Balfour Gardiner has always been intensively active in the interests of his British contemporaries, and has given notable concerts with that end in view. He has not, himself, written a great deal, but several of his works, among them ' Shepherd Fennel's Dance ', became instantly popular, and have rightly remained so. Shepherd Fennel is a character in Thomas Hardy 's ' Wessex Tales', and the music is based upon an episode therein.
(Belfast Programme)
Brahms's Hungarian Dances must be well known to countless listeners who have very little interest in the rest of his work. He was not a Hungarian himself, but the verve and rhythm of Hungarian dances and folk songs interested him keenly all his musical life. And he made use of them in many ways in his own works. It is supposed that his interest in them was first aroused when, as a young man, he went on tour with the Hungarian violinist, Remenyi, and that may well be true. Remenyi was himself an enthusiast in the folk music of his own country, an,; played many of the native airs, so that Brahms heard them in all their native vigour and charm.

: THE 'AIR-DO-WELLS '

A Summer Entertainment with:
EVE BECKE
JEAN COLIN
JACK CLEWES
GERALD NODIN
CLAUDE GARDNER
EFFIE ATHERTON
LESLIE BRIAN
THE THREE RHYTHM ACES
THE ORCHESTRA, under the direction of KNEALE KELLEY
Devised and produced by MAX KESTER and BRYAN MICHIE

Tonight comes the first broadcast of the B.B.C.'s first 'busking gang'. The whole thing is to take on the atmosphere of any concert party so familiar on any pier-head. And Claud Gardner, well-known to Variety audiences, will be responsible for the main part of the humour, and will link the show together in the breezy manner of seaside pierrots. There will be ensembles and sketches by various authors; new numbers by Ray Noble and Max Kester, and also by Ronald Hill, who will be the 'Air-Do-Wells" pianist.
In the cast will be Eve Becke, a popular dance-band vocalist, who was in Variety the other week; Jean Colin, the leading lady soubrette, who made a hit in one of the Ridgeway Parades; Effie Atherton, that clever comedienne who has broadcast with Ambrose and his Band; and the Three Rhythm Aces, a very successful cabaret trio.
There will be two newcomers to the air, Jack Clewes, a popular musical comedy juvenile, and Leslie Brian, who was discovered by Max Kester at Eastbourne. Brian is a young Scots crooner who can sing top A quite comfortably. He can also put over a waltz with as much feeling as anybody.

: FILSON YOUNG : 'Growing Wings'

Last week Filson Young described his first lesson. How different was his experience from the rosy anticipation of his opening talk a fortnight ago ! Then, in his enthusiasm, all was as simple as the flight of a bird. But he went up with his instructor and was quickly disillusioned. He came to the microphone last Thursday a humbled man.
But that is exactly the mood of the man who succeeds. Tonight he is to tell you that, difficult and confusing as it still seems, he is beginning to see daylight. Technical things are becoming simplified in his brain. He knows just the purpose of the 'stick', what it means to 'stall'; he is getting used to the roar of the engines, and quite familiar with the sight of ground flying back under him.
If something goes wrong, there is his instructor to put him right. But when he first flies solo-well, that is another matter and one, he thanks goodness, he hasn't to tackle yet.

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.

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.
