THE STORY of Daudet's play relates how a young Provencal farmer is torn between a passion for a dancer of Aries, a neighbouring town, and h:s repulsion against what he realises has been her life in the past. He cannot forget her, nor can he overlook her unworthiness, and takes his own life as a way out of his tragic dilemma. The Prelude epitomises the dramatic elements of the play; the Minuet is a solo for flute with harp accompaniment; the Adagietto for muted strings only, accompanies, in the play, the meeting of the hero's mother and her former lover whom she has not seen for fifty years.

: Sports Talk ' Derby Winners'

His Grace THE DUKE OF PORTLAND,
K.G.
THERE'S MAGIC in the names of these Derby winners whose blood still lives in race-horses running today. Flying Dutchman, Blink Bonny, Blair Athol ; Galopin (forbear of the Duke of Portland's famous horse, St. Simon) ; the Duke of Westminster's four winners between 1880 and 1899-Bend Or, Shotover, Ormonde, and Flying Fox. St. Simon's sons, Persimmon and Diamond Jubilee , winners for Edward VII when he was Prince of Wales. And who can forget Volodyovski— known as ' Bottle of Whisky ' to the crowd ?
It comes to few men to win a Derby, to fewer still to-win it twice, and to even fewer t . win it in consecutive years. This evening the Duke of Portland is to tell listeners about the victories of Ayrshire and Donovan, his winners in 1888 and 1889. One of the most famous of Derby winners was Bend Or's son, Ormonde, who, ridden by Archer, won in 1886. John Porter of Kingsclere, who trained seven Derby winners, considered Ormonde the greatest horse he had ever known. Ormonde won the 2,000 Guineas, the Derby, and the St. Leger, and thus won what is known as the triple crown ; he ran in fifteen races, won over £27,000, and was never beaten.
A good story is told about him.
His owner, the Duke of Westminster, held a reception at Grosvenor House, Park Lane, to celebrate Queen Victoria's Jubilee in 1887. Ormonde stood on the lawn, surrounded by admirers. He always had a partiality for buttonholes. The Queen of the Belgians fed him with lawn grass and carnations ; Indian princes with geraniums and pelargoniums. He had the day of his life.

: ' Time to Spare'

OWING to the long-continued depression in the textile industries, Lancashire has suffered from unemployment as much as any county in England, and because so many women are normally employed in the North they have possibly suffered more than elsewhere.
One has in mind the tragic case of the woman who has never married, who is without parents or a home, who has reached an age when such employment as there is goes to younger, quicker, stronger, and more attractive women, leaving her passed by. She has frequently to struggle to live on 12s. or 13s. a week in a single room, poverty-stricken and isolated, without hope. It is the intention to bring an unemployed, single woman from Lancashire before the microphone this evening to tell her unenviable story.
An interesting article describing how these talks have been arranged, and how the speakers are selected, will be found on page 588.

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.

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.
