: A LIGHT ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRAconducted by JOHN ANSELL
ESTHER COLEMAN (Contralto) : DAN JONES (Tenor) ; MAURICE COLE
(Pianoforte)
OF all celebratory pieces, perhaps the best known is ' 1812.' It was written for the consecration of a church in Moscow which had been erected in thanksgiving for the saving of Russia from Napoleon's power.
The work was to have been performed in the open air by a huge military band. with cannon firing. That ceremonial performance never took place ; and cannon not being, even yet, among the orchestra's percussion instruments, the drummers have to do their best to make up for them.
THESE pieces are from
Sibelius' incidental music to Adolf Paul 's tragedy of King Christian II, the sixteenth-century ruler of Demark. Norway and Swoden, against whose treachery and tyranny GustavusVasa arose.
Christian was driven from his kingdom, and in spite of an attempt to regain his power, he ended his days in prison, dying in 1559.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Chelsea Hospital for
Women by The MARQUESS OF LONDONDERRY
THE Chelsea Hospital for Women has, in the last two years, nearly doubled its number of beds. and it is now the largest Hospital in the country devoting itself entirely to the treatment of diseases peculiar to women. Although these diseases include many of the worst forms of cancer, not more than two per cent. of its patients are lost-a remarkable witness to the skill of its medical and nursing staff. The Hospital also maintains a Convalescent Home at St.Leonards-on-Sea.

8.45 . Appeal on behalf of the Dockland Settlement and Malvern Club's Council by CONSTANCE, DUCHESS OF WESTMINSTER
THE Dockland Settlement started just over twenty-five years ago up a side street in Canning Town, and it has grown steadily until it now includes twenty-five different clubs.
These form a chain through which boys and girls pass as they grow up. and their premises are in use by different bodies from midday onwards. The Settlement does not merely supply a pleasant place of recreation (itself a very desirable object in a neighbourhood like that around the Albert Docks) ; it influences its members by physical training. games, instruction in trades and crafts, and so on. and it also runs a Labour Exchange and does much to help ex-Service men and sailors in their difficulties. The present appeal is for tho fund to provide new buildings instead of the old premises, which have been long outgrown.
Contributions should be marked ' Dockland,' and sent either to [address removed], or to [address removed]

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.
