Mr. JIM VINCENT : Pike Fishing on the Broads-How to Catch a 20-Pounder'
NOT only fishermen, but bird lovers, and lovers of nature generally, will be interested in the talk this evening, for Jim Vincent is a personality Richard Jefferies and Gilbert White of tSelborne would have appreciated. A man who, night and day for ten weeks, can watch the nest of a Montague Harrier, who in late autumn can see in the broads ' golden reeds, more duck, and very
few trippers ', who, having to come to London on business, must pass the afternoon at the Zoo.
Listeners will remember the absorbing talk Jim Vincent gave on ' A Nor-folk Bird Sanctuary ' in June last year, in which his account of rare Marsh Harriers, birds which had hot nested in the British Isles for forty years previous to 1915, but which now breed every year at Hickling, aroused the interest of ornithologists everywhere. This evening he is to talk of pike-the twenty-pounder especially.
To land a pike of this weight is the ambition of every fisherman, and many are landed in every angler's dreams. But Jim Vincent has landed in actuality nine since the war, the largest 291 lbs.

A PROGRAMME wholly devoted to the music of Eric Coates is becoming a familiar broadcast. Unless, however, Coates's music were not immensely and deservedly popular, such programmes would not, of course, be justified. The deduction is obvious. A brilliant student of the Royal Academy of Music, where his principal instrument was the viola, Eric Coates soon found himself in the front rank of players, and was for some years principal -viola of the Queen's Hall Orchestra. He was a distinguished chamber music player, too. While still a member of the Queen's Hall Orchestra he had a good deal of his own orchestral music produced at its Promenade and other concerts. Since 1919 he has practically given up playing, and has devoted himself to composition. Much of his music is in lighthearted vein, graceful and melodious, and all marked by thoroughly sound workmanship. The names of his best-known Suites indicate quite clearly the direction in which he is happiest- The
Countryside, Summer Days, Wood Nymphs , The Merrymakers : his music does indeed illustrate in a fresh and wholesome way the sunnier aspects of the world. His later Suites, however v are not all of rural joys, and show his fancy to be versatile.

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.
