: (Daventry only) COMING FASHIONS Mrs. ALISON SETTLE : 'Who Makes, the Fashions ? '

FASHIONS come, as they go, mys.
F teriously. It is as easy to detect the first shadow of twilight in November as for the ordinary person to trace the new season's fashions to the.r source
Suddenly they appear in the papers, and a little later in the shops; one has to wear them ; that is all one knows.
Mrs. Alison Settle is, however, editor of Vogue, and so behind the scenes of the world in which fashions are made; and she will explain some of its workings in .two talks. the first of which. is being given today.

: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
Scipio was, in its day, one of the most popular of Handel's operas, and the great air ' Hear me, ye winds and waves,' exhibiting the old master in his most robust and characteristic vein, is one of its most famous numbers.
In recent years there has been a great reawakening of interest in Handel in Germany, more especially in his operas, many of which, after having been totally neglected for generations, have been revived with success. Whether or not Scipio has been among those which have renewed in this manner their glimpses of the foot-lights, we cannot say.
7.48 BAND (Soloist, CHARLES LEGGETT )
It is usual to think of Brahms as rather indifferent about the instruments which were to present his melodies, and he made arrangements of several of his own important works. Whether he would have approved of a Cornet playing one of his spng melodies may be doubted; the instrument is not a popular one in Germany. He once used this same song, however, in a novel way. As a present to one of his godchildren, the son of another distinguished musician, he had a clock specially made which chimed the lines of this song every quarter of an hour. Although the fortunate possessor of the clock is now himself the father of a family, it may well be that he still treasures so unique a gift.

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.
