: THE BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Leader, Alfred Barker
Conducted by CRAWFORD McNAIR When Weber was scarcely more than a boy he was given the post of conductor of the Opera of Breslau. Within a year, at the age of eighteen, he had made his third attempt at opera, composing some numbers to a libretto called Rdbezahl, written by the manager of the theatre. Weber had the patience to set to music only three numbers of the opera, including an overture. He then forgot all about it for six years, but later, on holiday in Switzerland, he looked again at the MS. of the overture, found it good, retitled it ' The Ruler of Spirits ', and conducted it on his return to Vienna at a brilliantly successful concert on an easily-remembered date, November 11, 1811.

Lawn Tennis
The Umpire's View NORMAN L. DABBS
There is both more and less in lawn tennis umpiring than one might think. Unlike soccer, a tennis umpire has no right to over-rule the linesmen, even if he discovers that the latter were asleep. On the other hand, in the early stages of many tournaments, the umpire has to act as linesman as well, and in this way he can often make or ruin the tournament.
Norman Dabbs has seen all the big players in important matches, and will illustrate his talk by examples that many people may remember when he calls attention to them.

: ' Goodbye, Mr. Chips '

A Radio Play by JAMES HILTON and BARBARA BURNHAM , based on the Novel by James Hilton
Characters
(Masters)
The Scene is Brookfield School in the Fen Country
Production by BARBARA BURNHAM
This play is the saga of a schoolmaster-one Mr. Chipping, commonly known as "Chips". He comes to Brookfield School in 1870-a very ordinary young man. He survived the Boer War and the Great War. What happened to him, how he hung on, how his character grew and his appearance declined, until at last through fate he came to be Head of Brookfield, identified with it, inseparable from it, is told in the play-a play in which the story matters least of all. " Chips " is what matters : an individualist and a character, and or.e that may well win radio fame.'
The above note appeared in THE
RADIO TIMES of January 18, 1935, and Good-bye, Mr. Chips, produced three days later, proved to be one of the most popular plays of the year.
' Goodbye, Mr. Chips' was broadcast in the Regional programme last night

: Down to the Sea in Ships-2

' Sea Harvests - 1, Into Deep Water
Wynn THOMAS
From April to June this year eleven talks on Sea Communications dealt with everything appertaining to the Mercantile Marine. Today the series ' Down to the Sea in Ships ' passes on to fishing, and in an introductory talk Mr. Wynn Thomas is to describe the three divisions of the industry : inshore fishing, herring fishing, and trawling. He will show how they are related to each other, and in discussing some of the problems of marketing, he will stress the point that in spite of the name Sea Harvests, it is a case of reaping what you don't sow ; on the other hand it is the most difficult harvest to bring to market...
Mr. Wynn Thomas started at the Board of Education; went to the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries ; became Principal in the Fisheries Department; and is now Assistant Secretary on the Agricultural side of the Ministry. He has been joint secretary to each of the two fishery commissions : the Committee of the Fishery Industry of the Economic Advisory Council, and the Sea Fish Commission which has just published its report on white fish.
Eight weekly talks by various experts are to follow today's introduction ; then a feature programme and finally a summary will bring ' Sea Harvests ' to a close on October 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.
