: Empire Dental Association Meeting A. T. PITTS

This talk was planned in connection with the first Empire Dental Meeting held in London from July 27 to 30, and was originally intended to coincide with it. Various circumstances caused the talk to be postponed until this evening, but the subject is none the less important. Modern technique in dentistry is a thing that concerns every listener, and this talk on the position and claims of dentistry, stated by a leading dentist, will probably appeal to a large audience.

: Salzburg Festival THE VIENNA PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA Conductor, BRUNO WALTER

from the Mozarteum, Salzburg
Despite the fact that Brahms's four symphonies differ from each other both in emotional impulse and in various details of design, they are aesthetically of equal importance and belong to a symphonic style that may be described as romantic, though cast in a classical mould. The D major Symphony, for instance, is as lyrical and romantic in expression as any contemporary German music of the time.
If the tragic Symphony No. I in C minor was a great success on its first appearance, Symphony No. 2 in D with its happier and more idyllic feelings was an even greater one. Although conceived on just as big a scale as the C minor Symphony, the texture of the music is actually very much clearer, the melodies more cantabile in character, and the whole spirit of the music brighter -it has been called Brahms's ' Pastoral' Symphony.

Selection from the Monthly Revues
Jack Strachey , one of the most successful of modern lyric writers and composers, started composing in concert parties after the war. He toured the East and Far East as pianist in Bobbie Salisbury 's " Quaints ' ; played a season at Blackpool, and was with Leonard Henry at Margate.
His first accepted compositions were in Punch Bowl, 1924, and in Chariot's Revue, 1925. Then he composed the score of Ladv Luck , produced at the Carlton two years later, and of So This is Love, produced at the Winter Garden the following year. He had numbers in Chariot's Masquerade, 1930, Savoy Follies, Chelsea Follies, and wrote the Pageant of Parliament ballet music,
1934.
He began composing for radio revues in January, 1935, and wrote many of the lyrics for all the monthly revues. In March this year, with Holt Marvell , he wrote Lots of Love, which is to be revived next October. His most successful recent song is ' Those Foolish Things ', originally written for the March Revue.
Of those who are to sing some of his numbers tonight, Anne Ziegler first broadcast in Love Needs a Waltz, Cavan O'Connor won fame as the Vagabond Lover, and Gordon Little , another well-known broadcaster, played in Stop Press at the Vaudeville last year.

: A Recital

by WALTER WIDDOP (tenor)
Walter Widdop was born near Halifax and began his career as a clerk with the Bradford Dyes Association. It was not until his twentieth year that he began to study singing, and after a year he competed successfully in various festivals. He then came to London and studied opera at the London Opera School and in 1923 made his debut in Aïda at Leeds. Later, he toured Britain with the British National Opera Company and the Covent Garden Opera Company. In 1930, Mr. Widdop visited America, singing at the Cincinnati Festival and at Chicago. He has also sung in Spain in a performance of The Valkyries conducted by Albert Coates.

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.
