: 'Pride and Prejudice,' by Jane Austen Read by Mr. RONALD WATKINS

THIS is the first of a series of readings from
' Pride and Prejudice,' to he given at 6.50 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays from today until Septembei 8th, by Mr. Ronald Watkins. Admirers of Jane Austen 's demure masterpiece must forgive us mentioning, in introducing it to many new readers, that it contains some of Her richest comic creations, and her most delightful heroine. The humours of Mr. Bennet, Lady Catherine <Ie Burgh and Mr. Collins, the charm of Elizabeth and the pride of Mr. Darcy provide lively diversion for. summer evenings.
' Pride and Prejudice ' was written in 1797, hut not published until 1813. But no rumblings from the Revolutionary Wars mar this serene tale of the storms in the tea-cups of English provincial society in the last days of the eighteenth century.

: ' The Enchanted Island '

An Operetta in One Act
The Libretto written by R. H. U. BLOOR
The Music composed by Richard H. WALTHEW
THE music of this somewhat Gilbertian operetta was composed in 1900, and has since been frequently performed. It is, however, as a composer of chamber music that Richard Wal thew is best known, and nowhere is he better known and appreciated than amongst the audiences of the popular South Place Concerts at Finsbury. To the promotion and prosperity of these concerts Walthew has contributed a great deal. South Place is to chamber music what the ' Old Vic' is to opera, and the concerts given there, which already number considerably over a thousand, are of a very high level of performance. That, however, is not strange, since most of the artists invited to perform are in the first rank of performers, and are content to play to audiences as enthusiastic as any in the kingdom for a purely nominal fee. It is not so long ago that lovers of chamber music had but one Mecca, and that was at South Place in London. As a consequence, for thirty years and more Walthew and his colleagues have been and are still associated with a movement of inestimable value, a movement that broadcasting supplements and in no way displaces.

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.
