THE LONDON ENSEMBLE:
Harold Fairhurst (violin); Helen Just (Violoncello) ; Hetty Bolton (pianoforte)
GWEN JACKSON (Soprano)
COMPOSED originally for clarinet, violoncello and pianoforte, this Trio is often played with the violin replacing the clarinet, which it can do quite satisfactorily here. Slightly built, like the three early Trios which make up Beethoven's Opus 1—the most wonderful Opus i in existence, as many call it-it is all melodious and easy to understand, and it has the special interest of having its last movement based on a tune which Beethoven borrowed specially for the purpose. It is an old air, popular in its day, which would long ago have been forgotten but for his use of it-a jolly little tune on which Beethoven makes a series of lively variations.

HAYDN STRING QUARTETS, OP. I
Played by THE STRATTON STRING QUARTET:
George Stratton (violin)
Carl Taylor (violin)
Watson Forbes (viola)
John Moore (violoncello)
Quartet in E Flat (No. 2) i. Allegro molto; 2. Menuetto; 3. Adagio; 4. Menuetto ; 5. Presto
THE STRATTON STRING QUARTET was formed seven years ago and has been broadcasting regularly for the last five years. The members include in their repertory many modern British works and gave the first performance in Berlin of the Elgar quartet, and (with Harriet Cohen ) the Bax pianoforte quintet.
Their rehearsals are held in a Chelsea house of great historic interest; over a hundred years ago it was known as the Prince of Wales' Tavern, and in the ancient arched cellar (to which the Stratton Quartet retreats during heat waves) were still at that time to be seen the furnaces of the Chelsea Potteries.

: 'Words by ...'

A programme of favourite songs with words written by EDWARD LOCKTON
SOPHIE ROWLANDS (soprano)
FRANK TITTERTON (tenor)
KENNETH ELLIS (bass)
Compere, EDWARD LOCKTON
MR. LOCKTON, who is the person mainly concerned in this broadcast, is the author of the words of all the songs which are about to be sung. The writer of lyrics for setting to music rarely gets the credit for his work as he deserves. The flowing lyrics to which ballad singers are accustomed, have, to be successful, to be put together with a complete understanding cf the demands of the music, the singer, and the audience, and a rare and special technique has to be brought to their construction.
Mr. Lockton, who, by the way, writes also under the name of Edward Teschemacher, is one of the most successful lyric writers of recent times. More than eighteen hundred of his lyrics, including eighty song-cycles, have been set to music and published, and a very large number owe at least some of their success to him. A list of his better-known songs have become world-famous; for example, 'Because', 'Where My Caravan has Rested', 'Down Vauxhall Way', 'Until', 'I know a lovely Garden', 'Shipmates o' Mine', 'O Lovely Night', and 'Tommy Lad '. These and others belong to an imposing list of composers, Tosti, Sir Frederic Cowen, Leoncavallo, Sir Landon Ronald, Montague Phillips, Eric Coates, Haydn Wood, Teresa del Riego, Wilfrid Sanderson, Easthope Martin, Frances Allitsen, Hermann Lohr, Herbert Oliver, W. H. Squire, Guy d'Hardelot, Evelyn Sharpe, and many others. The artists who have sung naturally include many of the greatest; for example, Caruso, Santley, Clara Butt, McCormack, Melba, and others. He is still writing, being set, and being sung.
This, however, is not the full extent of Mr. Lockton's contribution to song. A great number of Lieder, those of Schubert, Schumann, Tchaikovsky, and Liszt, for example, have been translated into English by him, and even opera and oratorio have received his attention. Brahms's Requiem has been done by him into English, and the most difficult of all, Wagner's Parsifal.

: Whither Britain?: 5: Mr George Bernard Shaw

The most piquant contributor to the present series. Prominent Fabian, like previous speaker Wells; but whereas Wells has been something of a professional prophet, Shaw has centralised his talents rather on breaking the images of past and present.
Extremely kind, but pretends not to be. Pulls legs. Can get more wit on a postcard than most humorists can crowd on a sheet of foolscap. Born in Dublin, 1856; came to London, 1876; free-lanced; suffered through the application of a new antiseptic; years later he pilloried medicals in The Doctor's Dilemma, and seems to have done pretty well without them.
First play Widower's Houses, produced at Royalty Theatre, London, 1892. Came into his own with the Vedrenne-Barker Management at the Court, 1904 to 1906. He had 'scintillated' for the Fabian Society since 1884; was awarded Nobel Prize for Literature, 1925.
Vegetarian; Socialist; recreations, anything except sport. Pretends to be unsentimental, but showed himself the most romantic of men by his championship of Ibsen. St. Joan, New Theatre, 1924. Plays now performed all over the world. No clearer or more charming voice is ever likely to speak into the microphone. Has added the word 'Shavian' to the English language.

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.
