The Walrus and the Carnenter
PEDRO DE ZULUETA, a programme of whose music is being given this evening, is introducing himself to the B.B.C. listeners as composer and as conductor, for the first time. The three orchestral pieces and the songs in the first part of the programme arc all of that light and melodious order which need no explanation nor guidance for their enjoyment, and little more need be said of the Cantata than this, that it sets forth the humour and charm of Lowis Carroll 's inimitable verses in a very happy way. Much of the effect is gained by setting the nonsense to music of mock solemnity, and the opening, in which the chorus announce that the sun was shining although it was the middle of the night, is effective in that very way.

: (Daventry only) Prof. W. G. DE BURGH: 'The Meaning of Ethics-I, What is Moral Philosophy ? '

'MUSIC AND THE ORDINARY LISTENER'
Series IX, ' Words and Music '
JUDGING by the many letters received complaining that singers fail to make their words clear and, more still, by the great difficulty both composers and singers find in making every syllable naturally. effective, there are few musical subjects more interesting and important to the general listener than the one Sir Walford Davies has chosen for his series this session. Briefly expressed, the subject is: How can the arts of poetry and music be -successfully and enjoyably run in double harness ? It is hoped, too, that the series will be of particular as well as general interest in that it may be of service to choirs and choir-masters who have not only the ideal unity of ' voice and verse ' to attain, but the substantial added problem of doing it in teams as one man.

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.
