SCHUBERT'S WINTERREISE
Sung by PARRY Jones (Tenor)
D AS WIRTSHAUS (The Wayside Inn). The wanderer stands in a graveyard, and sees in the garland on a tomb a symbol of an] inn-sign. The only resting place for him is the tomb. But even in this place there is no room for him. Still onward he must go.
Mut. (Courage). He plucks up bitter courage and mocks at the heart's complaining.
Die Nebensonnen. (The Mock Suns.) He sees in the heavens a mirage-three suns where one should be. He once had three suns of hope, but now two are gone. Surely, it would be better if the last were to expire.
Der Leiermann. (The Hurdy-gurdy Man.) In the last song of aU he stands and watches a poor old hurdy-gurdy man, who patiently turns the handle, rain or shine. ' Let us go together, you and I,' he cries, ' I will make the songs and you shall play them.'

: ' Round Britain in a Light Seaplane '—A Description by Colonel the MASTER OF SEMPILL and the Hon. Mrs. FORBES SEMPILL

THE light aeroplane has come greatly into vogue in the last year or two; on the one hand, crack pilots have accomplished wonderful feats in it, and on tho other hand, it is calling into being an ' owner-driver ' class of the air This evening's talk should help to draw attention to the equally great potentialities of the light seaplane. The Master of Sempill, who has been very prominent in the flying world ever since he joined the R.F.C. in August, 1914, and Mrs. Forbes Sempill have recently completed a tour of the British coastline, including the North of Scotland, in a light seaplane, and this evening they will describe the pleasures of such a trip.

: Viennese Dances and Marches

OLIVE GROVES (Soprano)
THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOHN ANSELL
THE Vienna in which these
Dances and Marches had their birth, centred, as it was, round a very brilliant Court, must have been a town in which gaiety was fully understood. There ia nothing forced or feigned about the happiness which sparkles in all these light-hearted tunes.
Among the composers who contributed to the heritage of dance music which is still held in affectionate regard, long after the dances for which they were composed have passed out of fashion, Johann Strauss holds undoubtedly the highest place.
It was one of his waltzes, probably the best known and best loved of them all, to which Mr.
. Arnold Bennett paid what must be a unique tribute from one art to another. He calls' The Blue Danube ' Waltz, ' That unique classic of the ballroom which, more than any other work of art, unites all Western nations in a common delight.'








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.
