: Sports Talk 'The Davis Cup-Then and Now'

FRANK L. RISELEY
This evening listeners are to hear a topical talk by Mr. Frank L. Riseley, who was reserve in the Davis Cup team thirty years ago, and surely no one can know more about this Blue Riband of lawn tennis than he does.
The competition for the Cup started thirty-five years ago, and its name originated through its donor-Mr. Dwight F. Davis , then one of the finest exponents of the game in America, who offered the Cup for competition among the nations of the world. At that time only two countries could seriously contest it-the United States of America and the British Isles. The third time we challenged America, we succeeded in beating them by four matches to one. The following year, Austria, Belgium and France entered the competition. This year some thirty-five countries entered.
Naturally the fortunes of the competing countries have always depended on any one country's great players. Thirty years ago the British Isles had the Dohertys, S. H. Smith , A. W. Gore , H. Roper Barrett , and Frank L. Riseley. Then Australasia produced Norman Brooks and A. F. Wilding. Between 1920 and 1927 the great Tilden helped to make things invincible for America. Then those brilliant players, Borotra, Brugnon, Cochet, and Lacoste, kept the Cup in France for six years. Such is the luck of the game.

An All Star Variety Programme including :
NOEL COWARD
GERTRUDE LAWRENCE
ERNA SACK
JACK MACKINTOSH
CHARLOTTE GREENWOOD
THE STREET SINGER
ELISABETH WELCH
BRIAN LAWRENCE AND
HIS DANCE ORCHESTRA
THE BBC
THEATRE ORCHESTRA
Conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON
Here is a Variety programme of international stars, glittering from first to last. Noel Coward (broadcasting in a Variety programme for the first time) and Gertrude Lawrence are to sing Noel Coward 's songs. They acted together in Private Lives both at the Phoenix Theatre, London, in 1930, and the Times Square, New York, the following year.
Charlotte Greenwood , the famous
American comedienne and film star, came over to England three years ago to appear in Wild Violets at Drury Lane. She is now in Gay Deceivers at the Gaiety. Film fans will remember how funny she was in Happy Landing, and how even funnier she was in Palmy Days.
Erna Sack , operatic star in Germany, has come over for tonight's broadcast. She is said to have the highest coloratura voice in the world. Arthur Tracy , ' the Street Singer,' made his first appearance in England at the Palladium, a week ago, but his voice is well known over here through his recordings of ' hit' tunes. At the age of ten he was singing along the streets in the slums of Philadelphia.
Elisabeth Welch and Brian Lawrence need no introduction to listeners. The former, who is now appearing in Glamorous Night, has been featured in ' People You Hear', and the latter will have his turn there shortly. Yet another unusual feature in this super-programme is the inclusion of Jack Mackintosh , who is first cornet and doubles on the trumpet in the BBC Symphony Orchestra. He was recruited from the St. Hilda Colliery Band, in which he was cornet soloist for many years. He is one of the finest cornet players in Great Britain.

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.
