A Running Commentary by PHILIP NOEL BAKER on the International Athletic Meeting, relayed from
Stamford Bridge THIS meeting of representative athletes from the British Empire and the United States of America will be one of particular interest. Taking place only a week after the Olympic Games, we may expect quite 50 per cent. of the Olympic Winners to be present, and there is every likelihood that a large number of records will be broken.

BEFORE the 'event of the evening' - namely, the broadcasting of the first of this year's season of 'Proms,' - comes, in more flippant mood, the second presentation by Rex Evans, of his half-hour cabaret. If you are a regular listener, you know all about Rex Evans, that he sings syncopated songs, that he has rapidly achieved 'star' rank in the world of smart cabaret. mood, the second presentation by Rex Evans, of his half-hour cabaret.

His collaborator in this show, Rowland Leigh, is a young Oxford man with a real gift for snappy topical lyrics. He has written 'the words' for Sophie Tucker, Beatrice Lillie, etc., and leaves shortly for New York, where he has been commissioned to do the lyrics for a new show with music by the late Leslie Stuart.

Relayed from The Queen's Hall
TOWARDS the end of 1908, Tercentenary Celebrations of Milton's birth were held in London. At the famous Cheapside church, St. Maryle-Bow, close to which Milton was .born, celebrations took place on his birthday—December 9. For this occasion Sir Walford Davies wrote this Solemn Melody,
THIS was originally a sonata (written
4- in 1820) in four linked Movements, one of which uses a theme from Schubert's song The Wanderer. The other three Movements all work in some manner upon one common theme, of a peremptory, challenging character, which is distantly related to that tune. We hear this common theme at the very beginning, from the orchestra. The First Movement is quick and fiery, the Second (developing the song tune) is slow, the Third is very brisk and sportive, and the Last is in fugal style.
The work was originally written for and dedicated to the pianist von Zittin. Liszt adapted it for pianoforte and orchestra.

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.
