: MARJORIE and C. H. B. QUENNELL, ' Everyday Things of the Past-The XIIIth Century '

THE thirteenth century was almost the first settled period in English history, when no conquests or invasions occurred to interfere. with the ordinary course of evolution. Except for the Crusades, which left a few traces of Eastern influence in the most unlikely places, no outside force intervened in the thirteenth century, and the further development of Gothic architecture seems, in retrospect, perhaps the most important feature of the age.

: A Concert of New Compositions

The Wireless Orchestra, conducted by John Ansell
John Thorne (Baritone)
(Conducted by the Composer)
The work is founded on old Cornish folk-tunes (several of which were used, in a modified form, in the work On the Cornish Coast which the Composer wrote for the Crystal Palace Brass Band competition in 1924). It opens with the sea shanty Lowlands Low, which is given out by the brass and developed at some length.
The opening fragment of the tune plays an important part throughout the work, serving, in various, guises, to bind the different sections together.
A second theme (Woolycombe) now becomes more prominent an-I is shortly followed by a quieter section in which the tune, A maiden sat weeping, announced by the Oboe, plays the most important part.
The vigorous development of these themes suggests the rugged storm-bound Cornish coast.
The next tune to appear is that of the Helston Furry Dance. This is introduced, apparently, by the oldest inhabitant of the place - somewhat unsteady on his feet. Others take up the Dance, and when it is in full swing, yet another tune, the Song of the Western Men, steals in, and the two themes are heard together in the Coda.

On Wednesday next week we shall experience an unwonted period of darkness during the day. How will this affect broadcasting ? Mr. Donis. thorpe, who was in New York during the total eclipse visible there in 1924, will explain the position in his talk tonight.

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.
