: SCHOOLBOYS' CRICKET

London Schoolboys v.
Welsh Schoolboys
A commentary on part of the match by Michael Standing from Lord's
This is not the first time a team representing the London Schools' Cricket Association has met a representative team of Welsh schoolboys. A London team visited Neath in July, 1936, and beat the home team by 3 runs and 5 wickets. The match was described by no less a judge than Bill Hitch as ' a great afternoon ', so listeners may look forward to hearing some fine play in today's twenty-minute glimpse.

: WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE CINEMA ?

A discussion between
Rose Macaulay, John Betjeman ,
Sidney L. Bernstein , and John Grierson
Tonight's discussion should be fair as well as sparkling. We may expect some drastic criticism from Rose Macaulay, who can be very devastating about modern institutions, and John Betjeman , who used to write notably lively film notices before he began giving broadcast talks about architecture. The cinema should be worthily defended, however, by Sidney Bernstein , one of the most enterprising of exhibitors, and John Grierson , who put Britain on the map with documentary films. Among them they may solve the difficult question of finding out what is wrong with a form of entertainment to which people flock in their millions every week.

: 'GOOD CORRESPONDENTS'

Eric Gillett
A taste for Jane Austen is like a taste for olives ; either you have it or you haven't-and if you are in the unfortunate second category no amount of petulance or persuasion .will shift you into the first. But if you are in the first, ' sealed of the tribe of Jane', you cannot have failed to wish for more of her. That is what the letters give: one more social circle peopled with the familiar types and seen through Jane's playful, ironic eyes ; one more Jane Austen heroine, and one of the most delightful of them all-Jane herself.
To take only one example, no one but Jane could have written of that ' much admired ' Mrs. Blount that ' she appeared exactly as she did in September, with the same broad face, diamond bandeau, white shoes, pink husband, and fat neck.'

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.
