: ' FIGHT WITH A SHARK'

Noel H. Kinch
Noel Kinch , a deep-sea fisherman, was awarded the Stanhope Gold Medal for the bravest deed of 1936. He rescued a drowning shipmate off the coast of Iceland, and had to fight a shark with his right hand for forty minutes while he held the man, whose life he saved, in his left. Men like Kinch are men of action, reluctant to speak of the things they have done, and very often inarticulate in expressing them. F. H. Grise wood will come to the microphone to try to draw him out.

In place of the usual weekly service at this hour from St. Paul's a special Empire Service of Youth will be broadcast from Westminster Abbey, at which the Archbishop of Canterbury will give the address. To this will come the Youth of the Empire from near and far, including 300 students from Canada, representing some 260 schools. Contingents are also coming from British territory in every part of the two hemispheres, while members of the British communities in China, Japan, Czechoslovakia, Irak, Egypt, and the Azores will also be among the congregation. Several of the cathedrals, including Canterbury, York, and Winchester, are hoping to arrange similar services at the same hour, at which the Archbishop's address can be received from Westminster, while many other denominations are also holding similar services in their own cathedrals, churches, or chapels. The Rev. M. E. Aubrey , Moderator of the Federal Council of Evangelical Free Churches, is collaborating on behalf of the Free Churches.

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.
