QUITE recently there have been some unusual and startling developments in the special line of cookery caused by that most useful kitchen utensil, the casserole. Miss Redington's talk this afternoon has, therefore, a special topical interest.

ANOTHER 'revue in miniature' from Rex
Evans and Rowland Leigh. Rex Evans has the intimate art of cabaret at his fingers' tips. The famous syncopated singer is shortly to make his first appearance in revue when Chariot's Show of 1928, as I believe it is to be called, comes to the Vaudeville Theatre. Rex Evans has been associated with Andre Chariot in many of his weekly broadcasts. Be sure to listen tonight. In Rowland Leigh we have one of the cleverest writers of smart lyrics-and Rex Evans and Co. certainly know how to ' put them across.'

PART I
IN the spring of 1869, on the shore of Lake
Lucerne, was born Wagner's son, Siegfried, named after Wagner's great symbolical hero. Shortly afterwards, Siegfried's mother was greeted, on her birthday morning, with a speciallywrittcn and very beautiful piece of music, the Siegfried Idyll.
All who are familiar with Wagner's great
Trilogy, The Ring of the Nibelungs, will recognize in the Idyll many tunes from various parts of that work, tunes mostly connected with Siegfrid and Brünnhilde. The melody which chiefly dominates the Idyll (it persists in the strings in the first section) is the chief melody in the great love-duet.
The only tune used which does not occur in the Ring Trilogy is an old German cradle song.
TN Parsifal the evil magician, Klingsor, angry at his exclusion from the sacred Knighthood of the Holy Grail, has created an enchanted castle and garden. Here, with the help of Kundry, a beautiful woman, and her attendant Flower Maidens, he tempts the Knights. Parsifal is led there, and in this scene we hear their seductive music.
IN Wagner's great Music Drama, The Dusk of th3 Gods, Siegfried, the hero, has won his bride, Briinnhilde. He gives her the Ring as pledge of his love, and she gives him her war-horse, Grane.
Siegfried now descends into the valley, and though in the opera house the curtain falls, the music continues to picture his journey, and his horn is frequently heard. After a time, the music tells us that he has reached the deeply-flowing Rhine.

: BB.C. PROMENADE CONCERT

PART II
SOME of the loveliest music of this century was left us by George Butterworth , who was killed in action in France, in August, 1916.
Of his small output, two song-cycles and this orchestral Rhapsody are founded on A. E. Housman 's poem-cycle, A Shropshire Lad. The song-cycles are, of course, settings of certain of the poems, while the Rhapsody is a sort of epilogue to the song-cycles-a reverie, perhaps, on the whole of A Shropshire Lad.

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.
