: 'Father Noah'

A Play of 1918 by GEOFFREY WHITWORTH
This series of little Biblical dramas began in October last year with the first of a trio of plays by Mona Swann. To-night's play, Father Noah, was written by Geoffrey Whitworth during the war, in 1918, and, like the author's Haunted Houses, has been a great favourite with amateur societies.
The writing is on a very high leve' and has won the praise of the leading critics. Nothing is forgotten on the ark, where there is even fresh earth for the worms, and there is instant appeal in Noah's little grandchild Rachel.
' The whole world that God created is in the walls of this ark', and the terrible thought comes to Noah when his sons quarrel over their inheritance: ' Is the world worth saving ? ' There is imagination and the essence of drama in Geoffrey Whitworth 's play from the opening and through the crisis until the fall of the curtain.

: A Recital

CHARLES PANZERA (baritone)
ARTHUR BENJAMIN (pianoforte)
Berceuse, Ma poupee chérie. .de Sévérac
Charles Panzera , one of the finest French singers living, began his musical career in the most romantic way. When the War broke out he had had only a superficial musical education, but he was fond of singing and used to sing with his comrades in the trenches. Then one day while on leave in Paris, he happened to be passing the Conservatoire of Music. Some sudden impulse made him step inside and-he himself hardly knows how-he found himself in the presence of Gabriel Faur6. Faure heard him sing and was struck by his powers. Before he returned to the front, Panzera had passed the entrance examination of the Conservatoire, though it was only after the signing of the Armistice that he was able to begin to study.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An Appeal on behalf of THE MUSICIANS' BENEVOLENT FUND by VISCOUNTESS SNOWDEN
The Musicians' Benevolent Fund is a registered charity for the assistance of sick, aged, and necessitous members of the musical profession. It is supported entirely by voluntary subscriptions and helps every class of musician in Great Britain.
Today thousands of musicians are unemployed, principally because of the advance in mechanical music. Their distress is particularly acute just now with the approach of winter, and the Musicians' Benevolent Fund is endeavouring to relieve the hopeless outlook of musicians in their declining years, and to save them from the infirmary or workhouse.
At the present moment the Musicians'
Benevolent Fund is carrying on With a debt of £4,000 owing to the constant drain on its slender resources.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed].

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.
