: ' THE LOFTY-MINDED MARINER'

A short story by Morley Roberts , read by Geoffrey Tandy
There have been strange tales of the sea, but few stranger surely than the one the bos'un had to tell, and did tell, those in the bar of the Old Brig at Anchor on a stormy night. And there was no man in the world who could refute the truth of it, for he alone survived of the crew of the barque.
For its imaginative qualities, for its conviction and suspense, and for its literary style, this story is Morley Roberts at his best. What a very good best that is, an older generation knows.
Novelist and journalist, he was born as long ago as 1857 and went to Australia when he was nineteen ; he has sailed before the mast, and has travelled and worked all over the world. He has been writing books for over fifty years-books mostly of travel and the sea. A new edition of his ' Malfgnancy and Evolution ', published twelve years ago, came out last year, while this year saw the publication of his latest work.

Handel touched in turn the highest mark of success and the lowest level of failure. He had powerful friends and equally powerful enemies, but his great strength was his own indomitable spirit. When his sight began to fail, at first he was crushed under the blow, but his powerful will and dogged courage soon asserted themselves. He sent for an amanuensis and once again took up the threads of his work.
He practised and played his harpsichord for hours on end, and insisted upon playing the organ in performances of his oratorios. He played from memory and. extemporised. He even played concertos at Covent Garden. And the crowds came in their thousands to enjoy the emotional spectacle of the blind old Titan defying Fate.

: HEAVYWEIGHT BOXING

Eddie Phillips v. Jack Doyle
A commentary on the fight, by Howard Marshall and W. Barrington
Dalby, from Harringay Arena
Here is a fight between a natural boxer with a will to win and the mystery man of boxing who has possibly the most colossal punch of any man today in the ring. They are to meet in an eliminating contest for the British Heavyweight Championship, the title for which is vacant.
Eddie Phillips , of Bow, beat
Tommy Farr , the late holder, three times as a light heavyweight, but was beaten by Jack McAvoy for the light heavyweight title. Jack Doyle , of Ireland, was disqualified in his fights, both with Jack Petersen and Alf Robinson ; was knocked out by Buddy Baer (Max's brother) ; and in his last fight beat ' Kingfish ' Levinski on points.
Eddie Phillips has been training at
Epping Forest ; Jack Doyle at Slough. The fight is to be refereed by C. B. Thomas.

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

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.
