' Cricket in December '
ERIC GILLETT
There was once a cricketer so keen that he kept his copies of the morning paper every day during the cricket season, filed them in order, and read one daily all through the winter, supplementing them, of course, from Wisden as soon as that indispensable work appeared. Eric Gillett is almost as keen.
This evening he is going to reminisce.
He intends to describe incidents that thrilled him last season, and in past seasons, in every kind of cricket. He will tell stories that he has shamelessly filched from cricketers of his acquaintance, and relate some odd experiences of cricket overseas.
Gillett's aim is to appeal to other cricketers (unemployed so unwillingly) who will perhaps turn aside from oiling their bats to spend fifteen minutes in listening to cricket stories which will inevitably remind them of better stories of their own.

(Section C)
Led by MARIE WILSON
Conducted by FRANK BRIDGE
St. Francis of Assisi, of whom legend tells that he loved all the creatures of the earth and sky and that he could speak with them, met a flock of birds who stopped and greeted him. He addressed them and spoke of their Creator, saying, ' He preserved your seed in the Ark, that your race might not perish ', and besought all birds' always to praise Him as they ought. The birds listened attentively, and, at the end, spreading their wings, bent their heads reverently before breaking into a great song of praise and joy at the tidings that they were also cared for by God as His creatures. At the end St. Francis gave them his blessing, and the birds flew off chirping with happiness.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
