' Flying as a Rest Cure'
Ann Stafford
Ann Stafford , after a University career at Newnham and King's College (London), tried her hand at politics and commerce, and then settled down as a novelist and journalist. She lives in London and says that she spent most of last year having appendicitis and complications. She took up flying afterwards because she was not allowed to ride or walk and badly needed a new adventure to convince her that life was worth living.
She is fond of adventure, and listeners may remember the vivid account she and Jane Oliver gave on the air of a holiday they spent on horseback in the New Forest.

in a selection of his popular studies including
'Orange Blossoms'
' Old " 94 " On Time '
' The Charge of the Light Brigade '
At the Theatre Organ,
Reginald Foort
Produced by Ernest Longstaffe
This great favourite-surely one of the most brilliant actors ever to choose the Variety stage as the medium of his art-is to give three varied and representative pieces from' his repertoire: 'Orange Blossoms', a story of the East by Sax Rohmer. in which Bransby Williams gives a notable character study ; his own monologue, Old " 94 " On Time ', which he broadcast in August last year and in which he gives a whimsical sketch of an old man giving his opinion on time ; and finally, The Charge of the Light Brigade ' by Tennyson.

: WOLF-1

Posthumous Lieder sung by John McKenna (tenor)
Standchen (Alles wiegt die stille
Nacht)
Knabentod Nachruf
Da fahr ich still im Wagen Nachtgruss
After remaining in manuscript for over fifty years, some early songs of Hugo Wolf , dating from the period 1878-1883 have now been published and edited by Professor Dr. Helmut Schultz of the Musikwissenschaft Verlag in Vienna. The manuscripts were left as part of a legacy to a family with whom Wolf had been closely connected. Ernest Newman pointed out when these songs appeared last year that those listeners who do not already know their Wolf must beware of assuming that the Wolf represented in these songs is the real Wolf except in embryo ; but the seasoned student of him will find much material for thought in these songs.
Further recitals in this series will be broadcast as follows : Tuesday (Regional 9.40), Wednesday (Regional
7.30), Thursday (National 8.25), and Friday (National 6.25).

' Youth Hostels'
Howard Marshall and Others
What about this open-air business that has grown so enormously since the war ? Is it merely an escape from town life that does nobody any good, or is it opening up new worlds of experience and thought such as this town-bred generation badly needs ? For good or ill, the Youth Hostels Association with its sixty thousand members and its 260 hostels, where members stay for a shilling a night, plays a big part. Tonight Howard Marshall will discuss the subject with experienced hostellers.

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.
