: FOR THE CHILDREN

' After Tea on Sunday'
A ' family gathering ' in the studio conducted by the Rev. Donald 0.
Soper, Ph.D.
This afternoon Dr. Donald 0. Soper will conduct the first of three ' family gatherings '. The following two will be broadcast on May 28 and June 25. Dr. Soper intends to reconstruct the atmosphere of his childhood home when, after tea, his father would gather the children together in the drawing-room for the singing of hymns, and for informal talk and reading.
This afternoon Dr. Soper will have boys and girls with him in the studio and they will try to recapture something of that family spirit and natural friendliness that characterised his father's drawing-room years ago.

: A BALALAIKA RECITAL

by Gregori Tcherniak accompanied by Geoffrey Sisley (guitar)
These two accomplished artists have been playing together for some time now. Gregori Tcherniak first broadcast from Savoy Hill in 1927 and has been heard with his balalaika on a great many occasions since then. Although the balalaika is mostly used for accompaniment, Gregori Tcherniak was convinced that it was capable of far wider things, and has made many balalaika arrangements of classics which he used to play on the violin.
Geoffrey Sisley plays the guitar almost exclusively, and has been broadcasting with the Karl Caylus Players for some years. He holds that the balalaika and guitar together form one of the most attractive combinations of such instruments.

: The Week's Good Cause

An appeal on behalf of THE BRITISH WIRELESS FOR THE BLIND FUND
(Local Maintenance Appeal)
(Registered under the Blind Persons Act, 1920)
by the Right Rev. The Lord Bishop of Bristol

Lord Southwood's appeal at Christmas for wireless sets for the blind brought in a larger sum than had ever been received before from a Week's Good Cause appeal. But this sum will all be absorbed by the actual provision of sets, and the problem remains to find money for their maintenance. Accordingly Regional appeals are made each year for funds to assist the most necessitous blind to maintain the sets supplied by the Fund. The money is distributed among the local agencies whose business it is to look after the welfare of the blind in their districts.

Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to The Rt. Rev. the Lord Bishop of Bristol, [address removed]

: 'THE CONVOYS'

A programme descriptive of the convoy work that went on in the four years of war between 1914 and 1918 Written and arranged by Captain Taprell Dorling (' Taffrail '), with acknowledgments to ' The German Submarine War' by R. H. Gibson and Maurice Prendergast
Production by John Cheatle
Had it not been for the escort of Britain's merchant shipping across the war-time seas by armed convoys of warships, the German submarine campaign in the Great War would probably have been successful, and this country starved into submission. It is no exaggeration to say that the convoy system saved Britain and the Empire from the gravest peril that has ever beset them. Tonight's programme will give some idea of the convoy work that went on in those four years of the war.
Captain Taprell Dorling , better known as ' TafTrail ', has written a number of radio programmes dealing with naval matters. His script tonight is partly original and partly compiled from the works of others.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
