: A Religious Service

From St. Mary's Abbey, Buckfast
S.B. from Plymouth
8.0 THE SERVICE Address by the Rt. Rev. Dom. ANSCAR VONIER,
Abbot of Buckfast
Directed by the Rev. RAPHAEL STONES, O.S.B. Choirmaster, Mr H.WARDALE , Mus.Bad. (Organist)
DOWN in the little village of Buckfast, in Devonshire, a Benedictine monastery has arisen, whose strange history recalls some of the stories of religious communities in the early Middle Ages. Buckfast Abbey has been built entirely by the monks themselves ; slowly, for at times, during the war years, the work was carried on by not more than two monks ; but continuously, until now it is an imposing stone building, whose bells have achieved a reputation that listeners will probably not consider exaggerated when they have heard them broadcast tonight. The Abbot, who gives the address, is a noted preacher and one of the finest theologians in the Benedictine order.
8.45 THE WEEK'S GOOD Cause :
Appeal on behalf of the British Sailors' Society by Admiral Sir WILLIAM GOODENOUGH , K.C.B.
FOUNDED a hundred and ten years ago, the British Sailors' Society maintains Sailors'
Hostels in over a hundred ports throughout the world, 'in addition to a Sea Training Hostel, where British boys are trained for British ships. It also helps sailors in distress, and the widows and orphans of sailors' supplies floating libraries, and maintains port missionaries and an international Brotherhood. A special appeal is now being made for a new Sailors' Rest at Southampton and for extensions to the hostels at Cardiff and Swansea.
Contributions should be sent to Admiral Sir
William Goodenough , at [address removed].

: The Evening Concert

VIVALDI'S fame rested, in his day (the early eighteenth century), chiefly on his virtuosity. Besides being a notable performer on the Violin, he conducted an Orchestra of girls at a foundling hospital in his native Venice, and also held office as a Priest of St. Mark's—' The Red Priest,' he was nicknamed, because of the colour of his hair.
Later generations esteemed
Vivaldi more as a composer who developed the Concerto form. He wrote about eighty Concertos in all of which the Violin plays a leading part.
VAUGHAN WILLIAMS ' fond' ness for the countryside and its songs is well known. Besides collecting many folk tunes, he has written some of his own, some in the folk-idiom and the others, like the Songs of Travel, expressing in his own personal style his love of the open road. He has set R. L. Stevenson 's robust verses with fine understanding and sympathy, and has given us something typically English in its healthy virility and underlying delicacy.
A SGER HAMERIK, a long-lived Danish com. poser(1843-1923), was a pianoforte pupil of von Biilow, who found him more apt for composition. He had previously studied under his countryman Gade, and later worked for a good many years with Berlioz. He spent over twenty-five years as head of an American Conservatoire of Music, and then retired to his native country, and was knighted by the King of Denmark.
He wrote half a dozen Symphonies, to each of which he gave a descriptive title—' Poetique,' ' Lyrique,' ' Majesteuse,' ' Serieuse,' and ' Spirituelle,' which we may take to mean ' witty' or ' ingenious,' rather than ' spiritual in the English sense. This last is for Strings only. He composed also several Operas, two Choral Trilogues, a Requiem, and five ' Northern Suites' for Orchestra, besides chamber music and smaller pieces.

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.
