: Installation of the Most Honble. The Marquess of Reading, G.C.B., G.C.S.I., G.C.V.O., Constable of Dover Castle, as Lord Warden and Admiral of the Cinque Ports

A Meeting of the Grand Court of Shepway at Dover

The proceedings open with the Proclamation. The Seneschal reads Lord Warden's Precept. The Mayors of the Ports and Towns hand in the Returns, and the Mayors and Barons answer their names.

The Seneschal announces that the Court is formed, and the Lord Warden states that he has summoned the Court in order that his Patent may be read.
The Mayor of Hastings requests the Lord Warden to take upon himself the duties of his Office and to maintain the liberties, etc., of the Ports, to which the Warden accedes. The Lord Warden's salute of nineteen guns is fired from the Castle.
The Right Honble. Sir Frederick Pollock, Bt., K.C., Judge Official and Commissary of the Court of Admiralty of the Cinque Ports offers an address of congratulation, to which the Lord Warden replies. The Court is then dissolved.

Event No. VIII
Low Flying Attack, by No. 17 (Fighter) Squadron. When advancing troops are held up by enemy fire, it is possible for aircraft to give valuable assistance by destroying the resistance and covering the advance.
Low-flying aircraft offer to rifles and machine-guns on the ground an easy target when flying on a steady course. Converging attack is, therefore, adopted with the object of maintaining continuous fire on the target from a number of different directions. Whilst one aircraft, having delivered its attack, is leaving the target, the next is opening fire and covering the ' get-away' of the previous aircraft.

5.15 The Children's Hour
' The Sand-Castle ' a play by L. Du Garde Peach with music by V. Hely-Hutchinson
THE GARDENER
This afternoon The Sand Castle is to be given for the fourth time. It is an example of the best of L. du Garde Peach's imaginative work and of the most delightful of Victor Hely-Hutchinson's music, which the composer himself will conduct.
Two children are with their father on the beach, and a book of nursery rhymes is washed out by the sea. They all fall asleep and go down a tunnel under the sea in a dream.
There, under the guidance of a delightful lobster, who has a catch phrase, ' It's a system', they meet all the fairy-tale people out of the book. But Cinderella has lost her prince, the cat has lost Dick Whittington , the dog has lost Mother Hubbard , Red Riding Hood her wolf, while, contrariwise, the sheep which Bo-peep had lost in the rhyme, have found her and won't be shooed away.
The Pearls whisper, and the Tide talks, and the Little Waves sing little songs. And Little Boy Blue - but for the sake of the children who have not heard the play before, we mustn't give the secret away.
Olive Groves is once more to play Bo-Peep. She is featured in ' People You Hear ', on page 894.

: Sports Talk GEORGE DRINKWATER: ' Crews at Henley '

THE REGATTA starts next Wednesday. Crews have been at Henley for the past two or three weeks, and today they are rowing their last full courses. All the experts will be there-waiting at the ' barrier' with their stop-watches out and agreeing that rowing is not quite what it was in their day. Except, of course, for the coaches, who live again in the crews they look after.
Colonel Gibbon, the Oxford coach, is probably there, and Peter Haig
Thomas, who has coached Cambridge to victory for the last eleven years, and is now by all accounts going to turn his attention to Oxford. Steve Fairbairn with his ' Jesus' style and swivel rowlocks, George Drinkwater and so on. The course is dead straight for its full length of I mile 550 yards, no easy thing to find on the Thames. They had to cut away a bit of an island to get this just after the war. Booms mark the course, and have been in position for the last ten days. The enclosures with their marquees and geraniums are more or less ready for next Wednesday. The stage is set for this oarsmen's Mecca, and as gay and pretty a carnival as the summer has to offer. George Drinkwater , who twice rowed for Oxford, can be relied on to give an interesting account of how the crews are shaping.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
