Tracing History Backwards
'Government—Now and Then '—3
' Borough Councils and Urban District
Councils—Now '
Commander STEPHEN KING-HALL
The week before last, Commander Stephen King-Hall talked to you about county councils as they exist today, and last week Mr. K. C. Boswell told you about the shire before the days of county councils came.
It is now the turn for the government of cities and towns to be discussed, and, as before, the present day is to be dealt with first..... This afternoon, then, Commander King-Hall is going to tell you about borough councils and urban district councils and the duties they perform. Public health (street cleaning, lighting, sanitation), housing, education, roads, allotments—for all of these they are responsible, and for many other things.
2.25 Interval
2.30 .- Biology
' How Life is Lived '—3
' How Animals Hide '
Doris L. MACKINNON , D.Sc. (Professor of Zoology, King's College, University of London
There are many good examples of animals hiding though they remain in the open. The hare lying in its form in a ploughed field is so like the colour of its surroundings that you may literally tread on it before you see it. Have you ever found that most exquisitely created thing-the nest of a chaffinch ? You may stare at it from a yard away and not see it because the little bird has thatched the exterior of its nest with bits of lichen the exact colour of its surroundings.
This afternoon Professor Doris Mac kinnon is going to talk to you about this great scheme of nature for protecting wild creatures from their enemies. You have all heard of chameleons changing colour. She will show you how frogs to a less extent do the same. She will point out to you that it doesn't matter that an owl's eggs are white, because they are already hidden in a hole, but that the oyster-catcher's eggs are so coloured and speckled as to blend with the pebbles on which they are laid.

'THE WHITE COONS'

A Concert-Party Show
Revised and produced by Harry S. Pepper. Book written and remembered by C. Denier Warren
Cast
Tommy Handley , C. Denier Warren , Wynne Aiello , Dudley Rolph ,
Vera Lennox
At the pianos, Harry S. Pepper and Doris Arnold
The White Coons (as a concert party) made their last stage bow at
' Sandown, Isle of Wight, in September, 1925, after a non-stop run of many years at every seaside town of importance. Their proprietor was Will C. Pepper, father of Harry S. Pepper , who put them on the air.
' The idea that led to their debut on the air', he has recorded, ' came from John Watt , present Director of Variety, who rushed up to me one day and said : " I say, you are starting a series of White Coons soon", and rushed away again, leaving me staring after him saying feebly : " Oh, am I ? " '
It was among the happiest of ideas. They have been a constant feature in our summer programmes for five years or more, living up to their name of the ' Gay White Coons '. Among regular radio White Cooners, who will be broadcasting tonight, are Harry Pepper and Doris Arnold , at the pianos ; C. Denier Warren , who has invariably provided the material and done the compering ; and Wynne Ajello , alias Snow White, and lovely on the air, whatever she may do.
The White Coons were among the first to televise at Alexandra Palace, and very happy Harry Pepper was to put them in ruffles and pierrot costumes again. They will be without them tonight, but all the sparkle will be there. Gayer than ever in their first radio concert party of the second Great War.

Turner's orchestra, which made its debut in January last in ' Club Sandwich', is to play two works specially composed for the occasion by the conductor-one of these being a humorous piece descriptive of a day in the life of an intrepid airman.

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.
