John Mathewson is one of the most popular baritones in Scotland. He began his career as a public singer on leaving the army in 1919 and has appeared on the concert platform in most of the principal towns in Scotland and the North of England. Mr. Mathewson is notable as an interpreter of Border songs, a number of which he is including in this programme. Among these, and perhaps the most exacting, is ' The Flowers o' the Forest', so closely identified with the disaster of Flodden Field.

St. Giles' Cathedral Boys' Club first met eight years ago in a small room in the Lawnmarket, Edinburgh, and four years later acquired its present premises. It is the first boys' club in Scotland to have a chapel of its own, and it is from this chapel that the usual afternoon service is being broadcast this afternoon. Once a rat-infested gymnasium, the chapel has been transformed by the boys themselves into a place of beauty. The Chaplain of the Club is the Very Rev. Charles L. Warr, D.D., and the President, Sir lain Colquhoun of Luss, Bart., D.S.O.

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.
