Sport, speed on the road and in the air, and the departure of a giant liner on her maiden voyage, are the open-air thrills captured by the microphone and transmitted to listeners in one afternoon of record outside broadcasts today.
From Shelsley Walsh comes a running commentary on the Annual Open Hill-Climb for Racing and Sports Cars, where the speed kings struggle to cover a 1,000 yard course wit.h a. one in eight gradient in something like forty-two seconds.
Wimbledon comes next, where international tennis stars are halfway through the All-England Lawn Tennis championship.
At 3 o'clock you will hear the ceremony of the, departure of the new White Star motor vessel, Georgic, on her maiden voyage from Liverpool to New York : a farewell speech from the Lord Mayor of Liverpool on the bridge of the liner, and music by the ship's orchestra as she slips down the Mersey.
The scene changes to Hendon for the next relay, where the Royal Air Force is holding its ever-popular annual pageant. Stunt flights, mock battles, and the glittering pageant will be vividly described against a background, of roaring engines.

: A Pianoforte Recital By MAURICE COLE

THE Faust legend has attracted more composers than probably any other. In various forms it has been set by composers as far removed in outlook as Spohr and Busoni, both of whom used the story in opera and neither of whom owed anything to Goethe for their text. The libretto of Gounod's opera, however the most popular musically of them all, is based on Goethe's drama, but so unworthily, as Germans contend, that in Germany the opera is called Margarethe in protest, and not Faust. Berlioz's Damnation of Faust is also partly indebted to Goethe for its text. Apart from operas, a number of concert works' have been written round the legend, the most notable being by Wagner, Schumann, and Liszt, the latter of whom composed a symphony of huge proportions on the theme, and this orchestral piece to which he has given the name of waltz. It is, however, far more than a waltz in the ordinary sense, and is rather a tone picture of country revels into which Mephistopheles breaks with a wild fiddle dance of his own.

Captain HAROLD ARMSTRONG , O.B.E. : ' Brigand
Hunting in Turkey '
CAPTAIN ARMSTRONG fought in the seige of Kut under General Townshend, was a prisoner of war in Turkey, and after the war the Assistant Military Attache to the British Embassy at Constantinople. In 1922 he was put in charge of the Turkish Gendarmerie in Skutari, the district across the Bosphorus from Constantinople. His work here was to break up a particularly fierce band of brigands, who were ravaging the countryside, pillaging, murdering. and making themselves generally unpleasant. Extermination with a small force of horse and foot gendarmerie was a long and hazardous business, and Captain Armstrong's story will make exciting hearing.

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.
