The Capture of the Belgia at
Newport, August 4, 1914
Produced by A. Watkin Jones
The third edition of this popular programme will contain some interesting reminiscences of the old days in the Bristol Channel. Frank Trott , one of the oldest Bristol Channel pilots--he is over eighty-will take listeners back to the old sailing-ship days. It was he who brought the great Euripides up channel to dock at Cardiff.
South Wales docks were not as quiet in those days as they are now, and ex-Superintendent David Davies of the G.W.R. South Wales Docks Police will have some hair-raising experiences to relate.
S. E. Hailes was a G.P.O. telegraphist, and he will have something to say of the early experiments that the Post Office was forced to make owing to the cutting of the submarine cable which used to be the basis of the Severn defence communications.
Captain F. W. Cutcliffe can remember the loss of the Belgia off Newport, on August 4, 1914, the first ship to be captured after the declaration of war.

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.
