: THE ROYAL SHOW

A description of the cattle parade by J. A. Scott Watson and John Green , from the Show Ground,
Sophia Gardens , Cardiff
The ' Royal ', to be attended this year by the Duke of Gloucester, is the biggest agricultural show in the world. Each year the show is held in a different centre. It opened yesterday at Cardiff and it closes on Saturday.
For many years the parade of cattle on Wednesday afternoon has been the outstanding feature of the show. The prizewinners of all breeds in the cattle classes parade in front of the grand stand in a continuous procession.
For the first time this unique spectacle will be described over the air by Professor J. A. Scott Watson, who has been giving the farming talks and who is himself an expert on livestock, and by John Green, who handles farming broadcasts.

Nunc Dimittis (Bennett in E flat) Anthem
' O living will that shalt endure
When all that seems shall suffer shock, Rise in the spiritual rock,
Flow thro' our deeds and make them pure.
That we may lift from out of dust A voice as unto Him that hears, A cry above the conquer'd years
To One that with us works, and trust.
With faith that comes of self-control, The truths that never can be proved Until we close with all we loved,
And all we flow from. soul in soul.'
(Tennyson-In Memoriam, cxxxi)

Hymn, Christ is our corner-stone (A. and M. 239)

: ' FARMING TODAY '

from the Royal Show Ground,
Sophia Gardens , Cardiff
Professor Scott Watson hopes to bring to the microphone many of the leading agriculturists in this country to give their opinion of this year's show and of farming generally. He will also try to persuade some of the distinguished visitors from the Dominions and the principal exporting countries to say something to listeners.
Last year the Royal Show was held at Wrottesley Park, Wolverhampton ; this year's show, at Cardiff (the ninety-ninth), is being held at Pontcanna Farm-an actual working farm-and will cover 150 acres of ground. Next year the centenary show will be held in the Great Park at Windsor, under the presidency of H.M. the King.

' The story of the bombing of Barcelona '
John Langdon-Davies
John Langdon-Davies , who recently gave a talk in ' Both Sides of the Line ', has been to Spain six times as a war correspondent. Today he is to read extracts from the log of the municipal authorities in Barcelona, giving a detailed account of the air raids of March 16, 17, and 18, in which it is estimated that 3,000 people were killed and 25,000 injured. He will also read various eye-witness accounts he collected from people who suffered in the raids. This broadcast should be an invaluable contribution to the A.R.P. series and will show listeners what it is like to be involved in a modern air raid.

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.
