The Leas Cliff Hall , Folkestone
DOMENICO CIMAROSA, an eighteenth-century Neapolitan composer, secured world-wide fame with his operas. His biggest success was The Secret Marriage, which was first performed in 1792 before Leopold II at Vienna, where Cimarosa was at that time Court Kapellmeister; At the end of the performance the Emperor invited the whole company to supper and commanded another performance immediately afterwards.
The music of this opera still retains its freshness and brilliance, which are reflected to the full in the Overture. In style Cimarosa's music, with its inexhaustible flow of simple and charming melodies, has much in common with that of Mozart.
THERE are not many violin concertos that, apart from purely violinistic considerations, deserve to be called ' great ' music-perhaps barely a dozen. Among these Mendelssohn's Concerto in E minor takes a very high place, for in addition to the beautiful and effective solo writing, the orchestral texture, light and graceful though it is, is intended to be symphonic in importance rather than a mere accompaniment to a brilliant violin solo. Each of the three movements is simple in design and lyrical in appeal. ORCHESTRA
BOHEMIA produced three distinguished composers, Smetana, Dvorak, and Fibich, who formed a national school of music during the nineteenth century. Zdenek Fibich (1850-1900), if less original and gifted than his two contemporaries, composed, nevertheless, a fair quantity of orchestral and piano music and songs which display genuine individuality and poetic feeling and able craftsmanship. Fibich was at his best in short pieces, and of these ' Poeme ', from Moods, Impressions a?id Memories (a collection of 350 pieces for piano), made his name known throughout England by Kubelik's arrangement of it for violin and piano.

: 'In Trouble'

' The Adult Offender '—3
' Women in Prison '
MARGERY FRY, LL.D., J.P.
THIS is the third talk on the adult offender in this series. It will be given by Miss Margery Fry , and will deal with women in prison. Though the system of their treatment is the same as for men in principle, it cannot always be carried out in detail for various reasons. The number of women prisoners is small in comparison with men. They comprise for the most part ' drunks who keep on returning, other minor offenders with short sentences, and those who for reason of their age or recidivistic tendencies are untrainable, so that the application of the principles of classification and training must remain an ideal except at Holloway, Manchester, and, to some extent, Birmingham, where the numbers are sufficiently large to put it into practice.
Listeners who are interested in the question might read to their advantage Chapter XII of L. W. Fox 's admirable book, ' The Modern English Prison,' before listening to this talk. They will then follow Miss Fry's broadcast more easily and be in a better position to understand the difficulties of authorities in dealing with women offenders.

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.
