: CALLENDER'S SENIOR BAND

Conductor, Tom Morgan
Tom Kinniburgh (bass)
K. A. Wright 's ' Peddars Way ' is the most recent of a number of works written by the composer specially for Callender's Band. It was conceived during a visit to the now solitary Way that* runs across East Anglia from Thetford to the coast at Brancaster. This was already old when Roman legions marched on it ; a thousand years passed, and it bore pilgrims to Our Lady of Walsingham's shrine. Today it remains a ghost of a mighty road, shaded by giant trees, grown over with grass, abandoned to the birds and the wanderer. This Rhapsody has no programme, but it is made of themes which may suggest in turn the peace of the countryside, the passing of chattering pilgrims, the ring of a martial procession, and more than a hint of a rollicking folk dance.

: ‘ IN YOUR GARDEN '

The Rock Garden
C. H. Middleton and Clarence Elliott
C. H. Middleton is bringing to the microphone Clarence Elliott , who is one of the leading authorities on Alpine plants and who goes abroad almost every year on plant-collecting expeditions. Corsica, the Falkland Islands, the Pyrenees, Maritime Alps, Savoy Alps, the Dolomites, Majorca, North and South America, the Andes, Cantabrian Alps-these are some of the places he has visited since 1908, the year after he established his nursery at Stevenage. Mr. Elliott has lectured in the United States and in Sweden, and his book, ' Rock Garden Plants', was highly praised. In today's talk with Mr. Middleton he will not be discussing ordinary rock gardens, but a novel feature of his own-the making and planting of small rock gardens in old kitchen sinks.

: WORLD THRIFT DAY

A Programme for a Celebration observed by Thirty-one Countries
Many listeners may wonder what World Thrift Day is, and may be surprised to know that the idea originated as long ago as 1924 at the first International Savings Congress at Milan. Associated with the movement are 5,500 savings banks in thirty-one countries, and its principal object is to stimulate thrift, especially among young people.
The broadcast will be introduced by Sir Josiah Stamp , and then various people will come to the microphone to say how they have saved, or are saving, or are encouraging saving. Finally, Signor Ravizza , who first originated World Thrift Day (today is World Thrift Day, by the way), will broadcast a message to listeners.

NERVOUS DISEASES by VIOLET LORAINE
The West End Hospital, in Regent's Park, deals only with the treatment and care of nervous diseases and disorders in children and adults.

Its patients are received from every quarter of the British Isles and other parts of the Empire. In the out-patient department alone, more than fifty doctors deal with thirty-eight thousand attendances annually.

: ALL SAINTS

A programme specially arranged for the Eve of All Saints' Day by R. Ellis Roberts
Produced by Robin Whitworth with Robert Speaight
Felix Aylmer
(By permission of Rcandco)
-Leo Genn
Nan Marriott-Watson
The BBC Chorus, Section B
A Section of the London Symphony Orchestra
Leader, W. H. Reed
The music arranged by Trevor Harvey
Conducted by Leslie Woodgate
(This programme was first broadcast on the Eve of All Saints', 1936)
Unlike Christmas and Holy Week, which were the subjects of the radio programmes ' Unto Us' and' Maundy Thursday', no actual event is celebrated on All Saints' Day. It is a day that emphasises (as this programme will) that saints may be unknown and poor people, who do their work for love's sake with no reward but love of the work itself.

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.
