The Victor Olof Sextet
Scottish Fantasia...Mulder
Glyn Eastman (bass)
The Asra...Rubinstein
Oh! Hold Thy Cheek to Mine...Jensen
The Sextet
To a Wild Rose/In Autumn/To a Waterlily/Told at Sunset...MacDowell
Here are four little tone-pictures from the set (originally for the Pianoforte) entitled Woodland Sketches. The fragile beauty of the first has something almost wistful in its tenderness. The Autumn of the second piece has neither the sense of sadness nor the richness of the 'season of mists and mellow fruitfulness' that we know. The impression is of the crisp, tingling freshness of the American 'Fall', that stimulates and invigorates.
Mary Crauford (soprano)
Old Man Might Have Been...Maurice Besley
Shepherd, Thy Demeanour Vary...arr. Lane Wilson
Love, I Have Won and Held You...Landon Ronald
Victor Olof (solo violin)
Aus Wien...Gaertner-Kreisler
Spanish Dance...Granados-Kreisler
Tambourine Chinois...Kreisler
Granados wrote four volumes of Spanish Dances for Piano, and this is one of them, arranged by Kreisler for Violin and Piano. The composer shows in places something of the same spirit of abandon as Brahms in his Hungarian Dances.
Enrique Granados was, like Albéniz (another leader among modern Spanish composers), a Catalonian, but was six years younger than he. Their music has some slight similarity, in addition to the sharing of general Spanish characteristics. In these dances, one particular Spanish feature is especially noticeable; the strong dance rhythms are so important that they frequently continue for many bars without any sort of tune.
Granados, in the second year of the war, lost his life through the sinking of the Sussex.

This is the first of a new series of talks, in which humorists of established reputation will give characteristic revelations of their personality. This evening the series will be, very appropriately, opened by Mr. Herbert, who has made himself famous as ' A.P.H.' in Punch, and is also the author of the book of Riverside Nights, the lively revue at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, which, listeners will remember, was broadcast in part on September 23.

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.
