' Some Burmese Yesterdays '
Lady HOLBERTON
Lady Holberton has the rare gift of conjuring up memories so that others can see the pictures that glow in her mind. Rangoon twenty-five years ago, when pariah dogs crept snarling from under ramshackle wooden huts, built on piles, to fight for bits and scraps..... The beauty of Rangoon, seen at the Festival of Lights, round the Schwe Dagon , the fairy gold pagoda, under the full moon of Tabourg. Rangoon today -a great cosmopolitan city.
Lady Holberton will be remembered for her talks in ' Travellers All' and ' Fashionable Crazes ' Her husband, Sir Edgar Holberton , was for many years British Consul for Siam in Rangoon, and she had rare opportunities to see behind the scenes in the Orient.

CORINTHIANS v. ROYAL NAVY
A running commentary on part of the match by F. N. S. CREEK from the Royal Naval Barracks ground,
Chatham and Rugby League
WIGAN v. ST. HELEN'S RECS.
A running commentary on the last part of the game by F. H. PEMBERTON from the Rugby Football ground, Wigan
We start in the south. The football ground is in the Barracks. Above the red-brick buildings rise the chimneys and cranes of Chatham Dockyard. Along one side of the ground is an avenue up and down which sailors on duty may be marching, envious of their pals who, in their overcoats, will be cheering on the Navy in their match against the amateur team with the most magical name in Association football.
We go north. Wigan. Spectators in caps. All keenly watching the Rugby
League game, with its thirteen players a side, its speed, its individual rules. St. Helen's Recs. (Recreations) are so called to distinguish them from St. Helen's Rugby Football Club.
Then back to Chatham for the finish of the soccer match.

: Instrumental Solos THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section C)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
TERENCE MACDONAGH (oboe)
RICHARD NEWTON (bassoon)
PAT WHELAN (saxophone)
Behind the two words ' Instrumental Solos ' lies the need for a little explanation. Many programmes contain instrumental solos, but in this case the programme consists entirely of these, and what is more interesting, the soloists are all members of the BBC Orchestra.
When listening to the latter one may enjoy the ' ensemble ' and yet, perhaps, lose sight of the fact that many of its members are first-class solo players, and the object of this programme is to remind listeners of this fact.

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.
