' Districts of England '
'The Lake District-I, A Walk up
Great Gable'
K. G. SPENCE
Schools have been exploring Wiltshire since term began. They are now to explore a very different country-the Lake District, in the north-west of England.
Here long, dark lakes lie in a group of high mountains, and the scenery is some of the most beautiful in England, and will always be associated with the poet Wordsworth.
There are sheep here, but a different kind from the Wiltshire sheep-a variety that can nourish on the mountain farms. The hills are high and steep and more craggy, and made of hard, slaty rock instead of chalk.
A country steep and wild. Deep valleys. Rain. Bare fields and stone walls. Ravens and buzzards on the mountains. Different trees and flowers. People leading different lives.
This afternoon Mr. K. G. Spence is to take you up Great Gable, one of the highest mountains in the Lake District.

A Miracle Play in Four Scenes by BERNARD WALKE
Once again listeners are to hear this little miracle play relayed from Cornwall, where it has been acted by the villagers every year. Nothing can be more moving than the dramatic moment when the voices of the dead of the parish rise up to bless the young married couple.
This play was specially written for broadcasting, and one can imagine no better medium for conveying its beauty and simplicity to an audience. It is acted in the village church.

: THE CAFE COLETTE ORCHESTRA

Directed by WALFORD HYDEN in Continental Dance Music with ARANKA VON MAJOR
LEO MUSSI and DIMITRI VETTER
Produced by A. W. HANSON
The Cafe Colette was inaugurated almost as a challenge by the present Variety Director, who was so tired of hearing people say that British musicians could never play with the light-hearted spirit of foreigners. He put it on, and for a long time no one tumbled to the truth. People complained that it was disgraceful to employ foreigners when there were so many British musicians out of work, and a certain lady addressed a letter to the Conductor, The Cafe Colette, Paris, and, on its being returned to her by the French Post Office, sent a message to the B.B.C. to say she would be sure to look in at the Cafe Colette when she was next in Paris.
For a long time the joke was kept up, but when Walford Hyden went on the halls it was all exploded. He was once music director to Pavlova, by the way, and has conducted many famous shows in London, including The Strauss show, Waltzes from Vienna, at the Alhambra. In his never-ending search for new Continental music, Hyden has just unearthed some new Strauss waltzes. Though they have been bought by a publisher, they are still in manuscript. Some of them will be broadcast by the Café Colette tonight.

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.
