: FINALS DAY AT WIMBLEDON AND HENLEY

and THE FESTIVAL OF YOUTH at the Empire Stadium, Wembley
Between 2.0 and 5.15 there will be commentaries on three outstanding events today. The actual timings are uncertain, especially with regard to Henley. But at 2.0 there will be an announcement and listeners will then know exactly when the particular events they are interested in are likely to be broadcast.
Youth at Wembley
There will be ten thousand performers in the Festival of Youth at Wembley in aid of King George's Jubilee Trust. Women and girls, men and boys, will be played into position in the arena by the massed bands of the Brigade of Guards. Fanfares will announce the arrival of Their Majesties, which will be followed by the National Anthem. The performers will march past and then the various items will be given -physical training, maypole dancing, folk dancing, and the special feature, 'The Playing Fields of the Future '.
Wimbledon
It is hoped to include the Finals of the Ladies' Singles, the Men's Doubles, and the Mixed Doubles, and commentaries will be given by Colonel R. H. Brand and Captain H. B. T. Wakelam for the tenth year in succession. But this year, in addition, another voice will be heard, that of F. H. Grisewood.
Henley
The commentators - John Snagge , and various famous rowing men whom he will call on at Henley-will be in a special box near the winning-post. They will look down the course, with Phyllis Court on their left and the Stewards' Enclosure on their right, and see a ribbon of water lined by booms, with punts moored to them. There is only one Henley-minstrels, gaiety, Leander ties. Boards are fixed at quarter-mile intervals, which show the positions of the boats as they pass. Thus the commentators will be able to tell listeners about the progress of each race. It is hoped to include the Finals of the Grand Challenge Cup and the Diamond Sculls.
The National programme may be broken into by commentaries from Wimbledon by Colonel R. H. Brand and Captain H. B. T. Wakelam from 5.15 to 6.0

Winifred Small (violin)
Maurice Cole (pianoforte) Schumann's Violin Sonata in D minor, Op. 121, is the second of two sonatas composed at Dusseldorf in 1851. The public performance took place at Leipzig in 1854. In a letter to a friend Joachim wrote: To me it is one of the finest creations of modern times, in the wonderful unity of its feeling and the significance of its themes. It is full of a noble passion-almost harsh and bitter in its expression-and the last movement might almost remind one of a seascape, with its glorious waves of sound.' Jean Francaix belongs to the post-war generation of French composers. He was born at Le Mans in 1912, but later went to Paris where he studied at the Conservatoire under Nadia Boulanger. When he was twenty, one of his compositions was performed at the Vienna Contemporary Music Festival and in the same year his First Symphony was performed in Paris under Pierre Monteux. At Baden-Baden last year his Piano Concertino was given its first performance and soon afterwards was broadcast in a BBC studio concert. In a RADIO Times article on the composer Alan Frank summed up his music as follows: 'Françaix's music is not quite like any other music written today. It is entertaining, but not humorous in the sense that Poulenc's is .... It is music that is as delicate as the lightest white wine imaginable and the one should be listened to exactly as the other is drunk. You will probably find that it lacks substance, but you will certainly not find it stodgy.'

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.
