: A Pianoforte Recital

Ⓓ by YORK BOWEN
A native of London, York Bowen enrolled at the Royal Academy of Music at the age of only fourteen as a student of composition and pianoforte, winning distinction in both. Long ago recognised as a pianist of brilliant attainments, he is also a composer of quite original gifts. His own instrument has naturally been generously treated with three concertos and many smaller pieces, but he has done notable work for the orchestra, too. He has been a piano and composition professor at the Royal Academy for many years.

ANNE DUTHIE (soprano)
According to an old legend, the spirits of the men of the Irish Brigade who were killed on the field of Fontenoy took the form of wild geese when darkness fell, and flew home to Ireland. That is the theme which Sir Hamilton Harty has set forth in this picturesque orchestral piece, making use of Irish idioms, if not actual Irish tunes.
There is a slow and rather plaintive
Introduction, and then two brisk Irish tunes played by flutes. A quiet tune on the oboe comes next, with a martial strain in the accompaniment, although the mutter of coming battle can still be heard. !
A call on trumpets brings in the Irish tunes once more, now in a more stirring vein, and the tone poem comes to an end with a theme which depicts the flight of the wild geese after the battle.
Representative English musician though he was, the late Sir Charles Stanford ! was at heart a real Irishman, and was never happier than when dealing with the folk music of his own country. In the Irish Rhapsodies he has given us much that is eloquent of the real spirit of Ireland, embodying in most of them something of the old legends, as well as the old music. The great popularity of No. 1 and in a lesser degree No. 4 has reacted rather unfavourably on the others, which are much less often heard. This fifth one will be recognised as in every way as . full of the poetry and mystery of the old Celtic days as anything in the realm of present-day music. ;

by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
Diana Wynyard , equally well-known in the English and American theatre, won world-wide fame as Jane Marryot in the film of Cavalcade. Today, as Hermione, she is to give her first broadcast.
That fine character-actor,
H. R. Hignett , made his first professional appearance in Shakespeare over forty years ago. Some of the parts he has played occupy more than three close columns in ' Who's Who in the Theatre '.
Another to make his debut over the air is Laurence Olivier , who is appearing in Theatre Royal at the Lyric. He played Shakespearean parts at the Shakespeare Festival Theatre at Stratford-on-Avon as a child.
Gladys Young 's broadcast of Paulina will be listened to with interest by her legion of admirers. She is featured in ' People You Hear ' on page 14.

: The Week's Good Cause

An Appeal on behalf of MANOR HOUSE HOSPITAL (INDUSTRIAL ORTHOPAEDIC SOCIETY), by the Rt. Hon. GEORGE LANSBURY , M.P.
This hospital was established in 1917 for the treatment of wounded soldiers and pensioners. As the need for this service grew less urgent, injured and disabled workmen were admitted in increasing numbers and the relief of such cases, the casualties of industry, is now the principal task to which the hospital is devoting its resources.
To provide the necessary funds an appeal was made to the workmen themselves in all parts of the country. They responded in great number and were enrolled (on the basis of a payment of one penny weekly) as members of the Industrial Orthopaedic Society, which governs the hospital. The Society has now nearly 200,000 members, drawn from nearlv every trade and from nearly every district in Britain.
These men out of their weekly earnings have contributed for the past six or seven years about £50,000 annually for the maintenance of the hospital, most of which is still housed in temporary wards. They have also erected with the help of a few generous friends the first section of the permanent hospital, a substantial and well-equipped building which the Duke of York opened in October, 1931. But the workers are handicapped bv their small means. The Industrial" Orthopaedic Society is appealing for donations because this hospital represents a real effort of working men to help 'one another, and has no endowments and no grants from public funds.
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.

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.
