: ' Pillars of the English Church'

Scribes-I
Jeremy Taylor
By the Rev. Canon
A. C. DEANE , M.A.
IN THE FIRST of four talks on men of letters famous in the Church of England, Canon Deane, Canon of St. George's, Windsor, discusses Jeremy Taylor. It was said by Taylor's friend, George Rust : ' This great prelate had the good humour of a gentleman, the eloquence of an orator, the fancy of a poet, the acuteness of a schoolman, the profound-ness of a philosopher, the wisdom of a chancellor, the reason of an angel, and the piety of a saint ' ; and whatever allowance be made for friendship, it seems to have been the general opinion of his contemporaries that he was a man of great personal charm.
Archbishop Laud may be said to have discovered him. Befriended by Charles I, he returned royal favours with a passionate loyalty at the risk of his'life. Chaplain to the king during the Civil War, he was captured at Cardigan in 1645. He returned to Golden Grove, Carmarthenshire, and there for ten
years devoted himself to theology, writing the works for which he is best known, but his loyalty, shown in a preface, incurred his imprisonment in Chepstow Castle in 1655. He lost two of his sons, and, coming to London, actively espoused the Royalist cause, this time being incarcerated in the Tower. Asylum was found for him at Lisburn, in Ireland, until the Restoration. Charles 11 appointed him Bishop of Down and Connor, and, later, of Dromore. He died at Lisburn in 1667. His style in writing has been compared to Milton's and won the eulogies of Coleridge.

: Chamber Music

THE ITALIAN TRIO:
ALBERTO POLTRONIERI (violin) ;
ARTURO BONUCCI (violoncello) ;
ALFREDO CASELLA (pianoforte)
THE ITALIAN TRIO is an organisation that has flourished with great distinction for some years, both in Italy and on tour in Europe and America. The membership has not always been the same ; Bonucci, the 'cellist, being the only original member. In the early days of the Trio the players had a unique. experience. They made a tour of South American ports, giving performances, more often than not, on the boat itself.
They have since toured extensively, this visit to England by no means being their first. The pianist, Alfredo Casella,
.is the player best known to British listeners, for Casella is not only a pianist, but one of the foremost Italian composers of today, a conductor, and a writer on musical subjects.
His Siciliana e burlesca, to be performed in this concert, was written originally for flute and piano, for a competition organised by the Paris Conservatoire in 1914. Three years later Casella wrote a version of the work in the form of a Piano Trio ; this is the version now to be performed. A Siciliana is a piece of music in a slow, languid tempo, and it is characteristic of Casella's work that such langour is congenial to him. The Burlesca which follows is lively and quick-moving and, as its title suggests, full of musical humour, inclined perhaps towards caricature. The humour, however, is not entirely genial, for with the true nature of the comic spirit a vein of poignant sentiment runs through it. The Bach Trio is arranged by Casella from the 'Musical Offering', which, based upon a melody given him by Frederick the Great, was composed and sent by Bach to Frederick as an offering from one musician to another. Clementi, though born in Rome, lived most of his life in England. He is known more for his piano works than for his chamber music.
Ravel's Trio is considered by some musicians to be the greatest of his chamber works.

: Daventry The Week's Good Cause

An appeal on behalf of THE COUNTY INFIRMARY, CARMARTHEN, by Lady
DYNEVOR
THE APPEAL tonight is for funds to erect a Maternity Ward for Carmarthen Infirmary, which is without one, though it serves the whole county, treating patients from far-flung areas within its borders and even outside.
It is surely all wrong that the ' Mother
Institution' of a county in Great Britain should be without a maternity ward, the need for which becomes more and more urgent. The site chosen is ready, but nothing can be done without money.
The Dinefwr family were associated with the founding of the infirmary in 1847, and still actively help it. Lord
Dynevor is one of the.trustees, and Lady
Dynevor, who broadcasts this appeal, is President of the Linen League, which makes itself responsible for the supply of sheets and so forth, and keeps them in repair.
It has been said in Carmarthen, and she will confirm the truth of it, that the suggested Maternity Ward will have the blessing of everyone.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]
London National will radiate the London Regional Week's Good Cause, North National the North Regional Week's Good Cause, and Scottish National the Scottish Regional Week's Good Cause. West National will close down till 8.50

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.
