JOHN W. MORRIS (bass)
Like many other singers in South Wales, John W. Morris started life underground. At the age of nineteen he realised that his voice had possibilities, and began to study music. He continued his studies privately for two years and then became a pupil of the professor of singing at Cardiff University. After some years' training he began to compete in Eisteddfodau, with a considerable amount of success, and at the Royal National Eisteddfod of Wales at Neath in 1934 he was a member of the quartet that appeared in the final and was placed second.
Impressions of an Air Line Pilot by Flying-Officer C. R. CUBITT
Flying-Officer Cubitt has served in the Royal Air Force as a pilot for five years, flying single-seater fighters. After he left the service, he became an instructor to the Berks, Bucks, and Oxon Aero Club at Reading. He has toured the country giving passenger flights with his own machine. For the last three years he has been chief pilot to Western Airways, Limited, Bristol, flying on regular routes and doing special flights all over England and the Continent. In his talk he will give personal reminiscences and experiences, and he will compare flying conditions today with those of a few years ago.
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.
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.
