1 There's nought, 0 heart, can save thee. 2 Shadowy Gloom of the Night. 3 Erewhile upon my fingers. 4 Ye eyes of darkness, if ye but beckon. 5 Guard thy son. 6 Rose red I wear, my mother. 7
From yon hills the torrent speeds.
8 Secret nook in shady spot. 9 Sharp poison'd arrow. 10 To many a maid. I whisper soft. Ill will hear no more of love. 12 Darksome wood, thy shadows. 13 Seat thyself, my dearest heart. 14 Eyes of lightning, raven hair. 15 Now ye muses, be hush'd

: THE INTERNATIONAL SHEEP-DOG TRIALS

A commentary by J. Valentine Allen from the Municipal Golf Course,
Southport
Many of the cleverest dog-and-shepherd teams of Great Britain are appearing at these ' Internationals ', which began on Wednesday and finish today. All classes are restricted to dogs which were successful at the Scottish, Welsh, and English National Trials held at Kelso, Margam, and Ilkley during July and August.
Today's events are also being
' covered ' by Mr. Allen (the English President of the International
Society) in a commentary for North Regional listeners between 2.30 and
3.0 this afternoon. The Supreme Championship (' Singles ') and the ' Driving ' Championship are today's events at the trials-and today also there will be awarded the ' Hard Luck ' Cup which goes to the unluckiest competitor.

: ' UP AGAINST IT'

Forced down in the Sudan
Brig.-General A. C. Lewin ,
C.B., C.M.G., D.S.O.
About a year ago the newspapers were full of the rescue of Brig.-General A. C. Lewin and Mrs. Lewin from the swamp in the Sudan where they had been marooned for more than a week. While flying between Khartoum and Malakal in the machine with which he nearly won the King's Cup air race a fortnight before, Brig.-General Lewin was forced down in the middle of one of the vast Sudanese swamps. It was several days before he and his wife were sighted from the air and more than a week before a ground rescue party could reach them. During this time, though emergency supplies were quickly dropped by R.A.F. machines. Brig.-General Lewin and his wife had to exist under conditions of the greatest hardship.
The story of their experiences will be described for the first time over the air by Brig.-General Lewin tonight.

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.
