: Mr. Felix Hotchkiss: The Game of Bowls

Mr. Hotchkiss, a past President of the English Bowling Association and author of 'The Art of Bowls,' will talk on the many interesting questions of etiquette and technique which have grown with the oldest of outdoor pastimes.
Records exist of the game in the thirteenth century, and a sixteenth century writer announces 'how a little altering of the one side maketh the bowl to run biass waies.'

: Recital

by MABEL RITCHIE (Soprano)
JOHN BARTLET , composer of 'Ayres' for the lute and other instruments, was probably a lutenist himself. The title of a volume of his songs published in 1606 gives some idea of how the voice was accompanied in those days where now the pianoforte is monotonously general: 'A Book of Ayres with a Triplicitie of Musicke. Whereof the First Part is for Lute or Orpliarion, and the Viole de Gambo, with four Partes to sing, The Second Part is for two Trebles to sing to the Lute and Viole, the third part is for the Lute and one Voyce, and the Viole de Gambo.'
WEEP you no more, sad fountains, is one of the most exquisite of the songs composed by the English lutenist, John Dowland , who was not only a lute player unrivalled in his day in the whole of Europe and a highly skilled singer, but a composer of songs of such surviving beauty as perhaps to place him amongst the half-dozen greatest song writers of the world. He may be said to be the pioneer, practically the creator of what later, developed into so-called art songs, or Lieder, and in his manner of combining voice f and accompaniment so that each is an essential complement of the other in the design of his songs he can claim Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, and particularly Hugo Wolf as his lineal descendants.

A NOTHER famous ' unknown ' risks discovery by coming to the microphone. Francis Iles is the nom-de-plume of the author of Malice Aforethought and other phenomenally successful crime stories, and conceals the identity of a well-known public man.

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.
