Mr. HOWARD MARSHALL : ' Cricket—the Lessons we have learned this Season
The season that is now drawing to a close has been a breathing space between the rigours of the M.C.C. tour in Australia and the visit of the Australian team next year. It has been a colourful season, blessed with sun, the West Indians; and the majestic progress of Hobbs to greater heights. Mr. Howard Marshall will summarise the lessons the season has taught in the playing and policy of the game.

THE B.B.C. SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA (Principal First Violin, CHARLES WOODHOUSE)
Conducted by Sir HENRY WOOD
Dvorak's ' Carnaval ' Overture is not a prelude to an opera as are most overtures. It is the middlo one of three concert overtures illustrating scenes of childhood, youth, and manhood. It was originally intended that all three should be played in succession to form a single symphonic work, but this overture is now always performed separately from the others. (Conducted by The Composer)
Of Respighi's three orchestral works dealing with phases of his native city, Rome, the ' Fountains ' was the first to appear. This work is descriptive of the four most famous of Rome's many fountains, at different times of the day, although only three of the movements are to be played this evening. The first movement is pastoral in character and reflects the cool freshness of early morning. In the second, the Triton figures on the fountain may be understood as sounding their horns, and the other mythical figures as dancing in the play of the water. The last movement, at evening, has a strain of sadness in its theme, the bells peal, leaves rustle, birds twitter, and the expressive silence of night creeps into the music at its close.

Hungarian Rhapsody, No. 2, in D minor and G Liszt
Liszt was always extremely interested in gypsy music, particularly that of the Hungarian gypsies. He wrote a long and learned book upon the whole subject. More, he gave great study to the special gypsy idiom and its origins, collecting tunes as he went. His interest dattd from his boyhood, when wandering gypsies used to camp near the village in which he lived, for young Liszt was never tired of sitting with them round the fire and listening spellbound to the music they made. Later he made good use of his experiences and the melodies he had collected. and lie wrote fourteen Hungarian Rhapsodies as well as other works of which gypsy melodies are the basis. He composed the Rhapsodies for the e pianoforte, by the way. They were scored later and by other musicians.

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.
