: FAMOUS BALLADS

for chorus and orchestra
The BBC Chorus
The BBC Orchestra
(Section B)
Leader, .Paul Beard
Conducted by Leslie Woodgate
Powell Lloyd (tenor)
Samuel Worthington (bass)
Thomas Wood, author, traveller, composer, and folk-song collector, is surely one of the most versatile of living musicians. His broad outlook on life and keen sense of humour permeate all he does.
His choral ballad ' Daniel and the Lions ' was first performed at a studio concert in January last year. The words are by the American poet, Nicholas Vachel Lindsay (1879-1931) and are well known under the title ' The Daniel Jazz '. It is a poetic fantasy and in it Darius the Mede has for his chief hired man one Daniel. As well as ' Stirring up the jazz in the palace band ', Daniel was the butler who had to answer the bell to ' Saints so holy, scamps so appalling'. Among the visitors are Ahab, Elisha, Pharaoh, Cain and his wife, Shadrach, Meshach, and Adbednego, St. Peter, Judas, Beelzebub, Jonah, the Whale, and the Sea. It is all fantastic nonsense, giving Wood an excellent opportunity of showing his musical versatility.

: ' IF A AND B '

A short story written for broadcasting by Graham Sutton and read by the author
Graham Sutton is as good a radio short-story writer as he is a mountaineer-and here is another of his carefree Lakeland episodes.
It is written in the same easy style that characterised ' The Man who Broke the Needle', which was rebroadcast a few weeks ago. Today's problem, however, is not one of rock-climbing, but of four people, with two bicycles between them, getting to a given point at a given hour in the most time-saving way.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
