The Garden of the Town '
London murk, grime and fog have driven many a country-lover to despair, but there is no reason why, with a little patience and skill, the Londoner should not relieve the monotony of dirty bricks and mortar with flowers. Gardens have been formed in the most unlikely places in the heart of the City itself, and, naturally, the more unlikely the place, the more welcome the garden will be. The London Gardens Guild exists to propagate gardens and encourage gardeners in London and its vicinity, and Mr. Sudell, who is its secretary, will carry on the good work in this evening's talk.

'FROM the earliest days of my youth,' Sir Frederic Cowen has said, 'I was intended for music. Even if I rack my memory I cannot discover that I ever had the opportunity of thinking of or choosing anything else.' Even so, not many musical youngsters achieve an Operetta at eight-Sir Frederic's feat. It was written to a libretto by a girl cousin, and its title was Garibaldi. 'It had a run of two consecutive nights in the Royal Opera House back parlour,' we hear-doubtless, to enormous applause from the entire family.
Sir Frederic, who came to England from Jamaica in 1856, four years before the important event described above, has been composing and conducting ever since.
His Overture, The Butterflies' Ball, is delicately and daintily orchestrated, with many trills and flutterings on Flutes, 'light converse of the Wood-wind and Strings, and so forth. There are suggestions, too, of the delicious languor of a summer's afternoon'.

played by HILDA DEDERICH
Tenth Sonata (K 330)
THE FIRST MOVEMENT is one of those trim, dapper productions that, if it does not say anything of great moment, utters its agreeable speeches in a style so rounded and polished that our attention is pleasantly, if not deeply, engaged.
The SECOND MOVEMENT would, one feels, make an admirable tiny Orchestral piece. In its straightforward, placid way, it forms just the right contrast to the jaunty First Movement, and the minor-key middle part comes as a still more cool and restful interlude.
With the LAST MOVEMENT we are back in the mood of the opening of the Sonata, where all is pellucid, good-humoured and contented.

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.
