Conducted by Flight-Lieut . J . AMERS
Roy HENDERSON (Baritone)
THE Russian Anton Rubinstein, one of the greatest Pianists of last century, achieved fame also (at any rate, in his own country), as Conductor and Composer. He became Master of Music at the Imperial Russian Court, and established the St. Petersburg Conservatoire of Music, of which he was Principal for several years. For these services lie received a title of nobility. Successful world tours followed: after one American tour it is said lie was offered £25,000 to come back and give another fifty concerts, but his dread of the voyage prevailed, and he refused. His Fancy Dress Ball, some numbers from which are now to be played, was originally a set of twenty Pianoforte Duets.

: Missionary Talk: Dr. Danson, Bishop of Labuan and Sarawak: The Land of the White Rajah

(Relayed from the Birmingham Studio)
For the last ten years Dr. Danson has been Bishop of the enormous diocese that includes Borneo, the third biggest island in the world, where his flock comprises not only the scattered British population, but the immigrant Chinese and the Dyaks, who were head-hunters a generation or two ago. It is about these last, in the domains of the white Rajahs - the famous Brookes of Sarawak - that he will talk tonight. Before he went to this diocese he worked for many years in Singapore, Java and the Malay States, and he is the only Bishop who has been shipwrecked twice.


Speaker: Dr. Danson

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.
