BETTY Bannerman (Contralto)
Ashmoor BURCH (Baritone)
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
THE leading composers have for the most part neglected the Military Band, as though so popular a medium were unworthy of their best ideas. Times are changing, and more and more the great composers are realizing that the band is in every way as well adapted for presenting their music as the concert orchestra may do.
Gustav Hoist is among the few modern British musicians who have given the Military Band a fair share of their best work, composing, among other music, two vigorous and thoroughly popular Suites for it. The second one is largely based on folk tunes, as the names of the movements set forth, and the only further point of interest for listeners is that the two tunes which are cunningly welded together in the last movement are the same which Mr. Holst uses so happily in his St. Paul's Suite for Strings.

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.
