Mr. A. A. Humbles: 'A Year on Two Wheels '
There may have been methods of getting a job as original as that employed by Mr. Humbles, but there can surely never have been a more arduous one. He cycled over 34,000 miles in eleven months last year, and so beat the record put up by Marcel Planes twenty-one years before. Of his experiences and sensations; how lie was received at the winning post and, the record beaten, went on cycling until the end of the year, by which time he had covered 36,007 miles in 360 days, will be told in this original broadcast this evening. Mr. Humbles landed his job, and who will say he did not deserve it ?

Professor E. Ernest Hughes: '1933-A Retrospect'
This 'looking back' this evening by Professor E. E. Hughes is yet another of the weekly West Regional talks on Wales, which are relayed to listeners in the Daventry programme. During the autumn a wide variety of subjects has been chosen for broadcasts by distinguished speakers, such as 'Place Names', 'Topical Problems in Welsh Agriculture', 'The Library in Wales', 'Musicians and Poetry', and 'The Welshman Keeping Festival'. Thus a rare opportunity has been given for Welshmen in the area covered by Daventry to hear something of the country of their birth, and for all those interested in Wales to learn more of its history and traditions, its aims and difficulties. Professor E. E. Hughes is Professor of History in the University of Swansea.

Mr. Ralph D. Blumenfeld: 'Journalism in my Time'
'R.D.B.', who talks in this series this evening, was for thirty years Editorial Chief of the Daily Express. Previously with the Daily Mail, he has directed affairs throughout the birth and triumph of the mass-production newspaper. Before he went to the Daily Express, 'R.D.B.' had the reputation of being the highest-paid news editor in Britain, with a flair for clever headlines. One of his slogans in the old days was his name for the Central London Railway. As twopence was the fare for the whole or any part of the journey between the Bank and Shepherd's Bush, it became popularly known as the 'Tuppenny Tube'.

: In Town Tonight

A topical supplement to the week's programmes

: Music Hall

Fresh talent in a variety programme is always as needful and invigorating as the inclusion of old favourites, an for that and sentimental reasons Mrs. Jack Hvlton and her Boys in their
Dance Band will be accorded a welcome tonight. This is their first appearance in front of the microphone, and listeners will be making the acquaintance of a band that has soon made a name for itself since its comparatively recent formation. Popular acts in the bill include Norman Long , Tessie O'Shea , and Julian Rose , all of whom made a big hit at the Radio Exhibition at Olympia. Dale and O'Malley make a welcome return to the microphone after an absence of six months, while the famous and popular Hetty King will give some of her male impersonations. She stands alone in a specialised line which has found few exponents among the younger members of her profession.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
