'Counting Close Cannons
CHARLES CHAMBERS
It's an amazing thing to go into Thurston's and watch big players making their hundreds with infinitely more facility than we make our ' ten ' breaks, and perhaps it is even more fascinating to watch the marker who, unlike even the best players, never seems to make a mistake.
For two sessions a day, for a good many years now, a slender figure at the far end of the hall has called out the score, his voice a mechanical echo like the click of the balls, a white-gloved hand taking a ball out of a pocket-going on like a machine.
He is a tradition there. He must know the shape of Inman's face as well as Tom Webster does. And this evening Charles Chambers is to speak of sqme of his experiences.
He marked the Stevenson-Tom Carpenter match during a Zeppelin raid. He marked Lindrum's record break of 4,700 odd and Joe Davis 's four-figure break that followed. He marked when Lindrum went two-and-a-half times round the table with close cannons, and when Tom Reece ineffectually sprang his surprise of the pendulum stroke on Inman, and Inman is said to have gone out to the telephone to find out if the stroke was barred.
Billiards at Thurston's and Charles
Chambers are synonymous.

: 'Conversations in the Train'—

This is the first broadcast of the revival of a series that was extremely popular in the spring of 1932. In fact, it is to be doubted whether any better medium has ever been found for providing spontaneous and topical conversation over the microphone. Several well-known authors have already promised to contribute material for ' Conversations in the Train ', including A. P. Herbert , whose series ' Mr. Pewter Works It Out' was one of the most popular features in broadcasting in the early part of last year.

THE B.B.C. VARIETY
ORCHESTRA directed by KNEALE KELLEY
Tonight's Music-Hall contains several old favourites, including Lily Morris , whose rousing songs are as popular over the microphone as they have long been on the halls. Teddy Brown , the world's heaviest xylophonist, is making a ' 'come-back' in radio variety. He has not broadcast since April, 1932. Johnson Clark is a ventriloquist whose act is funny enough in itself to make good broadcasting without depending on the sleight-of-hand element. Walsh and Barker are an American act who have spent a year in England playing in cabaret and on the halls. As for the Variety Orchestra and the Dancing Daughters, they are both comparative newcomers who have proved the contribution they can make to the atmosphere of these Music-Hall broadcasts. The composition of the Variety Orchestra is given in the box on page IIII.

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.
