This is the twenty-second annual Cymanfa held by this church. The origin of the series is interesting because it was a direct result of the Great War. In 1914, this church was greatly hampered by a shortage of young men. It was impossible to attempt an oratorio as in previous years, so a Cymanfa was held, and has been held annually ever since with very great success.
Its success in the earlier years was due to the choirmaster, the late W. T. Davies , who founded the tradition of good choral singing attributed to the church. His successor, R. W. Morgan , is serving his fiftieth year as church organist.
Among the outstanding men who have conducted this Cymanfa are the late Dr. Caradoc Roberts, Dr. T.
Hopkin Evans, Dr. David Evans, and Mr. Idris Griffiths, of whom three are natives of Resolven. Dr. Caradoc Roberts conducted the Cymanfa eight times. It is fitting therefore that this year's programme should include an anthem ' Nid Marw'r Gan ' (by T. Hopkin Evans ) which is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Roberts. This will be the first public rendering of this new work, and it will be conducted by the composer.

Organist and Choir-master,
This building originally belonged to the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion and was built by that famous lady in 1759. The church is almost masked from the road by the house which the Countess built for her preachers, but the inside is picturesque. The original pulpit used for years by the well-known preacher, the Rev. George Whitfield , is still in its place and has in front of it an eagle in gold and white.

An appeal on behalf of THE WHITECROFT JUBILEE PLAYING FIELDS, by Captain KENNETH SHENNAN , Hon. Secretary of the Gloucestershire Playing
Fields Association
This scheme to provide playing fields for the village of Whitecroft was the outcome of a decision to commemorate the Jubilee of last year. Beginnings were made on derelict land on a sloping site consisting of large dirt tips from disused pits, and twenty-two men have undertaken voluntarily the difficult task of laying out the field from which they have already removed 500 tons of soil.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to[address removed]

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.
