: Time to Spare S. P. B. Mais

IT WILL DE REMEMBERED that on January 27, 1932, at the Albert Hall , H.R.H. the Prince of Wales made a plea for voluntary work in aid of the unemployed. As a result of this appeal it was arranged for Mr. S. P. B. Mais to make a tour of the depressed areas and, under the title of ' S 0 S ', to give a weekly broadcast talk describing the conditions of the unemployed.
The present series has been arranged as a sequel to the talks given a year ago. It is easy to forget, and these talks will help to remind listeners of the conditions in which many of their fellows are bound to live. Mr. S. P. B. Mais will open the series tonight, but the talks that follow will be given not by an outside observer, but by unemployed men and women themselves.

ONE of our cleverest and most versatile actors is to present a sketch tonight. Donald Calthrop made his first professional appearance when he was eighteen ; became an actor-manager when he was thirty, and in the last few years has made a big name for himself on the films.
Mose (Billy Bennett ) is to return to the microphone with a new Alexander, and listeners may amuse themselves by guessing who he is. Al and Bob Harvey are racing across the Atlantic from Canada to keep the date.
Mamie Soutter made her professional appearance at the age of seven, when she secured a contract at 6d. a week of six performances. She was such a success that a rival manager snapped her up, and her salary jumped sensationally to 2s. 6d.
Julian Rose is back again, and listeners will welcome his return both to health and to the microphone.

: 'Water Front and Open Sea'

Captain DAVID BONE
CAPTAIN DAVID w. BONE is in active service as Commander of the Transylvania of the Anchor Line. He has also written largely about ships and seafaring life. His books are ' The Brassbounder ', ' Broken Stowage ', ' Merchantmen-at-Arms ', ' The Lookoutman ', and ' Capstan Bars '. A long and varied sea life that began-in 1890-with service in square-rigged sailing ships, and now continues in a great transatlantic liner, gives him both text and warrant for a series of talks about the sea and ships.
Listeners need not expect the figures and sad economic facts of present-day shipping to be seriously stressed by him. These, he thinks, are more impressively presented on the printed page. His text in these talks will be the personality of ships, their warmth and comfort; the men who man them, their relations with one another and with the shore ; the ports-home and foreign-that harbour ships.

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.
