' Two Brave Indians '
From ' Yams on Fighters of India's Foes' by Basil Mathews , read by Carleton Hobbs
Listeners may remember Carleton Hobbs 's reading of Basil Mathews s short account of the life and adventures of John Williams under the title of ' If Only I had a Ship '. Today he will read about two remarkable but little-known converts to Christianity.
Jesumani was dedicated to the devil-priestess of an Indian village when she was discovered by an Englishwoman and her brother. She who once was the ' voice' of the Cholera Goddess is today a living witness to the Spirit. ' Mr. Stand-fast ', of Kashmir, a Moslem boy who lived up to the motto ' In all things be men ', is the hero of this second selected story.

'The Black Sheep'
This evening the Rev. Mr. Parish will consult Mr. Bartington about an unfortunate accident in which he became involved while cycling in the country. He is not so much concerned with enforcing his rights as in knowing the liability of a neighbouring farmer for leaving his sheep out on the highway.

An appeal on behalf of THE MOTHERCRAFT TRAINING
The Mothercraft Training Society was founded in 1918 by the late Sir Truby King , who came over from New Zealand at the request of a committee, of which the late Lord Plunket was chairman. He, as Governor-General of New Zealand, and Lady Plunket had had opportunities of seeing what Dr. King's beliefs were doing for the mothers and children of that Dominion.
The M.T.S. Headquarters are at
Highgate, and there are centres at Earl's Court, Kingstqn-on-Thames, Cardiff, Newport, Cambridge, Brighton, and Oxford.
The aims of the Society are to impress upon women the importance of health, to indicate a sense of the responsibilities of motherhood and to impress upon mothers, and mothers-to-be, the vital need for the healthy fulfilment of the natural calb of maternity. It is also the object of the society to train and employ qualified nurses to give advice and assistance on matters affecting the health and well-being of women both before and after their children are born.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

Ivor Newton (pianoforte)
Faure had a great power of lyrical expression. His music abounds with beautiful and finely drawn melodies. A consummate craftsman and a harmonist of considerable range and subtlety, everything he wrote is highly polished and designed with an unerring sense of balance and clarity of style. Indeed, Debussy once said that the graceful fleeting lines of Faure's music may be compared to the gesture of a beautiful woman without either suffering by the comparison '. These qualities characterise the Cello Sonata No. 2 in G minor, which was composed in 1921, when Faure was seventy-six years of age.

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.
