Current affairs
In his last broadcast of the term Noel Barber invited questions on 'current affairs ' from boys and girls who had listened to the series during the term. So many inquiries came in that the number of broadcasts was extended from one to five, and throughout July he and various experts are answering them.

: LIGHT MUSIC BY ELGAR

played by the BBC Midland Light Orchestra, conducted by Joseph Lewis
Chanson de matin Carissima
Suite of Four Elgar Songs: 1 Rondel ;
2 Queen Mary's Song ; 3 The Shepherd's Song ; 4 Like to the damask rose arr. Haydn Wood
Dream Children No. 2 Chanson de nuit
Sevillana (Spanish Scene)
Elgar was just as great a master of light music as he was of music of symphonic proportions. Granted the ideas in his more frankly popular pieces are slighter than in his larger and more serious works, but the same deft and polished touch is noticeable in the workmanship. This afternoon's programme includes some of Elgar's most charming short pieces, such as the ' Chanson de matin ' and ' Chanson de nuit ', which were originally written for violin and piano. The scoring for wood-wind, homs, and piano (or harp) of both these pieces is a model of economy and effectiveness. Perhaps the most subtle and delicate piece in this programme is ' Dream Children ' No. 2.

: 'THE QUAKER GIRL'

Musical comedy by James T. Tanner. Music by Lionel Monckton. Produced by Stephen Thomas. With a cast of well-known West-End artists. BBC Theatre Chorus, and BBC Theatre Orchestra, conducted by Mark H. Lubbock
The Quaker Girl appeared on November 5, 1910, at the Adelphi, being the piece with which George Edwardes began his management of the theatre. It was described at the time as a combination of musical comedy and comic opera, and had an immense success. All seats were booked for a month before the curtain rose for the first time ; the show ran, with 536 performances, until March 1912. In the title role-as the demure Prudence, who left her village home to become a mannequin in Paris-Gertie Millar found her best-known part. Hayden Coffin , who played Captain Charteris, wrote of the production that it seemed to have no outstanding numbers, but the waltz ' Come to the Ball' is probably now best remembered.

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.
