: SYBIL ARUNDALE

A reading from ' GITANJALI ' (Song Offerings), by RABINDRANATH TAGORE. Prose Translations from the original Bengali
Music by MAUD MACCARTHY
MISS SYBIL ARUNDALE is an actress of great and varied experience, who has recently made several successful ventures into management. She produced The Wild Duck at the Everyman Theatre, Hampstead, last year, and brought it to the St. James's Theatre-an unusual tenant for the theatre made famous by Sir George Alexander; and in general her Ibsen season did much to prove that Ibsen's popularity has waned surprisingly little since the days when 'he burst upon a startled Europe as the exponent, if not altogether of a new morality, at least of a new technique. Sir Rabindranath Tagore, one of whose poems Miss Arundale is reading this afternoon, is the most notable living Indian poet, writer, and teacher. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913, and his school at Santiniketan, in Bengal,- has become the centre of an influence that has spread far beyond the borders of his own country...

ROYAL NATIONAL ORTHOPÆDIC HOSPITAL. Appeal by the Rt. Hon. Tho LORD MAYOR OF London (Sir RowLAND BLADES)
THE Royal National Orthopedic Hospital, in Great Portland Street, W.I, is designed for the treatment and cure of all crippled and deformed patients, and is further specially devoted to the care of children, who form seventy-five per cent. of those treated. The new country branch at Stanmore, Middlesex, alone has 118 beds for crippled children, and is used largely for the open-air treatment that has been proved so effective for these cases.

relayed from the Grand Hotel, Eastbourne
Orchestra:
Figaro, the famous town barber of Seville, was a creation of Beaumarehais. He is in both this Opera of Rossini and Mozart's "Marriage of Figaro". In this gay 'patter' song he struts about, proclaiming the delights of being trusted and looked up to by all sorts of people, especially lovers, who confide in him and ask his advice and help. Tchaikovsky imagines a traveller who looks around him on the beauties of vale and hill and ocean, and on the glories, of the heavens; With a heart full of thanksgiving he sings this benediction.
Among the last pieces Schubert wrote is this Serenade, one of the two or three best-loved tunes among all his six hundred odd songs. Its mood is struck in the lover's fervent opening words (of which translations differ slightly): "My songs, gently entreating, plead with thee to come to rue in this silent grove."
Liszt was a great lover of the music of the gipsies of Hungary, and made a number of their tunes into Rhapsodies - a term he used, so he said, because he felt that it best expressed the epic element in the gipsies' performances. In his book "The Gipsies and their Music in Hungary" he gives a stirring account of such performances. Most of his twenty Rhapsodies were composed on his return in 1839 from a tour abroad, on which occasion a sword of honour was presented to him by Hungarian nobles. They were Piano solos, and Liszt later arranged some for Piano duets, and orchestrated a few.
Handel's "Largo" comes from an Opera which he wrote 'in great haste' in 1738 when, after some disastrous experiences in the business side of operatic production, he thought he saw a chance of greater success (which unfortunately did not immediately come to him). For "Xerxes" and one other Opera, together with a third made up from earlier works, he got £1,000.

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.
