String Quartet played by Clifford Knowles (first violin), Raymond Cohen
, Norman Cunliffe (viola),
Leonard Baker (cello)
Some critics have held that chamber music was not Delius's real medium of expression. It is true that he moved uncomfortably within the limits of the classical forms that have become more or less de rigueur in chamber music, but he wrote few things more characteristic than this Second Quartet, composed in 1916. The wistful. slow movement, ' Late
Swallows is saturated with Delius's individual poetry.

: 'MY DAY'S WORK'

Marshall Arthur , W. E. Thomas , and R. J. Blackmore
China-clay mining is an industry which few people outside Cornwall seem to know much about, Yet china-clay forms a part of almost every manufactured commodity we use today. Marshall Arthur , a pit captain from near St. Austell, tells something of what it involves.
W. E. Thomas is a thatcher from
Dorset, and R. J. Blackmore is a railway-worker from Swindon. Both callings, though dating from very different ages, are equally alive today.

: THE CRIME WAVE AT BLANDINGS'

A comedy for broadcasting from the story by P. G. Wodehouse
Production by John Cheatle
Never was a scene created in fiction with more delightful opulence and traditional indolence than that of Blandings Castle, seat of the Earls of Emsworth. Outside Blandings nature seems always to smile, despite the incredible carryings-on behind its walls. Certainly no excursion could more readily take the mind from depression than one among the noblemen, gardeners, angry aunts, and idle nephews of Blandings Castle especially when crime of the Blandings order is thrown in ! This play was originally broadcast on December 24, 1939

: BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section C) led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Rameau's opera Castor and Pollux is the second and probably the most successful of the composer's twenty-four stage works. It is a lyrical tragedy in five acts and a prologue, and was produced in 1737. Although the opera is no longer performed, some of its numbers are occasionally heard today.
The subject of the opera appealed to many other composers, and was particularly suited to the elaborate spectacle of eighteenth-century stage productions.

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.
