C. H. Middleton
Listeners who have a lawn, whether a young one not growing up properly or an old one on the downhill grade, are always glad when C. H. Middle ton brings A. E. Burgess back to the microphone to give them advice. Middleton asks just the kind of questions that puzzle amateur gardeners, and Burgess always has an answer. This is not surprising seeing that he is Horticultural Superintendent to the Surrey County Council and their lawn expert. Today he is to speak on the maintenance of lawns, rather than on making new ones.

(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Warwick Braithwaite
Arnold Matters (baritone)
Australia and New Zealand have produced many fine musicians, particularly singers, who have won international fame. Both countries are represented in this evening's performance. The conductor, Warwick Braithwaite, comes from New Zealand. He studied under Harry Farjeon and Frederick Corder at the Royal Academy of Music, where he was a Goring Thomas Composition Scholar. Later, he went to Munich and studied conducting and composition at the Academy there. On his return to England, Mr. Braithwaite joined the O'Mara Opera Company as chorus-master, and since that time he has gained a high place among contemporary British conductors. He is best known now as one of the permanent conductors at Sadler's Wells.
Australian Singer
Arnold Matters, also one of the leading members of the Sadler's Wells company, comes from Australia. He was born in.Adelaide, and as a boy won several prizes in competition festivals, which made him decide to take up singing as a career. He soon won for himself a foremost place among Australian singers, and in addition to a great deal of solo and quartet work, he appeared with several leading artists, including Melba. He has many times appeared before the microphone of the Australian Broadcasting Commission. In 1930 Mr. Matters came to England and since then has well established himself, particularly in opera at Sadler's Wells.

An appeal on behalf of THE ROYAL
M.C., M.P.
This hospital was founded a hundred years ago, and specialises in the curing of cripples, especially crippled children. It has 170 beds in the London hospital and 314 beds at the open-air country branch at Stanmore, Middlesex. The hospital receives its cripples from all over the country as well as from remote parts of the Empire. There are 150,000 attendances of out-patients every year.
There could be no more important work and none more deserving of the help of all than that of giving, as its President, H.R.H. the Duke of Gloucester, has said, ' the innocent child-victims of deformity and crippling disease the chance, and almost the certainty, of growing up into healthy and useful men and women '.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Capt. Lord William Scott , M.C., M.P., [address removed]


Unknown: Capt. Lord William Scott

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.
