Sea Story
@from ' Cruises and Cargoes ' by W. W. Jacobs read by Frank Birch

@ by HIS MAJESTY THE KING of EX-SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN in Hyde Park Round about 2 p.m. today the largest parade of ex-Service men and women ever held in Hyde Park will assemble to be reviewed by His Majesty the King. The largest parade until now has numbered about 20,000 ; today's muster will be four times that number.
Of the 80,000, some 56,000 will come from the British Legion, and the remainder from a number of regiflar regimental associations and independent associations, such as the Old Contemptibles, and a contingent from St. Dunstan's. The Navy, the Army, the Royal Air Force, the Nursing Services, the Women's Legion drivers, and all the other Auxiliary Services will be represented, among them, women who were known twenty years ago by nicknames familiar to everyone - the Fannies and Wrafs, the Waacs and the Wrens. Nor will a single person be there who did not serve during the war, and it is conceivable that this will be the last time these veterans will ever meet together to be inspected by their Sovereign.
At about 2.25 the scene of this poignant reunion will be set by F. H. Grisewood , himself an ex-Service man who was wounded on the Somme. At about 2.30 Their Majesties will arrive on the parade ground. The service will be conducted by the Dean of Bristol, who served as a trooper in the Boer War and was Chaplain at the Royal Military College, Camberley, during the Great War, and when it is finished, the inspection will begin. Listeners will hear music played by the bands of the Scots Guards and the Welsh Guards, and with the inspection still going on, the broadcast will end.

The BBC Midland Orchestra
Leader,Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward
One of the most charming of Holst's orchestral works is the ' Somerset
Rhapsody', the score of which is prefaced by a note which tells us that it 'was written in 1906 at the request of Cecil Sharp, to whom it is dedicated, and was rewritten in the following year. The work is founded on folk songs collected by Cecil Sharp in Somerset. The first is " The Sheep Shearing Song", a long pastoral melody played first by the oboe and then by violins. This is followed by a marching song, " High Germany " ; "0 Polly, love, 0 Polly, the rout has now begun, And we must march away at the beating of the drum." The third melody is " The Lovers' Farewell ", played first by the 'cellos. The climax of the piece is reached when " High Germany " is played by all the wind instruments, the strings entering afterwards with another tune to the same words. The " Farewell " is repeated, and as the music becomes quieter the opening " Sheep Shearing Song" reappears. At one

The Bells

: Order of Service

Hymn, Strong Son of God, immortal love (S.P. 648)
Psalm xcvi
Lesson, John viii, 28-36
Hymn, 0 Life that makest all things new (S.P. 602)
Address by the Rev. Canon
V. F. STORR , Vicar of St. Margaret's, Westminster, and Sub-Dean of Westminster
Hymn, 0 for a thousand tongues to sing (A. and M. 522 ; S.P. 595)
Organist, The Rev. H. McGowan
Cromer Parish Church, standing in the heart of the town, is one of the historical churches of England, its nave being nearly five centuries old and forming a link in a chain which stretches far back into Christian history. The tower-to the top of the pinnacle 160 feet high-is the highest ' tower ' in Norfolk, only the spire of Norwich Cathedral being higher. Outside is a smaller tower with a platform, said to have been used for flares to warn ships at sea before the erection of the present lighthouse. There is a peal of six bells which will be heard at the beginning of the broadcast, while the organ was once in the abbey at Bath.
Such is the church in which is to be held the tenth Cromer Conven tion organised by the Anglican Evangelical Group Movement, which stands for the Liberal Evangelical school of thought in the Church of England, and desires to make its full contribution to the life of the Church in these times of changing thought and outlook.

An appeal on behalf of THE IVORY CROSS
This Fund was founded in the early days of the Great War to enable men rejected as dentally uofit to join the Services. Subsequently The great demand for dental aid led to the reorganisation as now constituted.
The general undermining of health resulting from continuous poisoning by decayed teeth is recognised by all health authorities to be the source of many distressing diseases. There are some 15,000,000 necessitous persons for whom no provision -State or otherwise-exists, and fl5,000 annually is needed.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addessed 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.
