: A TRIP TO THE CALEDONIAN MARKET

Norman Lambert
The Caledonian Market is known to a great many people as a place for picking up antiques or bric-a-brac. It is also a shopping centre, a market for fish, vegetables, and meat -in short, a resort of the average housewife as well as of the collector. Norman Lambert , the plain man, escorts his wife to market and is to give his impressions of a useful day's shopping.

: Gramophone Records THE GROWTH OF THE SCHERZO-1

Scherzo is an Italian word meaning ' jest ' or ' joke ', and in a piece of music in sonata or symphony form the scherzo is usually the lightest of its movements. It was Beethoven who substituted the scherzo for the classical minuet which, up to his time, usually formed the third movement of a work in sonata style. Even Haydn's minuet movements had got further away from the dance form and anticipated the scherzo of Beethoven. The present series of programmes will show the development of the scherzo from its beginning, by way of Schubert, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Chopin, and Berlioz, up to its latest manifestations-Dukas's ' L'Apprenti sorcier ' and the scherzo movements of the symphonies of Vaughan Williams and William Walton.

: A RECITAL

by Wilfrid Parry (pianoforte)
Wilfrid Parry studied at the Trinity College of Music, where he won the Chappell Gold Medal and was awarded a Fellowship for solo playing at the age of seventeen. After he had finished his studies he joined the teaching staff of Trinity College, but resigned after a few years to devote all his time to playing. A member of Gershom Parkington's Quintet, he has also appeared many times before the microphone as a soloist and in sonata recitals and chamber concerts. Many listeners will remember that in December, 1936, Mr. Parry gave the first broadcast performance with the BBC Orchestra of Haydn Wood's Piano Concerto.

: TWO-RING CIRCUS

John Snagge at
Bertram Mills's Circus, Olympia and Thomas Woodrooffe at
Althoff's International Circus
Royal Agricultural Hall,
Islington
Tonight listeners are to hear broadcasts from two great Christmas circuses. Three weeks ago they heard a broadcast of a rehearsal at Bertram Mills's training quarters at Ascot. It will make it all the more interesting that tonight, with the curtain up at Olympia, the wonderful horses that were then going through their paces will be in action in the ring-to say nothing of the wealth of talent engaged, not forgetting King Tuffy, said to be the world's only lion tight-rope walker.
Three men are responsible for the Christmas circus at Islington year after year : William Wilson , show-man all his life, who has been associated with the Royal Agricultural Hall for over thirty years ; his co-director, Charles Cullen , who has been linked with it for more than forty years ; and Stanley Wathon , who travels the world seeking for the best talent.
The circus which they have engaged for this year and which listeners are to hear tonight, is the celebrated Circus Althoff , the oldest travelling ring-show in Europe. Ancestor Althoff began with a gaggle of geese, and the circus that arose out of it has been handed down in an unbroken line to the founder's great-granddaughter, pretty Carola Althoff , like her sisters, an expert horsewoman. The pride of the circus is the famous troupe of Tiger-Check liberty horses. And among other star turns are the Frenchman, Alfred Court , who appears in a cage with lions, tigers, bears, and leopards ; the Four Beresinas, in their high-wire act ; and elephants that are almost human.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
