: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

KATHLYN HILLIARD (Soprano)
HARRY BRINDLE (Bass)
THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
MOZART'S air is sung by the page Cherubino, who, though he is in love with the Countess, is flirting with her maid. He steals from her a ribbon that belongs to the Countess, and placates the maid by giving her a song he has written about her mistress.
T ULLY (1633-1687) was a poor Italian youth who was taken to France when quite young. Ho began his working life as a kitchen scullion, and was lucky enough to gain the favour of the young King, Louis XIV , who made him leader of his band. Being as clever a courtier as he became a composer, he found out that the French liked Ballets and graceful Operas, and pleased them by writing plenty of these, himself acting and dancing in some of them.
Sombre woods (Bois Epais) comes from the tragedy Amadis, one of Lully's late works.
IN the last Act of Puccini's Opera, Mimi lies dying in the garret where live the Bohemians. She needs food and medicine, and Colline, one of the band, determines to sell his overcoat to get them. In this air he bids the old garment a sad farewell.
THE Song of Penitence is a heartfelt cry for pity upon the sinner who has offended against God's law. Then comes a mood of comfort, as the penitent, remembering God's promises of mercy, feels his heart lighten, and believes that he may yet redeem himself and win again God's favour.

: The Chief Rabbi, The Very Rev. Dr. J.H. Hertz: The Day of Atonement: Its Meaning and Message

The Day of Atonement, which falls tomorrow, is the most solemn day in the Jewish Calendar. On this day the Jew withdraws from the moil and toil of daily life and, freed from the stress of worldly cares, devotes himself to a retrospect of his life in the past year, to self-examination which leads him not only to an acknowledgment of his wrongdoing, but to repentance and to a desire to return to the path of righteousness. The Day is spent in fasting and prayer; fasting, which brings home to the Jews the weakness of the flesh, and with it a contrition of spirit and a realization of man's dependence on Divine help, and prayer, for forgiveness of past sins, and for the strength and Divine help to return to a nobler life, and to an 'at-one-ment' with God and with one's fellow-man.
Rabbi Hertz, who broadcasts on this occasion, is one of the best-known Jews in the whole of that cosmopolitan race. Born in Czecho-Slovakia, he went as a child to New York, worked in South Africa from 1898 to 1911, returned to New York in 1912, and succeeded Dr. Adler as Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the British Empire in 1913.

STANDING on the site of an old Saxon church, Bradford Cathedral is itself one of the most historical ecclesiastical buildings in the North. It dates from 1458 (although the tower was not added until half a century later), and, as the Parish Church, went through many vicissitudes, including a tem- . porary transition to a fortress during the Civil War. It became a Cathedral when the diocese of Bradford was formed in 1919. Canon Wilson will bo remembered by many listeners as the Vicar of Swansea, where ho arranged many broadcast services. He is now Archdeacon and Vicar of Bradford.

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.
