Empire Cup
IRELAND v. HURLINGHAM
A running commentary by Major G. Phipps-Hornby from Hurlingham
The Empire Cup was presented by the Duke of Windsor, when he was Prince of Wales, in 1926, to be competed for by teams representing any of the countries within the Empire, the United Kingdom being represented for this purpose by the Hurlingham Club, and Ireland being entitled to a separate representation.
India and Australia might have been represented, but, unfortunately, owing to the Nawab of Bhopal's accident, his team have had to scratch, and the Australian team are breaking up owing to the sale of their ponies before the date when the tournament opens.
Ireland have many good players to call upon, including Captain Humphrey Guinness , Captain C. T. 1. Roark, and Major B. J. Fowler. It is hoped that the Hurlingham side will include Gerald Balding , H. Hesketh Hughes , and other international or first-class players.

Dr. Ernest Walker , pianist, composer, and writer on musical subjects, was educated at Balliol College, Oxford. As an examiner and teacher at the University, he has accomplished much important work. Dr. Walker has composed a great deal of fine music, among which is a number of songs. As a song-writer he can be undoubtedly placed among the front rank of British composers, and the selection of songs to be heard this evening show his great gifts in this direction.

: THE PARIS EXHIBITION

Described and appreciated from a Paris studio
By E. M. Stephan and Moray McLaren
After four years of war and nineteen years of unrest, men of all professions, of all nations, and of all countries, have built in the very heart of Paris a mighty edifice closely resembling a Palace of Peace. All crafts have their places in it ; all nations will be assembled there. Marvels unfold along the banks of the Seine in a witchery of light and colour.
Moray McLaren , who recently visited the capitals of Europe to arrange and broadcast in the series ' European Exchange ', has gone over to Paris to see round the exhibition and has taken with him a Frenchman whose name is known to every British listener. After more than thirty years spent in London,
Emile Marie Stephan has returned for the time being to his native land to broadcast from Paris about the sights that he and McLaren have seen together.

Gwen Catley (soprano)
While in Germany in 1836, when he was twenty years of age, Sterndale Bennett wrote his overture ' The Naiads', which was inspired by a trip up the Rhine. It was actually written, however, in England while staying at Grantchester, a village on the river near Cambridge. Bennett then took the score to Leipzig where it received its first performance under Mendelssohn at a Gewandhaus
Concert. It is dedicated to the Royal Academy of Music where the composer studied.

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.
