: International Cafe

written, devised and compered by Eddie Pola with The Three Admirals (America), Jack Doyle (Ireland), John Hendrik (Germany), Lucyenne Herval (France), Leon Hochloff (Russia), Satne and Ermine Meduria (Spain), Rudolfo Mele (Italy), Lola Shari (Hungary), Elsie Sterndale (Lancashire), and Geraldo and his Tango Orchestra.
This is the first production on the air by Eddie Pola since America Calling and America Calling Again, his successful burlesques of transatlantic radio, variety, and film stars which were broadcast in July and November last year. Tonight he comes to the microphone as Walter Wildflower, who runs the International Café and introduces the turns.
Popular and well-known representatives of different countries have been gathered together for this production, which introduces Jack Doyle, the Irish boxer and tenor singer, to the air.
With Lola Shari, the Hungarian soprano, John Hendrik, the German tenor, Leon Hochloff, the Russian bass, it is a magnificent cast. Then Lucyenne Herval, the French diseuse, is in it, and Elsie Sterndale from our own Lancashire, and that popular American act The Three Admirals, to say nothing of Geraldo and his Tango Orchestra.
The Meduria Sisters sing, to their own guitar accompaniment, folk songs they themselves have collected from all parts of Spain and Morocco. They sent the title of one in Arabic when forwarding the billing, and Broadcasting House was searched in vain for a typewriter that would type Arabic.
International Café was broadcast in the Regional programme on Wednesday night.

: A Symphony Concert

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section C)
(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conductor, ADRIAN BOULT
JEAN POUGNET (violin)
Dr. William Boyce, in turn composer to the Chapel Royal, conductor of the Three Choirs Festival, and Master of the King's Musick, was born in London in 1710. In his day he was one of the foremost English composers, writing music for the Church, stage pieces, and masques. The eight symphonies which have come down to us have been recently edited by Constant Lambert .
In a crisp phrase the Editor of Grove's ' Dictionary of Music ' describes the Concerto Accademico as ' a thoroughly un-academic work for violin and orchestra '. What, therefore, is implied by the word accademico is probably the fact that violin and orchestra converse throughout on equal terms, and that neither is overbearingly a talker, nor meekly a listener. Like all such courteous conversations, it gives great pleasure in the hearing. It was first performed in November, 1925, and played by Jelly d'Aranyi.
It is very pleasant to hear a Schubert symphony that is very rarely played. This one dates 'from 1818, when Schubert was twenty-one. It was first performed as an act of commemoration, at a concert given a month after his death. There is a richness and freedom in the work that shows the composer's powers are ripening and his technical grasp is more assured than in the other five works he had written in this form. The Unfinished, of course, and the great C Major, were yet to come.
There are four movements, the first being preceded by a slow introduction. Note the very happy start given to both the main tunes of this movement by the woodwind.
The second movement is one of Schubert's lovely, heart-easing Andantes.
The third movement is not the old
Minuet, but a Scherzo, brilliant and piquant in its tiptoe delight.
The last movement sums up the rhythmical joys of the work, keeping up an exhilarating flow of light and power without flagging.

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.
