: TOWN AND COUNTRY

A PROGRAMME OF MOODS interpreted by Mr. PERCY SCHOLES Relayed to London and Daventry
TOWN
A Reading from ' The Londoner ' (Charles Lamb)
THE AUGMENTED STATION ORCHESTRA
Conducted by T. H. MORRISON
A GREAT favourite is Cockaigne, that picture of London, the town of the Cockneys : a picture of bustling, cheery, noisy existence, with Romance threading its way bravely through the clatter.
The meaning of Elgar's tunes will be apparent to all who hear them. As the pageant passes, we see a number of people in a hurry, a sober citizen or two, a pair of lovers, a cheeky miniature version of the sober citizen, a military band, first in the distance and then close by, the lovers seeking seclusion in a church, the street again with its familiar associations. PARIS, the gay city, could hardly have gayer music than this favourite piece of carnival timo, by the Norwegian composer, Svendscn. We imagine some such jollification as the Shrove Tuesday procession, with its decorated cars, grotesque figures, masquers, and happy crowds of holiday-making spectators. COUNTRY A Reading of ' The Vagabond ' (Robert Louis Stevenson)
WHEN Beethoven wrote his Pastoral Symphony he was at great pains to have it understood as (to use his own words) ' more expression of feeling than painting.' Listeners may find interest in deciding for themselves how far this is true.
This evening we are to hear the Second
Movement, entitled By the Brooklet. The impression is that of rippling along dreamily, without a pause.
One notices chiefly two Solo 'Cellos, muted, whose lines of melody are generally doubled, an octave above, by other Strings.
At the end, birds begin to sing. The trilling of the Nightingale is represented by a Flute, the high repeated notes of the Quail by an Oboe. and the lower call of the Cuckoo by the two Clarinets.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
