: THE FIRST OF THE NEW SERIES OF RIDGEWAY PARADES

'SWEEP NIGHT': A song and dance show, written by Holt Marvell and Philip Ridgeway. Musical arrangements by Dorothy Hogben . Devised and produced by Philip Ridgeway . (Fred Curtis, Bertha Wilmott, Irene Vere, Hermione Gingold, Gerald Osborne, Dorothy 'Dampier, Anna Day, Sinclair Cole, Bert Meredith, Douglas Pemberton, Lola Gordon, CAST: Beatrice Galleway, Jack Hodges, John Charlton, Paddy Prior, Arthur Jay, Wallace Norford, Dorothy Hogben and her Orchestra, and Philip Ridgeway. Singing, dancing, burlesque-and Mr. Ridgeway. The producer is the life and soul of his own shows. It is Philip Ridgeway who designed costumes for his ' Paraders ' to wear in the Studio, who makes his whole company dance furiously for a minute before the red light goes on in order that they should start their broadcast ' warmed up,' who created and impersonated 'Joe Ramsbotham' of Rawthenstall, of the unsteady Lancashire accent. These Parades, of which the present series is the third, are among the most generally popular light entertainments ever broadcast. They may lack the subtlety and satire of the revues of Gordon McConnel, John Watt, Denis Freeman ; their aim is otherwise—broad humour, popular songs, vitality, rather than finesse. Many of the members of former Parade companies are taking part in the present series. Mr. Ridgeway's musical director, Dorothy Hogben, is again in charge of the orchestra. Phiiip Ridgeway is well qualified to possess an acquaintance with the popular taste in enter- tainment. Still in his thirties, he has been connected with the theatre since he was a boy, as actor, author, producer and manager in turn. It is typical of his lively versatility that the two most widely acclaimed achievements of his career have been his introduction of Tchehov to London, at the Barnes Theatre, several years ago, and the invention last autumn of the Ridgeway Parades. Tonight he will be beside the microphone as usual, the inevitable flower in his buttonhole, waving his company on, a cross between Sir Henry Wood, Francois Descamps and Grock. So on with the show. We're a lot of little songs to chase the blues, Dancing shoes-to amuse. We're the lightest and the brightest of revues, We're the Ridge-way Pa-rade.

: A Symphony Concert conducted by Sir George Henschel

Margaret Severn (Contralto) The Wireless Male Chorus (Chorus Master, Stanford Robinson) The B.B.C. Studio Symphony Orchestra, Conducted by Sir George Henschel
The programme will be devoted to the music of Brahms.
Singer, pianist, accompanist, teacher, concert-giver, composer, and conductor - Sir George Henschel made his first appearance as a singer almost seventy-two years ago. Three years later he made his first public appearance as a pianist. Nevertheless, it was as a singer that we first knew him in this country, and he was among the pioneers of ' Vocal recitals.' In 1881, the year of his marriage to Miss Lillian Bailey, the American singer with whom he had often sung in duets, he was appointed conductor of the newly-formed Boston Symphony Orchestra ; but after three years in America, he made his home in England. It was he who established the London Symphony Concerts, and for some years he conducted the Scottish Orchestra in Glasgow and Edinburgh, bringing the orchestra to Windsor in 1895 to give a Command Performance. Orchestra Academic Festival Overture Margaret Severn, Chorus and Orchestra Rhapsody, for Alto, Male Chorus and Orchestra But alone there—Who is't ? in the bushes is path now is lost, After him .the branches <-{n*e together. 3EBe grab's rises again— <)l>iivion engulf.-* hito. Ah. who healeth the sorrows of him whose balsam turned poison, hate of men put of the fullness of love has drunk ? despised, then a Secretly he now feeds on his own worth In unsatisfied self-love. Ts upon Thy psalter, Father of love divine, One tone that his ear may distinguish ? Oh, so comfort his heart ! Open Thou his clouded night. Show him the thousand fountains Close to the thirsty one in the desert. From the English version of Goethe's poem. made by Sir George Herschel Orchestra Symphony, No. 2, in D Allegro non troppo ; Adagio non troppo ; Allegretto grazioso (Quasi andantino) ; Allegro con spirito

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.
