: ' During the Interval' ' NO AUNTS TO TEA'

Kevin Fitzgerald
What is going to happen to children in a world becoming year by year the poorer in the benevolence, patience, and munificent attention of aunts ? This is the question which Kevin Fitzgerald asks listeners in his broadcast today. The small family of today, he declares, finds youngsters thrown back upon their parents, whose duty it must obviously be to shoulder the tasks hitherto borne so willingly by aunts.

10.32 God Save the King
Tonight the Proms will come to a close in the usual hilarious pandemonium of cheering, umbrella-thumping, and acclamation for Sir Henry Wood and the Orchestra. The scene on the floor of the Queen's Hall is a unique one, crowded with humorous incidents as well as roars of enthusiastic affection. Two years ago Frederick Grisewood described this scene. Tonight he will again be present, and, from a position in the organ loft, from which he can see the entire floor of the Hall, will bring a picture of the occasion to listeners.
Tickets can be obtained from the British Broadcasting Corporation, Broadcasting House, Portland Place, W.1, Messrs. Chappell's Box Office, Queen's Hall, Langham Place, W.1, and the usual Agents. Prices : 7s. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved), 3s. (unreserved). Promenade (payment at doors only) 2s.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
