: THE BBC MILITARY BAND

Conductor,
B. WALTON O'DONNELL
PEGGY COCHRANE (violin)
The story goes that Schubert, after rearing Rossini's operas, wrote his ' Overture in the Italian Style ' to show how easily that sort of music could be turned out. There is in the work (and in a companion Overture that he produced about the same time) a good deal of Rossini's eloquence and harmonic economy, and his trick of working up a climax 'by repeating a little phrase of a few bars.
Near the end there is a hint of a greater master-Mozart, and just a glimpse of Schubert's own face.
André Messager was born in 1853, studied at the Ecole Niedermayer in Paris, and later became the pupil of Saint-Saens. He began writing opera comique and then came to England and wrote a number of light operas that were extremely successful.
The Suite The Two Pigeons is a Ballet in six movements. The first is a March, energetic and with a hint of Hungarian rhythm ; the second is the dance of the two pigeons, dignified and capricious by turns ; the third is a theme with three variations. The fourth a sort of interlude, sprightly and full of interest; the fifth a Hungarian dance, and the last is in a very quick march rhythm.

: 'The Mulberry Bush'

A Social Comedy
Specially written for broadcasting by E. M. DELAFIELD
The famous author of ' The Diary of a Provincial Lady ' made her debut as a radio playwright with this play, first broadcast in August, 1933. It is a social comedy, and a satire. A lively story, depicting human beings who talk naturally, and often wittily ; who, individual and different in temperament and circumstances as they may be, go round and round-like squirrels in a cage. The artist, who has complained all his married life that his marriage has been a handicap and a bondage, refuses his freedom when it is offered him. The schoolmaster, who has pined to be released from the drudgery of schoolmastering, shirks at changing his security for insecurity. The woman whose own marriage has been a failure persists in going on believing that marriage is better than anything else.
' Do we live and learn ? Or do we go round in a circle, and never recognise that we're treading in the same old tracks every time ? '
' The Mulberry Bush ' will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow night

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.
