: Mr. F. L. LUCAS, The Poetry of Clough'

ON November 13, 1862, Arthur Hugh Clough died at Florence. Matthew Arnold dedicated to him his beautiful elegy, ' Thyrsis, ' and probably Clough is by now as well known by this as by any of his own poetry. But in his own day he was a notable figure, and he is worth recalling not only as a poet, but as a pupil of Dr. Arnold at Rugby, a temporary follower of Newman at Oxford, and a Victorian ' character ' who knew almost all the great men of Victorian society and took part in most of its ' movements.' Mr. F. L. Lucas, who will talk about Clough this evening, is a well-known man of letters and a Fellow of King's College, Cambridge.

: A Military Band Concert

MAURICE COLE (Pianoforte)
THE WIRELESS MILITARY Band
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
ALTHOUGH all the music which the band is to play in this programme was written originally for concert orchestra, it all lends itself well to performance by a Military Band.
The Mozart Overture, bubbling over with his inimitable gaiety and good spirits, is already familiar in that form, but the accompaniment of a pianoforte concerto by Military Band is still something of a novelty, although this one has already been played.
The beginning of Stanford's First Irish Rhapsody has a really martial flavour even when played on the orchestra. The first of its tunes is taken from an old Irish war song. The other tune, as listeners know, is that beautiful air which has so many names, but which is probably best known as ' The Londonderry Air.'
The chief interest for the ordinary listener in the two extracts from the ' Rose Cavalier,' is in discovering how well Richard Strauss can write thoroughly popular, good-going waltz and other tunes.

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.
