: 'SENTENCED TO DEATH'

J. H. Squire
J. H. Squire has been known to listeners since the early days of broadcasting as the leader of the record-breaking Celeste Octet. Before he became a musician, however, he seems to have had a singularly eventful career. Readers of his recently - published autobiography, ' ... And Master of None', will remember that he went to sea when little more than a child, and after various adventures found himself enlisted as a trumpeter on one side or the other in a South 'American revolution (he was never sure which side). The consequence was the adventure that he will recount today.

: 'CLONBOCKETTY'

A short story written for broadcasting by L. A. G. Strong and read by the author
As all L. A. G. Strong 's admirers must know, he is at his best when painting the humour of Irish country life. Though born in Devon, he is almost an Irishmanhis father is half Irish, his mother wholly so-and as a boy he used to spend two months every summer with his grandparents in Glasthule, Co. Dublin. I used to penetrate the poorest hovels, ride in the Wicklow Mountains, and fish for conger eels ', he says. And the fruit of all this experience will be found in the novel, The Garden ', and in many short storie;, of which Clonbocketty ' is one of the most amusing.

: SNOOKER

Joe Davis v. Horace Lindrum
A commentary during play in the Handicap Competition by Willie Smith from Thurston's Hall
Today and again on Friday (at
9.0 p.m.) listeners are to hear commentaries on play in the Daily Mail Gold Cup Tournament between Joe Davis , world's snooker champion, who plays in this tournament from scratch, and Horace Lindrum , who receives ten points a game. These broadcasts are the more interesting because they concern the best snooker players in the country. Lindrum has not entered for the next world championship, for which Davis is a strong favourite.

In France in 1721 Scene 1, The Courtyard of an Inn at
Amiens
Scene 2, An apartment in the Rue
Vivienne, Paris
Scene 3, A parlour in the Seminary of St. Sulpice
Scene 4, A fashionable gambling-room in Paris
Scene 5, A lonely spot on the road to Havre
' Manon Lescaut' is one of the world's great love stories. Its original form is as a novel by the Abbe Prevost , which was published in 1733. There are two first-rate operatic settings of the story--one by Massenet, the other by Puccini. The former, however, is not very well known to British opera enthusiasts, and therefore these broadcast performances should be of exceptional interest. Those who missed the first broadcast last Friday should not fail to listen tonight, for, as Stanford Robinson pointed out in his article in the RADIO TIMES last week, there are 'two hours of delightful music presented in the form of broadcast entertainment'. Listeners may like to refer to the story of Manon which was told by Wilfrid Rooke Ley on page 7 of last week's issue.

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.
