' Cricket Bats in the making '
R. WOODROOFFE
Perhaps even many enthusiastic cricketers do not know that it takes something like eighteen years from seedling to factory to make a bat; or that North-West Borneo and East Anglia equally contribute to a good one. It is a phrase of our language to wield the willow, but even Hobbs could not do it without handling the cane.
This evening R. Woodrooffe , who once played cricket for the Navy and gave two cricket talks last year, ' Cricket in the Seven Seas ' and ' The Navy at Play ', is to take listeners in imagination to the ground where the willow grows, and round the factory where the bat is made.
Listeners will hear of ' bat willow ' or ' close-barked willow of ' rolls of timber arriving in the yard. They will be able to visualise the whole process. The logs riven into clefts ; the chopped blades left to season for a couple of years. Then the benches and craftsmen with sharp knives. The bat shaping, the artist who is making it continually unclamping it to get a feel of the bat'.
A grey piece of wood came in from the drying shed, a white, gleaming blade is passed out to the presser. He receives it as soft as putty and passes it on as hard as old wood. Through every process listeners will be taken-the making of the handle, the wonderful artistry in the joinery. The glueing and final shaping and polishing until at last all is finished.
And they will hear what purpose is served by reindeer bone,. why only willow can be used for a blade, and the reason of that little hole at the bottom of every bat.

Aileen Stanley , musical comedy vaudeville, and radio star of America, is back at the London Palladium after an absence of two years, and is to give her first broadcast tonight in Music-Hall. Though she has paid several visits to London and has sung in theatres and cabaret, she has only broadcast before over here from 2LO.
Murray Ashford has been a concert-party king for years. At both Margate and Westcliff his name is a household word, and for the last six years he has won fame at Scarborough with his concert party, ' The Bouquets.' He and Edgar Sawyer became associated there, and their present act is a direct result.
The Four Harmony Kings came to
England twelve years ago. Since then they have been constantly working either here or in America.
Jenny Howard became famous in a week. In 1928 at the Shoreditch Music-Hall she produced an act to see what she could do. Before the Saturday night she was booked for five years. She went straight from Shoreditch to the London Coliseum.

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.
