2.5 Discovering England
'Yorkshire, 8-The Industrial West Riding'
PHYLLIS BENTLEY
This afternoon the final talk in this exhaustive series on Yorkshire is to be given by a famous novelist who was born in Yorkshire, was educated in Yorkshire, and is living in Yorkshire. Many of her novels have Yorkshire as a background-her recent book ' Freedom, Farewell ! ' and ' Inheritance ' which made her name.
She is to tell listeners about the two great industries of the West Riding— the story of the cloth trade and the story of steel. She will talk about home life there and the West Riding at play-brass bands and singing, pigeon flying, ' knur and spell'.

Anthem, This is the record of John
(Gibbons)
This is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him : Who are thou ? And he confessed and denied not and said plainly, I am not the Christ. And they asked him: What are thou then ? are thou Elias ? And he said : I am not. Alt thou that prophet ? And he answered : No. Then said they unto him: Who are thou ? that we may give an answer unto them that sen' us, What sayest thou of thyself ? And he said ; I am the voice of him that crieth in the wilderness ; Make straight the way of the Lord
Hymn, Immortal, invisible, God only wise (E.H. 407)

What do you think ?
A Visit to Denmark
EVAN GRIFFITHS
Twenty-five unemployed miners have just come back from a visit to Denmark. The men are all members of Unemployed Clubs in the Rhondda area, and : arrangements were made by Danish 1 business men and others to send them over to Denmark to sing for a number of audiences. They broadcast from Kalundborg, and also gave an hour's performance in the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, besides acting as the choir on a Sunday night at the English Church in Copenhagen.
This afternoon Evan Griffiths , who was one of the party, is to talk about some of the Danish social institutions that they have seen, rather than about the tour in particular. He has broadcast before now in the Western programmes.

Canterbury Festival
The BBC will again participate, as it has done for the last seven years, in the Canterbury Festival, which takes place this year from June 20-27. This participation began in a small way in 1929 when Dr. Boult and the old Wireless Symphony Orchestra went down and played at the Festival ; in the following year the newly-created Symphony Orchestra took ipart in the Festival, and ever since then it has been an annual event.
The Festival itself is the creation of the ' Friends of Canterbury Cathedral', a society which was founded by Dean Bell about 1925, and the proceeds of the Festival are devoted to the Fund for the upkeep of the Cathedral. The Society has a large membership, and the Festivals attract many visitors from all over the country as well as from abroad.
Picture of a Castle
Arnold Bax describes his tone poem , Tintagel ' as follows : ' This work is only in the broadest sense programme music. The composer's intention is simply to offer a tonal impression of the castle-crowned cliff of (now sadly degenerate) Tintagel, and more especially of the long distances of the Atlantic, as seen from the cliffs of Cornwall on a sunny, but not windless, summer day. The literary and traditional associations of the scene also enter into the scheme. The music opens, after a few introductory bars, with a theme, given out on the brass, which may be taken as representing the ruined castle, now so ancient and weatherworn as to seem an emanation of the rock upon which it is built. The subject is worked to a broad diatonic climax and is followed by a long melody for strings, which may suggest the serene and almost limitless spaces of the ocean.
' After a while, a more restless mood begins to assert itself, as though the sea were rising, bringing with it a new sense of stress, thoughts of many passionate and tragic incidents in the tales of King Arthur and King Mark, and others among the men and women of their time.... and the piece ends as it began, with a picture of the castle still proudly fronting the sun and wind of centuries.'

: SYDNEY HOWARD in 'Household Hints'-3 *

During Sydney Howard's recent visit to South Africa he and his wife stayed with Gracie Fields at Sea Point when she was paying her return visit to Capetown the week before she sailed for home. ' It was a grand reunion', he. says. 'Sea Point is a lovely spot. We took each other's pictures, signed each other's autograph books.'
Tonight in the third of his six solo broadcasts he is to talk about gardening, and no doubt C. H. Middlcton will listen and have many a laugh. But Sydney Howard can be serious about flowers as is indicated on page 1 2.

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.
