: 'How I keep House'

By a Smallholder's Wife
This morning's talk is to be given by the wife of a smallholder, and she will speak of some of the difficulties of life in the countrv-difficulties all the greater because both she and her husband were Londoners.
She will describe how they lost their money on poultry and had to mortgage their property in order to carry on. A hard life. No fixed wage coming in. All the work entailed by taking in summer visitors to eke things out. Stock to feed. No modern conveniences. It says much for the country that, in spite of all, she has no wish to live in town again.

Your Club Activities
This morning the talks by Club leaders in various parts of the country are to be continued, and you will hear what is being done to promote activities in Clubs other than your own. In this way ideas can be shared, and one Club can give hints to another as to how activities can be increased.

E. W. BOVILL: Wandering Tribes of th; Sahara '
This morning Schools are to hear the first of two talks on the Sahara Desert by Mr. E. W. Bovill. Today they are to hear about the wandering tribes of the desert, and next week about the dwellers in the oases.
Schools will learn that whatever they may have heard, the Sahara is not altogether sandy, nor altogether hot, nor altogether dry. The Tuareg are a nomad people who wear veils, and are never seen without them. Their wealth is entirely in their flocks and herds. They provide the camels for much of the traffic to the markets of Timbuktoo and Kano. Camels, slowly though they move, can yet average twenty-five miles a day, continue day after day, and last out a fortnight without a drink. The Tuareg are said to have been Christians once. The cross is a very common decoration amongst them, and many of their children are given biblical names.

' Round the Countryside '-5
' How Plants go to Sleep '
RICHARD MORSE
Although the sleep of plants is quite different from the sleep of animals, it is very interesting to compare the two. Some plants, like many animals, go to sleep every night, while others, again like many animals, fall into a long, deep sleep for the winter months.
But the winter behaviour of the plants is strangely varied. Some of them perish utterly before the winter really comes ; others continue to grow and to flower, no matter what the weather may be ; while yet others have found many safe and ingenjous ways of lying low until the spring sun awakens them to a new life.

A Romantic Musical Drama
Book and Lyrics by BRUCE SIEVIER
Music by PAT THAYER
Special Orchestrations by WALLY WALLOND
Adaptation and Production by CHARLES
BREWER
The Cast and Albert Stamp , his Valet JAY LAURIER
THE WIRELESS CHORUS (Section C) and THE B.B.C. THEATRE ORCHESTRA,
Conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON
The Prologue is set in a London Hotel, after which the scene changes variously from the s.s. Aurora to Government House, Perada-Dream Valley Ranch-and the mountains of Southern Pinelands.
This romantic musical drama was originally written with a view to talking films in the days when they had just started, but facilities were not then available for tackling such an ambitious script. Times have changed, and tonight-and tomorrow in the Regional programme--one or two big firms will be listening with interest.
The story is real full-blooded ' he-man ' stuff with plenty of movement, its principal setting the Southern Pinelands-a place where men are men and girls are capable of looking after themselves, even when faced with the type of ' tough guy ' that abounds.
Jaquita Jackson , tenant of the Dream
Valley Ranch-our heroine-is played by the popular broadcast star, Marjery Wyn , and Lord Rayson, our hero, by Frank Drew , who will be remembered for his broadcast of a leading part in Good-night, Vienna.
Drama must have its comedy relief, which in this instance is in the more than capable hands of Jay Laurier. Tessa Deane , of Derby Day fame, plays the part of a woman whose heart rules her head.
But the central figure round whom the plot turns is the Governor of the Southern Pinelands, Michael O'Hegan -a resolute and magnetic personality. For such a romantic rôle no better player could be found than Harry Welchman.

Sir JAMES JEANS, F.R.S. : The Other
Planets'
Last week, with Sir James Jeans , listeners wandered in imagination over the moon's surface and studied its scenery, dug into it to see what it is made of, and observed an eclipse of the sun. Tonight they are to pass on to visit other planets, on which they may expect to have many strange experiences.

: An Organ Recital

by FERNANDO GERMANI
Relayed from St. Luke's, Chelsea
A Programme of Italian Organ Music
Fernando Germani , at the age of twenty-six, is already one of the foremost organists in Italy. His appointments as Organ Professor at the Rome Conservatoire, and at the Curtis Institute, Philadelphia, in succession to Lynwood Farnham, establish his reputation in two continents.
The new organ at St. Luke's,
Chelsea, built by John Compton , the builder of the Broadcasting House Organ, replaces one built in the church just over a hundred years ago which had in its latter days fallen into decay. The Compton instrument was first used at Christmas, 1933.
Constructed on the extension principle, the console is placed a good way away from the organ-an especially valuable advantage to recitalists-and since the whole organ is in some ways related to that at Broadcasting House, listeners are likely to hear more of this instrument, one of the most beautiful in London.

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.
