' A ND the name of that town is Vanity ;
A- and at the Town there is a Fair kept, called Vanity Fair it is kept all the year long ; it beareth the name of Vanity. Fair because the Town wKero 'tis kept is lighter than Vanity; and also because all that is there sold, or that comoth thither, is Vanity....."

Appeal on behalf of the Central Council for the Social Welfare of Girls and Women in London by Dame Madge KENDAL
MANY different societies are working for the welfare of girls in London. It is the function of the Central Council to provide common ground where workers of all creeds can meet and consult with each other, with the L.C.C., and with the Government Departments on matters which concern their work. The Council collects and distributes information, organizes special inquiries, and acts as a general staff for those who take part in this great work.
Contributions, which may be earmarked for particular societies or forms of work, should be sent to [address removed]

: An Orchestral Concert

Claire Croiza (Soprano)
THE London Chamber Orchestra
Conducted by Anthony BERNARD
IN the days when Handel's influence was great in this country, William Boyce (1710-1779) had an honoured name as a British composer of force and individuality. This composer and organist to the Chapel Royal, and Master of the King's Music, is best known by his edition of a great collection of Cathedral music. His own compositions included anthems and services, besides masque music, songs for the theatre, and some chamber music.
DELIUS' lovely little impression for small orchestra is one of his fairly recent works.
In it he evokes yet another of those moods in which we delight — moods that have at once something comprehensive and universal, that can be enjoyed by a sensitive hearer of any nationality, and also, we like to think, something that reflects the peculiar beauty of our native countryside.
A T the beginning of last century there wore Pleasure Gardens at Ranelagh which were among London's most popular resorts.
Charles Dibdin , whom nowadays we hardly remember except by a few such songs as Tom Bowling and The Jolly Waterman, wrote several light Operas for Ranelagh. One of the greatest favourites was The Ephesian Matron, which has a splendid Sinfonia, or Overture, full of gay, lilting melody.
PULENC (born 1899) is one of the youngest of the French group of young composers formerly known as ' The Six,' who in methods differed a good deal from each other, but who were at one in their iconoclasm. They aim particularly at clarity and concision — so say their supporters. His work Mouvements Perpetuels was originally written for Pianoforte, and has been arranged by the composer for a chamber orchestra consisting of a small body of Strings, iwith one each of Flute, Oboe, Cor Anglais , Clarinet, Bassoon, and Horn.

Tlf-AURICE BESLY is a young Yorkshireman JU- who, since the war, has become well known, first in Oxford, as organist of Queen's College, and conductor of the Oxford Orchestra, and then in the wider world of music, as conductor and composer. '." ' : * ?"'?' ••???? We hear a great deal about the ' forward' children of today. Mr. Besly playfully assumes that the modern babe demands, even in his cradle, something a little different from the old-fashioned Lullaby. It will be found, how
; ever, that this piece is not, after all, excessively ' ' modern,' at any rate in the sense of being cacophonous.
QtCHUBERT wrote three Overtures in the key
- O of D, one when he was fifteen and the other
' two about five years later. One of the later ones is in two Movements, respectively slow and quick, the first being similar to ~a section of _ the. Overture, we know by the name, of the play if osamunde.

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.
