(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by LESLIE WOODGATE
NORA GRUHN (soprano)
The old song ' Drink to me only with thine eyes ', the music of which has been acknowledged to be by Dr. Harington of Bath, has been the subject of conflicting opinions in The RADIO TIMES. A recent article spoke of it in terms of praise, very naturally since it has weathered 200 years of use, but some correspondents have declared that the music is hymn-like and practically worthless, while even Ben Jonson 's words have come in for adverse but rather belated criticism. Roger Quilter , who has here harmonised Harington's melody, obviously thinks well of the song, or he would not have touched it. Listeners must therefore judge for themselves. Nora Gruhn who sings it here gives them the opportunity.
King George I was very fond of masquerades on the Thames which, as a popular amusement of those days, were usually organised on a subscription basis. On one occasion he expressed a wish that a concert on the Thames might be planned on similar lines. Baron Kilmanseck, Master of the King's Horse, agreed to put up the money and Handel was commissioned to write the music. The concert was a great success, the river was crowded with barges, and afterwards there was a grand supper at Lord Ranelagh's house at Chelsea. George I was so pleased with the music that he commanded it to be repeated after the supper.

: A. J. INSALL: 'Growing Wings in 1915'

This talk is a sequel to Mr. Filson Young 's entertaining and instructive series ' Growing Wings ', in which he told listeners of his experiences while learning to fly, but, unlike most sequels, it goes back nineteen years, and is to describe the even greater adventure of learning to fly in war-time. Aircraft in 1915 were often very rickety affairs, and the temper of war-time instructors added to the difficulties. Mr. Insall's experiences offer an amusing contrast to conditions today.

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.

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.

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.
