: A MILITARY BAND PROGRAMME

5. SQUIRE (Violoncello); THE ENGLISH RANGERS; THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND, conducted by Lieut. B. WALTON O'DONNELL, R.M.
THE first of the above works is also known as Fingal's Cave.
One of the most beautiful and haunting works ever written by Mendelssohn, it was inspired by his visit to the wild, rocky isles of Scotland.
The opening phrase (a short figure at first heard in the Bass) dominates the whole work. It was a direct inspiration, for Mendeksohn said that it occurred to him as he entered Fingal's Cave.
THE BAMBOULA is a West Indian Negro Dance worked up into an orchestral piece by insistent repetition and development.
SCHUMANN'S Romance, the Second Movement of the Symphony, is an engaging little piece. The character of the melody makes it easy to believe (as we are told) that Schumann at first intended to bring in a guitar for the accompaniment.
The Finale is the Fourth Movement of the Symphony. It works up to a brilliant and exhilarating finish.
'MADRIGAL' is a general term applied to the typical part-song of the Elizabethan age, a 'Ballet' being, as a rule, a particularly light-hearted Madrigal. Very simple harmonies, great freedom of movement in the voice parts, no accompaniment, and a peculiar fascination about it all-these are some of the chief elements of the old Madrigal style.
The 'English Singers' are a Sextet of artists who are drawn into partnership by their love of this tvpe of vocal music. Several of them are prominent as concert soloists.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE: St. Martin-in- the-Fields Holiday Fund

THIS Fund, which is raised each year by the Vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, is administered by him privately for sending away those who cannot afford, or can ill afford, a summer holiday. St. Martin's is placed at the heart of things, and those who work there are brought in touch with an almost incredible number of people in every walk of life up and down the country. This Fund is used to help those who would be the last to ask for help, and who least look for it. There are no administrative expenses whatsoever. Contributions should be sent to [address removed].

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.
