: THE CESAREWITCH

A running commentary on the race:
At the Devil's Dyke:
Quintin Gilbey and Wilfrid Taylor
At the finish : Geoffrey Gilbey
Listeners are to hear the first broadcast ever given of this famous long-distance autumn handicap, which for the first time this year forms the second half of the big autumn double (the Cambridgeshire being the first half). Hitherto, the Cesarewitch has always been run first, at the second October meeting, but Mr. James de Rothschild suggested at a meeting of the Jockey Club in London last December that if the order of the races were reversed an owner having a horse in each would be more likely to run it in both if the shorter race came first. His motion was adopted this spring.
The Cesarewitch is run over a course of 2 miles 2 furlongs (exactly twice the distance of the Cambridgeshire). The first half of the journey cannot be seen from the stands because of the Devil's Dyke cutting off the view. Quintin Gilbey and Wilfrid Taylor (who at short notice gave a running commentary on the Chester Cup this spring) will therefore be stationed on the Dyke to report the early stages of the race, and Geoffrey Gilbey will be on the grandstand to ' tell ' the last few furlongs. It is hoped that listeners will thus hear a clear account of the race from start to finish, but they will remember that often at this time of the year visibility is bad.

: A VIOLIN RECITAL

by Daniel Melsa
Daniel Melsa was born in Warsaw and at the age of three showed an aptitude for the violin. After the revolution of 1905, during which his father and sister were killed, his mother took him to Berlin, where he studied under Carl Flesch. He made his debut with great success at the Beethoven Saal , and then went to Paris and played the Brahms Concerto under Nikisch. During the season 1913-14 Melsa gave six recitals in London, and when the war was over he returned to tour most of the important musical centres in Britain. After touring America and the East he settled in England permanently.

: LADIES' NIGHT

or ' Here's To The Maiden' by Cyril Nash
A programme re-enacting the yearly entertainment which relieves the monastic dignity of the London clubs
Let the toast pass, Drink to the lass ;
I'll warrant she'll prove an excuse for the glass !
The Players
Catherine Nangle
Brough Robertson Edgar Norfolk A. Acton-Bond Edwin Styles
Cyril Nash A. Scott Gatty
The Singers
Walter Glynne Arnold Matters
A Section of the BBC Men's Chorus
The Orchestra led by Josef Marais and conducted by Clifton Helliwell
Presented by William MacLurg
(Empire Programme)
This admirable entertainment-in every sense of- the term-was broadcast to Empire listeners a year ago. It adds to the laurels of Cyril Nash as author of first-rate radio programmes. Listeners will remember his ' Theatre Royal, Drury Lane', 'The Bounty Mutineers', and 'Coster Carnival' . He was also the author of a capital revue produced on the air in 1929, Hark Back.
In tonight's programme two or three old die-hard members of an imaginary Bohemian club object very strongly to a ladies' night. They are overruled, and the die-hards turn up to watch, as they hope, a dismal failure. With A. Scott Gatty in the chair, Edwin Styles as compere, and Catherine Nangle to charm everyone, their hopes are not realised. What the die-hards think of it all is told in an amusing epilogue.

: ' THE WORLD GOES BY'

Introduced by F. H. Grisewood
Once again listeners are to hear this radio magazine, in which all sorts of people will broadcast comment and information on various topics of interest among the" events and personalities of the day.
This evening, and once a month in future, they will be taken down into the country for a programme mainly devoted to the interests of the country-dweller. But towns-people too, it is hoped, will find in it something of interest to them. Is it not said that every Englishman is really a countryman at heart ?

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.

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.
