: THE KRUGER NATIONAL PARK

(National Game Reserve of the Union of South Africa)
A descriptive broadcast relayed from the Transvaal
The speakers will include
Lieut.-Colonel
J. Stevenson-Hamilton ,
Warden of the Game Reserve
(Arranged in co-operation with the South African Broadcasting
Corporation)
The Kruger National Park, South Africa's great sanctuary for wild life, covers over 8,000 square miles on the Transvaal border of Portuguese West Africa. It was originally the Sabi Game Reserve, which was inaugurated by President Kruger in 1898. Shortly afterwards the Boer War broke out, and between 1899 and 1902 the Reserve suffered severely, shooting and poaching going on indiscriminately. Twelve years later the outbreak of the Great War was the cause of a similar setback, but in 1922 the railways instituted tours of the Reserve, and the following year Lieut.-Colonel Stevenson-Hamilton, the present Warden (who will take part in this programme), suggested an official inspection, which was an immediate success. In
1928, the Park was thrown open to the public, and now there are some 800 miles of roads and a dozen rest camps where visitors can stay.
It is hoped to broadcast some of the actual noises from the Park.

: A RECITAL

Elena Gerhardt (soprano)
Angus Morrison (pianoforte)
Elena Gerhardt was born in Leipzig and in her early teens became a student at the Conservatoire there. Her great gifts attracted the attention of Nikisch, the famous conductor of the Gewandhaus concerts, and when she was eighteen he introduced her to the public in a Lieder recital at which he accompanied her at the piano. Not long afterwards Mme. Gerhardt, accompanied by Nikisch, made her debut in London, and since then, except during the war period, she has been a regular visitor.

He was the winner of an open scholarship to the Royal College of Music, where he studied the piano under Harold Samuel and composition under Thomas Dunhill and Vaughan Williams.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE ARTISTS' GENERAL BENEVOLENT
INSTITUTION by Dame LAURA KNIGHT , D.B.E.,
R.A., LL.D.
The Artists' General Benevolent Institution was established in 1814 and incorporated by Royal Charter in 1842. Formed for the purpose of helping professional artists (painters, sculptors, engravers, architects, and so on), it has done much to smooth over the difficulties caused by temporary distress or unmerited neglect, as well as those due to illness, blindness, and old age. Relief is also given to the widows and orphans of artists. The Institution is mainly dependent on voluntary subscriptions to meet its expenditure, and each year adds to the number of those in need.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

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.
