THE BIRMINGHAM PHILHARMONIC
STRING ORCHESTRA
Leader, Norris Stanley
Conductor, JOHAN HOCK
DOROTHY HEMMING (violin) MARJORIE ASTBURY (violin)
This fugue, known as the ' giant' because of an unusual, heavy-footed rhythm written for the pedals, has for its subject the first line of a Lutheran choral, We believe in one God, the Creator '. Written for organ, it is here arranged for a string orchestra.
DOROTHY HEMMING
The first and third movements of Bach's Double Concerto are similar in style and design7 with the slow movement between forming something in the nature of an interlude. Scored for two solo violins and strings only, the music is necessarily limited in tone-colour, but Bach contrives to vary the shade of tone in the most interesting way, and there is never a thought of monotony from beginning to end.
The second solo violin and the second violins of the orchestra begin the first movement at once with a merry hurrying tune which is really the main basis of the movement. The first violins, so'o and orchestra), take it up at an interval of four bars, and throughout the movement it will be heard now on one, now on another, sometimes for a moment on all the strings at once.
The slow movement is an expressive melodious duet for the two soloists, with only slight accompaniment from the main body of the strings. Again it is the second violin that begins, to be followed with an imitation of the same tune two bars later, by the first violin.
All but the two solo violins and the bass begin the last movement together, but again with comparatively slight accompaniment, the greater part of the movement is a duet for the two solo instruments.

: THE LONDON ZIGEUNER ORCHESTRA

Directed by Ernest Leggett
Every member of this celebrated orchestra is a leading orchestral player, and every one is British. Yet under Ernest Leggett 's direction they have assimilated the gypsy style of playing so perfectly that no one can tell them from a gypsy band. They have been broadcasting regularly since March,
1932.
Leggett has recently received a number of letters in appreciation of the inclusion in his programmes of several works by British composers. They are of necessity specially arranged for the London Zigeuner Orchestra, but the actual melodies compare most favourably, Leggett affirms, with any Continental work of similar idiom. Tangos and ballads are the type of composition he usually receives. In the near future he hopes to broadcast one or two programmes made up entirely of British compositions in both gypsy and 'straight' melodious styles.

: 'Hassan'

The Story of Hassan of Bagdad and how he came to make the Golden
Journey to Samarkand by JAMES ELROY FLECKER
Adapted for broadcasting by DULCIMA GLASBY
Characters :
Dancing Women, Beggars, Soldiers, Police, Pilgrims, Merchants, Attendants and Casual Loiterers
THE B B C CHORUS (Section B) and the B B C THEATRE ORCHESTRA
Conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON
The Play produced by VAL GIELGUD
This poetic drama by James Elroy Flecker, who never lived to see it produced, was broadcast in an abridged version in 1925 and 1926, and again in February, 1933, when the first part was given one evening and the second part the next. This week the whole radio version is being done in one performance.
As in the 1933 production, the cast is a brilliant one. Henry Ainley is again to broadcast the part of Hassan, which he created in the original production at His Majesty's Theatre, London, in 1923. Others who repeat their original stage parts tonight are Leon Quarter maine and Malcolm Keen. Ion Swin ley, as Rafi, plays the same part as he did in the last broadcast production .
Meet Hassan. Hassan, neither young nor beautiful, and fat besides, betrayed by Yasmin whom he loves, and by Sehm his friend : Hassan in incredible adventures : Hassan a favourite of the Court of the Caliph of Bagdad: Hassan having Yasmin at his mercy in the end and flinging away the sword he has drawn to kill her. Hassan no more than confectioner, an old man, and a fool.
'Hassan' was broadcast in the Regional programme last night. See article and pictures on pages 7 and 13.

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.
