: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

(From Birmingham)
The BAND OF H.M. 1ST BN. THE Royal
WARWICKSHIRE REGIMENT
(By kind permission of the Commanding and other Officers)
Conducted by C. A. HARTMANN
Relayed from the Jephson Gardens Pavilion,
Leamington Spa
ANDRE MESSAGER , known to us in this country as the composer of The Little Michus and of Veronique, is the last of the long line of French comic opera composers whose music really preserves qualities worthy to bo dignified by tho name ' Opera.' Ho was a pupil of Saint-Saens, and in every way a worthy pupil. All his music has not merely charm and sparkling grace, but a dignity and stylo which tempt one to call him the aristocrat of the comic opera stage.
The suite The Two
Pigeons is a ballet in six movements. Tho first is a march, energetic and with a hint of Hungarian rhythm; the second is tho dance of tho two pigeons (we should call them in English the two dear young things'), dignified and capricious by turns ; the third is a theme with three variations. Tho fourth is a sort of interlude, a divertissement, as the composer calls it, sprightly and full of interest ; the fifth is a Hungarian dance with the real energy for which wo look in such a piece, and the last, called simply Final, is again in a very quick march rhythm, finishing on a note of boisterous energy.

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.
