Part I. ELIZABETHAN MUSIC HERE are three examples of the delicately-woven choralism of three hundred years ago. The first is a setting of words that have become very familiar, their warning burden being ' Men were deceivers ever.'
One of the most popular of all Madrigals is Festa 's Down in a Flou-'ry Vale. It is also one of the oldest that most people are likely, nowadays, to hear. Its Composer belonged to the Papal Choir, and was one of the leading men who gave the real start to the great unaccompanied choral music of the sixteenth century.
Thomas Morley was a contemporary and possibly n friend of Shakespeare, who set to music-some of the Poet's songs. The piece now sung is called a Ballet. This was a lighter kind of Madrigal, with a care-free 'Fa-la-la' refrain. ' Now is the month of Maying,' it runs, 'When merry lads are playing, each with his bonny lass-'

: 'A Day in the Life of a Police Constable

IT is many years now since Gilbert wrote that
' The. policeman's lot is not a happy one.' and. although the tender-hearted constable may feel as much reluctance now as he did then to arresting the burglar who, when he isn't burgling, 'loves to sit a-basking in the sun.' there can be no doubt that the modern policeman has a very different set of problems to face.

: BACH

Interpreted by CLAUD BIGGS
Toccata and Fugue in C Minor ; Prelude and Fugue in A Minor
THE Toccata and Fugue fall into sections. as follows: (a) A short, quick, rushing Movement of the brilliant toccata style, but with bits of imitation-one part starting a motif and another catching up the idea.
(b) A four-voice ' woven ' slow section, a sermon on a text given out in the treble of the-first two bars, and afterwards taken up by the other voices.
(c) A pretty three-voice Fugue upon a rhythmic, dancing subject. After a time, « few bars reminiscent of the style of the opening Movement .intervene, and then the Fugue begin-again, now, however, become a double Fugue, for t he old subject is given out with a new one as companion, and the two run in double harness henceforth (a good long ' henceforth ' it is, too). closed finally by a few effective bars in the character of the opening Movement.
THE Fugue of the second piece is a capital
J- example of Bach's art in keeping a piece going without a pause and without allowing the impulse or the interest to flag for an instant. There is here a rapid stream of continuously running short notes, flowing unchecked from beginning to end of the piece, and carrying us buoyantly along in the pleasantest fashion possible.

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.
