Among the distinguished guests (numbering 800) will be the Duke and Duchess of Kent, and a large number of the Cabinet, and of the French colony in London.

The scene will be described by Michael Standing , and listeners will hear the end of the Lord Mayor's speech in English and the President's speech in French in reply.

: THE LINCOLN

A commentary on the Lincolnshire
Handicap by R. C. Lyle at the Grand Stand
Richard North and J. Lawson Topham (race-reader) approximately at the Four-Furlong Post from the Carholme, Lincoln
No big race is more eagerly looked forward to than the Lincolnshire Handicap. It marks the start of another season ; the whispered tip may win or disappoint, and in the next few weeks last year's form will be turned inside out in the glorious uncertainty of the game.
The ' Lincoln ', one of the most open of races, is run over the straight mile on the Carholme, and those who have been lucky enough to ' pick the first leg of the double ' will feel very happy when the Grand National comes along in two daye' time.

The Fol-de-Rols first broadcast in 1934, and have been heard on the air regularly ever since both in studio broadcasts and in outside broadcasts from their various concert parties. This year for the first time they are giving a weekly series, commencing tonight, with various features continuing from week to week, the whole material being written by Greatrex Newman. After this week there will be an afternoon transmission each Wednesday as well as an evening broadcast.
There are eight members of the radio company-five men and three girls— with nine vocalists in addition. The artists that listeners are to hear will split up and join their respective Fol-de-Rols parties at Llandudno, Hastings, and Sandown.
Among famous artists who have appeared with the Fol-de-Rols are the Western Brothers, Elsie and Doris Waters , Beryl Orde , Mario de Pietro, and Marjery Wyn. Arthur Askey and Richard Murdoch appeared with them last season at Hastings. Leonard Henry will be starring with them at Hastings this summer.
An entertaining dialogue on concert party in general and the Fol-de-Rols in particular between George Royle , founder of the Fol-de-Rols. and Harry S. Pepper , will be found on page 13.

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.
