: THE FIRST TEST MATCH

England v. The West Indies
A commentary on the opening overs of the match, by Howard Marshall , from Lord's
There is little doubt that Lord's will be packed today for the first of the three-game series of Test matches between England and one of the most attractive sides ever seen on a cricket field.
It is true that during the early stages of their tour the West Indies showed somewhat disappointing form, though they redeemed themselves with a vengeance last time they appeared at Lord's, when they gave Middlesex one of the soundest beatings that county has ever had.
So far fourteen Test games have been played between England and the West Indies. Of these England has won seven, the West Indies three, and four have been drawn.
Martindale, Constantine, and Headley have been delighting Lancashire League cricket spectators for some years, and this season are making their reappearance in first-class cricket.
As well as commentators Marshall and Standing, E. W. Swanton will be at Lord's to broadcast, assisted by the other .two, a ball-by-ball commentary on the whole match to listeners in the West Indies.

The Champion Cup
A commentary on the last three chukkas, by Major G. Phipps -
Hornby, from Hurlingham
The tournament for the Champion Cup was inaugurated in 1875, and, with rare exceptions, such as the war years, it has been played annually ever since, and always at Hurlingham. It virtually decides the championship of England. Play began last Saturday ; two teams who invariably put up a good show-Mr. W. L. Horbury 's Optimists, and Sir Harold Wernher 's Someries
House-are expected to reach the deciding match, the last half of which is to be broadcast today.
Major G. Phipps-Hornby , a fine polo player in his dav, and a well-known judge of horses, is an equally well-known broadcaster. His commentaries range from polo to point-to-point races. He has given three commentaries this week on events in the International Horse Show at
Olympia.

: A RECITAL

William Pleeth (violoncello)
Margaret Good (pianoforte)
Both William Pleeth and Margaret Good earned the distinction of playing with famous symphony orchestras while still in their 'teens. William Pleeth played in a concert at Leipzig, conducted by Bruno
Walter, at the age of sixteen, and his co-broadcaster, while still a student at the Royal Academy of Music, played with Sir Henry Wood at Queen's Hall. Pleeth, who comes of a musical family, has played with municipal orchestras all over the country, and under many famous conductors. He was first heard on the air in 1933, and has broadcast a great many times with the Blech String Quartet, of which he is a member. Margaret Good first broadcast from
Savoy Hill in 1930, and in those days did all her broadcasting with her brother Ronald Good, now a member of the BBC Symphony Orchestra. She is married to Herbert Murrill, English composer.

: 'THE CHURCH BY THE SEA'

A play for broadcasting by Hugh Stewart
Cast
Produced by B. W. Cave-Browne -Cave
Above is reproduced a photograph of the tombstone of Phoebe Hessel (the heroine of The Church by the Sea), which is to be found in the graveyard of St. Nicholas Church, Brighton. The writing on the tombstone reads as follows, the punctuation, for the sake of appearance, being ours: ' In memory of Phoebe Hessel , who was born at Stepney . in the year 1713. She served for many years as a private soldier in the 5th Reg. of Foot in different parts of Europe, and in the year 1745 fought under the command of the Duke of Cumberland at the battle of Fontenoy, where she received a bayonet wound in her arm. Her long life which commenced in the reign of Queen Anne extended to the reign of George IV, by whose munificence she received comfort and support in her latter years. She died at Brighton where she had long resided, December 1 ?th. 1821, aged 108 years.'

: 'SATURDAY ATNINE-FORTY-FIVE'

Richard Tauber with The BBC Theatre Orchestra
Leader, Tate Gilder
Conductor, Stanford Robinson
As one of the most popular operatic singers of the present time Richard Tauber needs no introduction to listeners. He has sung for his public in almost every medium-film, radio. opera, and stage-and is unquestionably possessed of a voice and personality of unusually popular appeal. He has sung with the BBC Theatre Orchestra a good many times in the past, and he is this year one of the leading tenors at Covent Garden ; many listeners may have heard him in Smetana's The Bartered Bride, the first act of which was broadcast on the opening night of the Opera Season. This evening he will sing some of the arias that people love so well, both from opera and from Viennese operetta. Tauber will also include other songs in his repertoire.

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
