From page 12 of ' When Two or Three'

: ' What Shall I Read ? '

Mrs. BELLOC LOWNDES
In the last year the reading habit has spread throughout the country, owing very largely to the twopenny libraries that have sprung up everywhere in towns and villages. It is one thing to have the opportunity to read, and quite another to know what to read.
In these talks which
Mrs. Belloc Lowndes is to give until October 20, listeners will find her their guide, philosopher, and friend. If twopenny libraries are to be the mainstay of her talks, she will discuss public libraries too, and suggest books of fact as well as fiction.
As an author who has published a succession of popular novels for thirty years, she should know the taste of the public, and women, who form by far the larger portion of the reading public in England, should gain much by listening.

Tom FARNDON : 'Speedway Thrills'
Tonight's talk is to be given by one of the most fearless and spectacular of speedway riders, Tom Farndon , the British Individual Champion. In bringing this honour to New Cross, Farndon became a Triple Champion, for he was already the National Champion and the London Champion-honours that have never before been held by one rider.
Five years ago, at the age of eighteen,
Farndon presented himself to the manager of the Coventry (Brandon) Speedway and expressed a wish to ' have a go ' on the track. At the next meeting he was given a try-out on his own old road machine, and for several weeks he gave exhibitions how to get on and how not to get off a motor-cycle. Then he persuaded a rider to lend him a real Speedway model so that he could show what he could really do.
The track record was four laps in 79 4-5 seconds. Farndon blazed round in 80 seconds ! The result was a contract and he was put immediately into the League Team.
Farndon has the reputation of being n ' win-or-buster '. He is a hard rider of a machine, for he frequently flings it over at hair-raising angles on the bends and then by remarkable efforts of physical strength hauls it up to a normal position irrespective of the enormous strain on the engine, frame, wheels, and tyres.

(Section C)
(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by JULIAN CLIFFORD
Grieg's Lyric Suite is made up of certain piano pieces which lend themselves admirably to transcription for orchestra. They were first arranged by the conductor Anton Seidl , and later re-arranged even more admirably by Grieg himself. The suite is among the most popular of all Grieg's orchestral music.
Svendsen, born at Christiana in 1840, began his musical career as a violinist, but after having practically lost the use of his hands, he devoted his life to composition and conducting. As a composer Svendsen possessed a pleasing melodic vein and displayed a craftsmanship of no mean order. In his gay and brilliant ' Carnival in Paris ' we find conciseness of expression, vitality, and an artistic feeling for orchestral colour.

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.
