Excerpts from new Publications on a given Theme
New books, and good ones at that, come pouring from the press in such a spate that it is impossible for reviewers to keep pace with them. It is obvious that very few can be dealt with in the times available for broadcast talks on New Books. Partly with an idea of making up for this deficiency to some extent, and partly because the public wants to know what the books are like-not only what they are about and what can be said for or against them-it has been decided to broadcast excerpts from a number of new books on Sunday evenings.
These excerpts will not be taken haphazard, but will be linked together in theme or 'motif', whether they are taken from fiction, biography, science, history, or any other literary form. The link between excerpts will be of the slightest—the quotations will speak for themselves.

ALEXANDRA TRIANTI
(soprano)
FRANZ OSBORN
(pianoforte) Chopin did not invent the Nocturne.
The composer who did was John Field, who, in his youth, was a pupil of Clementi. An Irishman who spent much of his time in Russia, Field is always supposed to have Chopin considerably in his debt. He was certainly the originator of that type of music which Chopin developed with genius and made practically his own.

: The Week's Good Cause

An Appeal on behalf of The Anti-Noise League, by Lord Horder, K.C.V.O., M.D.
The first measures advocated by the Anti-Noise League have already been adopted. Following their deputation to the Minister of Transport, the use of the motor horn has been prohibited in built-up areas between the hours of 11.30 p.m. and 7 a.m., and the League's amendment to the Road Traffic Act (1934) was adopted, making it necessary for motor vehicles to be properly silenced before .being offered for sale.
Almost simultaneously with the adoption of these legislative enactments, the Home Secretary's approval was secured for a new Model By-law whereby it is possible to control the use of wireless loudspeakers and gramophones in private dwellings as well as in shops and business premises.
But the League's work is not confined to the promotion of laws and regulations. A widespread campaign, conducted with the help of the Press and other organs of public opinion, has succeeded in making the subject a live one.
Noise is the modern problem of all sections of the community. This evening Lord Horder, Chairman of the League, is to broadcast an appeal for assistance in the campaign against needless noise.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]

: LESLIE JEFFRIES and THE GRAND HOTEL, EASTBOURNE, ORCHESTRA LEONARD GOWINGS (tenor)

Relayed from
The Grand Hotel, Eastbourne
When Leslie Jeffries took over this celebrated orchestra he determined, if possible, to enhance its reputation, and, to judge from the congratulatory letters from listeners, his policy to give the public what they want and to cater for all tastes has admirably succeeded. Varied programmes, tuneful music, bright Sunday nights.
Of the violin solos he has selected to play this evening, the slow 'melody in ' Zigeunerweisen ' (Gipsy Airs), by Sarasate, has become so popular that an English music publisher adapted it as a waltz that is now well known under the title of ' Gypsy Moon ', much in the same way as ' Poem ' by Fibich was adapted.
The Concerto in E minor, although composed in 1844, is still a great favourite on the concert platform, with players and public alike. It has all the facility and grace and polish of Mendelssohn, whilst ' Liebesfreud ' (Love's Joy), by Kreisler, is considered one of his most popular compositions. At the pianoforte, SYDNEY FFOULKES

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.
