THE STRATTON STRING
QUARTET:
GEORGE STRATTON (violin); CARL TAYLOR (violin) ; WATSON FORBES
(viola); JOHN MOORE (violoncello)
JOHN ARMSTRONG (tenor)
Dittersdorf was one of Haydn's friendly rivals, and the intimate association between the two composers left its mark on the former, who learnt a great dell from his distinguished contemporary.
All musicians agree that the, lovely old Irish tune known as The Londonderry Air is one of the most perfect melodies ever imagined.
Technically, it passes every test-it is faultlessly constructed ; emotionally, it moves the listener as few other tunes can...
It is no wonder, then, that so many modern composers have made use of this melody, either by arranging and harmonising it as it stands, or by using it as a base: for a more elaborate composition. This is what Frank Bridge has done in this quartet, which is, like so many others of its kind, an original work based on a melody borrowed from the past.
This is the first of Arnold Bax's quartets. It was composed in 1918 and dedicated to Sir Edward Elgar. Both in construction and material it is a simple and straightforward work, and is possibly destined to be the most popular of Bax's quartets. There is a theme in the last of the three movements which might almost be an Irish folk-song. Actually, however, it is an original melody.

: The Week's Good Cause

An Appeal on behalf of THE MARY MACARTHUR HOLIDAY HOME FOR WORKING WOMEN, by the Most Hon. THE MARCHIONESS OF CREWE, C.I.
The Mary Macarthur Holiday Home, at Ongar, in Essex, was founded as a memorial to Mary Macarthur , the -great leader of working women, who died in 1921. It exists to provide country holidays for working women and girls who could not otherwise afford them, and it has met such a great need that efforts are now being made to raise an Extension Fund to enlarge the Home. ' The Gables ' was opened in 1922 by the Queen, who knew and valued Mary Macarthur 's work, and Her Majesty has shown her continued interest by graciously consenting to pay it another visit, to receive purses in aid of the extensions made necessary by the success of the Home.
Holidays are just beginning, but many are unable to afford them after a long period of industrial depression. The Mary Macarthur Holiday Home is easily accessible for those who live and work in crowded industrial districts with few facilities for outdoor amusements or week-ends in the country, amd any woman wanting a holiday need only write to [address removed] Unfortunately, accommodation is limited, and contributions to the Extension Fund will make the Home available for a larger number of women.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [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.
