: FOR YOUNGER CHILDREN

' The Bricklayer and the Kins '
(Nott of the South Seas) by J. Reason
Read by Laidman Browne
Late in the eighteenth century the famous Captain Cook made his voyages of discovery to the South Seas. The wonderful stories he brought home of lovely coral islands, strange fruit, many-coloured shells, and precious spices aroused a great deal of interest in England, and also a great deal of greed. A number of traders thought at once that here was an easy way of getting rich, by exchanging valuable cargoes for a few-knives and beads with the simple natives of the islands. But there were also many people in England who thought of the natives themselves and their needs. They heard that they were worshippers of idols, and were often cannibals ; and they decided that they ought to be given a chance to hear the message of Christ.
So in 1795 the London Missionary
Society was founded. Its first venture was to send out the little ship Duff to far-off Tahiti in the South Seas. This is the story of one of the young men it carried, Henry Nott , a simple bricklayer, who because of his courage and resolution and keenness of mind became the friend and counsellor of the King of Tahiti.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of WHITBREAD HOUSE HOSTEL by MAJOR H. B. T. WAKELAM
Whitbread House began its career as a refuge for boys more than eighteen years ago in a house close to Woolwich Ferry. In 1936 the accommodation became insufficient to cope with the number of boys and a move was made to a bigger house higher up, overlooking the river, in Rectory Place.
Since that time over one hundred and fifty boys have been fed and clothed and have passed through the Hostel, and all except ten of these have been placed in work and set on their feet again. Whitbread House never lacks boys, and money is urgently required for repairs and improvements.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Major H. B. T. Wakelam , [address removed]

: Italian Madrigals

Gesualdo and Monteverdi
The BBC Singers (A): Margaret Godley Margaret Rees Doris Owens Gladys Winmill Bradbridge White Martin Boddey Stanley Riley Samuel Dyson
Conductor, Leslie Woodgate
Ernest Lush (harpsichord)
Ambrose Gauntiett (viola da gamba)
Don Carlo Gesualdo, Prince of Venosa, and Claudio Monteverdi were contemporaries. Gesualdo was born at Naples about 1560 and died there in 1613. The most spectacular event of his domestic life was the murder, at his orders, of his wife and her lover. As a composer his fame rests on six books of madrigals, most of which are undoubtedly the work of a genius.
Monteverdi, who was born at Cremona in 1567 and died in Venice in 1643, was also a great composer of madrigals, but his fame rests more on his great exploits in the field of opera, of which he was one of the pioneers.

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.
