Written and arranged for broadcasting by HERBERT FARJEON
Music by REGINALD REDMAN and MICHAEL SAYER
Production by CYRIL WOOD
This programme is designed to mark the opening of the Cricket season. It was broadcast for the first time in May last year, and all the items with two exceptions are by Herbert Farjeon , the well-known dramatic critic and the author of the recently-produced revue Spread It Abroad. In ' Willow the King ' the author has assembled a number of widely-contrasted aspects of cricket-there is a prologue spoken by the Spirit of W. G. Grace ; a ' blues ' song' I've got those Long-on Blues ' ; echoes of cricket talk in pavilions, and under trees among yokels when the game is over, and on the sands ; a plea for kindness to children who hit the ball over the wall into the next back-garden; and a description of the most exciting Test Match ever played

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

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
