: Mr. Sponge's Sporting Tour: 8: Sir Henry Scattercash's Hounds

A serial reading from Surtees
'Sir Henry Scattercash 's hounds were only ill-supported; Sir Harry had worked through the morning of fife without knowing what it was to be troubled with money; now that he had come into some, he seemed bent upon trying how fast he could get through it.
'In this laudable endeavour he was ably assisted by Lady Scattercash, late the lovely and elegant Miss Spangles, of the "Theatre Royal, Sadlers Wells"'.

: TEA-TIME TALK

' How to Buy a Tie'
Barney Heron
Here is a talk for those women who, exclaiming ' What is the use of buying him a tie?—he will never wear it ! '—fare forth in their hordes at this time of the year to put the axiom to the test. Jt is indeed almost axiomatic that ' he' won't wear it, and nine times out of ten the ill-chosen tie lies neglected in its drawer. Here, then, is a group of tie-buying recipes for all those women who may like to give what can be, yet so rarely is, the nicest gift of all. The speaker is a man whose Job is choosing tie designs, and who knows to a stripe or a spot what Uncle George wants and what Cousin Adrian doesn't!
Barney Heron has done a fair amount of broadcasting in the North and has also given two previous tea-time talks. The best remembered of these is probably 'Not-so-good Housekeeping', the other being a talk in the ' Men to Women ' series on'Feminine Intuition'.

: ' 'IF I WERE YOU '

A radio play freely adapted by Jack Inglis from the P. G. Wodehouse novel of the same name
Introductory narration by F. H. Griscwood
CfM!
The action takes place first at Langley End, the country seat of Anthony, fifth Earl of Droitwich, and subsequently at Syd Price's hairdressing establishment, Knightsbridge
The production by Jack Inglis and Peter Creswell Here is another Jack Inglis adapta
tion of a P G Wodehouse novel His previous show was Semi-Detached, a radio version of ' Sam the Sudden' which was broadcast at the end of July this year This evening's play is a typical Wodehouse mélange of eiderty baronets and their disciplinarian wives, of ancestral halls, perfect butters, and scions of noble houses who turn out to be nothing of the kind In all its delicious complexity, in fact, the tale is Wodehouse at his best—a tale of how Anthony, fifth Earl of Droitwich, is suddenly told that he is his old nurse's son, and that the rightful Earl is the Cockney hairdresser who has hitherto been passing as her son The pair change places, the one to tackle life among park-lands and banqueting halts, the other to find romance behind the scissors

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.
