Reginald Foort at the BBC Theatre Organ
Reginald Foort, whose broadcasts from New York on August 21 and 23 were heard by listeners in this country, was due back from his American holiday last night. He has been having what he described in his last postcard as a splendid time, and his millions of fans over here will welcome his voice and music again tonight.
He will be broadcasting regularly until the end of October. On Friday he is to give on the air one of his careless, gay programmes, 'A Day in the Country'.


An appeal on behalf of THE LONDON Y.W.C.A. by NORMAN BIRKETT , K.C.
The Y.W.C.A. is concerned with all questions affecting the welfare of women and girls, and provides for them a practical social serviced In London the demands on it are endless, and include hostels for women travellers and the many thousands of girls whose work takes them away from their homes (among them ' transferred juveniles' from the Special Areas) ; cafeterias, providing good food at moderate prices ; and information bureaux-the Central Club alone dealt with 38,317 enquiries last year.
Centres with club programmes are arranged to meet the needs of the modern girls' leisure hours, indoor and out. These include gym, and keep-fit classes ; dramatic groups ; handicrafts; discussions on topical, personal, and international problems; dancing, walking, games ; and Bible study and worship.
Large centres have been opened on several of the new housing estates, and many more will be opened when funds allow.
Contributions will he 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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
