: THE CARLTON HOTEL OCTET

Directed by RENEE TAPPONIER , from the Carlton
Hotel .

: THE ERNEST LEGGETT LONDON OCTET

DOROTHY PHILLIPS (Soprano)
THE Prelude of Jarnefelt is a very unassuming and free-and-easy piece. Over a tripping quick-march accompaniment a gay tune is given out by one instrument after another, usually overlapping itself in orderly confusion. Then comes n little touch of sentiment in another key, find the first part returns. Jarnefelt (one of the few prominent Finnish Composers besides Sibelius) happened to hit off the right thing with this bit of musical frivolity. Nothing else of his is nearly so well known.
THE opening scene of Sadko is laid in the part, of Novgorod, where the assembly of merchants from many countries— Italy, India, and Norway, and other lands, allows the Composer to introduce a great deal of 'local colour,' as these people extol the beauties of their native countries.
A Hindu merchant sings this placid, dreamy song.

: Mr. R. SLOLEY : A Review of The Amateur Football Season'

A MATEUR football is apt to get crowded out of the newspapers by the more sensational exploits of the professionals, with their enormous crowds, gate receipts, and transfer fees. But the number of playing amateurs in the country is legion, and their matches and competitions excite an interest none the less keen because it is not expressed by crowds of eighty thousand at the same time. Any number of listeners will, therefore, welcome this review of the season's happenings by Mr. Sloley, himself a former Cambridge Blue, and now a member of one of the most famous of all amateur clubs.

TOURING the war between Turkey and Serbia in 1876, the great Russian pianist. Nicholas Rubinstein , brother of the still more famous Anton Rubinstein , organized a charity concert for, the relief of the wounded, and for the occasion Tchaikovsky, who was enthusiastic for the Slavonic cause, wrote this Slavonic March, which. in fact, he sometimes called a ‘ Russo-Serbian' March.
The opening of the March is very sombre ; in fact, it begins ' in the manner of a funeral march.' Later, the Russian National Hymn is heard, and the whole ends brilliantly and joyously.

: Mr. G. WATSON PARKER: Let's get a Car-Cleaning the Car '

IN tonight's talk Mr. Watson Parker will tackle a subject that is apt to be distasteful to the owner-driver—the ever-present problem of keeping the car clean. Whether to shelve it by merely driving to the garage, or whether to be really heroic (and economical) and go through all the wet and messy process oneself : that dilemma will be discussed by an expert tonight.

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.
