Today, and on Sunday, October 18, two dramatic biographies by Geoffrey Dearmer are to be broadcast for the children and ' for the young in heart of all ages '.
This afternoon the biography chosen is that of Charles T. Studd —' C. T.', as he was called by his friends-both a great cricketer and a great missionary.
Listeners will visualise him playing at the Oval, will follow him to China and into the heart of unknown Africa, and will learn how he and his wife laboured, suffered, rejoiced, and succeeded in the cause of bringing spiritual enlightenment and civilisation to tens of thousands of native men and women. The story concludes with ' C.T.'s ' heroic and happy death as an old and altogether undefeated man.

: I Was There

The rising in Johannesburg and the Jameson Raid
FRANK WORTHINGTON
In 1895 there was great discontent among the British in the Transvaal over President Kruger's policy of excluding them from the franchise and in many other ways discriminating against them.
At last they decided to rebel, and part of the plan was that as soon as they rose in Johannesburg, Dr. Jameson, a friend of Cecil Rhodes , was to cross the border with as many men as he could raise.
Divided counsels in Johannesburg caused delay after delay, and Jameson, unable to restrain his followers, crossed the border on his famous ' Raid ' with not many more than five hundred men, on January 1, 1896. The British in Johannesburg were taken by surprise and had to rise before they were ready.
Frank Worthington was in the town at the time. a young man of twenty-one, and joined the rebellion. This evening he is to describe how he joined Colonel Bettington's Horse and rode out to meet Jameson-who never arrived.

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.
