' Bob Apple '-A Halloween Party at Much-Wool-Gathering, by DOROTHY WORSLEY
The West Country village of Much-Wool-Gathering, with its famous character of Colonel Bristle, late of the Horse Marines, his batman, Bungler, and the Oldest Inhabitants, is well known to all West Regional children. There are two great annual events in the village, one of which takes place at Christmas, the other being the famous Bob Apple Competition that takes place every year at the village Hallowe'en Party. It is to this party that we are taking you this year, when you will hear the galhint Colonel in action, as he invariably is, foiling the plans of the villains who must invariably be attracted by the revels of this famous Hallowe'en Party.

Toward the Unknown Region
'Darest thou, 0 Soul,
Walk out with me toward the unknown region,
Where neither ground is for the feet nor any path to follow?' —Walt Whitman
The works of Walt Whitman, the American poet, have in recent years made a areat appeal to composers, particularly those for whom the philosophy of life and living is a congenial study; Delius, for example, and more especially Vaughan Williams. The words of ' Toward the Unknown Region' are from a well-known poem of Whitman's, beginning with the l'nes at the head of this note.
This work, Vaughan Williams 's first important composition for choir and orchestra, had its first performance at the Leeds Festival in 1907, and its success marked him from that date as a composer of power and promise. It was followed at the next Leeds Festival by ' A Sea Symphony' (to be heard on Friday from the North Regional Transmitter). This work confirmed the earlier promise and marked the beginning of his coming pie-eminence.

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.
