: MILITARY BAND PROGRAMME

THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND. conducted by Lieut. B. WALTON O'DONNELL , M.V.O.. F.R.A.M., R.M. HILDA BLAKE (Soprano). FRANK
TITTERTON (Tenor)
THR hero. Hercules. as a penance for a crime, had to hire himself out for three years. He took service with Omphule, Queen of Lydia. and worked at her side amongst the women-in so uncouth a manner as to win him many a blow. In this Symphonic Poem you may hear the whirl of the wheels. the derision of the Queen, and the sorrow of the enslaved hero.
Saint-Sams meant the work as a suggestion of the web-spinning of a woman, and of the weakness of the strong man when love ensnares him.
SIR GERALD DU MAURIER is one of those celebrities who really do need no introduction to any audience. He is at present appearing in Interference at the St. James's
Theatre.
IN spite of the immense popularity of the Military Band, it has practically never unti I quite lately been taken seriously by the great Composers, and Military Band music has suffered accordingly.
But at last. in our own days, some of the leading living Composers havo given it their attention.
Here is the First of two
Suites for Military Band which Hoist has written. It is made up of three separate pieces—(1) a vigorous Chaconne (a piece in which one bit of tune is repeated over and over again in the bass. occasion ally in other parts): (2) an expressive Intermezzo ; and (3) a lively March.
TCHAIKOVSKY. during a stay in Italy, gathered together some native folk-songs that he found in collections or heard in the streets, and made this piece out of them. It is full of the spirit of peasants, in rude health.
The opening Trumpet call is a reminiscence of the military music the Composer heard when he stayed near a barracks in Rome. Then various folk-songs are brought in. The last section of the work consists of a lively
Tarantella. One of the folk-tunes looks in for a moment on the Full Orchestra, and then the Tarantella is resumed, and the piece sweeps on to its riotous conclusion.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE : Appeal by Mr. HOWSON F. DEVITT (Chairman of the Arethusa Training Ship Committee) on behalf of the Shaftesbury Homes and Arethusa Training Ship.

STARTED in 1843 as a Ragged School in the slums of St. Giles's, the Shaftesbury Homes now run seven different homes, where 1,200 fatherless children are always being kept and trained to enable them to get established in life. In addition, there is the Arethusa, the famous ship which, starting as the last British frigate to go into action solely under sail, became tho Society's in 1874, and is now an up-to-date training-ship from which 3,500 boys have passed into the Navy and 6,500 into the Merchant Service. It is for extensive and urgently-needed repairs to the Arethusa that an additional sum of £1,000 is necessary this year.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
