Third Week-Various Songs interpreted by FRANKLYN KELSEY
An die Musik (To Music)
Krieger's Ahnung (The Warrior's Foreboding) Auf dem Wasser zu Singcn (A River Song) Der Doppelganger (The Self-Haunted One) Aufenthalt (The Resting Place)
ALMOST from his boyhood Franz Schubert
(1797-1828) was writing songs that were afterwards to ba famous. Tn the course of his lamentably short life, lived obscurely in Vienna, he wrote over six hundred. Before his day the art of song-writing was surrounded with formalities; even Handel and Mozart, who wrote many great songs, or Arias as they were more often called, bowed to the conventions that prescribed the shape of their songs and almost the type of melody that was permissible. The genius of Schubert, a bom creator of melodies, threw off these fetters. He was a lyrical poet in sounds who wrote as his inspiration directed. Graceful, buoyant, grim, dramatic, tragic, numerous, informal, formal-every kind of melody or mood came to his mind and pen, spontaneously and naturally, at tile suggestion of a poet's verse.
So Schubert freed the art of song-writing, and the world has been beholden to him ever since. But none has rivalled the pioneer and master.

: A TOPICAL NOVELTY

Throughout the week at this hour Mr. Flotsam and Mr. JETSAM will give a MUSICAL NEWS BULLETIN composed and sung by themselves
MR. FLOTSAM and Mr. Jetsam' are specialists in a form of humour new to this country-the rapid resume, in patter verse, with a running fire of humorous comment, of the previous day's news. Although they have never broadcast before, their type of humour is admirably suited to broadcasting, and they should do much to enliven the evening programmes throughout this week.

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.
