GERRARD WILLIAMS was originally an architect by profession, and music was no more than an enthusiastic hobby until he wus over thirty. Since then he has devoted himself to composition and has won many successes. Largely self-taught, he has evolved a style which is very much his own, although there is nothing in his music of that ultra-modern order which makes it difficult to understand and enjoy. It is mostly characterised by sturdy rhythm and is all wholesome, virile music. He is equally at home with the ordinary concert orchestra or with tho Military Band, and the literature for this latter somewhat neglected combination is richer within the last year or two by more than one interesting work of his, and by many effective arrangements. Among the more important of his own works which have already been broadcast are the Ballad opera, Charming Chloe, the operetta, The Tale of a Shoe, as well as a suite made up from it, and a fine example of his chamber music, his second String Quartet.

OUR grandfathers counted Donizetti as one of the great masters of melody, holding his operas in a very warm affection. The Daughter was produced in Parisin 1840, and before long, made its way to opera houses abroad: its blend of simple melody and light-hearted merriment, with a flavouring of sentiment, has always attracted singers as well as audiences, and such great artists as Jenny Lind , Sonlag, Patti, and Albani enjoyed playing the title r6le.
Donizetti was a soldier for some years, and in making the Italian libretto himself was on familiar ground. In the first act, which begins while a battle is in progress near the home of the Countess of Berkenfeld, Maria is brought there by Sulpizio, a sergeant in the regiment which claims her as its daughter : she had been found as a mere infant on a battlefield and brought up among the soldiers. There is a merry scene in which she goes through her drill, and sings, with Sulpizio, the famous Rataplan duet, playing the drum herself. The sergeant then prevails on her to tell him about a young man who saved her life on the verge of a dangerous precipice. Tonio, the young man himself, makes an unexpected appearance immediately afterwards ; the soldiers have captured him, and, but for Maria's intercession, would have shot him as a spy. He sets their suspicions at rest by enlisting in the regiment. He and Maria love one another, but no sooner have they confessed that, than the Countess claims the girl as her niece, and insists on carrying her off to her chateau. Tonio and the regiment take a sad farewell of her. In the second act, in the chateau, Maria is learning tho airs and graces proper to her station: but with the old sergeant at hand, for he has remained by her side, she must now and again break into the old song of the regiment. Tonio returns, now as an officer —commissioned for valour on the field-and at, the end the two young people are happily united.

: Saving Graces

By H.M. Postmaster General, the Rt. Hon. SIR H. KINGSLEY WOOD , M.P.
THIS is the first talk by the new Postmaster-General, Sir H. Kingsley Wood, who is the senior partner in a City firm of solicitors, and was elected as Unionist member for West Woolwich in 1918. He was Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Health in the Conservative Government of 1924-29, and introduced the Early Closing Bill in 1920 and the Summer Time and Allotments Bills in 1924. He gave valuable help to Mr. Chamberlain when the Local Government Act was passing through the House of Commons; while in Opposition he was a prominent critic of the Labour Government's housing policy. He is chairman of the Executive Committee of the National Conservative and Unionist Association, and for a number of years served on the London County Council. He is speaking this evening about the Post Office Savings Bank, a subject of present interest.

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.
