: ENGLAND v. THE REST

A Running Commentary by Mr. P. F. WARNER
Relayed from Bristol
Musical Interludes from the Studio by THE ANDREW BROWN QUINTET
REPRESENTATIVE matches have always a particular appeal, for in first-class cricket they are few and far between. This season there is a particular interest in seeing how far the younger cricketers—men like Hammond of Gloucestershire and Shepherd of Surrey —will succeed in displacing the veterans who, despite all the criticisms of their age, have up to now remained the backbone of England's side.

: A POPULAR OPERATIC PROGRAMME

ALICE MOXON (Soprano) ; HEDDLE NASH (Tenor); THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA (Leader, S. KNEALE KELLEY ). Conducted by JOHN BARBIROLLI
THE children's Opera, Hansel and Gretel, is
A Humperdinck's most typical and charming work. Its plot, from Grimm's fairy tales, tells of the witch who enticed boys and girls to her gingerbread house, and then cooked and ate them.
The Dream Music (also called Dream Pantomime) comes in the Second Act. Two children have lost their way in the forest. They fall asleep and dream that angels descend a golden staircase and move in procession around them.
In Humperdinck's music to this scene we hear two leading themes, one a cradle-song and the other a hymn-like tune—a prayer.
THE hero of Aida is Radames, an Egyptian
Captain, who is made leader of the Egyptian Army, and, when he returns victorious, is offered the hand of the King's Daughter, who loves him. The tragedy which
' follows is due to the love which Radames and Aida, daughter of the captive Ethiopian King, bear for one another.
Radames sings Heavenly Aida near the beginning of the Opera. He dreams of his return, as victorious .leader, to his beloved Aida.
THE Countess Almaviva has found her husband fickle, and in this rather pathetic air she expresses her longing for the restoration of the love she once knew; if that cannot be, she does not wish to live.

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.
