For a Dream's Sake

DR. HANS RICHTER, who conducted a great many more works than he ever gave an opinion of, is reported to have once said that a certain work of each of three British composers would stand the test of time. He cited Parry's 'Blest Pair of Sirens', Stanford's Serenade for Orchestra, and Cowen's Scandinavian Symphony. But time has passed, so has Richter, and even the dictum has been forgotten. Sir Frederic Cowen's songs, however, are another matter. He has written some 300 of them, and though by no means all of them are sung today, a chosen few are to be found with consistent frequency in concert programmes all over the kingdom. When the ballad, which is now said to have waned, was at the height of its popularity, none had a greater following with every type and grade of singer than did Cowen, and with reason, for his range of expression and emotion combined with grace, fantasy, and consummate musicianship were not equalled in those days by any other writer of songs of the ballad order.

: ' THE NATIONS AT OTTAWA '—IV Mr. KENNETH BELL

THE Imperial Conference that assemblesthis month at Ottawa will be primarily concerned with economic questions. All possible methods of expanding the trade of the Commonwealth will be considered, particularly under the headings of production/distribution, and tariffs. For a proper appreciation of this task the peculiar outlook and resources of each part of the Empire must be known. Mr. Kenneth Bell reviews the political and social growth of New Zealand, summari zes i ts natural and i ndustrial resources, and estimates the national outlook its representatives stand for at the Conference.

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.
