: Sports Talk ' Canoe Racing in America '

UFFA FOX
This evening Uffa Fox is to relate how he and Roger de Quincey , representing the Humber Yawl Club of England, crossed the Atlantic and competed for the National Sailing Championship of America and the International Canoe Trophy. They spent two weeks on Sugar Island on the St. Lawrence, racing through the day and sitting round the camp-fire at night. By the end of the fortnight they had won for England the National Trophy.
But they had still to go to New York and take part in the International race before their purpose was achieved. Uffa Fox will describe how between them they carried off this second prize by two races to one.
The speaker is well known for his exploits on sea and river. He is an authority on cruising. He has crossed the Atlantic in sailing boats three or four times, and once took a party of sea scouts in a whaleboat across to France, sailing and rowing.

A Topical Supplement to the Week's
Programmes

: The Old Music-Halls

A Series of Programmes written and arranged by M. WILLSON DISHER , and presented by STANFORD ROBINSON
II-THE ROYAL STANDARD and THE VICTORIA PALACE

THE REVUE CHORUS
THE B.B.C. VARIETY ORCHESTRA
Conductor, STANFORD ROBINSON
This series began with the featuring of the Canterbury Music-Hall in October, 1933, and before it broke off last November, the following halls were dealt] with: Tivoli, Alhambra, Palace, London Pavilion, Empire, Holborn ; Mogul and Coliseum ; Oxford and Palace; Deacon's and the Collins.
The series continues tonight with the Royal Standard, which was pulled down in 1910, and the Victoria Palace, which was built on its site and opened in the following year.
These two great music-halls-which may be regarded as one so far as the site is concerned-have a more consistent variety history than any others. Among the taverns of a hundred years ago which were the fathers of the halls, four occupied sites that have become famous. One was the Canterbury Arms, another the Great Mogul, another Savile House (parent of the Empire), and another the Royal Standard in Vauxhall Road. This last became the Royal Standard Music-Hall in 1863, was reconstructed in 1893, and replaced by the Victoria Palace in 1911. The present building had the honour of starting Young England on the road to fame. It was the only hall in London in which Sir Harry Lauder appeared for several years after the War. And many will recall La Milo-most popular of living statues in her day.

: Dancing Through

(Third Edition)
A Jubilee Pageant of popular music during the past twenty five years
This is the third edition of Geraldo's Non-Stop Hour, and the fifth broadcast, the first two editions each having had a revival. Tonight's edition, in view of the Jubilee, will comprise numbers selected over the past twenty-five years. Some dance music, but by no means all dance music-popular songs, anything and everything that caught on at the time, tunes that rang in our ears, and words that for weeks and even months were remembered. Songs that, repeated tonight, will bring back the past.
It is doubtful if three more popular women vocalists could be got together in one programme than Olive Groves, Esther Coleman , and Elsie Carlisle. The broadcast will be given from an outside studio in order than an organ may supplement the orchestra, and At Bollington, who is to play it is, of course, the popular Plaza organist.
In Geraldo's first Non-Stop Hour,
145 tunes were played, and with regard to the number of tunes, it is hoped tonight to beat all records.

(Section E)
Led by MARIE WILSON
Conducted by CLARENCE RAYBOULD
Rimsky-Korsakov's first opera The Maid of Pskov (better known as Ivan the Terrible), was composed in 1869, but drastically revised in 1877, and again in 1891. In the 1877 version, the composer inserted a Prologue, to clear up the obscurities of the action, but this was cut out of the 1891 version, since, after all, it was conceived with a different set of characters. Finally, in 1898, Rimsky-Korsakov turned this Prologue into a separate one-act opera, Vera Sheloga.

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.
