Appeal on behalf of THE INVALID CHILDREN'S AID ASSOCIATION, by Miss IRENE VANBRUGH
The Association provides facilities for convalescence, surgical appliances and the aftercare of invalid children whose parents are unable to afford the necessary treatment; more than a quarter of a million children have come under its care. The appeal, which Miss Irene Vanbrugh , the well-known actress, makes tonight, is for £2,000, needed to organise the Association's work in the Greater London area. This extension is demanded by the removal of delicate children from slum areas to localities in which hospitals are loss accessible.
Contributions will be gratefully received and acknowledged by Miss Irene Vanbrugh , [address removed]

: A Recital by THE TEMPLARS

Considered as a team The Templars enjoy what must surely be a unique advantage; every member of this male voice choir graduated as a boy in the Temple Church Choir and gained early experience under Sir Walford Davios in the great days when he directed the music there. And now the Choir is more like an Old Boys' Club, for besides meeting regularly in a room at Temple for rehearsal, they put a team in the field in the football and cricket seasons. The present choir was founded about ten years ago, and broadcast for the first time in January, 1930. Their repertory, which is mostly for unaccompanied voices, is mainly of the folk-song type, with some Tudor music and a leaven of modern part-songs of the better kind. Owing to the combination of the choir, which does not include the high tenors and deep basses of the more spectacular choral bodies, the music has often to be arranged for the occasion. A. Capcll Dixon is both conductor and arranger ; he is also the ' father ' of the choir, having been one of the first of the Temple boys to come under that beneficent disciplinarian, Sir Walford Davies.

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.
