: A Pianoforte Recital

by TAPIA CABALLERO
The Scarlatti of the Sonatas—
Domenico-was a contemporary of Bach and Handel. All three were born in the same vintage year, 1685, and all died in the middle of the next century within a few years of one another. Scarlatti lives today by his harpsichord sonatas (over 300 of them, and all quite short), of which a complete edition is available in print. His fame during his lifetime was European. He held posts in Naples, Venice, Rome (where he formed a life-friendship with Handel), Madrid, and Lisbon, and gave concerts in Dublin, where he met Roseingrave, and London, where he met Handel again. Scarlatti is credited with being the founder of modern keyboard technique. In his time he made a deal of money, but, an inveterate gambler, he gamed it all away and died destitute.
Jacques Ibert , one of the youngest of modern French composers, has been conspicuous in the British broadcast programmes lately, particularly with his Escales (Sea-ports) , which was performed last month in the third of this season's Contemporary Concerts, and his Suite Symphonique, which is practically a series of pictures representing daily life in Paris.
The Danse du Meunier is the Miller's Dance from Falla's ballet, The Three Cornered Hat, called a farruca. It is one of the two main dance rhythms in the ballet.
The Dayise de Feu (Fire Dance) ' is from L'Amor Brujo (Love, the Magician), the other of Falla's two most famous ballets. Both these, as represented in this recital, are reduced for piano solo from the orchestral score.

: Radio Music-Hall

What makes a radio star? There are eight different answers in tonight's ' Music Hall ' bill that should throw light on that more than vexed question. Here in one programme are listeners' favourites who have from small beginnings built up national reputations by hard work and attention to listeners' tastes. Jack Payne first broadcast eight years ago from the Hotel Cecil with a band of eight; now, with those years of close B.B.C. connection behind him, he is a first-rate draw anywhere. Anona Winn has graduated through countless B.B.C. revues, and knows her job thoroughly, thanks to broadcasting. Stainless Stephen, the Sheffield schoolmaster, who writes his own inimitable material, is broadcasting's North-Country comedian par excellence. Leonard Henry came to the microphone from concert-party work and magnified his reputation enormously as a result. Two famous comedians, Billy Bennett and James Carew , planned ' Alexander and Mose ' entirely for broadcasting: now Albert Whelan feeds the omnivorous Billy, and the act is still first and foremost radio entertainment. The Western Brothers broke away from Percy Merriman 's ' Roosters ' three years ago, made a hit in cabaret with their dry original humour, and now make millions laugh, instead of hundreds. The success of the Buggins ' creations of Mabel Constanduros and Michael Hogan proves how an original conception, carefully adapted and produced, can win eventual broadcasting success-and stay a success. Mr. Flotsam and Mr. Jetsam were filling the halls when they first came to the studio: they're filling them fuller now.

: ' Should they be Scrapped ? '

Should Work be Abolished by Science ? A Discussion between Mr. Douglas JERROLD and PROFESSOR LEVY
Scientists and engineers in America are at present examining the chances offered by a better-ordered application of science to industry as a way of escape from the present economic chaos. The International Labour Office at Geneva are discussing the practicability of a forty-hour week. So there is considerable topical interest in tonight's discussion between Mr. Douglas Jerrold, journalist and novelist, and Professor Levy, a mathematician and scientist well known to listeners by his talks in last winter's ' Changing World ' series, in which the arguments for and against a new economic order will be summarised.

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.
