: THE BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Leader, Alfred Barker
Conducted by CRAWFORD McNAIR
Richard WILSON (bass-baritone) Although no other European country can claim to have produced anything quite like our sparkling Gilbert and Sullivan operas, in France, the dramatist Scribe, and the composer, Auber, produced a series of light-hearted operas which are the nearest equivalent to Gilbert and Sullivan. Many of the Overtures appear regularly in programmes, that the operas themselves are so rarely heard.
The Bronze Horse is based on a Chinese subject. It was first performed in 1835.

: Sports talk: Women's Hockey

Marjorie Pollard
The team to represent England at women's hockey is chosen from those taking part in the inter-Territorial matches, England being divided into rive territories-West, South, North, Midland, and East. These matches have been played during the last fortnight, and this evening Marjorie Pollard hopes to discuss the England team.
She first played for the Midlands in 1921, and except for 1929 and 1930, when she 'retired', she has played in every game since. She has played for England thirty-seven times, and scored five out of the six winning goals against Germany last Easter in Berlin.
In 1932 she scored all six goals in the England v. Wales match, and in 1927 thirteen goals against Wales, twelve against U.S.A., and seven out of the eight against Ireland. Last year she played hockey and cricket at the Oval, and is believed to be the only person who has played two different games there in one year, unless it was a football-cricketer in the old, old days. She is editor of Women's Hockey and Women's Cricket.

A Reminiscent Programme
Arranged and Presented by MIRIAM FERRIS
Produced by ERNEST LONGSTAFFE
The Party of Radio Pioneers includes
TOMMY HANDLEY
ALMA VANE
JEAN ALLISTONE
JOHN RORKE
FLORENCE OLDHAM
FOSTER RICHARDSON and MIRIAM FERRIS
At the Piano, JEAN MELVILLE
THE B B C REVUE CHORUS and VARIETY ORCHESTRA
Conducted by ERNEST LONGSTAFFE
Last summer Miriam Ferris , among the most popular of radio pioneers, thought of the happy idea of getting some of the old hands together and broadcasting once again some of the songs and sketches they gave from Number 4 Studio, Savoy Hill , when broadcasting was young.
Tonight she is to present just such another programme with the same artists as before: Tommy Handley , who ten years ago made his name on the air in The Disorderly Room ; Jean Allistone , who first broadcast with him in Radio Radiance, and has long been happily married to him; Florence Oldham , who used to do sketches on the air with him up and down the country in between Savoy Hill shows ; Alma Vane , most delightful of soubrettes ; John Rorke , who must know more old songs than anyone on the air ; and finally Foster Richardson , who sang when he was ploughing with his father's horses, won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music, and fame in the Beecham Opera Company and on the air.
It is happy to think that these old favourites are to he accompanied tonight by an older favourite still, for with Herman Darewski and Will Hay , the popular Variety accompanist, Jean Melville, gave one of the earliest broadcasts from Marconi House.

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.
