JOHN ScoTT HUGHES : ' Endeavour '
Listeners will remember the broadcast in April of the launching of Endeavour at Gosport. She was built there for Mr. T. 0. M. Sopwith , who is the British challenger in the race for the America's Cup next August. That broadcast was relayed to America. Endeavour is to sail for the scene of the race in a few days' time, and tonight Mr. John Scott-Hughes , who gave an eye-witness account of the launching, is to say something about her.
He has been on board during some of her trial spins in home waters, and he will speak of the good form she has shown. It has often been argued that we have small chance of winning the Cup because the challenger has to be built to cross the Atlantic as well as to race. Mr. Scott Hughes , who is yachting correspondent of The Times, holds that actually the real handicap is the time wasted in the men's training, tor, on the journey over, they are naturally not handling her in racing trim. For one thing, the racing mast, which is higher than Nelson's Column, can obviously not be used.
Mr. Sopwith, well known in yachting circles, is also an aircraft manufacturer and an engineer. Listeners will wish him and Endeavour every success in his attempt to avenge the late Sir Thomas Lipton , whose pluck in challenging year after year was recognised by America when she presented him with a gold cup after his last unsuccessful attempt. May luck go with Endeavour. It was a happy augury that the siren of the Victory hailed her across the water at her launching.

The ever-popular Will Hay is to return with his scholars to the air this evening in his sketch On the Way to Cambridge, which was relayed from the Palladium about three years ago. He gave it at one of his three appearances in Royal Command Variety Performances. Listeners have asked if his elderly pupil is as old as he seems. Will Hay replies that if he were he would have to come to the studio in a bath-chair.
The Lancashire comedienne,
Elsie Sterndale , sang ' Chin Chin Chinaman ' at a Sunday School treat when she was three years old. Then she became more serious. Eventually she was, for six years, principal contralto soloist in Messiah in her church choir. Then her earlier love for light entertainment reasserted itself and she joined a concert party. She made a big success of her broadcast debut in ' First Time Here'.
Fred Lewis is to return to the microphone after an absence of eighteen months in a new act called Film Fan Fancies. He is a natural mimic, and in the Army mimicked his platoon sergeant to the platoon when the platoon sergeant wasn't there.
Fred McNaughton is the son of the late Fred McNaughton of the McNaughtons-as famous a cross-patter act as any in their day. Raymond Bennett comes of theatrical stock, too. When this successful cross-talk act was first broadcast in a relay from the Argyle Theatre, Birkenhead, it set the whole of England laughing, and was booked the next morning for twenty-seven weeks on the halls.
Marie Burke will be giving her last broadcast before going to America to play in Waltzes from Vienna. No artist at the microphone knows how to put a song over better.

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.
