' If only I had a Ship'
A story by Basil Matthews
Read by Carleton Hobbs
This little story by Basil Matthews (published in the series ' True Stories of Real People ' by the Edinburgh House Press) is about John Williams (1796-1839) who was famous for his work among the natives of the South Sea Islands.
He was a martyr for Christianity, and is particularly remembered for his construction of a ship — a schooner of eighty tons burden designed and built with. the help of natives who hadn't seen a tool six months before. This ship he called The Messenger of Peace, and it was the first ship of any sort the natives had ever seen.
In her he sailed from the island of Rarotonga to many surrounding islands, and a modern steam yacht, which flies his flag-a blue flag with a dove-and is named after him, commemorates his great work in the Southern Pacific. Basil Matthews describes him as ' the hero of a hundred islands '.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of THE LONDON GARDENS SOCIETY by C. H. MIDDLETON
The London Gardens Society ' is an association of people who try to brighten up the dark spots of London by bringing a touch of nature's beauty into the homes of the poor. They go into drab districts and help people to cultivate little gardens. They provide soil for the window boxes and plants for those who can't afford to buy them....'
C. H. Middleton , in his first appeal on the air, will tell listeners some of the many other things that this society does to give gardens of some kind-even little window-box gardens-to those who have none at all. Middleton, who has done so much to help listeners to make their gardens beautiful, is to ask them to do something for these others, , some of them old people who were brought up in the country and once knew the joy of a garden ; some of them cripples or unemployed, who would just love to grow a few flowers if they knew how, or could afford the few shillings necessary to make a start.'
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]

Jelly D'Aranyi (violin)
Myra Hess (pianoforte)
In the summer of 1781 Mozart wrote four violin sonatas of which this is the first. It is a charming little work, graceful and transparent in style with an idyllic slow movement. The finale moves at a very quick tempo and has something of the character of a Viennese march.

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.
