@ My Early Motor Races '
Lt.-Col. C. JARROTT, O.B.E.
Here is a talk by a man who was among the pioneers not only of motor racing, but of the motor-cycle and motor car-pioneers without whom there would be no touring or pleasure cars for John Citizen today. Lieut.-Colonel C. Jarrott took part in the first motor race ever held in this country. It took place as long ago as 1897 on a private cycle track at Sheen House, Richmond Park. He won the race on one of the first motor-bicycles ever made, but as he admits, he had only one opponent-who broke down. The cycle was just over one horse-power ; the speed-very fast for those days-twenty-seven miles an hour.
He took part in all the famous international motor-car road races on the Continent in the early part of this century-Paris to Berlin, in a forty horse-power car weighing nearly two tons, the winner, Fournier, a French-man, coming out with an average speed of forty-four miles an hour.....
The next year—1902—Colonel Jarrott ran second in a 540-mile race over the hard roads of Northern France in blinding rain and on a skidding surface. That same year, in a seventy horse-power car, weighing only twenty hundredweight, he rode a dramatic race from Paris to Vienna which he will describe in this evening's talk.

: THE CONTINENTALS

Presented by BORIS YVAIN in Songs and Dances
This new orchestra under Boris Yvain , with its flair for tangos, rumbas, Viennese waltzes, and gypsy music, has won great popularity since its first broadcast in May. The vocalist and announcer is the beautiful and gifted Carmen del Rio , who, herself half South American, has sung all over South America, and was the first woman to broadcast out there, from Buenos Aires. Few broadcasters are more accomplished. She first trained as a pianist, and speaks five languages—Spanish, French, Italian, German, and, of course, English. Besides her broadcasts with the Continentals, Carmen del Rio has been on the air three times during the year she has been in Kngland, with recitals of Spanish songsat the piano.

DOUGLAS VINE and ALGY MOORE with new Comedy Songs
TOOTS POUNDS
JOHNSON CLARK the Sportsman Ventriloquist
THE FOUR CROTCHETS
RONALD GOURLEY
Entertainer
Ronald Gourley has been described as ' The world's greatest blind pianist, siffieur, and composer '. He is one of the great radio favourites, especially with children. His broadcasts in the London Children's Hour go back to he very beginning, and he is always high up in Request Week.
This is the first broadcast, on the other hand, of the Four Crochets. Their forte is harmony singing after the style of the Mills Brothers, but with their own individuality. Charles Brewer first heard them on a gramophone record. Two popular radio acts are back on the air after a comparatively short absence. Johnson Clark , the sportsman ventriloquist, was on the air in January, and Vine and Moore, with their comedy songs and patter, last broadcast in April.
Toots Pounds, having already made a name on the music-halls, spent three years in Italy singing in opera. She returned last year to broadcasting and several concerts in this country. She was in Austria for a short time and gave some popular concerts in Vienna. Since her enormously successful broadcast act with Robert Chisholm in June, she has produced a brand new act. It has met with great success and they are shortly to appear at the Palladium.

: Excerpts from the Southern Command Tidworth Tattoo

Item 5
MASSED BANDS of the Seventeen Regiments in the Southern Command enter the arena to a Slow March ' Preobajenski '—one which was presented in manuscript by the late Czar of Russia as Colonel of the Regiment to the 2nd Dragoons, the Royal Scots Greys, and has never previously been played by any assemblage of Massed Bands in this country. After the first movement the Bands break into a quick march ' Action Front', by Blankenburg, changing to ' Sing as we go ' before they halt to render Hero'd's ' Zampa '. Their exit is made to Mornay's 56th Brigade March, for which special side-drum parts have been written.

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.
