Molto moderato; Allegretto
SOME of our older listeners can remember the storm of abuse with which Wagner's music was assailed when it was nrst played over here. To ears accustomed to the sweet and guileless melodies of Italian opera, to the simple grace of French ballets, to the noble serenity of Beethoven, this new music was an utter abomination.
Now, barely two generations later, Wagner'3 music is as surely a part of the common man's delight as anything which art can offer him.
But music cannot stand still, nothing can, without stagnating. Each succeeding age has its apostles of advance, its explorers of now paths—and the bolder they are, the further they strikeout along untrodden ways, the less can they expect us common folk to follow them, to understand the beauties they assure ua they have found. But it does behove us to be patient, and, moreover, to be humble. To our grandchildren, Bartok k and the other ' fiery particles' of today may well be the kindly and inspiring friends that Wagner is to us : in The Radio Times of 1990, some one may be quoting Bartok, as Wagner is cited here, by way of a sermon on the virtue of tolerance.
The creative artist is always, more or less, a law unto himself : nothing really new could ever be created otherwise. But Bartok is apparently bound by no laws at all, even of his own devising : if he is guided by any rules or formulae, he evolves new ones for every fresh work he gives us, with a rapidity which leaves even his own disciples panting far behind him, unable to keep pace with such a swift and tireless change of outlook,

: A DISCUSSION

Mr. JAMES AGATE and Mr. LEON M. Lion
A Theatrical Discussion
MR. AGATE's sprightly ability to maintain his points in a discussion is already well known to listeners. For a long time now he has been ' telling the world ' in a gay and critical manner the truth (as he sees it) about the latest plays. On this occasion he will join in a friendly fisticuffs with Mr. Leon M. Lion , the well-known London theatrical manager. During his career, Mr. Lion has put on most of Galsworthy's plays-in itself a. sufficient claim upon our gratitude. It will be particularly of interest, in this dscussion, to notice the different view-points, within the ' profession,' of the critic and the actor-manager.

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.
