: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

From Birmingham
THE CITY OF BIRMINGHAM POLICE BAND
Conducted by RICHARD WASSELL
To the sadness in certain parts of the Symphony may be added this note of pathos-that its composer did not live to know how extremely popular his work was to become ; for within three months of completing it, death came to him. In the last Movement (Slow and lamenting, then somewhat quicker), the moods pass through pathos and pity to final despair.

: 'MASTER WAYFARER'

From Birmingham
. A happening of long ago, by J. E. HAROLD TERRY
With songs by ARTHUR SCOTT CRAVEN , and music by HOWARD CARR
Presented by STUART VINDEN
The scene is the parlour of ' The Pigeon Pie ' over 150 years ago. A cosy room, oak panelled, with heavy beams running athwart the ceiling, it has a large, open fireplace and ingle-nook.
Upon a rack behind the bar are bottles, quaintly shaped, and shining pewter mugs. The room is in complete darkness save for the light cast by the fire, and for the moonbeams which come intermittently through the small latticed window.
The Maid enters, bearing a lighted taper and singing snatches of an old love song. Lighting the candles above the mantel, she busies herself with bottles and mugs. The latch of the door is lifted and with a glad cry she runs to meet the incomer.
Incidental Music played by the MIDLAND
SEXTET (Leader, FRANK CANTELL ), directed by YONOSUKE MUTSU

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.

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.
