: 'A School of Builders'

The story of S. Nicholas Grammar School, Cape Coast Castle, Gold Coast, by the Rev. A. J. KNIGHT , Headmaster The story of St. Nicholas Grammar
School, Cape Coast, Gold Coast, the public school for West African natives, begins in 1910. On January 10 of that year the first Bishop of Accra visited Cape Coast to found a school which might produce teachers, catechists, and priests for the English Church Mission'.
The school began with only twenty-nine pupils, collected with difficulty, and was hardly known outside its owe Mission. It grew very quickly and today stands open to all, without distinction of race or creed, and draws boys not only from the Gold Coast and Ashanti, but even beyond from Togo-land, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, and the Uclgian Congo. Though not yet a quarter of a century old the school is already proud of a number of Old Boys who hold important positions on the Gold Coast.
At present the number of boys on the roll is limited to about two hundred by the capacity of the buildings. But the boys themselves in their spare time are building a new School at Adisadel, two miles out of Cape Coast.

: Chamber Music ARNOLD MATTERS (baritone) THE NEW LONDON TRIO:

David Wise (violin) ; Norina Semino (violoncello); John Pauer (pianoforte)
Trio in A minor Ravel i. Modere; 2. Assez vif; 3. Passacaille; 4. Final
Faurd once said that his ideal of chamber music style is ' clarity of thought, sobriety and purity of form, sincerity, and disdain of big effects.' Rave! is a true disciple of Faure, under whom he studied composition. All these qualities together with a fresh and charming melodic invention and a delicate and colourful sense of harmony are to be found in Ravel's chamber works, of which the String Quartet in F and the Piano Trio in A minor are outstanding examples. The latter was composed in 1915, and is imbued with that gentle romantic feeling which Ravel appears to have repudiated in his more recent works.

The first Baptist Church at Yeovil was established in 1668, four years after the renewal of the Elizabethan Conventicle Act, which made dissenting worship a criminal offence, punishable with imprisonment or transportation. One of the first ministers was John Miller , who fought under Monmouth. When William III passed through Yeovi! in 1688, he offered Miller a living in the Established Church; Miller refused but was allowed to continue his ministry.
Services were first held in a barn and this, enlarged and adapted, remained in use till 1810, when a church was erected. This building was replaced in 1828 by another that has been twice enlarged. It is now one of the best equipped Baptist churches in the West Country.

: The Week's Good Cause

An appeal on behalf of The National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty, by Ferguson, leader of Ferguson's Gang
All sorts and conditions of people have broadcast appeals on Sunday evenings. Celebraties in every walk of life have enlisted our sympathy for Good Causes. But the National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty is to have the advocacy of a mystery man ; Ferguson of the now famous Gang.
Itis some years since Ferguson's Gang first sent masked men and women to the offices of the National Trust with bags of money or banknotes for the purchase of properties in which they were interested. Thanks to the Gang, the Trust has been able to buy and repair Shalford Old Mill, an interesting water-mill near Guildford, the Mayon Cliffs between Sennen and Land's End, and the Old Town Hall at Newtown in the Isle of Wight, an eighteenth century Hall (now standing among fields), which is all that remains of a ' famous ' rotten borough ' that returned two members to Parliament up to the time of the first Reform Bill, and was represented by the first Duke of Marlborough and George Canning among others.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
