From page 96 of ' When Two or Three '

: Through an Author's Eyes

Marjorie Bowen has probably written as many stories as any living author, and there can hardly be a magazine in which a story by her has not appeared. In four talks she is to tell listeners the why and wherefore of story writing. ' What made you think of it ' ? is one of the commonest questions she is asked. Her first talk, this morning, is the answer.
She made her name with her first novel, 'The Viper of Milan', ', which marked her as a new writer of distinction of historical romance. She has a passion for pseudonyms, and made a new name for herself as George Preedy not so long ago.

: Empire Parliamentary Association

Speech of Welcome to the Delegates by The Prime Minister, The Right Hon.
STANLEY BALDWIN and reply by The Honble. R. G. MENZIES , K.C., Attorney-General, and Minister for Industry of the Commonwealth of Australia following the Luncheon at Westminster
A Description of the scene will be given by EDWARD HALLIDAY
Today, for the first time since the Coronation of H.M. the King, a luncheon will be given by the Empire Parliamentary Association to the Representatives of the Overseas Legislatures of the Empire. The Speaker of the House of Commons, the Rt. Hon. E. A. FitzRoy , will preside, and will be supported by the Prime Minister of Great Britain and every available member of the British Cabinet.
The luncheon will constitute the welcome and opening ceremony for the delegates from eighteen overseas Legislatures, all of which have branches of the Association. It will be the most widely representative gathering of Empire statesmen and Parliamentarians that has been held up to the present time.
As to the broadcast angle, it is of interest that this notable gathering in an historic place is to be described by a painter of repute in Edward Halliday , who, it will be remembered, introduced the ' Artist at Work ' series a year or two ago.

Relayed from the Spa Royal Hall,
This famous band under its famous conductor used to broadcast from Covent Garden about ten years ago, but Herman Darewski formed it even earlier, in 1920. He was the first man to put a British band on the stage. A trial fortnight at the Alhambra resulted in a twenty-five weeks' engagement there, and twenty-five weeks at the Coliseum.
This year, for the sixth (and third consecutive) season, the band is the great attraction at the Royal Hall, Bridlington, second in size to the Albert Hall. Last year they gave four broadcasts ; this afternoon's is the first of twelve. Herman Darewski , composer of 3,000 songs, is one of the great personalities in the musical show world. At one time he had written the music of seven shows running simultaneously in London.

Conducted by ARTHUR WOOD
All the items are orchestrated by ARTHUR WOOD
Arthur Wood has been associated with some of the most successful musical plays of the last thirty years. Sidney Jones gave him his first chance in London to conduct that delightful comic opera My Lady Molly at Terry's Theatre in the Strand (long ago demolished). George Edwardes then engaged him to conduct Veronique at the Apollo Theatre.
After a trip to America with Véronique
Arthur Wood joined Robert Courtneidge's management, and conducted most of his productions, such as The Dairymaids and The Arcadians, Princess Caprice, Oh Oh ! Delphine and The Pearl Girl (the last mentioned gave Jack Hulbert his first chance).
After a year with Oscar Asche at His
Majesty's with Chu Chin Chow , when he relieved Percy Fletcher during his illness, Arthur Wood went to the Gaiety and conducted various popular productions, such as The Kiss Call and The Shop Girl, which ran for nearly two years. In 1922 Mr. Wood was appointed conductor at Daly's.

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.
