: • MY BROTHER JONATHAN'

by Francis Brett Young
Adapted for broadcasting by Olivia Manning
7-' Higgins' Buildings'
Produced by William Hughes
The Black Country town of Wednesford early in the present century was the scene of conflict between Dr. Jonathan Dakers and Dr. Craig. Craig, the Medical Officer of Health, has been using the local hospital as a private nursing-home for his middle-class patients, and Jonathan insists that some of his I poorer patients shall be treated there.
Craig tries to discredit Dakers, who retaliates by reporting on the disgraceful conditions of a block of workmen's dwellings called * Higgins' Buildings.'

Noel Streatfeild was herself one of a large family, living in a country parsonage. which accounts perhaps for her having chosen a parson's family as the leading characters of her new serial. No one understands better than Miss Streatfeild the ups and downs, the joys and sorrows, the troubles and delights of children, and in this family, saga every child will find something specially appealing.

: HENRY WOOD PROMENADE CONCERTS

Anthony Pini (cello)
BBC Women's Chorus
(Chorus-Master, Leslie Woodgate )
BBC Symphony Orchestra
(Leader, Paul Beard)
Conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargent
From the Royal Albert Hall. London
Part 1: Dvorak
Slavonic Dance in E minor
7.38 app. Cello Concerto in B minor
8.20 app. Symphony No. 4. in G
After reading through the score of Dvorak's Cello Concerto, Brahms exclaimed: ' Why on earth didn't I know that one could write a violoncello concerto like this? If I had only known, I would have written one long ago! ' Certainly the problems confronting a composer in this, most exacting of forms-problems mainly of balance and construction-were solved by Dvorak with a sureness and an ease that few have been able to rival. The whole work is masterly and attractive, compact as it is of spontaneous melody, bracing rhythms, and scope for virtuosity. It was written in 1894-5, at the end of Dvorak's stay in America. But it was London that had the honour of hearing it for the first time, at Queen's Hall in March 1896, when it was conducted by the composer.

: PROMENADE CONCERT

Part 2
It was Whistler's use of the word Nocturne, rather than Chopin's, that Debussy had in mind when giving his three orchestral pieces their title. The emphasis, he said, was on ' the various impressions and special effects of light that the word implies.' Nuages depicts ' the unchanging aspect of the sky and the slow, solemn motion of the clouds, dissolving in grey tones tinged with white.' Fêtes gives us ' the dancing rhythm of the atmosphere with sudden flashes of light. A dazzling procession passes through the festive scene and is lost in it.' FinaUy Sirènes (in which a choir of women's voices is introduced, singing a wordless song) is intended to suggest the sea, amongst whose waves, 'silvered by the moonlight, is heard the mysterious song of the Sirens as they laugh and pass on.' Harold Rutland

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.
