Winter Distress League. Appeal by Mrs. E. M. WOOD, Chairman of the Executive Committee.

UNEMPLOYMENT is a grim tragedy at any time, but as the English winter draws on, its horrors are multiplied tenfold. The aim of the Winter Distress League is to mitigate the hardships of the unemployed-giving preference to ex-Service men and' their families-- by providing clothes for those who are so ragged that they cannot even present themselves to apply for jobs : by various
employment schemes, such as supply of labour, paid at Trade Union rates, to institutions needing repair; by boarding-out their children in the country, and by other means. Help is urgently needed.
WIRELESS FOR THE HOSPITALS.
The great cause of providing radio sets for the sufferers" : in our hospitals is again the object of the Good

: VESPER MUSIC

TUE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA, conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON

IIADOV'S piece also has the title
Valse Badinage. It was originally a little jest written for the Piano, and dedicated to the Composer's son. Then Liadov scored it for Piccolo, two Flutes, three Clarinets, Bells and Harp. The effect is very realistic.
A S most people know, the plot of Humperdinck's most typical and charming work,
Hansel and Gretel, is taken from Grimm's fairy tales. It tells of the witch who enticed boys and girls to her gingerbread house, and then cooked and ate them.
The Dream Music (also called Dream Pantomime) comes in the Second Act. Two children have lost their way in the forest. They fall asleep and dream that angels descend a golden staircase and move in procession around them. In Humperdinck's music to this scene we hear two leading themes, one a cradle-song and the other a hynin-like tune-a prayer.








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.
