: Mr. WALTER LEARY, Life in Australia'

MR. LEARY is a successful emigrant who went out to Australia some years ago and is at present on several months' holiday in this country. Listeners will thus be given evidence at first hand on a question that, quite regardless of whether they have a personal and intimate interest in the subject, is of deepest import to all Englishmen. This talk is the first of a short series which will be continued at 7.25 p.m. on September 3 and 10. In addition, during the autumn months there will be a monthly talk on ' Migration,' under the auspices of the Overseas Settlement Department.

Conducted by CHARLES LEGGETT
SIR FREDERIC COWEN never had any doubt, even from his earliest years that music and nothing but music was to be his career. At the age of eight, he produced an operetta with the title Garibaldi, to a libretto by a relative of equally tender years. Sir Frederic relates that the piece ran successfully for two nights in the home theatre. Since then, his busy life has been spent in conducting and composing, and much of his best-known work is eloquently descriptive of England and English ways.
All the Dances in this Suite are conceived in the olden style. The first is a stately dance which has nevertheless its moments of robust vigour, alternating with its dignified movement. The second is a swift-footed rustic dance, the tune tripping along for the most part merrily on the woodwinds; the third is a graceful dance, with something of the stately formality of No. 1, and the final number is a country dance, again with something of the rustic character which its name implies. It used to be supposed that the name owed its origin to the French 'contre-danse,' but it now seems to be clear that the name means exactly what it says, and that the dance was introduced into polite society from the farms and villages long before the French dance made its way over here.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
