Mr. ALLEN WALKER. ' Walks Through
London-Westminster '
WESTMINSTER is not merely the historic seat of government of tho -kingdom ; the site, for nearly two thousand years, of the Abbey in which the kings of England have been crowned, of the Parliament House, the Law Courts (for Westminster Hill was. until the opening of the Law Courts in the Strand, in 1882, the legal hub of the country) and the Government offices. In addition to all these formal glories so well known to tho sightseer, old Westminster contains many nóoks and corners with a secluded ehcrm of their own -for instance, the cloisters of the Abbey where the famous Westminster School is housed, the little old streets between Dean's Yard and the big new office buildings on Millbank, and the touch of a vanished dignity that lingers in Queen Anne's Gate. Mr. Allen Walker is among the most erudite and the most discerning lovers of old London, and thoae who have heard his lectures on such subjects, or his architectural Talks broadcast last year, will have every confidence in accepting him as a guide.

: SCHUBERT

Interpreted by FRANKLYN KELSEY An die Leyer (To the Lyre)
Gruppe aus dem Tartarus (A Group from
Tartarus)
Dithyrambe (Dithyramb)
Der Geistertanz (The Spirit Dance)
Die Allmacht (Omnipotence)
TO THE LYRE is a setting of a poem by Anacreon translated into German. It is one of those songs of Schubert that, with their stately declamation and rhetorical seriousness, seem to be written for some State occasion. It is a particularly fine example of Schubert's larger style.
In the Group from Tartarus Schubert again displays that power of grim descriptiveness of which there has been more than one example in this week's recitals. Perhaps lie never painted a more vivid picture than this vision of the restless spirits in the underworld.
In contrast to the dramatic quality of the preceding songs, the Dithyramb is purely lyric. It has three similar verses, addressed to the gods, poetry, life, wine and things in general. A Dithyramb is a lofty and vehement outburst common amongst Athenian poets
What is said above of To the Lyre is true also of Omnipotence, a fine declamatory pæan to Jehovah, ' who is heard in the rushing storm and'seen in glittering gold and lovely flowers ; who flames in fire ; who is thunder and lightning.'

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
