Organist and Choirmaster,
Alfred D. Aschcroft
Listeners are to hear a service from a chapel which was made famous by the ministry of Hugh Stowell Brown, from 1848 to 1886. Myrtle Street Baptist Church is hardly ' out in the country' now, but when it was built in 1844, and the congregation was removed from the old church in Lime Street, the new district was a suburb adjoining green fields. The chapel had to be enlarged three times to accommodate the crowd who came to hear the famous preacher.

The music of Dennis Stall 's ' Twelve Dancing Princesses' is based on Grimm's famous fairy tale of twelve Princesses who wore out their shoes each night with dancing, although the perplexed King carefully locked their bedroom door. It commences with a whirl of the Magic Cloak of Invisibility, under cover of which an old Soldier follows the Princesses through a secret passage to the Fairy Ballroom. Thert he watches them waltz away the night in company with twelve handsome Princes. The next morning, the old Soldier claims the eldest Princess and half the kingdom as a reward for his assiduity ; which granted, general happiness reigns, and everybody dances on for ever and ever.

: MISSIONARY TALK

' A Continent of Contrasts :
Memories of thirty-five years in South America'
The Rt. Rev. E. F. Every ,
O.B.E., D.D.,
Assistant Bishop of Derby
Thirty-five years ago, after being curate and vicar for nearly twenty years in various towns in North-East England, Dr. Every went to South America as Bishop of the Falkland Islands. These islands formed only an infinitesimal fraction of his huge and varied diocese on the mainland of South America. In 1909 it was divided, and from that date until his return to England last summer Dr. Every was Bishop of Argentina and Eastern South America.
For more than a generation he has been responsible for Anglican work in an area stretching from Cape Horn to Brazil and from the Andes Mountains to the Atlantic. Thus he has first-hand knowledge of the lonely colonists on the Falkland Islands and of the British communities in the cities of the mainland, and also of the work of the South American Missionary Society among the primitive ' Indian ' people of the South America Chaco and other regions.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE WHITEHAVEN AND DISTRICT
WELFARE ASSOCIATION, CUMBERLAND by The Rev. R. G. MALDEN
The work that the Whitehaven and District Welfare Association does for girls in distress is not only remedial but protective. Girls from undesirable homes, or those who have no homes, can be placed in shelters and refuges according to their need. Young children in moral danger are helped. Boys and men are helped to see the necessity and possibility of a single moral standard. The work is a challenge to all Christians.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

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.
