Conducted by Lieut. B. WALTON O'DONNELL, M.V.O., F.R.A.M., R.M., relayed from The New Chenil Galleries, Chelsea
SIR ALEXANDER MACKENZIE has had a long and busy musical life. t.e was born in 1847, and has, happily, by no means retired from active life. Latterly he has been engaged in writing liis reminiscences.
He has written a good deal of music for stale works - Marmion, Ravenswood, Coriolanus, and Barrie's Little Minister, which was produced at the Haymarket Theatre in 1897. All the tunes in the Overture are original, except the familiar air of Duncan Cray, which peeps in dining the first half of the piece, and is a good deal used in the ' development.' Barrie himself suggested the use of this tune.
THIS piece was composed for performance by the massed Bands at Wembley on Empire Day two years ago. It is built upon a number of somewhat unfamiliar tunes, the first of which, Il adg Bui (Yellow Tim) was taken down by the Composer from a singer of folk-songs in County Cork. An Antrim tune, and snatches of The Green Ribbon, lead to the appearance, as a Euphonium solo, of A long the Ocean Shore. The Clarinets next start a chorus Jig,' and a Pipers' Dance is heard a little later. Two more tunes are used, and then the last section is made out of two Reels.


Bass: Stuart Robertson

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
