: All Nationals except Daventry

Today you are to have an Irish half hour, and because Sara Allgood and Wilfred Shine are to come to the microphone, all the grown-ups you know are likely to accept invitations if you invite them to tea. Ask your parents about the players from the Abbey Theatre, Dublin. Ask them about The Playboy of the Western World, and about Juno and the Paycock, and they will tell you about these and other wonderful plays and about Sara Allgood who was in them. This is the first time she has broadcast in the Children's Hour, and the first time she has sung on the air. She is to tell you a story called 'What the breeze saw', and to sing you a song by Herbert Hughes called 'Three little Fairies'. Then Wilfred Shine, one of the finest actors on the stage today - he and Sara Allgood played together in the Liverpool Repertory Company - will tell you a story of his own called 'Cross Patch Pether'. It is to be an Irish half-hour indeed.

: The Rev. L. DANIELS: ' A Flying Padre in the Australian Bush'

Here is a talk that treats something new in a refreshing manner. It has humour, it tells a story, and conveys vividly the background it represents.
The Rev. L. Daniels was a pilot in the war. Twelve years later, when he found himself in charge of a parish in the Australian bush so vast that it took him a fortnight to visit an outpost in a car, he advertised for the gift of an aeroplane.
This talk recounts his adventures.
Although some were of the kind that nobody would have cared to share, others sound delightful. As, for instance, when he flew a hundred miles down the river in the crisp, morning air for early Sunday-morning service, and sometimes disturbed the slow-flying pelicans and black swans.
The Aussies called his aeroplane the ‘ flying horse ', the blacks called it the ' big fella ' bird. Mr. Daniels did his own running repairs. You will hear, among other things, how he nearly lost his pilot's licence.

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.
