Interlude
2.5 Travel Talk
' Southern India'
F. McDERMOTT
Listeners are to hear more of Captain McDermott's adventures during the world tour that he recently completed. He went to the broadcasting studio at Madras, listened to a broadcast to schools there, and could not understand a word of it because it was given in Tamil, the language that most of the school-children speak. Then, after visiting the strange and wild fisher folk of the district, he started on his journey northwards again. Today, among other things, he will describe an Indian railway station, and what it is like to travel on an Indian train.

(Empire Programme)
Of all the days within the week
I dearly love but one day,
And that's the day that comes between Saturday and a Monday.
That is the motif of this rollicking revue which will introduce all the different people in a typical office-the shorthand-typists, the cleaner, the office boy, the boss, and so forth -and will show how they spend their week-ends. On Saturday evening some of them go to a dance. On Sunday the freedom from office routine continues : there is tennis for some, the river for others. Without a doubt this Friday-afternoon revue should make listeners long for tomorrow.

: In Your Garden

'Roses'
C. H Middleton and Courtney Page
C. H Middleton is to bring to the microphone one of the most important figures in the rose world to talk about roses. Courtney Page has been Secretary of the National Rose Society for over twenty years. When he took over, the membership was 3,000; under his initiative and enthusiasm it has grown to 15,000.
In 1920, a well-known rose grower at Portadown, Northern Ireland, introduced a new rose and called it after him. The 'Courtney Page ' is scarlet-crimson, sweet-scented, and was very popular in its day. A drawing of it is reproduced on the previous page.

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.
