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.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
