The Royal South Hants and Southampton Hospital-Appeal by C. F. Cabr , Member of the Hospital Extension Appeal Committee.
SITUATED in the largest passenger port in the country and serving a district which has a population of over 232,000 persons, the Royal South Hampshire and Southampton Hospital may not unfairly be described as ' Our Busiest Hospital.' Southampton has increased in size very rapidly during the last few years, and, with the development of the big docks scheme, the future growth of the town is likely to proceed at an oven more startling rate ; hence if the Southampton Hospital is to continue to minister adequately, as it has done for the last eighty-eight years, to the needs of the whole of this vast and ever-increasing population, an immediate extension of its premises is absolutely imperative. A Hospital Extension Fund has been opened, and it is for the generous support of this fund that the present appeal is being made.

The WIRELESS AUGMENTED ORCHESTRA, conducted by Capt. W. A. FEATHERSTONE IN 1894, the Royal Academy of Music attained three-score-years-and-ten, and its Principal,
Sir Alexander Mackenzie, composed an Overture as a celebration of the event; and as the Academy's President at that time was the ' Sailor Prince,' the Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, there could be no happier idea than to found the Overture, in part, on British sea tunes. Two of these, the College Hornpipe and Rule, Britannia! are used, as well as three other tunes of Mackenzie's own invention.

IN 1786 Mozart, then a popular public figure, was giving subscription concerts in Vienna.
He must have been very busy, for of one of his concerts, given about that time, his father writes home: 'Wolfgang played an admirable new Concerto which was in the copyist's hands when we arrived yesterday. Your brother had not even time to try over the Rondo.' However, Mozart managed to write and learn a new work for almost every concert. In all ho wrote seventeen during his time in Vienna (between 1782 and 1791). This one in A is a cheery, urbane work, in three Movements, the FIRST of which is built on two graceful themes, both given out by the Soloist. The SECOND MOVEMENT, called Siciliana, is after the style of the smoothly-flowing country dance from Sicily, in two-time, each beat being divided into three parts. The LAST MOVEMENT is a sportive Rondo, the three chief tunes being played respectively by Piano, Flute, and Bassoon and Clarinets.

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.
