Relayed from
The Commodore Theatre,
Hammersmith
Tom Jones , produced at the Apollo Theatre in 1907, has been performed by more operatic societies than it would be easy to count. Any later work which ousts it from its position among the first favourites will have to be exceptionally rich in all those qualities of melody, rhythm, harmony, and wholesome sentiment and humour, which blend here into a typically English whole. Graceful, melodious, light, the music is in every way original, stamped with a strong individuality ; always refined, laid out for the orchestra by the hand of a master, it is all respected and admired by musicians as it is loved by the man in the street.

Jim Vincent: The Hickling Coot Shoot
Many listeners will remember the talk Jim Vincent gave on 'A Norfolk Bird Sanctuary' in June, 1933. The Bird Sanctuary at Hickling was founded in 1909 by four great bird lovers, among them the late Lord Grey of Fallodon, and is the property of Lord Desborough today. Since it was formed Jim Vincent has been in active command. In twenty-five years of study of bird life at Hickling, he has seen over 250 different species.
Under his vigilance the bittern - booming heron of the Broads - that had not nested in England for forty years, nested at Hickling in 1911, and, protected from marauders, was able to bring up its young that are ' like little brown golliwogs '. Since that day seventy nests have been found.
Montagu's Harrier that comes to us from South Africa in April, the Marsh Harrier that arrives at the same time from the Continent, the bearded tit that makes a call ' like two silver coins being chinked together', all nest freely in Hickling sanctuary.
But the lives of this community have to be protected. It is the misfortune of the coot that it arrives in such numbers at this time of the year as to frighten away shy birds and to deprive others of food, and in addition that it is a flesh-eater and not above knocking young chicks on the head and eating them. It might be objected that harriers are flesh-eaters too, but they are comparatively few, whilst the coots are a myriad horde of barbarians.
This evening Jim Vincent will describe the annual coot shoot that is on necessary for the welfare of the sanctuary.

British Industries Fair, 1935
A Poster in sound for the first great occasion of Jubilee Year
Designed by KENNETH ADAM
The idea of this programme is to show something of the wonder of the British Industries Fair through the eyes of a countryman up in London for the day.
Kenneth Adam , who has planned it all, has been lucky enough to secure Joe Hancock for the part. Not only is Hancock a farmer from the Peak country who has only once been up in London before, and then for the day, but he is one of L. du Garde Peach's ' Great Hucklow players', who act their plays at full moon because it is needed to light the audience across the moors. Adam, when in the North on The Manchester Guardian, saw Hancock play a shepherd in a mystery play. When it was over, he and the other-shepherds took off their grease-paint and went back to tend their sheep.
In this broadcast Hancock will not be able to see the actual fair, for it will not be open, but he will see the dress rehearsal of the Fashion Parade at Dorchester House. In order to come to London, he had to give up the chance to take part in the entry of the Hucklow Players in the British Drama League competition, for it takes place this evening. But it will be over in time for his fellow-actors to listen to his broadcast.
The textile industry, to be represented at the White City, is to play a prominent part in this evening's programme, and the progress of cotton and wool goods from the raw material to the finished product will be conveyed by graded voices. From the Lancashire burr to the voice of the West-end sales lady.
Listeners will hear the actual sounds of the looms, and the voices of textile operatives. Other unusual sounds to be featured will come from products of the toy trade-humming-tops, tunes on tumblers. And incidentally the best glass is told by its ring.

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.
