A romantic review of the British
Empire in music, song, and story
Devised and produced by C. F. Meehan
Once again Mike Meehan , of ' In Town Tonight' fame, will conjure up a story of yet another place in the British Empire in this new series of his which began on September 5. Before coming into the entertainment world and making such a hit, first as Cochran's publicity man and then as script-writer and producer for the BBC, he saw much of the world as a soldier. He served for many years in the Indian Army ; was in France in the last war and wounded at Ypres. In 1917 he was at Baluchistan for the Mari operations, and then in Palestine until the end of the war. He was in the Afghan war in 1920, back in India in 1921, and with the Waziristan Field Force from 1922 to 1924.
' Walter home on leave '
With the' eldest Armstrong boy at home for a few days, the family have a chance of comparing notes on the difference between life at home and in the Army
You know the Armstrongs and have met them as the artist imagined them in the Radio Times the week before last. Once more some of this large family are on the air-airing their views, as it were, to each other while listeners generally, and Under-Twenty Clubs in particular, eavesdrop on their arguments.
Jack Penn, Alfie Noakes , and the Maple Leaf orchestra with Lyle Evans
Written and produced by David Miller
Devised and produced by John Gough aided by his fellows from Overseas
There are now many units of Overseas forces in this country-and to some purpose, as history will show. They come from the great ' out back', from the prairies, and even from the Arctic Circle, or from Dominion towns. Their will is the same as that of the Motherland-to cherish freedom, and to see that Hitler does not wipe it from the earth.
Quartet in D minor (Op. post.) played by the Catterall String Quartet-Arthur Catterall (first violin), Audrey Catterall
Lena Wood (viola), Johan Hock (cello)
Schubert's Quartet in D minor, which is in four movements, takes its name from the slow movement, which is a very beautiful set of variations on his song ' Death and the Maiden'. Indeed, this work might easily be called 'Tragic ', for, in addition to the choice of theme for the slow movement, the first movement is imbued with the spirit of resignation and sorrow. It was certainly written about the time that Schubert was going through pecuniary troubles and illness: ' I am ', he said, the most unhappy and wretched creature in the world.'
