Carols

From Whitechapel
VERY early in the short history of broadcasting the Rev. John Mayo was one of the very first clergymen to take a sympathetic interest in the new medium, and he broadcast an address from the Studio the first Christmas that the B.B.C saw—in 1922. The carols relayed from his church in Whitechapel have been among the most successful of Christmas broadcasts, and listeners will be glad to hear them again this year.

CAROLS AND WAITS

FROM WHITECHAPEL CHURCH
SITUATED in the Whitechapel Road in the very heart of Old Whitechapel, the Church of St. Mary Matfelon rears a stately tower and noble front to the busy street. Built in early Gothic style, with a vaulted roof seventy-nine feet from the floor, and with accommodation for 1,600 worshippers, the church receives unstinted admiration from its many visitors. The present building is the fourth on the site. The record of rectors goes back to 1327, but the first church was much earlier, without doubt. The first erection had a tower the top courses of which were of white stone and the little building was promptly dubbed the ' White Chapel.' That name was in time given to the whole parish.
The present Rector, the Rev. John A. Mayo , has often been heard from the Studio during
Sunday evening services, being one of the first to give wireless sermons and a. staunch friend of broadcasting from the earliest days. Two years ago arrangements had been made to relay the Carols and Waits from the actual churchyard, but just as the transmission was about to begin the rain came down in torrents, and everyone concerned retreated into the church building itself, taking the microphone with them. The Carols were therefore relayed from the building, with very happy results.

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.
