6—' The Making of the Prayer
Book'
By Alec Macdonald
The Cast includes :
Marcus Barron
(By permission of Sydney Carroll)
Henry Hepworth »
Ian Dawson
Ann Stephenson
Produced by Geoffrey Dearmer
The Rector is hearing Michael his Catechism. That difficult duty towards my neighbour' proves a stumbling block, as usual, and Michael artfully leads his father away to telling him how in Edward VI's reign the English Prayer Book came into being. In the course of his story, the Rector gives Michael a glimpse into the past, and we see the new Book being introduced to the parishioners of four hundred years ago. Listeners may find it useful to have a copy of the Prayer Book at hand.

: BITTEN BY A SNAKE

An adventure in Siam
Frank Harrison
'...I thought I had been hooked up in some of these thorn bushes and I started to kick to release myself. But to my horror, at about the fifth attempt, flying past me at about elbow height I saw the tail of a nasty, green, thickish snake. I thought to myself: " Good heavens I have not been caught by the thorns, I have been bitten." '
Frank Harrison was right. He had been bitten, and bitten badly. In his foot were two punctures about an inch and a half apart. There was a doctor seventeen miles away, but the road in the rainy season was almost impassable. Death seemed inevitable. How he recovered through the unorthodox medical advice of Ah Tung, the mine overseer, is the subject of this talk, a nightmare experience the victim will never forget. Frank Harrison 's recovery depended largely on a prize cockerel which was used for blood transfusion. After three days in bed and six weeks' rest, he was, except for terrifying dreams, completely cured.

Tatiana Makushina (soprano)
The Modern Wind Quintet:
Edward Walker (flute); Terence MacDonagh (oboe); Reginald Kell (clarinet); Alan Hyde (horn);
Cecil James (bassoon)
John Wills (pianoforte)
The members of the Modern Wind Quintet are drawn from London's three leading orchestras-BBC Symphony, London Philharmonic, and London Symphony. Formed in 1932 for the purpose of creating interest in the large repertory of classical and modern chamber music for wind instruments, the Modern Wind Quintet spares no effort to attain perfection of ensemble and a standard of performance that is usually associated with the string quartet.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of MARGATE AND DISTRICT GENERAL
HOSPITAL, by Sir CHARLES A. BATHO , Bart.
Although the present hospital in Margate has been in existence for only seven years the building is already inadequate to meet the needs of the district. It has been decided to erect a separate nurses' home. The quarters at present occupied by the nurses can then be converted and utilised for additional patients' beds. The appeal is for funds to meet the estimate of £20,000.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

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.
