had playing experience together, which will give the South Africans, who know one another's methods so well, a big advantage.

: THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND

Conductor, B. WALTON O'DONNELL
ARCHIBALD WINTER (Tenor)
BESIDES his operas and music dramas, Wagner left some twenty orchestral and choral works, overtures, cantatas and a symphony among them, only one or two of which, like the Siegfried Idyll and tho Faust Overture, are at all well known to tho present generation. This Festival March belongs to 1876, the year which saw the first complete performances of tho Nibelung's Ring in his own theatre at Bayreuth, the year, too, in which ho produced Tristan in Berlin for the first time. The March was commissioned from him by the organizers of tho Centennial Exhibition at Philadelphia, and wns first played there on May 10, 1876. Wagner had sketched it out at Bayreuth in the beginning (if the year, and finished it at Berlin in March, in the midst of the rehearsals for Tristan.

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.
