'Fasting and Feasting'
Before entering upon his present appointment as Editor of the Church Times (which he has now held for two years), Mr. Sidney Dark had a most varied and interesting career. His father was the proprietor of Lord's cricket ground, and he himself found his way into journalism by way of the Royal Academy of Music and the stage. Later he worked on the staff of the Daily Mail, and was then for many years a special correspondent to the Daily Express; and from 1919 to 1924 he was joint editor of John O' London's Weekly. The many experiences of his well-filled life were gathered together in his book of reminiscences, 'Mainly About Other People,' which appeared last year.

The piece was revived at the Savoy in 1923, and has been a consistent success on tour. Miss Mary O'Farrell. who is playing the title role to-night, is well used to the part, which she has taken many times in the Provinces.

'Music and the Ordinary Listener'

: BACH

Interpreted by CLAUD BIGGS French Suite, No. 5, in G rpHIS is a delightfully nttractive -little piece of musical entertainment.
ALLEMANDE (Moderately quick). The opening bar propounds a rhythmically interesting subject for discussion in the following bars.
COURANTE (Quick). In the free-running.
Italian style (not thr.t of the more rhythmically and contrapuntally complex French Courcnte). Mostly in merely two lines of notes.
SARABANDE (Moderately Slow and in Singing
Manner). A very melodious and expressive Movement.
GAVOTTE (Pretty Lively). Another happy little piece known to every schoolgirl, and (as the notes are easy to play) perhaps by this time to every schoolboy.
BOURRÉE. A tuneful right-hand melody is simply accompanied by left - hand arpeggio figures.
LOURE (At a Medium Speed). Rhythmically extremely interesting, from the happy way in which it proceeds by the happy little jerking figure given out in tho first two notes. ' The Louro was an ancient dance, the meaning of the name of which seems to be uncertain.
GIGUE (Rapid and Lively). One of Bach's most vivacious movements in this form and style. It is, in effect, a free fugue upon a subject which stands on its feet in the first half of the piece and on its head in the second.

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.
