: From the Four Corners: 2

Leonard Bullen
Percy Howe
Ceredig Richards
Leonora Gregory
Cecil Scott
Charles J. McGuinness

In this series, that is being given on the last Sunday of each month, the four corners of the world are to be described to listeners by travellers who have visited them.

This evening Mr. Leonard Bullen will start off with a picture of Honolulu, with its heterogeneous crowds, stately buildings and tropical flowering trees, warm-scented breezes and lovely countryside.

Next, listeners are to be transported in imagination to the West Indies to take part in an alligator hunt with Mr. Percy Howe. Boots off, and absolute quiet, please ! Only an hour before the moon rises. Mr. Howe attaches a spot-light to his forehead, switches on, and glides silently out into the mangrove swamp.
Then Mr. Ceredig Richards is to tell listeners of Morocco, of an adventure in the desert, and of sheikhs as they are and not as they might be.

Then on to Australia with Miss Leonora Gregory , to a pool in the Grampian mountains. A vivid talk, with the feel of plunging into cool pools, the colour of amber.

Next, a native village in the heart of Africa. Here the Luimbi people worship spirits, and Mr. Cecil Scott holds converse with a ' native over a camp fire.

When Mr. Scott goes back he will take with him the first book they have ever seen-his translation of the Gospel of St. Mark into the Luimbi language.

Lastly, listeners are to be taken by Mr. Charles J. McGuinness to a very different country.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An Appeal on behalf ot
THE NATIONAL BIRTHDAY TRUST FUND
FOR EXTENSION OF MATERNITY
SERVICES
By Mrs. STANLEY BALDWIN
The main objects of the National Birthday Trust Fund (for extension of maternity services) are to finance the extension of voluntary maternity hospitais and training centres for midwives, to improve the emoluments and status of midwives, to enable hospitals and other institutions to administer anaesthetics, and to do everything humanly possible to reduce the terrible toll of mortality in childbirth.
Among the fine things the Fund has done in the last year or two is the experiment undertaken in the Rhondda Valley (a district with one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the country). Here, in co-operation with the Local Authorities, it has been possible to arrange services of all kinds and extra nourishment for expectant mothers.
Over 3,000 mothers die in childbirth every year in England and Wales, and it is said that half of these deaths are preventable.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]

: THE B.B.C. THEATRE ORCHESTRA

Leader, MONTAGUE BREARLEY
Conducted by REGINALD BURSTON
ANGELA PARSELLES (soprano)
WALTER GLYNNE (tenor)
Tom Jones , produced at the Apollo Theatre in 1907, has been performed by more operatic societies than it would be easy to count. Graceful, melodious, light, the music is in every way original, stamped with a strong individuality; a]ways refined, laid out for the orchestra by the hand of the master, it is all respected and admired by musicians as it is loved by the man in the street.

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.
