(Conducted by THE COMPOSER)
W. H. Reed , M.V.O. (or if you prefer it, as most of those who know him do. Willie Reed ), has been a member of the London Symphony Orchestra since its foundation twenty-nine years ago and its loader since 1912. But orchestral playing is not by any means the whole of his work. As a chamber music player he took part in the first performance of Elgar's chamber works; ho teaches at the Royal College of Music, and does a good deal of conducting. As a composer he has written half-a dozen or so growingly successful works for orchestra. Nearly all of them have been first produced in the West Country, which is as it should be-Reed is a Somerset man.

: 'Blank Hotel''

Here is Radiovaria again, and again a definite story running through the programme. Claude Hulbert is assistant manager of an hotel which is on the rocks. As this is his career, and as he is engaged to be married to Enid Trevor , who is the daughter of Tommy Handley , the proprietor, something has to be done about it, and listeners may trust Claude Hulbert to do it. With Leonard Henry as an Indian Rajah , who is important to the plot, and Horace Kenney as a lugubrious waiter, listeners may be sure of droll situations and plenty of fun.

THE BROSA STRING QUARTET
MARK RAPHAEL (Baritone)
The Emperor quartet is so called because the last movement consists of a set of variations on Haydn's own arrangement of The Emperor's Hymn. It is not only one of the most popular quartets, but one of the most beautiful, and is one of the set of six which includes also the quartet known as ' The Sunrise '.
Dvorak wrote this work on his return from America. It is true he had there been impressed with the beauty of the Negro melodies, and there is a decided hint of their employment hero, or so thought the Americans who claimed to have inspired the quartet. Dvorak's country-men indignantly thought otherwise, but the name of The Nigger Quartet has persisted. What probably has appeared to give colour to this impression is the fact that many of the tunes in the work are built upon the pentatonic (five-note) scale, which is as though one employed only the black notes of a pianoforte keyboard. It is one of .the most popular of Dvorak's quartets with listeners, and a very great favourite with string players for whom Dvorak was a true and understanding friend.

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.
