: A Ballad Concert

(From Aberdeen)


Baritone: Alexander Sinclair

: Scottish Children's Hour

Irish songs by FLORA BLYTHMAN and Cricket Topics, by the Rev. P. STANLEY ELEY
Mr. Eley is probably much better known to Scottish listeners as a broadcaster on football than on cricket, but he is an authority on most out-of-door games. He belongs to a small group of clerical sportsmen who have taken part in football as referees. In his youth he went through the football mill, beginning as a junior in the south of England some thirty years ago. His experience includes service with several of the professional and leading amateur leagues. When he Came to Scotland in 1926, the Scottish Alliance quickly elected him to its referees' list, and for three seasons he was regularly engaged in that League. During his six years' residence in Barnsley, Yorkshire, Mr. Kley served on an auxiliary branch of the English Football Association, and became familiar with the legislative side of the game. He recalls with amusement a remark he once heard from the captain of a colliery team as the game was about to begin : 'Sither, laad, thee must keep tha mouth shut today. Referee's a parson ! '

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.
