From Birmingham
THE BIRMINNGHAM MILITARY BAND, conducted by W. A. CLARKE rpHE Welsh Rhapsody (written for the Cardiff
Musical Festival of 1004) is woven without seam, but has four pretty definite sections, a little like those of a Symphony, and each of them grows out of some famous old Welsh melody or melodies. '
The FIRST (a stately one) is based on 'Loudly Proclaim.'
The SECOND (a skittish one) is made out of ' Hunting the Hare ' and The Bells of Aberdovey.'
The THIRD (a tender one) brings in ' David of the White Rock.'
The FouRTH (a march-like Finale) uses the famous ' Men of Harlech.'

: A Military Band Concert

The Wireless Military Band, conducted by B. Walton O'Donnell

Dukas' piece is a humorous musical illustration of a ballad by Goethe about a magician's 'prentice-boy, who, while his master is away, copies his signs and spells, and raises spooks, but can't lay them. He makes them work for him - fetch buckets of water, and swish them around, and sweep away vigorously.
Then he forgets the spell; the spirits can't be stopped, and the house is getting flooded. In the nick of time the sorcerer himself returns and removes the spell with a solemn incantation.
10.28 David Brynley
In the Sea Symphony Vaughan Williams took parts of poems by Walt Whitman and wrought them into a work for Chorus and Orchestra.
The Second Movement is entitled On the Beach at Night Alone. The words are from one of the Sea Drift poems, the title of which the composer adopted for the Movement. It is a meditative Nocturne having in its first bars a motif associated at the beginning of the work with the words 'Behold the sea itself' - a motif that, in one shape or another, often recurs in the work.


Musicians: The Wireless Military Band
Conducted by: B. Walton O'Donnell
Tenor: David Brynley


' DIVERTIMENTO' (Diversion) well describes many of Mozart's sociable, easy-going works, that are lighter in mood and build than most of his symphonic works. The Eleventh Divertimento (K. 251) belongs to his Salzburg days, when he was about twenty. The complete work contains five Movements - a brilliant opening one, a Minuet, a slow Movement, a second Minuet with three Variations, and a happy-go-lucky Rondo.

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.
