The STATION AUGMENTED ORCHESTRA, conducted by T. H. MORRISON
THE Prelude to J. M. Barrie's play, first heard n?arly thirty years ago, sets the Scottish scene by opening with a passage reminiscent of bagpipes. The excited music that follows is heard, in the play, when the working folk and the soldiers are in collision.
After this the First Main Tune proper enters-a march theme of the soldiers. This tune is one very familiar to everyone, though it is not a native Scots air.
The Second Main Tune. a long, sober melody, is that which accompanies the ' Little Minister ' in the play.
After this the only old tune used in the Overture is heard-that of the song Duncan Gray.
Thus the Overture is built up, ending with a brilliant Reel. 'CAMPBELL OF KILMHOR'
A Play in One Act by J. A. FERGUSON
Performed by the STATION REPERTORY PLAYERS Presented by VICTOR SMYTHE
Cast :
Time: After the rising of '45 THE scene is laid in the room of a lonely cottage on the road from Straun to Rannock, in North Perthshire.
It is a wild night, the wind howling fitfully across the moorland. As the play opens, the old woman, Mary Stewart , is seated before the peat fire, wanning her hands.
HERE Mr. Moonie (a well-known Edinburgh musician whose compositions are largely concerned with Scottish life and scenes) has cast into the form of an Overture his impressions of the burning patriotism and heroic deeds in the stirring days of the '45, when Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his father's standard in Glenfinnan, held court at Holyrood, and finally was defeated at Culloden. OUR Royal Academy Principal is a Scot. (This seems to be an R.A.M. tradition; its principals are always ' Macs'-Macfarren Mackenzie, McEwen !) It is from the Border country that Dr. McEwen comes, and the piece now to be heard is one of three ' Orchestral Ballads ' (as he calls them) prompted by local sympathies. We may find in the music suggestions of the varied scenery of Galloway and its historical and legendary associations.

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.
