CHARLES BUCHAN : Football Training
Secrets'
THIS AFTERNOON'S TALK is to be given by an outstanding figure in Association Football. He won every possible award the game has to offer a player, with one exception : by tantalising luck he was never on the winning side in a Cup Final.
Charles Buchan , whose broadcasts have lately become familiar to listeners, played in two Cup Finals : for Sunderland against Aston Villa in 1913, and for Arsenal against Cardiff City in 1927, and in each case his team was beaten by a goal. He played for fourteen and a half years for Sunderland, and then for three years for Arsenal. It was owing to his skill as a key-man that much of the success of Arsenal was built up. He captained both Sunderland and Arsenal, and in one of his four international matches he captained England against Wales.
As a captain he had amazing control of his team, and a genius for inspiring others with his tactics. An interesting example of his market and actual value in his heyday is shown in the terms of his transfer by Sunderland to Arsenal. Arsenal had to pay Sunderland, over and above the transfer figure, £100 for every goal kicked by Buchan during the following season. He kicked nineteen goals.

: ' The National Character'

' National Character Today and Tomorrow '
BACK IN JANUARY the questions were asked : What is the National Character ? Has it changed ? If so, how and why has it changed ? And in the endeavour to supply the answers there have been various broadcasts. English Character, divided into North and South ; Scottish Character, Welsh and Irish Character.
Then, as a race, we were analysed by an American, a German, and a Czech. This led up to the February and March talks from the industrial and social worker's points of view. And now, finally, tonight, this series is to conclude with a discussion. What contemporary tendencies in the English character can be observed ? Ought these tendencies to give us cause for hope or alarm ?
Those listeners who have not already read H. W. Nevinson 's essay on this subject in the Talks Pamphlet, ' Ourselves,' are likely to find it all the more interesting now they have listened to this series of talks. It is fully illustrated and may be obtained from the Publications Department, B.B.C., or from any local office, price 6d., 7d. post free.

: 'The Far East'

The Series Reviewed
P. C. YOUNG
OF THE MANY successful series of talks given since January, ' The Far East' has proved one of the most popular.
Ann Bridge set the ball rolling by telling us how the Chinese farmer and his family live, while six weeks later, we heard all about the Japanese farmer from N. R. Roscoe. ' Cities of China', ' Travel in China', ' Chinese Bandits', ' The Student Returns', were no less interesting than ' Living in Japan', and the ' Japanese Army'.
Last Monday a special correspondent from Tokyo brought the series up to date with his broadcast, ' Japan is Changing', and tonight Mr. P. C. Young is to say something about the Far East in the Future.

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.

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.
