Bliss's ballet Checkmate was first produced in Paris in June 1937 by the Vic-Wells Ballet , under Constant Lambert, and they gave the first performance in England at Newcastle in September, 1937.
The story is based on the idea of a game of chess between Love and Death. Love is Red, and Death Black. The two items to be heard this evening are taken from a concert suite, which Bliss later arranged from the ballet music. In the ballet the Black Queen plays the rôle of femme fatale and at the end is left in possession of the board. Love has been conquered by Death.

: EASTBOURNE MUSIC FESTIVAL

The combined Eastbourne and Hastings Municipal Orchestras
Conducted by Sir Henry J. Wood 'Irene Scharrer (pianoforte) from the Winter Garden, Eastbourne
It is curious that so little should be known of the origin of such a masterpiece as Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto. No one can even give its date with certainty. Schindler. who knew Beethoven but is unreliable, says 1804 ; several writers say 1805 (without giving any authority) ; Thayer, greatest of Beethoven scholars, suggests the end of 1806. At any rate, it is certain that the Concerto dates from the period of Fidelia, the Violin Concerto, and the fourth and fifth Symphonies.
The whole work shows Beethoven in his most romantic mood. The dialogue in the slow movement between the strings in unison-harsh and adamantine-and the piano, which replies with some of the loveliest phrases ever written for the instrument, suggested to Schumann the idea of Orpheus pleading with the powers of the underworld for his Eurydice.

Presented by Bill MacLurg
It was a happy idea when Stanelli thought of his bachelor party, made a record of it, and played it over to Eric Maschwitz , then Director of Variety, who fell for it at once. That was in 1936. The Bachelor Party was on the air on and off for three years.
The scene is Stanelli's flat ;
Jim Emery ' is his servant and was his batman in the last war. ' Jim Emery ' is really Jack Wynne. Another original member is that Rrand comedian, Norman Long ' Old Teeth and Trousers '.Al and Bob Harvey have been among the bachelors before.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
