'Tireless Wings-A Talk on Racing
Pigeons'
H. J. SEWELL
There are some 75,000 members of the National Homing Union and a quarter of a million pigeon-fanciers in the country, but talks on racing pigeons make even a wider appeal. A bird, released hundreds of miles from its home, and finding its way back through all weathers, often wounded by a hawk or some indiscriminate fellow with a gun, appeals to our imaginations.
Mr. Sewell, who is to give this talk, kept pigeons from boyhood. He became interested in homing pigeons twelve years ago, and his first loft cost him 7s. 6d. Today he is a member of the Council of the National Homing Union, and is known throughout the racing pigeon world.
Nine years ago 2,000 pigeons were released in Guernsey on a bitter day of fog and rain, and only eight were ' clocked in ' in England before night. Among them was Mr. Sewell's pigeon 'Babie', only twenty weeks old. It had covered the 265 miles to Derbyshire across sea and land, and won him his first big prize.

Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
HAROLD WILLIAMS (baritone) Varlaam, :n the opera Boris Godounov, is a wandering, dissolute monk. In this song he tells of the glorious days ' Long ago at Kasan where I was fighting '. when Tsar Ivan harried the Tartars in that city, drove mines beneath it, and blew up forty thousand of the hated enemy-so Varlaam says.

THE B.B.C. VARIETY ORCHESTRA directed by KNEALE KELLEY
Tonight Sybil Stanford , so well known in revue and variety, is to give her first broadcast from London, but her voice has often been relayed from the Argyle Theatre, Birkenhead.
This is Collinson and Dean's last broadcast before they go into Aladdin at the Prince of Wales' Theatre, Birmingham, in which they are to play Chinese policemen. Part of the pantomime is to be relayed after Christmas and it is hoped that their famous schoolroom song will be included.
Belle Baker is one of America's leading comediennes. She is over here on a visit, and showed us what she can do by her broadcast in ' Entertainment Hour ' last week. The Houston Sisters you all know. They added to their laurels at the Radio Exhibition at Belfast.
Horace Kenney has been making thousands laugh in the provinces by his impersonation of Peter Doody in The Arcadians. He is featured this week in ' People You Hear ' on page 722.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
