: Mr. A. B. B. VALENTINE: ' Londoners' Country-IV, Undiscovered Essex '

PARTLY because the approach to Essex from
London lies not through the parks or garden suburbs of the North, West and South, but through the miles of brick and mortar of the East End, the Londoner in search of country has not yet really found it out. But, apart even from Epping rorest, Essex provides some ot the most completely country scenery that can be found within twenty miles of London, and Mr. Valentine will describe some of its delightful corners in the last of his series of talks.

(Baritone); ARNOLD TROWELL (Violoncello)
London heard Oberon under the Composer's direction a few weeks before his death at the age of thirty-nine. It is a fairy-story Opera in which Weber's gift for composing imaginative music, full of romantic and pictorial suggestion, rose to the heights of genius. In this fine Overture we hear all sorts of graphic ideas-the magic horn of Oberon, fairy music, and the more positive strains of human loves and triumphs.
THIS fifth Symphony of Tchaikovsky, and its younger and still more emotional brother, the ' Pathetic,' appear to be still without rivals in popularity among the Symphonies written since Beethoven. This one is too well known to need close description. Those to whom it is not yet familiar should first know that there is a 'Motto' theme that binds the four movements together. It is the chief subject of the sombre Introduction that leads to the swinging FIRST MOVEMENT; it is noisily declaimed and abruptly sounded at the climax of the romantic SECOND MOVEMENT ; near the end of the Waltz which forms the THIRD MOVEMENT it enters, low down, with a suggestion of mockery; and as the spirited FOURTH MOVEMENT works to a climax it is thundered out triumphantly in the Major key.

: PROMENADE CONCERT

(Continued) mHE First Dance Rhapsody was brought out at the Hereford Festival of 1909. It is written for a large Orchestra, including the rarely heard Heckelphone (an improved Bass Obce).
At the outset a short Introduction brings forth some of the tunes to be worked upon. Two of these nppeear successively on Oboe and Flute. Another motif of which use is made is the little dance played by the Horns.
In the next section the time quickens considerably, and a new tune is given out, low down. Violins, in octaves, have another. The treatment of these is free, and charmingly coloured.
After a climax, a slow section ensues, in which a Solo Violin has a beautiful version of the first
Tune, accompanied only by Strings.
The last clear division is that in which the very lively pace is resumed. The ending is loud and most energetic.

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.
