: An Excerpt from A Concert by BJind Artists

Relayed from the Armitagc Hall , National Institute for the Blind
Organ Accompanist, H. G. NEWELL
It seems that it is almost impossible to kill the spirit of the musician, however powerful a blow Fate may aim at him. Even deafness was overcome by Beethoven and Faure, and the number of gifted blind musicians, both executive and creative, is legion. The Braille System of Music Notation has only comparatively recently been perfected, and it is now possible to transcribe quite easily anything from a simple melody to a complex orchestral score, which opens out an immense field of activity for blind musicians in the future. Perhaps the most distinguished of blind musicians is William Wolstenholme , who was born in 1865 and has won for himself an enviable position as an organist and composer. Although blind from birth, Wolstenholmo took the degree of Bachelor of Music at Oxford when twenty-two years of age, and in 1908 went on his first organ recital tour in the United States.

: 'Tannhäuser and the Jockey Club'

A Radio Play by HANS G. LUSTIG
(See. centre column and article on page 453)
The Paris of 1860 saw the elegant tragicomedy of the Second Empire still running, to all appearances, successfully. There were hints that the third Napoleon was thinking of Liberal support for the Imperial facade, but Paris remained happily self-centred and self-secure. Politics left it cold, but the German ' barbarian ' Wagner raised the tern- pcrature of the town to boiling point one evening in March, by his preposterous new opera—Tannhäuser—' all pilgrims and dia- cords.' Paris, taught by Offenbach, Rossini and Meyerbeer that opera was a pleasant succession of melodies, punctuated by ballet, was outraged. Particularly the imperialist members'of the exclusive ' Jockey Club '—allpowerful in the social world-who regarded the best seats, the second-act ballet, and the ladies of the opera as their peculiar preserves. Napoleon III , who was not musical, might countenance this Teutonic insult for the sake of his foreign policy or for ' Mad Metternich,' but' The Jockeys ' 'would not. Tonight's play tells the story through the mouths of the chief participants in this Franco-German musical fracas, in which Wagner failed where Moltke succeeded ten years later, the Emperor backed another of many losers, and ' those affected cads' ' The Jockeys' defended the stronghold of Parisian culture with silver whistles.

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.
