Sir George Henschel (baritone), accompanying himself at the pianoforte : Der Leiermann (The Organ-Grinder) ; Das Wandern (A Wandering)
Wilhelm Backhaus : Moment Musical in F minor; Impromptu in B flat, Op. 142, No. 3
A better trio of artists to sing some of Schubert's Lieder and to play his shorter pianoforte pieces could scarcely have been found. Elisabeth Schumann has for years delighted London with one or more of her recital evenings during the season, and always Schubert is represented in her programmes.
The late Sir George Henschel was one of the finest Lieder singers of his age ; while Backhaus, one of London's favourite virtuosi, never fails to enrapture a British audience.

: ' Question Time on Tower Hill '-5

By the Rev. D. 0. SOPER, Ph.D.
Every Wednesday for seven-and-a-half years, winter and summer, in wind or rain, Dr. Soper has stood for an hour-and-a-half on the cobbled roof of a warehouse answering questions put to him by anyone who happens to be there.
The Tower, the plot of ground where people were once executed, and the church of All Hallows, to which the severed bodies were borne-here is a historic setting: Heavy lorries thunder past the warehouse, and in the lunch hour clerks and typists, dockhands and the unemployed come along, bringing their perplexities arising' out of modem life.
You need a big voice to make yourself heard above competitive meetings, and the roar of the traffic, but Dr. Soper's one boast is that he can make himself heard at Mark Lane Station.
Tonight he is to tell listeners some more of his experiences, and to give them some typical questions and answers that are exchanged on Tower Hill.

: Chamber Music

THE INTERNATIONAL
STRING QUARTET:
Andre Mangeot (violin) ; Walter Price (violin) ; Eric Bray (viola) ; Jack Shine-bourne
(violoncello)
PARRY JONES (tenor) Ernest John Moeran began to compose already during his schooldays at Uppingham, where music has always been enthusiastically cultivated. As . with many others of the younger generation of English composers, his original work goes hand-in-hand with an enthusiasm for native folk music ; that of Norfolk, where a good part of his life has been spent, has always attracted him specially, as listeners have already had opportunities of hearing for themselves in his ' Norfolk Rhapsodies' and other works
He has himself collected a number of Norfolk folk tunes for the 'Folk Song Society, and it the themes in this String Quartet are hot in themselves actual melodies of the land, they have something of the direct simplicity and something of the real expressive-ness of folk song.

: 'All in the Day's Work'-5

'A District Court in Malaya'
L. D. GAMMANS
Probably more than any man a magistrate sees the vicissitudes and failings of human beings, and human life in infinite variety. Henry Fielding was well acquainted with police courts before he became J.P. for Westminster and wrote ' Tom Jones '. In more recent times the late J. A. R. Cairns turned to good account his long experiences at Thames Police Court in his two very human books ' The Loom of the Law ' and ' The Sidelights of London'.
But though he had natives of the Orient through his hands, most of them spoke English. Tonight we are to hear about a district court in Malaya, where Malays, Chinese, Sikhs, Pathans may come up before the magistrate one after another, each requiring an interpreter. Mr. Gammans is to describe from his own experience the life and colour of one of these courts, and the atmosphere and heat of its tropical setting.

: THE HASTINGS MUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA

Conductor, JULIUS HARRISON
ELENA DANIELI (soprano)
Relayed from
The White Rock Pavilion, Hastings Count Almaviva, who with the help of Figaro, the barber, is doing his best by means of varying disguises to get near enough to Rosina to tell her how ardent is his passion, has been serenading her. She, equally anxious to have Almaviva at her feet, though foiled at every stage of this frustrated courtship, has been listening to Almaviva's singing with rapture, and now sings this florid, but lighthearted aria. Apart from the opera, it is one of the coloratura show-pieces of the concert platform.

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.
