: A Recital

by PETER DAWSON (bass) PETER DAWSON broadcast from a London studio for the first time in his career just over two years ago, and his somewhat rare appearances before the microphone since then have been among the most popular of recital broadcasts. He was born of Scottish parentage in Adelaide, South Australia, fifty. years ago, came to England when he was twenty, and studied singing under, amongst others, Sir Charles Santley, one of the greatest of a century of British singers. By 1909, after an experimental period as a comedian in variety, he was making his first appearance in opera at Covent Garden Theatre in a season of German opera conducted by Dr. Hans Richter. Since then he has toured, and toured again, Great Britain, the British Colonies, the Far East, and practically the world. There is no more popular artist singing today, and as evidence of that his gramophone success attests. In 1904 he made his first gramophone record, and he has been recording ever since. The latest figures show that over ten million records of Peter Dawson 's songs have been sold throughout the world-an almost incredible number.
These records are distributed over close upon two hundred different items, ranging from lieder and operatic excerpts to such familiar songs as Father O'Flynn and The Miner's dream of home. But part of Mr. Dawson's brilliance in his versatility. He is completely at home on any platform and in any programme.

: Chamber Music

EUGENE GOOSSENS remains for us an English composer, for we are not prepared to admit that his continued sojourn in the United States affects the issue of his nationality and our right to claim him as one of our most brilliant younger musicians. The Goossens family has been intimately associated with English music for close on sixty years. Eugene's grandfather was born in Bruges in 1845, and came to England in 1873, later being appointed conductor to the Carl Rosa Opera Company. His son later succeeded him with the same company, and with such antecedents it was only natural that the present Eugene, born in 1893, should have opera and conducting in his blood. Succeeding an early experience as a violinist with leading orchestras in London he began conducting at first during Sir Thomas Beecham 's opera season over twenty years ago and proved incontestably that though scarcely more than a boy he was already a conductor by instinct. His career since then has been one of astonishing brilliance. He now holds the post of conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and is rightly esteemed as one of the three or four most famous conductors in America, which is very near to saying of the world. Fortunately, he has found time to write a considerable number of compositions, which include symphonic works, chamber music, songs, and pianoforte works, incidental music for the theatre, and two operas to the text of the late Arnold Bennett.
His idiom is modern and original, and he is numbered in the van of those composers who have participated in the twentieth-century renaissance of British music.

: The Week's Good Cause

A VERY LARGE PERCENTAGE of the sickness that fills our hospitals is unnecessary ; it could be avoided if people had the opportunity of looking to their health before they lost it. The Pioneer Health Centre is a Health Club which will look after the health of 2,000 families living in Peckham. It is the first centre of its kind in the world, and its object is two-fold : to find out by actual experiment how to make modern biological knowledge available for the guidance of the normal individual before he is ill, and to find out by actual experiment how the insidious and combative disorders of the body that lead to disease may be attacked at their roots.
; While the hospitals afford training ground for the ' sick room ' doctor, the Pioneer Health Centre affords the first and, at present, the only practical training ground for the ' health ' doctor of the future. For this reason, if for no other, it merits the active support of everyone.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Howard Marshall , The Pioneer Health Centre, [address removed]

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.
