Great Britain u. France
A commentary on some of the events by H. M. Abrahams from the White City Stadium
This afternoon Great Britain meet France for the fourteenth time in a match of fourteen events at the White City Stadium. Each team consists of two representatives in each event. The winner of each event scores five points, the second man three points, and the third man one point.
The match against France is our oldest regular fixture. It was first "eld in 1921 and is held every year alternately in Paris and London, with the exception of leap-years when the Olympic Games take place.
So far Great Britain can claim ten wins to France's three. France last won in 1930, when she scored 65 points to our 55. Last year in Paris we won by 66 points to 54.

: Saturday Talk on Sport: Dinghy Sailing

Michael Bratby
Here is a talk about small boat sailors and their boats - dinghies, which must be no more than 14 feet long and conform to other requirements laid down by the Island Sailing Club at Cowes in 1926. Listeners will hear about men who are renowned in the small boat racing world - Uffa Fox winner of two challenge cups and a famous designer and builder of dinghies, Stewart Morris, winner of the challenge cup four times, Peter Scott, who won the cup last year at Lowestoft and John Winter, whose boat Lightning has probably won more races than any other in the class.
In 1934 the first British team of 14-foot international dinghies went to Canada and beat the Canadians, and the American team as well. In 1936 the Canadians came over here and beat us at Lowestoft. Next Saturday a British team is to go to Canada again to sail races on Lake Ontario, with Peter Scott as captain and Michael Bratby, who is giving this talk, as manager;

In the last and biggest of his five piano concertos, the so-called ' Emperor ', Beethoven made several innovations in the traditional form, particularly in the first movement which is symphonic in style.
The slow movement is in effect a series of free variations on a melody of exceptional beauty, and the last movement is a brilliant rondo, which is linked with the slow movement by a beautiful transition passage. The theme heard at the outset, gay and swift-footed, sets the pace for a movement which is throughout in Beethoven's brightest good spirits.
Eigar's Variations on an original theme are dedicated ' To my friends pictured within ', and consequently each variation is prefaced with the initial or nickname of the friend ' pictured '. Referring to this novel idea, Elgar says : ' 'It is true that I sketched for their amusement and mine the idiosyncrasies of fourteen of my friends, not necessarily musicians, but this is a personal matter, and need not have been mentioned publicly ; the Variations should stand simply as a " piece of music.'
However, as one of Elgar's admirers pointed out, ' We see these friends of his in the light in which they appeared to Elgar .... But, as you cannot make a portrait of anybody without also making a portrait of yourself for the eyes that can see it, the real hero is Elgar himself.'
Tickets can be obtained from the British Broadcasting Corporation, Broadcasting House, Portland Place, W.1, Messrs. Chappell's Box Office, Queen's Hall, Langham Place, W.1, and the usual Agents. Prices : 7s. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved), 3s. (unreserved), promenade (payment at doors only) 2s.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
