A Playlet with Music
Words by EDITH REYNOLDS
Scene : The kitchen of a country cottage a few miles from Shrewsbury
Time: 1800
THE book of this Wayside Episode ' is by a sister of the composer, already known to' wireless listeners as author of Shepherd's Delight and other plays which have been broadcast. It is really a miniature operetta, with spoken dialogue and songs and duets for the two characters. There is a flute part, played by a . third character whoso voice is not heard, but whose flute music has a symbolic meaning.
The playlet and its music were specially written and composed for broadcasting.
' The Ballad of Black-eyed Susan'
Words by JOHN GAY
Chorus of Sailors
MR. REYNOLDS has set this old-time ballad for two voices, with a chorus of sailors, and orchestra. The scene is ' All in the Downs,' and at the beginning there is a merry hornpipe, in which bassoon, oboe, and other instruments share, each playing a little solo. The tale of the tender parting of William and his Black-eyed Susan is unfolded partly by the voices of the two themselves, partly by the chorus of sailors, and at one point there is a quartet of four men's voices, which breaks in with half-whimsical, halt-pathetic, effect. At the end, when Susan cries ' Adieu ' and ' waves her lily hand,' the hornpipe is heard again, but now like a phantom, in which the mocking spirit of the sea laughs at lovers' vows. It is played by solo flute.

: Mr. R. H. WILENSKI: ' The Dutch Exhi. bition'

MUCH has already appeared in the newspapers about the loan exhibition of Dutch masters that will be open to the public tomorrow at Burlington House. For mere size and scale and the staggering value of the pictures brought together, the exhibition is an epoch-making event. Artistically it is also a rare opportunity of studying the whole pageant of the Dutch school. Mr. Wilenski, the art critic, who will talk about the exhibition tonight, has just published an ' Introduction to Dutch Art.' Listeners will remember that he edited the special photogravure supplement on 'The Nativity in Art,' which appeared in the Christmas Number of The Radio Times.

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.
