(Section C)
(Led by MARIE WILSON )
Conducted by VICTOR HELY -
HUTCHINSON
On December 16, 1922, Saint-Saens died, at the age of eighty-six. His biographer,
. Arthur Hervey , has truly pointed out that ' when Saint-Saens was a boy, Mendelssohn, Chopin, and Schumann were alive ; Meyerbeer was the supreme master of opera ; Berlioz was striving hard, and not too successfully, to obtain recognition; Wagner and Verdi were at the beginning of their glorious careers ; Gounod, having lately won the Prix de Rome, was earning his livelihood as an organist; Dumas, Balzac, Victor Hugo , Georges Sands , were at the zenith of their fame : Louis Philippe , the citizen king, ruled over the French. Between then and now, what a difference! Saint-Saens has lived through these times, and if he felt inclined to refer to them would be amply justified in applying to himself the words of the poet, " Quorum pars magna fui." '
In England today hardly more than three of Saint-Saens's numerous works remain in the repertoire : ' Samson and Delilah,' ' Le Rouet d'Omphale,' and ' Le Cygne ' ; even the violin and piano concertos once so popular with soloists and audiences alike are rarely heard. Saint-Saens is paying the price exacted from all composers who enjoyed during their lifetimes a greater popularity than they really deserved. The time will come, however, when the pendulum will swing back in his favour, but never to the extent it did before.
The Suite Algerienne ' was inspired by a tour of Northern Africa in 1880. The music is both charming and effective, and is suitably imbued with local colour.

: 'The Mulberry Bush'

A Social Comedy specially written for broadcasting by E. M. DELAFIELD
Produced by ROBIN WHITWORTH
A new comedy by the author of the very successful To See Ourselvex, which was produced at the Ambassadors' Theatre, December, 1930, broadcast in September, 1931, and again in August, 1932. Miss Delafield is also the author of ' Diary of a Provincial Lady,' and is known to listeners as a talker as well as a playwright; her morning talks on books in the spring of this year were widely appreciated.
In The Mulberry Bush , Miss' Delafield again uses her gift for gentle irony with telling effect. She castigates the snobbishness rampant in a contemporary country-house, which is the setting for her social comedy, telling at the same time a veracious story of honest people in a world of pretenders.
Her work will be interpreted tonight by broadcasting actors of experience and resource. Gladys Young 's subtlety should ensure a memorable portrait of the ineffable Lady Lorimer, and the names of Ann Trevor, Rosalinde Fuller and Mary Hinton, in the other female parts, promise well. Harold Scott, as a portrait painter, has rich material for a glowing portrait of a Bohemian, and Gordon McLeod and Glen Byam Shaw, in straighter parts, can be relied upon for firm, satisfying performances.

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.
