: Orchestral Hour BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

(Leader, J. Mouland Begbie )
Conductor, Ian Whyte
Denis Dowling (baritone) (first performance)
Anthony Scott, who is an organist and teacher as well as a composer, was born in 1911; he studied at the Royal College of Music with Herbert Howells and later with Gerald Finzi. His works include a Fantasia for string orchestra, which was broadcast some years ago, a S nfonietta for strings, several organ pieces, and a Violin Concerto, which was given recently at a concert of the Society for the Promotion of New Music. His Introduction and Fugue for orchestra was completed in 1946. Kurt Koppel was born in Berlin in 1916, but has lived in this country for the past sixteen years and is now of British nationality. He studied with William Alwyn at the Royal Academy of Music and has to his credit a considerable number of works, three of which have been broadcast: a Symphony for Strings, a Piano Concerto, and ' Summer Music.' The Five Songs for baritone and strings, written in 1947, are settings of lyrics by a Welsh poet, Leslie Norris, which express the thoughts, hopes, wishes, and fears of a young man. Their titles are: ' The Day,' ' The Individual,' 'Divided Vision,' ' The Mind,' and * The Arrow of Truth.'

: CHRISTIAN AND LIBERAL VALUES

A series of four talks
3-The Christian Faith and Liberal Values
by Canon Charles Raven
Canon Raven takes up some of the points made last week by Sir William Hamilton Fyfe about the reasons why liberal values teem to be losing their hold over the people of our generation. He examines these reasons and shows that they are iargely out of date, indeed that a return to Christian standards is beginning. This should involve acceptance of the Christian faith and the renewal of energy and unity in the Christian Church. Canon Raven is himself a liberal theologian and has made notable contributions to the understanding of the relation between science and religion. He brings this wide knowledge to bear on the intricate problem of the relation between Christian and liberal values.

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.
