: For Younger Listeners: 'How to get the Best out of Books,' by R. N. CAREW HuNr

THE joy of books is open to everyone ; but it is a joy that needs a key to open it, and that key is best supplied in youth. Many young people complain of the boredom of idle hours simply because books are a sealed pleasure to them. Mr. Carew Hunt has had long experience in running libraries and in helping boys to the amusement and education and enrichment of books.

: A Light Orchestral Concert

GWEN LEWIS (Soprano) GLYN EASTMAN (Bass)
THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOHN ANSELL
SAINT-SAENS, who, throughout a great part of his long and busy life, was the acknowledged master musician of France, was a great traveller. As pianist, organist, and composer, he visited most of the countries of the world; he travelled much besides for his own pleasure, and was more than once in Algiers. Listeners will remember that it was there that he died at the end of 1921, at the ripe old age of eighty-six.
This march is the fourth movement of a Suite in which he records his impressions of an earlier visit to the North of Africa, and is worked out with all his skill in the use of the orchestral instruments, to give a very vivid and picturesque impression of that sunny part of the world. It is a French Military March, a really rousing march in brisk time. On the traveller's return to Algiers, amidst the picturesque bazaars and Moorish cafes, a French Regiment passes, the soldierly steps contrasting strongly with the bizarre rhythms and languorous melodies of the Orient.

IN the rather exaggerated respect which we are wont to pay to serious music, thinking of tragedy as necessarily on a higher plane than comedy, we are apt to do scant justice to the purveyors of light-hearted music whose whole aim is to add to the brightness of every day. It is a direction in which British music has long been to the fore, even from the days when the making of music was regarded as a recreation rather than an accomplishment. The whole world recognises, for instance, that in the domain of whimsical Camic Opera, there is nothing like the long line of Savoy favourites. And, though our Musical Comedies have often been imported from abroad, many English composers have shown that they can successfully compete with the foreigner in that bright and cheerful way.
Hermann Finck , by no means the first bearer of the name to achieve distinction in music, has long been held in warm affection as purveyor of bright and tuneful pieces, which have no other object than to entertain us. And that he has at command a real gift of fresh and natural melody, which he knows, moreover, very well how to set before us, has long been known to the whole country.

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.
