: (London only) The Week's Good Cause

Appeal on behalf of the Invalid Kitchens of London by Lady MURIEL PAGET
THE Invalid Kitchens of London were founded in 1905 for the assistance of women recovering from child-birth, convalescents from hospitals and dispensaries, phthisical cases pending admission to sanatoria, and other cases of illness. Each case is investigated by a competent secretary, who is a trained Welfare worker, and is considered by a local Committee, which is representative of the Health and Welfare Organizations working in the district. The work during the last 21 months has been heavy and constant, 114,938 dinners having been served to nearly four thousand invalids. Recipients contribute to the cost of the dinners, according to their ability to pay ; thus the system is based on self-respect and self-help. The cost of administration, however, necessarily remains considerable ; but if this good work is not only to be continued but increased, the income must be improved. To lose the full benefit of the success achieved by reaching those who truly deserve the help civen would be a tragedy.

: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

HARDY WILLIAMSON (Tenor)
ARNOLD TROWELL (Violoncello) THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
MANCINELLI had the unexpected good fortune to be promoted from the ranks of music to take a position of command, and the ability to profit by his good fortune. He was principal violoncellist in one of the Rome theatres when, in 1874, it was suddenly left without a conductor. He was asked to fill the vacant place, and conducted Verdi's Aida with such success that his position was immediately assured. For the rest of his busy life-he died in 1921-he was occupied as conductor and composer, and for a time the London musical world knew him well. He came here in 1886 and conducted performances of the classics and of some of his own music. In the following years he appeared frequently at Covent Garden as conductor, and more than once had music of his own performed at the Norwich Festival. Madrid and New York also welcomed him as operatic conductor, and his own music has been given in most of the principal centres in Europe.
The Overture to Cleopatra was written for a production of a play of that name by Cossa, Mancinelli providing also incidental music. The Overture opens with a solemn and very simple chant, beginning in two parts on the strings, and gathering strength and volume with more elaborate accompaniment gradually added. There is another melody, a little later, in which woodwinds and strings both share, and then the simplicity of the opening chant is heard again, but now with full accompaniment, and the Overture closes with hurrying speed and big emphasis.

: ARNOLD TROWELL

ARNOLD TROWELL is known as one of the most brilliant of living violoncellists, and as a singularly successful teacher of his instrument, of which he is professor at the Guildhall School of Music. He has, however, composed much interesting music of his own, chiefly orchestral, and for his own instrument. He has done notable work, too, in editing older violoncello music.
Born in New Zealand, he studied in Germany and at Brussels, where he won a prize for violoncello and where he made his first appearance as a soloist. He has toured extensively, but since 1907 his home has been in this country.

The leading composers have for the most part neglected the Military Band, as though so popular a medium wore unworthy of their best ideas. Times are changing, and more and more the great composers are realizing that the band is in every way as well adapted for presenting their music as the concert orchestra may do.
Gustav Hoist is among the few modern British musicians who have given the Military Band a fair share of their best work, composing, among other music, two vigorous and thoroughly popular Suites for it. The second one is largely based on folk tunes, as the names of the movements set forth, and the only further point of interest for listeners is that the two tunes which are so cunningly welded together in the last movement are the ones which Hoist uses so happily in his St. Paul's Suite for strings also.

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.
