: Pride and Prejudice,' by Jane Austen,

read by Mr. RONALD WATKINS
MR. WATKINS resumes his readings today at
Chapter XXII and proceeds on Thursday to the end of Chapter XXVIII. The astounding Mr. Collins within the space of three days is refused by Elizabeth and accepted by Charlotte Lucas , who is, however, under no illusions about him ; for. ' the stupidity with which he was favoured by nature must guard his courtship from any charm that could make a woman wish for its continuance.' He is soon made the happiest of men, and bears off his bride in triumph to Lady Catherine in Kent, where, after a decent interval, Elizabeth and her family follow on a visit that is to have momentous consequences.

: The Viennese Waltz

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section C)
(Led by F. WEIST HILL )
Conducted by EDWARD CLARK
VIENNA was the nursery of the waltz, and has always been regarded as its home, but Vienna was not its birthplace. It came originally from Germany and was dn its original form a German country-dance. The Ländler, for which Schubert and Beethoven, amongst others, wrote music, was the name these particular country dances went by. Joseph Lanner , who was born near Vienna in 1801, has always been considered the father of the waltz. He wrote a quantity of very delightful dance music, particularly waltzes, some of which are still as popular as ever they were. He not only wrote these tunes, but formed a band to play them, so successfully that Lanner and his Band toured the Continent for years and were welcome in every city in Europe.
One of the first men he engaged for his little orchestra was a viola p]ayer of the name of Johann Strauss ; this was Johann the elder, and in a short time Strauss began writing dance music himself and formed his own band. He was more successful even than Lanner, and his career reads like a romance. He was a favourite in every court in Europe, and the 150 odd waltzes that he wrote, to say nothing of other dances, practically dominated the ball-rooms of the entire world. Of his three sons, Johann, Josef, and Eduard. the first is the most famous, though they were all inexhaustible composers of dance tunes. Johann the younger is, indeed, the most famous of the whole family. Not a day passes, scarcely an hour, when the wavelengths of the world are not vibrating to some of the music, written by Johann Strauss. He is a composer, too, of a number of operas, of which we know only Die Fledermaus and the Gypsy Baron, which in their own sphere are as deathless as Don Giovanni and Fidelio. In Vienna, his birthplace and his kingdom, there is no artist more vividly or more affectionately remembered.

: 'To See Ourselves'

Produced by PETER CRESWELL
THIS charming domestic comedy had its first broadcast performance last September, and ran for several months previously at the Ambassadors Theatre. Miss Delafield, herself a Devonian, sets the scene of the play in her own county. The theme-does Marriage destroy Romance ?-is treated with modern candour, and with a pleasant dressing of humour and sentiment. Since there is little action, the dialogue is all-important, and, as one would expect from the author of ' Tho Diary of a Provincial Lady,' the writing is crisp, conversational and delightfully ironical.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
