A running commentary by Major G. Phipps-Hornby from Hurlingham
Today's polo match is the piece de resistance of the Indian Empire Garden Party to be held at Hurlingham-an occasion which gives those who have served, or are serving, in the Indian Civil Service and the Indian Army a chance to meet. It is understood that the All-India team will consist of Rao Rajah Hanut Singh and RajKumar Prithi Singh and two officers from the British forces in India, and that the World team will include representatives from various parts of the Empire.

: TRICKS OF THE TRADE

Toys and the Making of Barrels
Described by craftsmen and introduced by F. H. Grisewood
(From Birmingham)
In this programme, which Midland is contributing as the first of a new series in the National programme, a foreman enameller from a hard toy factory in the Black Country will give an impression of his work in a trade which he has followed for twenty-one years. Then a young woman who designs dresses for a soft toy factory will speak for the other side of the industry. A journeyman cooper from Burton-on-Trent, who has been in the trade since boyhood will describe the making of barrels, and the ancient custom of initiating a young cooper who has completed his apprenticeship. A large barrel is built round the young man who has finished his time, and he is then rolled in the barrel for a short distance.

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.
