: ' BACKGROUND TO SPORT'

Racing as it is Today
A talk on the progress and improvement of racing, and its presentation as a national entertainment and diversion by Captain Eric Rickman
(' Robin Goodfellow ' of the Daily
Mail)
Captain Eric Rickman has been a racing journalist for seventeen years. He began on the Sportsman and has been ' Robin Goodfellow ' of the Daily Mail for the last ten years. He spends nearly every racing day on a racecourse, meeting owners, trainers, and jockeys, watching the running of every race with an eye to an interesting ' story' and the future. At the end of the day he telegraphs or 'phones his ' story' (as his contribution is called) from distant meetings or takes it back with him to the office from near-at-hand courses, as he records in his most interesting book 'On and Off the Racecourse ', published this year.
He is to broadcast a talk on the subject he knows inside out, and will discuss among other things the cost of keeping a racehorse in training, the finance and control of racing, and some of the many improvements that have been made for the benefit both of the public and of the great industry of racehorse breeding and racing with which he has been so intimately connected during the last twenty years.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section C)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Leslie Heward
Roy Henderson (baritone)
Arthur Bliss 's ' Serenade ' was first performed in 1930. Dedicated to the composer's wife, it is divided into four movements. First comes an Overture for orchestra, ' The Gallant ', which represents the serenader himself. The second number is a setting of Spencer's sonnet ' Fair is my Love'. The third number is an Idyll for orchestra, with these lines as its motto: And thus our delightful hours full of waking dreams shall pass '. The fourth number is another song, the text of which is by Sir John Wotton entitled ' In Praise of his Daphnis '.

: E. FELTON RAPLEY

at the BBC Theatre Organ
Felton Rapley began his musical career at the early age of thirteen. Like many prominent cinema organists, he originally set out to be a church organist, and was for a time assistant to the late Dr. Prendergast at Winchester Cathedral. He is the holder of the diplomas of Associate of the Royal College of Music, and Associate of the Royal College of Organists, and in the latter examination he was awarded the ' Sawyer' prize.
Since turning his attention to the cinema he has held important appointments at the Electric, Bournemouth ; the Regent, Hanley; and the Gaumont Palace, Birmingham (his present position, which he has held since December, 1935). He gave a series of broadcasts from the Regent, Hanley, in 1931, and he has done a large amount of recital work in the Midlands.

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.
