: London's Fire-Fighters

A display by the London Fire Brigade and Auxiliary Fire Service in the presence of Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Kent described by Thomas Woodrooffe and John Snagge from Hyde Park.
This afternoon thousands of people will be assembled between Hyde Park Corner and Marble Arch to witness one of the greatest fire displays that London has ever seen. The Fire Brigade and the London Auxiliary Fire Service will be represented by their crack men, and every type of modern fire-fighting appliance will be seen in action. A special wooden tower representing a four-storey house has been built for the occasion, and when it has served its various purposes as a scene of activity, it will be burnt down in the final fire scene.
Commentators Thomas Woodrooffe and John Snagge will be on the spot to bring listeners an account of operations. Commentaries on the last half-hour of the afternoon's programme (the whole of which, by the way, is being televised) will be broadcast. The items to be described are an emergency heavy unit display which includes an arch of water from eight hoses, escape rescues in which dummies will be dropped from the top of the tower to be caught by firemen below, the extinguishing of petrol fires by chemical foam, a display of horse-drawn manuals, drill with the marvellous turn-table ladders, and finally the burning of the tower and the extinguishing of the blaze by trailer pumps.

: 'G-MEN AGAINST CRIME'

The Story of America's Special
Agents
Written by Travis Ingham
Produced by William N. Robson
Prepared and recorded by the New
York Office of the BBC
This is the third feature programme from New York this year. Its author, Travis Ingham , will be remembered for his ' Crosstown New York', which was produced by William N. Robson and heard in Britain earlier this year. As in the case of No Help Wanted, all the actors in G-men Against Crime have been drawn from the radio division Of the Federal Theatre Project of the W.P.A.
Ingham and Robson ihave had the full assistance of the Federal Board of Investigation in preparing this programme. This Board is to America very much as Scotland Yard is to this country.
In this evening's programme you will hear how the great war of authority against social outlawry is being waged in the States.
An article on the work of the G-men, specially written for the RADIO TIMES by J. Edgar Hoover , Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Department of Justice, will be found on page 10

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.
