: Mr. E. L. WOODWARD: How to Approach Modern European History-VI, How the Historian Tests his Material'

SO far, these talks have analyzed the material at our disposal for the compilation and writing of the history of international relations. The present talk, being the conclusion and summary of the series, takes a special instance in the European history of the nineteenth century with a view to studying how we should set to work' to put together such an historical account. The instance taken, as a critical point in nineteenth century history, is the Congress of Berlin in 1878, and the test to be applied is Disrae!i's claim that ho came back from Berlin bringing ' peace with honour.'

THE WIRELESS CHORUS (Chorus Master, Stanford

Produced by HOWARD ROSE The Music under the Direction of JULIAN HERBAGE
LOVE IN A VILLAGE originally appeared as a Comic Opera in three Acts, at Covent Garden Theatre in 1762. The music was partly composed by the great Dr. Ame and partly compiled by him from music which was then in vogue, and the piece enjoyed a real success.
At that time rivalry between Covent Garden and Drury Lane was very keen ; contemporary records show that Arne's Opera was so popular that only on the nights when Garrick himself
. appeared at Drury Lane, was there anv audience there. No other attraction could prevail against the charm and humour of this light-hearted work.
When Sir Nigel Playfair revived the Opera and produced it at the Lyric, Hammersmith, in 1928, the munie was recast, and additional numbers composed, by Mr. Alfred Reynolds, the Musical Director there, a musician to whom many of the Lyric's productions owed a good deal of their popularity. To a thorough knowledge of the theatre and stage-craft, Mr. Reynolds unites a happy knack of genuine, natural, melody and a thorough craftsmanship in music. A good deal of his work is already familiar to listeners, and he has an assured place of his own among composers of the present day, as well as a strong hold on the affections of all who appreciate fresh and wholesome art with nothing sombre nor troublesome in its make-up.








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.
