: A Pianoforte Recital

by LESLIE ENGLAND
Leslie England, who appeared as soloist at the opening Prom last season, was born in Barrow-in-Furness. Even at the tender age of five he showed remarkable musical gifts and aroused much interest among visiting pianists, including Mark Hambourg. Coming to London when he was eight years of age, he studied the piano privately for some years under various professors, until he succeeded in winning an open scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music. Mr. England is now on the teaching staff of the Royal Academy. He made a Scandinavian tour in 1927 and also toured South Africa in 1925 and 1929.

The Traitor Englishman who Piloted the Dutch Fleet up the Medway
ARTHUR BRYANT
Late in the seventeenth century, when Sir Christopher Wren was superintending the building of the new palace at Greenwich, he made the acquaintance of an old sea captain living there on the King's bounty. This man was a Thames waterman who had piloted the Dutch fleet up the Medway and who had later received not only the King's pardon, but a pension.
The reputation of King Charles II has suffered severely from the humiliating invasion of the Medway by the Dutch, and it is not without significance that the man who betrayed his King, and acted as pilot to the Dutch fleet, was forgiven.
Arthur Bryant is a recognised authority on this period and its problems and personalities, and is the author of ' The England of Charles 11 ' and ' King Charles II. ' Listeners who remember his absorbingly interesting series ' The National Character ' will welcome his return to the microphone.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An Appeal on behalf of THE BRITISH RED CROSS SOCIETY, for funds for Red Cross work in Ethiopia by the Rev. Canon H. R. L. SHEPPARD, C.H., D.D.
On the outbreak of hostilities between Italy and Ethiopia, the International Red Cross Committee at Geneva requested all national Red Cross Societies to assist in the work of providing for the relief of the sick and wounded of the combatant armies. Italy notified the International Red Cross Committee that her provision of medical supplies and comforts was sufficient to meet any eventuality in Africa. Abyssinia asked for all and any kind of relief for her sick and suffering.
The British Red Cross Society immediately associated itself with the appeal for funds already launched by the Archbishop of Canterbury, as a result of which it was possible to organise, jointly with the British Ambulance Service in Ethiopia, a Red Cross Unit, consisting of doctors, orderlies, and transport personnel, with full medical and surgical equipment. This sailed in November for the Southern War Zone. It is being followed by a smaller Unit for the Northern Zone.
Funds for the maintenance of these Units, the cost of which is £2,100 per month, are urgently needed.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to the Rev. Canon H. R. L. Sheppard, C.H., D.D., [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.

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.
