: ' Six Types of Tudor Prose

VI-Biography,' by Mr. T. S. ELIOT
For the last of his six types of Tudor prose, Mr. Eliot takes biography ; and certainly no Tudor biography has such an ideal appeal as Fulke Greville 's 'Life of Sir Philip Sidney. ' There is no figure more attractive, from that attractive period, than Sidney, who as soldier-poet, combines in perfection the two main traits of Elizabethan character : love of physical adventure and love of mental adventure, too. As a poet he wrote some sonnets that are, Shakespeare alone excepted, the glory of that singing age ; and as a soldier he typified, by his death at Zutphen, the very idea of Elizabethan chivalry. A finer subject for biography would be hard to find-if all were known about the man ; but Greville wrote biography before the modern methods of particularization and exactitude had come into practice ; with the result that, charming as is the renowned picture of Sidney he has given us and well-qualified as he was-by reason of his intimate friendship with Sidney, his sharing of adventures from schooldays to Sidney's death,and his agreementwith Sidney's views of literature and life-to paint it, we could wish to know much more of this fine flower of Elizabethan courtiers,

WATCYN WATCYNS (Baritone)
THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA Conducted by JOHN ANSELL
BORN in the South of England in 1872, Hermann Lohr has for long held a foremost place in the affections of English singers and audiences. It is no exaggeration to say that some of his songs are known everywhere. As is only natural, this orchestral Suite is song-like in character, and even the names of the movements, indicating clearly what their composer would have them mean for us, all suggest that he had singing in mind as he wrote them. It is, of course, one of the best compliments one can pay to a melody to say that it would lend itself well to singing.

8.0 8.30 (Daventry only) The Foundations of Character VI-Discipline or Freedom, by Mr. Z. F. WILLIS
INhis last talk during this present series,
Mr. Willis attacks perhaps the most pertinent question of all in connection with the foundations of character. In how far is the freedom of expression and outlook and behaviour, that has more or less grown up with the present generations, beneficial or detrimental to a proper ease in the growth of character ? In other words, what is the solution of the — present dilemma of freedom or discipline ? Mr. Willis will also attempt to define the limits of permissible and necessary intervention on the part of Society.

From Knavesmire, York
S.B. from Leeds
PART II
The scene of the Tattoo shows the walls of York, and the Minster, with two gates of the city on either side.
Pageant-' Unity and Peace '
War
The long-drawn-out War of the Roses is portrayed. The rival armies approach one another, and a hand-to-hand combat takes place. Massed Bands play martial music.
Peace
As the battle ends, Organ Music and Singing is heard from the Minster, whose stained glass windows gradually light up. The Gates of the Minster open, and an ecclesiastical procession emerges. At the same time, processions of civilians in mediaeval dress converge on the stage from all sides, singing. The rival armies, now at peace, line up on either side. A hymn is sung, and a song of praise, and as the great Amen is heard, all lights die out, except from the Minster windows.
Grand Finale
After a slight pause, the Massed Bands enter from the Minster Gate, followed by the Massed Drums and the various units that have taken part in the Tattoo. When all have taken their places, the first verse of ' Abide with Me ' is played and sung by the Bands and Choir. The second verse is sung by an echo Choir, and the remaining verses by the Band, Choir and Audience. The Pageant concludes with the National Anthem.








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.
