: An Organ Recital

by HENRY COLEMAN
Relayed from Peterborough Cathedral
DR. HARVEY GRACE is organist of Chichester Cathedral, but that by no means describes a very full life spent in the service of organists and organ music. His fellow artists know him as Editor of The Musical Times and as a brilliant writer on matters connected with the organ. That still is not all ; he is a great student of Bach; his writings on general musical subjects have both authority and distinction ; indeed, wherever music is treated seriously the influence of Dr. Harvey Grace is sure to be felt. Listeners in particular will know him from his compositions which frequently appear in the programmes and from nis scholarly articles in The Listener.

: ' Along the Roman Roads'

G. M. BOUMPHREY ..
LET IT BE stressed that this series is essentially of an open air nature, and designed to appeal to those who love the countryside and who might like to follow Mr. Boumphrey's wanderings. He gave his first talk in this series last Friday, and since then he has travelled the Fosse Way from Axminster as far as Cirencester, via Ilchester, Bath, and Malmesbury.
Features to be looked for in these talks are things seen on the way; something about the Roman occupation, how they opened up the country and planned towns ; something about roads and their uses ; about scenery, place-names or natural history; maps and how to read them ; new landmarks, and places to put up at on the way.
Many listeners will remember Mr.
Boumphrey's series ' The Man about the House ', which he broadcast in the autumn of 1932, and again his contributions to ' Design in Modem Life ', a feature of the spring programmes of 1933. Next week he will continue his journey along the Fosse Way from Cirencester to Lincoln, and again come to the microphone with an account of his wanderings.

: Short Story

'The Red Lantern'
By RICHARD HUGHES
THE STORY chosen in this series tonight is by one of the most versatile of our younger writers. Poetry, novels, stories, plays both for. the theatre and the microphone come with equal facility from his pen.
He is represented in Georgian poets,
1022, and other anthologies ; his The Sisters' Tragedy was performed both in London and New York, his Danger, broadcast in 1924, was the first play specially written for the purpose. But perhaps Richard Hughes is even better known for his novel, ' A High Wind in Jamaica ', which was as big a success as it was well reviewed.
It was set in the early days of steam navigation, and the adventures which some children had with real pirates were notable for the matter-of-fact attitude of the children. This imaginative phantasy, which did much to make the author's reputation, contained remarkable descriptions of a tornado and an earthquake in Jamaica.

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.
