Adventures of Plymouth Sound
A Play by L. DU GARDE PEACH
THIS PLAY is all about the Pilgrim Fathers, and whenever you hear of them you think of the Mayflower, for that was the ship in which a hundred Puritans, fleeing from religious persecution, sailed from Plymouth to America on September 6, 1620.
That Plymouth-not only Plymouth,
England, but Plymouth, U.S.A.—so much concerns them was the result of accident, for they had sailed from Southampton a month earlier in two boats, one the Mayflower and the other the Speedwell, but the latter was found untrustworthy, and the Mayflower sailed alone from Plymouth, as we have seen.
Then, again, accident played a part in their future, for they intended to land in Virginia, but, from some cause or another, landed in Massachusetts instead. They were among the first settlers, and the first town they built they called Plymouth after the name of the port they had left. It might just as well have been Southampton, Virginia, but for chance.
These settlers and their descendants changed the whole course of American history, but du Garde Peach's play this afternoon has to do with their departure from Plymouth Sound. A brave body of men and women, undaunted by the false starf they had made, setting out on a perilous journey to an unknown land.

JOHN HILTON (Professor of Industrial Relations in the University of Cambridge)
' THE BEST-LAID SCHEMES....' Friction in the human bearings. Envies, jealousies, and frustrations. Bullying on both sides; its successes and failures. The new and better type of manager and foreman. Trade unionism: its rôle and policy. Grievances and complaints. Industrial justice. What is possible if the spirit is right. Engaging, training, up-grading, and promoting. The labour superintendent. Committees, canteens, and clubs. Moods and tempers as important as machines and organisation.
This is a synopsis of Professor
Hilton's talk this evening. Next Thursday he will discuss Plans and Policies.

: A Recital: Boris Schwarz (violin) Enid Cruickshank (contralto)

"To the Nightingale" tells of one in whom the mournful song of the nightingale arouses sad memories. 'Pour not out so the strains of love’ he pleads.
"Death that is the cool night", one of the loveliest of Brahms's songs, is a setting of Heine's well-known lyric.
"In the churchyard" tells of one who wandered on a day of wind and rain through a neglected churchyard and seemed to see on all the forgotten tombstones the sad word Gewesen (which means simply 'been'), but at the end he knows, with a blessed hope, that the word should be Genesen (which means 'recovered from sickness', and is here used in the sense of 'arisen').
"Ever fainter grows my slumber" is one of the favourites among Brahms's songs. Its mood of drowsiness and restrained passion gives beauty to the lament of one who is dying heart-broken.
Erich Wolfgang Korngold, the son of one of the foremost music critics of our time, made his first appearance as a composer at the precocious age of only eleven, with a Pantomime, "The Snow Man". It was produced at the Royal Opera, Vienna, in 1897. Other operatic and chamber music followed closely on its heels, and he had won an important place for himself while he was still in his 'teens. More than one of these works was immediately successful, and his operas, "Violanta" and "Die tote Stadt" ("The Dead Town") are regularly included in the repertoire of most German opera houses.
"Peace My Soul" is a love song. Strauss had to use what lyrics offered themselves in his country's literature, and most German lyrists are stricken either with love or with grief. In this case the wound is to be stanched.
"Autumn Crocus" is a tiny song which extols the pretty flower that is shaped like a lily and is coloured like a rose, but whose poison concealed in its petals makes this autumn flower like a last fond love, sweet but faded.
"Droop o'er my Head" is a lover asking that he may rest in the shade of the raven locks of his beloved, in the soft light of her eyes.
In "Cecily" Strauss indulges to the full his habit of heroic, exultant melody with a rushing turbulent accompaniment and plunging modulation.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
