Mr. VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON :
‘Key 3-Exploring a Key '
PREVIOUS talks in this series have explained clearly the nature of a musical key and how euch a key is formed and established. Mr. Hely-Hutchinson
. now discusses the possible limitations imposed upon musical expression by the use of only a single key. This raises the question of ' modulation,' or the alterations of the key in the course of the piece. These talks, which are given in simple language and assume no technical knowledge on the listener's part, aim at a quickening of his musical understanding.

: 'Dr. Abernethy —His Book'

A Play in One Act by ALICIA RAMSEY and RUDOLPH DE CORDOVA
Adapted by DULCIMA GLASBY
Produced by HOWARD Rose
IT is late in the day to say anything new about
Dr. Abernethy, who bids fair to become as famous a character on the radio as lie was in real life over a century ago. This renowned physician achieved a big reputation in Regency dnys, when all London flocked to his consulting-room. His popularity was duo not only to his revolutionary methods in the diagnosis and treatment of the varied ills of his patients, but in no small degree to his startlingly blunt bedside mnnner.' He made his first bow to the microphone just about a year ago in this amusing piny. The many listeners who expressed their appreciation at that time will welcomo this revival.

: An Orchestral Concert

KATE WINTER (Soprano)
THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section E)
(Led by F. WEIST HILL)
Conducted by PERCY PITT
THE number of young naval officers given to writing quartets while at sea cannot be large, but at least it inclndrs Rimsky-Korsakov and Albeit Roussel. Roussel served for about five years in the French Navy, and then, having collected enough encouragement to pursue his music studies seriously, he resigned his commission and entered the Schola Cantorum, Vincent d'ludy's famous music school. Later, lie became a professor at the Schola Cantorum and gave himself wholly to that and to composition. Ha has, however, composed comparatively little, ns appears to be the habit of modern musicians, who are able to spare so little time from their professorships for composition. But Roussel's compositions are distinguished, decoratively coloured, and most delicately finished. He has, for example, taken two years to write a symphony, three years to write an opera, and if a man's output is to be judged by his opus numbers, Roussel has averaged little more than one a year.
He is known to, England mainly by two orchestral works ?The Feast of the Spider, a ballet based on Henri Fabre 's fascinating life of that insect, and composed before the war, and For a Spring Festival, composed in 1920.

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.
