BERNARD DARWIN : The New Amateur
Golf Champion'
Relayed from the Club House, Prestwick, Ayrshire
THE SPEAKER tonight has been in the front flight of amateur golfers for the last thirty years. He has twice reached the semi-final of the Amateur Cham-pionship, has represented England in eight International matches, and Britain v. America at Long Island, in 1922. Among his trophies are the Don Memorial Cup, won on three occasions ; the Gold Vase, 1919 ; and the President's Putter of Oxford and Cambridge Golfing Society, 1924.
He has just had the honour of being made captain elect of the Royal and Ancient Club of St. Andrews, and is to drive himself into office at the next autumn medal in September. He will rank among the very few Englishmen, who have been captain of the first golf club in the world to receive the designation ' Royal ', King William the Fourth bestowing the honour.
Mr. Bernard Darwin is a well-known writer on golf, and also a well-known broadcaster; it will be remembered that he gave eye-witness accounts of the play in the Walker Cup. He was one of the selectors of the British team.

JOHN OLIVERE and Morey Wicks formed a partnership as recently as last October, and have already been a success in variety, cabaret, concerts, and on the air.
Muriel George started in ' The
Follies ', and was the original singer of 'My Moon'. She was also the original Ilka in Night Bird in England. She sang ' somewhere in France ' during the War, and charmed not only Tommies. For one day while she was singing in a big army hut a bird flew in at one of the windows to listen, and a rabbit came out from under the stage and did the same. This is her first appearance as a solo act in front of the microphone.
A young man going from job to job till he finds one that suits him may gather no moss, but he gathers what is better-experience. Donald Peers ran away from school, travelled the country with a squad of journeyman painters, sailed to the Persian Gulf as a mess-room steward on a British tanker, got tired of the sea, and engaged in dock work at Lowestoft. There a concert party engaged him, and changed the tenor of his life.
Billy Bennett , who is Mose, has appeared in four Command Performances. He appeared with Alexander in 1931, and by himself in 1926, last year, and again this year.

: 'Time to Spare'

UP TO Now we have been hearing from the unemployed themselves what a curse ' time to spare ' is; tonight we are to hear what can be done to make the best of it. For time may be made to pass quickly and usefully until permanent work can be found for at least some of those who are now without it.
Lincoln has certainly been foremost in the way of organising social work, and the Lincoln People's Service Club runs clubs for carpentry, metal-work, boot - repairing, and so forth. The work is entirely voluntary, and the spirit communal.
It must not be forgotten that other towns have their clubs and organisations, and have done splendid work, nor must it be overlooked that there are towns that have the will but not the money to run them. It is the intention to bring an unemployed man to the microphone to explain just what one of these clubs can mean to one of those who is in enforced idleness.

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.
