: A Symphony Concert

Relayed from the New Pavilion, Bournemouth
No. 24of the 34Winter Series
Conductors: Mr. JOHN Gough and Sir DAN GODFREY
Mannucci (Violoncello) (First Performance)
JOHN GOUGH was bom in Tasmania in 1903 (an Australian of the third generation, educated at Launceston
State High School and later, by scholarship, at the Melbourne University Conservatorium. He is a composition Scholar of the Royal College of Music and a pupil of Dr. Vaughan Williams.
He has furnished the following description of his work: 'First Wallaby Track is an attempt to find a pastoral expression that will be at one with the soil of Australia. (The term Wallaby Track is equivalent to the English " Open Road ").'
The Composer believes that the aesthetic of this quest concerns itself, not with Sydney harbour, nor with the great wool exchanges, but rather with the hearts of those simple outback people who, having no veneer of civilization, understanding but crudely the values applicable to human lives, are eligible to feel (as part of their natural selves) the emotions that come with the sight of a crystal dawn and trees splitting with light; the acrid smell of the forest fire, presently bursting redly voracious into the young crops; men gaily believing, believing in yellow metal, and digging, digging up tin, the long unbreaking drought, a sky stained infinite blue and ten thousand head of cattle with their bellies to the sun; tunes lisped by mountain trees to glittering voiceless birds, the elation of spring and the pores of the earth all bleeding; the moon sifting through giant gums, down into the brooding silence of the night-bush ; the last bale's stamped departure and the spirit of the dance unleashed.

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.
