: JEAN SABLON

the tuneful singer
Some of his records
You have only once to hear the extraordinarily appealing quality of Jean Sablon 's voice to understand why he is one of the most popular cabaret artists in France. In fact he sings his songs as none other could sing them, with infinite personality and an unfailing way of appealing even to those who do not understand French. He does not, however, sing only in his native language, and he has recently made several recordings of songs in English, some of which you will hear this evening.

: MYRA HESS

in a Schumann recital
Fantasy-piece in A flat, Op. Ill Symphonic studies, Op. 13
Schumann composed his Symphonic Studies in 1834, when he was twenty-four years of age. These magnificent piano studies are written in the form of a theme and variations. Schumann said: 'Imay call them pathetic; but I have to show in varied lights whatever there may be of the pathetic in them.'
The theme is by Baron Hauptmann von Fricken, who composed a set of variations on it for flute. The work was sent to Schumann for his criticism and he was greatly impressed with the possibilities of the theme for piano treatment if suitably adapted.
In the finale, however, it gives way in importance to the opening melody, which is based on an air from Marschner's Der Templer und die Jüdin, sung to the words 'Who is the highly honoured knight' (referring to Richard Ca'ur de Lion), and ' Rejoice, proud England ' (a tribute to Sterndale Bennett , to whom the Studies are dedicated).

: 'THEN AND NOW

A series of fortnightly talks on the progress of social reform
1-' Has democracy stood still ? '
J. J. Mallon stands up to questioning
If we are to believe in democracy, we must examine it from all points of view. What is its record with regard to social progress ?
Tonight's talk, and those that follow it, will examine the outstanding social developments that have taken place in Great Britain and the Empire within the span of living memory. It will also be one of the objects of the series to look ahead and judge by past experience what is likely to develop in the future.
The whole series will be under the general editorship of Dr. J. J. Mallon , Warden of Toynbee Halt.

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
