: ' ROMANCE '

By EDWARD SHELDON
An Excerpt from Act 1.. relayed from the Playhouse Theatre
Cast :
A November evening.
EDWARD SHELDON 'S now famous play was first produced in America in 1913, and in England (at the Duke of York's Theatre, Loridon, after a try-out at Eastbourne) in October. 1915, when it ran for over a thousand performances. On both these occasions, as again in the American revival in 1921, Miss Doris Keane played Margherita Cavallini. which is her favourite and most successful part. Mr. Owen Nares , to-night's Thomas Armstrong , also created this role in the original production in England, and Mr. Cecil Humphreys took up the part of Cornelius Van Tuvl in August, 1916. The present production has, therefore. all the appeal of the original, in addition to the fact that the stars who appear in it have added many thousands to the list of their admirers in the years between.

: BACH

Interpreted by CLAUD BIGGS
French Suite, No. 4, in E Flat
BACH'S Keyboard Suites are strings of short
Movements in contrasted styles, most of them derived from the rhythms of the dance.
His French Suites are written in the light style that the French then favoured in their music.
In the Fourth Suite are seven short pieces :-
ALLEMANDE. The simple little motif of the first four or five notes, as simply treated, make up the whole thing.
COURANTE. The smooth triplet theme in the right hand of the opening bars, with the jerky tune that accompanies it in the left hand, supply the material for a pleasant, easy-going little piece.
SARABANDE. As in the previous movement, at the outset are heard, in the two hands, two rhythmically constructed tunes, and out of these the movement grows.
GAVOTTE. Neatly woven, in merely two strands, out of the little group of four notes with which it opens.
MENUET. Very brief. Merely sixteen bars plus repeats.
Air. The word ' Air,' as understood to-day, hardly applies ; this is not a flowing tune with accompaniment, but a two-voice contrapuntal treatment of the simplest possible theme-one octave of the major scale.
GIGUE. A gay treatment of a jaunty little tune.

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.
