Interlude
2.5 Travel Talk
Eastern and Northern Europe
5-' Outward Bound '
A Special Broadcast from the ' Queen Mary '
Here is something that listeners in Schools have never heard before-a broadcast not only from a great liner, but from the biggest ship in the world on her maiden voyage.
They will be told how connection is established between shore and ship to make the broadcast possible, and will actually hear the human links in the chain of communication. The great liner will be described by John Snagge , who is making the voyage on the Queen Mary to New York. Then they will hear the actual noises of the ship-in the boiler room and engine room and propeller shaft tunnel. And they will hear about the fun and excitement of the voyage.
Then Captain Sir Edgar Britten , the captain, will come to the microphone to describe his job-that of navigating the giant ship across the Atlantic. He will be followed by the Chief Engineer, who will state briefly how he and his department are responsible for running her.
And listeners, as they hear her in mid-Atlantic, will be thrilled by the thought that British men and women made this Clyde-built liner, whose maiden voyage is a great event in world travel.

: Talk for Sixth Forms

Foreign Affairs-2
VERNON BARTLETT
Three weeks ago Sixth Forms listened to the first of two talks this term on Foreign Affairs by Mr. Vernon Bartlett , and this afternoon they are to hear the second. Vernon Bartlett is not only an expert on this intricate subject, but he is one of the most popular broadcasters. As long ago as August, 1927 (when his audience this afternoon were thinking of very different things), he broadcast a talk, ' Next Week at Geneva '. It was to be the prelude to two series of talks' The Way of the World ' and ' Foreign Affairs '—which were to go on continuously until, in March last year, he joined the staff of the News Chronicle. Two years ago he broadcast brilliant vignettes of ' Strong Men in Europe ', and last February contributed a fascinating talk on ' The Spice of Life '.

: ' In Your Garden'

C. H. MIDDLETON
This evening Mr. Middleton is to bring to the microphone Mr. M. C. Allwood to talk on carnations. Mr. Allwood is probably the greatest living authority on this popular flower, and has devoted the whole of his life to its development and improvement.
In addition to raising a great many fine new carnations, he has produced a whole series of wonderful hybrids, including Dianthus Sweet Wivelsfield, a cross between the sweet william and the pink ; also Dianthus Allwoodii, which combines the best qualities of pink and carnation.
His classic work, ' Carnations and all
Dianthus ', is generally accepted as the standard text-book on the subject.

Severn and Thames with a Canoe
1—The Start at Newtown
G. M. BOUMPHREY
This is the first of eight talks in which G. M. Boumphrey , the expert broadcaster but inexpert canoeist, is to describe his adventures in the trip he is making down Severn and Thames in a folding canoe. The start is from New- town, Montgomeryshire, the first stretch to Abermule Bridge is pretty exciting-the water rapid with shallows and rocks frequent. On down Severn ... Shrews-bury, Ironbridge, Bridgnorth, Worcester; possibly he will explore the tributaries Teme and Avon, and so to Gloucester. From here, where the water can be dangerous, he plans to take to the Gloucester and Berkeley canal and follow it until it joins the Stroudwater ; then overland to Cirencester. On reaching the Thames he is to drop down to Lechlade and on to his home at Mapledurham, north-west of Reading.
Though the journey is possible in a fortnight, he has no idea how long it will take him. He is to dawdle in the pleasant places, and will describe them and the inns he stops at and the adventures on the way.

New British Work
In this programme of contemporary British music there is one first performance—that of ' Lights Out' by Owen Mase. Composed to a text by Edward Thomas , the poet of the English countryside whose death in the war was a loss to English literature, the music (completed in 1933) reflects the calm, intimate spirit of the poem. The scoring is sober and restrained, at times to the point of bareness, and the composer uses a minimum of notes to achieve his effect. A point to be noticed is the occasional use of quarter-tones in the strings to create an impression of mystery or uncertainty and there is no time-signature in the score.
Composer of Film Music
W. G. Whittaker , whose ' Lyke-Wake Dirge ' and Pianoforte Quintet' Among the Northumbrian Hills' have both been published by the Carnegie Trust, is Gardiner Professor of Music at Glasgow, and Principal of the Scottish National Academy of Music. He is well known for his work as a conductor with the Armstrong College and Newcastle Bach Choir.
John Greenwood , the composer of 'Psalm 150', has written a good deal for the films as well as incidental music for the theatre. His ' Salute to Gustav Hoist ' was broadcast as recently as February 27, 1936.
Sir Granville Bantock 's 'The Sea
Reivers ' is based on Hebridean melodies. Written some fifteen years ago, it has never before been broadcast in its entirety.

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.
