Edward Robinson (violoncello)
MERIEL ST. CLAIR GREEN (mezzo-soprano)
SLAVONIC FOLK SONGS are better known to British listeners in arrangements presented by Dvorak and other Slavonic composers, and as tunes upon which Slavonic composers have based their Slavonic works. Not alone Dvorak. but Smetana, Janacek, and quite recently Weinberger, the composer of Schwanda the Bagpiper, have all made extensive use of the very rich folk-song material peculiar to the Slav races.
QUARTET
Scherzo and Notturno Borodin Allegro Gliire
THESE TWO MOVEMENTS are from Borodin's Second Quartet in D, composed in 1888. In the Scherzo there are two distinct moods, one bustling and vigorous, and the other sensuous and lyrical, the theme of which is closely related to one in the Polovtsienne Dances in Prince Igor, and yet slightly reminiscent of the melody sung by the Flower Maidens in Wagner's Parsifal (although there is no suggestion of plagiarism). The Notturno, the third movement of the Quartet, is often played separately from the whole, and is an example of a thoroughly beautiful and expressive lyric.
REINHOLD GLIÈRE died in 1926 at the age of fifty-one. He wrote a fair amount of chamber music, but only two Quartets. His popularity amongst chamber music players was perhaps greater before the War than it is now. His idiom belonged to a generation that had Tchaikovsky and Rimsky-Korsakov as its models.

Appeal for Children's Country
Holiday Funds by Sir MALCOLM CAMPBELL , M.B.E.
ALTHOUGH Malcolm Campbell makes and breaks world's motor speed records, he does find time occasionally to take his own small daughter for a drive in the country just as many other parents do. Perhaps they go for a picnic on a moor, or stop somewhere for a farm-house tea, or run down to the coast for a dip and cricket on the sands.
But there are children who have never been into the country, or even seen the sea, and who have no chance of a holiday without someone to help them to have one. It is for the sake of these children that Malcolm Campbell , as a parent, is to appeal to parents in the Children's Hour this afternoon. Please send your contributions to [address removed]

: A Recital

WINIFRED SMALL (violin)
MAURICE COLE (pianoforte)
BENJAMIN DALE , now a distinguished member of the staff of the Royal Academy of Music, is an important member of the British renaissance which covered the decade just before the War, and though he has not since added many more to his early list of compositions, all possess a distinction which the years appear to enhance. His music is notable for the beauty of its craftsmanship and for the originality of its melodic invention. That of his work which shows him at his best lies in the chamber works he wrote at the prompting of Lionel Tertis , for Dale was amongst the first to collaborate with Tertis in lifting the viola into the kingdom of solo instruments.
THE THIRD is the latest of Arnold Bax 's Sonatas for violin and piano. Bax has throughout his career added to the repertory of chamber music with consistent regularity, and his work is amongst the most important of modern English chamber music. He, too, was one of the leaders, with Benjamin Dale , Frank Bridge , and others, of the British renaissance.

: A. J. ALAN 'Henry'

tonight A. J. Alan is to intrigue listeners again, not only with a story (which he is a first-rate hand at telling), but with that elusive problem of his identity. In these days of high-tension publicity when everything is known about everyone and nothing is new, it seems incredible that this story-teller has been able to conceal his identity so long. It is an incomparable advertisement.
He will broadcast this story again in the Regional Programme on Friday night.

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.

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.
