: COUNTRY WALKS AND THOUGHTS'

Alexander Keith
Many listeners will remember the voice of the ' Scottish Mr. Middleton ' when he broadcast his regular gardening talks before the war. Alexander Keith is an Aberdeen journalist with a delightfully intimate and informal manner at the microphone. He talks of the countryside, wild life, birds, flowers, trees, and even history with the voice of the ordinary man who is an enthusiast but not a specialist.

: DEBUSSY'S SONGS-1

Settings of Paul Verlaine
Green ] (from the 11 pleut dans mon cceur > ' Ariettes Chevaux de bois J oubliees ') Clair de lune }(FĂȘtes galantes (Set 1))
Fantoches sung by Megan Foster (soprano)
Of all branches of musical composition the French excel in that of song. Of the many great French song composers, one of the greatest was undoubtedly Debussy. He worked at a particularly rich and productive period in poetry-when the symbolists, such as Mallarme, Baudelaire, and Verlaine were at the height of their powers. At that period of the nineteenth century French poets extolled music and French musicians extolled poetry. One of Debussy's favourite poets was Verlaine, many of whose 'musical' poems he set with rare insight and understanding of their subtleties.
Listeners will have the opportunity of hearing some of Debussy's settings of other contemporary poets in this series of recitals.

: Edward Cooper and Dorothy C.arless in 'RED PEPPERS'

An interlude with music by Noel Coward
The action passes on the stage, in a dressing-room, and on the stage again of a provincial music-hall
The Revue Orchestra
Leader, Boris Pecker
Conducted by Hyam Greenbaum
Production by Reginald Smith
This little episode is a typical example on Noel Coward 's versatility. While he can on the one hand write with moving sincerity on human affairs, he can on the other pull the human leg with almost diabolical skill.
Red Peppers is an episode in the lives of a typical 'husband and wife ' third-rate music-hall act. For years these two, known professionally as the Red Peppers, have toured provincial theatres of Britain. With piercing satire Coward shows you the act on the stage, and the same act behind the scenes.
Red Peppers was one of the short plays in Tonight at 8.30, produced in the West End a year or two ago. Red Peppers was produced twice for television.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
