: PLAY TO SCIIOOLS 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'

By William Shakespeare
THIS afternoon's play is too generally well known to require anything in the nature of elaborate explanation.

Sliakespeare never wrote anything more full of the atmosphere of high summer and of the English country of his day than this delightful mingling of comedy and fairy-tale.

MODERN ENGLISH SONGS
Sung by JOHN THORNE (Baritone)
Miscellaneous Songs :
DR. SOMERVELL'S cycle of songs from Tennyson's Maud has more than once been broadcast in full. The first song this evening is that of the lover who hears Maud singing ' a passionate ballad, gallant and gay, a martial song like a trumpet's call.
The Oak Tree Bough (poem by Edward Thomas) tells of the beasts and birds that, trapped by the keeper, hang on the dead bough.
Cyril Scott 's song is an adaptation of an old French melody and of the verses 'Au clair de la lune.'
The Sergeant's Song (poem by Hardy) is a satirical ditty of the time of ' Boney,' postulating various unlikely events, such as 'When lawyers strive to heal a breach,' 'When ... rogues are only found in jail,' and so on and stoutly declaring that only then will Boney 'pounce down, And march his men on London Town.'

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.
