: EMANUEL STARKEY and his ORCHESTRA

From THE REGAL, MARBLE ARCH

: Organ Recital

by MAURICE VINDEN
Relayed from ST. MARK's, NORTH
AUDLEY STREET
FOR twenty-two years, till his death in 1918. Sir Hubert Parry held the post of Director of the Royal College of Music. For most of the time Sir Charles Stanford was there with him, and these two exercised such a profound influence on the generation of students who came in contact with them, that they may be said to have set the standards for, and coloured the minds of, almost all English musicians of this century.
Parry, as a composer, was prolific, and untiring.
His literary work, mostly on musical subjects, is solid, scholarly, and valuable. How he found time to do either, if not before breakfast, as has been supposed, it is difficult to imagine. Perhaps it may have had something to do with the fact that he was sometimes called the English Bach.

CONSTANCE WILLIS (Contralto)
THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section C)
(Led by F. WEIST HILL)
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
THIS aria occurs in the opera Alkestis. Admetus is to die, but Alkestis invokes the powers of death to take her life in order that her husband may live. In this noble song she declares her high resolve.
THE career of Jean Louis Nicodé was passed for the most part in Dresden, where he was director of the Philharmonic Concerts and Professor of the Conservatorium. His compositions are those of an ordinary symphonic writer until in about his fiftieth year he suddenly decided to write a huge concert work of operatic dimensions which would employ every orchestral instrument for which a plaver could be found. This work, entitled Gloria, is a kind of symphonic opera ; it is in six long movements, introduces chorus and leit motifs and leaves no room in the programme for anything else that evening.

: PARLIAMENT YESTERDAY AND TODAY-II

Mr. W. S. MORRISON , M.P. : ' The Growth of Parliament'
CHANGES in Parliamentary procedure and the tradition that governs its conduct far more closely than the official' standing orders' form a subtle process, imperceptible to most electors and many members, and fully understood only by the constitutional lawyer or historian. But the changes are responsible for the adaptability to new conditions of national life that has enabled the English Parliament to survive civil wars and revolutions, where more rigid constitutions would have snapped ; and to meet the legislative and representative needs of different generations. Mr. W. S. Morrison , who defended the English Sunday in a recent ' encounter' with Mr. Osbert Sitwell , is a Scots barrister and , Conservative M.P. for Cirencester and Chipsbury, and an illuminating speaker.

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.
