KARL ULRICH SCHNABEL
(pianoforte) KARL ULRICH SCHNABEL is the son of Artur Schnabel, and follows in his father's footsteps as a virtuoso pianist. His first public appearance in this country was made two years ago, and it was then made clear that the name of Schnabel on a programme, whatever the initials, makes a promise to the listener of an excellence that is invariably cashed in full.

C. F. WHITTALL
LISTENERS may perhaps remember the special broadcast which was carried out on Armistice Day, 1933, when seven three-minute talks were given in succession from various capitals in Europe : Paris, Rome, Vienna, Budapest, Warsaw, Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Berlin.
Tonight's broadcast is the first in a new series of talks from abroad, which will be given on Thursday evenings throughout the spring and summer. This new series is, in a way, an amplification of that special programme, and the speakers who took part in it will now have an opportunity to develop at greater length the latest news from the part of Europe in which they live.
Tonight's speaker is
Mr. C. F. Whittall , who is Reuter's correspondent in Rome, and will be speaking from there. Rome is, perhaps particularly suitable for the first talk in this series, in view of the recent meeting there between Signor Mussolini , Doctor Dollfuss, and General Gomboes, and also of this week's picturesque ceremonies in connection with the termination of the Holy Year.

: 'Comfortable Words'

WHEN one recalls the first broadcast of this oratorio programme from the Birmingham studio on the eve of Armistice Day, 1929, the aptness of its title is revealed. The programme itself is fully explained by Joseph Lewis , who compiled it, and whose conception it was, on page 974 of this issue.
There is nothing unusual in presenting in one programme a number of varied excerpts from the oratorios of different composers. Where, however, this careful compilation is different is in the linking up of several excerpts to form a cohesive whole strictly relevant in mood and sequence to a central idea-in this case, the idea of distress finding comfort in the loving compassion of God. Nearly all the excerpts are well-known, not only to the thousands who have shared in the performance of them, but to the tens of thousands for whom listening to them is a major part of their musical education. Oratorio is still the staple fare wherever, in the British Isles, there is a choir, and though Mr. Lewis's selection discovers nothing new, nothing even strange, old affection will be alert to greet a compilation that presents the familiar in a new grouping of sympathy and purpose.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
