(Section C) led by Marie Wilson
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
With the exception of a few nocturnes and one or two of his seven concertos, Field's compositions are now almost completely forgotten. Sir Hamilton Harty has now rescued four little-known pieces-a polka, a nocturne, a waltz, and a rondo-from undeserved oblivion and has scored them for small orchestra.
Warlock's Serenade for strings, written in honour of Delius's sixtieth birthday, is a charming little work. It is cleverly written in the style of Delius, but it is nevertheless imbued with the strong characteristics of Warlock's own style.

: 'MEET THE PRINCE'

A musical comedy adapted by John Watt from a P. G. Wodehouse story. Lyrics by Henrik Ege. Music by Kenneth Leslie-Smith with Diana Ward , Patrick Waddington , Davy Burnaby , Richard Goolden , Morris Harvey , Billie Baker , Ewart Scott , Joan Henley , William Ashley
The BBC. Theatre Chorus, the BBC Theatre Orchestra, leader, Tate Gilder , conducted by Mark H Lubbock
Produced by Desmond Davis
This gay little musical farce was last broadcast in September 1936. The scene is first set in London, then in the imaginary republic of Mervo, ' where no one has any work to do '. In Mervo the islanders are in the happy position of drawing their weekly wages from the profits of the casino.
The story concerns the complications that follow the advent to the throne of a prince who isn't in favour of gambling.

3-' Scotland ' by Robert Kemp
The producer of this programme, Robert Kemp , is as Scottish as- any Scot can be. He is an Orcadian by birth and an Aberdonian by adoption-his father is a Deeside clergy-man. Nevertheless, this programme will be the first feature he has produced dealing with Scotland.
Among the many quotations listeners will hear will be Scott's famous passage from the "Lay of the Last Minstrel '—' Breathes there the man with soul so dead.....'

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.
