: A ROLLING STONE

Stephen Wyatt
Here is an illuminating talk by a man who went on the road for the first time in 1923 to earn a living-a man who has tramped both in this country and in many others, and has the courage to admit that he has fared better as a vagabond. But there is no glamour in his picture of the professionals of. the road, much as he admires them. He can tell you what a ' funkurri mush ' is, and a ' tiger hunter ', and of the ' moll ' that works for them and must be able to spin a tale. He earned his living as a ' street chanter ' for a while with Durham Jock, and at another time partnered a street singer who once had been a member of a distinguished academy. Stephen Wyatt is typical of the men who were his colleagues of the road, and possesses that attribute essential of a first-rate broadcaster, a good line of chat.

: THE RATCLIFF HIGHWAY

Those taking part are :
Eugene Leahy
J. Adrian Byrne
Roy Emerton
Philip Wade
Dorothea Webb
Elizabeth Gilbert
The programme has been arranged by Thomas Burke and is produced by H. L. Morrow
Once known as the gayest and most notorious street in London, the Ratcliff Highway — now prosaically called St. George Street, Stepneyis to suffer further degradation. A vivid picture of the Highway in its. nineteenth-century heyday is given by Thomas Burke in a short article introducing his programme, which will be found on page 6. But now the old houses and shops are to come down, the old ghosts are to be laid in the dust of destruction. Before memory, too, has crumbled away, tonight's broadcast will try to evoke the spirit of the past in a dramatic reconstruction.

: RESPONSIBILITIES OF EMPIRE—1

by the Prime Minister,
The Right Hon.
STANLEY BALDWIN i
This is the first of ten talks in a series designed primarily for the Empire, every unit of which will hear each talk either at the time it is broadcast or recorded afterwards. British listeners may drop in, as it were, and listen. The idea behind the series is that this is a time in our history when Britons, both at home and overseas, are thinking about the Mother country. What are our responsibilities to ourselves and to the rest of the world ?
A number of distinguished speakers are to give the broadcasts week by week. It is fitting that the first speaker is the Prime Minister of Great Britain, who, by a happy coincidence, will have broadcast twice in the same week.

Haydn Wood 's setting of the famous littlepoem ' Lochinvar ', from Scott's ' Marmion ', was written about the year 1911, and was first performed with great success in Queen's Hall by the Edward Mason Choir. A short time previously Mr. Wood had written (for the Manx Festival of 1910) a choral work called 'The Phynodderee and following in this vein came ' Young Lochinvar ' in the succeeding year. It is a charming work for chorus and orchestra with many graphic touches, and it is ' grateful ' to sing. (Poem by Richard Barham, from Ingoldsby Legends)
Robert Chignell , who has for so long been associated with the BBC as a composer of dramatic music, has had a distinguished career. Born at Romsey in 1882, he played the violin for two years in the orchestra which Elgar used to conduct at Worcester. In 1904 Chignell won a double scholarship at the Royal College of Music, where he studied singing Garcia and composition under Stanford. He then went to Paris for a year, and in 1910 distinguished himself as a singer with the Beecham Opera Company at Covent Garden.
Chignell's compositions include about 250 songs, fifty military band arrangements, and numerous choral and orchestral works. His picturesque and melodious cantata ' The Jackdaw of Rheims ' was composed in 1907, while he was still a student at the Royal College.

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.
