HERBERT THORPE (tenor)
Elgar's Op. 27 is a suite for choir and orchestra, called ' From the Bavarian Highlands ', an echo of the composer's travels in that part of the world. Three numbers of the suite are for orchestra alone, and these are often played separately in the form of a suite. Perhaps the most charming of the three dances is ' In Hammersbach ', which was once very popular with cinema orchestras and is often to be heard as a violin solo.

THE DOROTHY HOGBEN TRIO:

(pianoforte)
GWLADYS GARSIDE (contralto)
Michael William Balfe (1808-70), composer of The Bohemian Girl and innumerable other operas, appears to have written only three instrumental works : a Sonata for 'cello and piano, a Piano Trio, and a Flute Concerto. The Sonata and Trio were begun in 1866 and completed a few years later.
The Piano Trio was first performed in 1877 by Marie Krebs , Joachim, and Piatti. It is a graceful melodious work, with an Irish flavoured scherzo, written in classical style. J. W. Davison , the celebrated critic of The Times, and Balfe's contemporary, wrote : ' Had Balfe lived longer, he might, with facility and advantage, have devoted more leisure to this form of composition. His early studies led him to it, and in the midst of his successful career as a writer of operas his thoughts must have often wandered back in that direction. His trio and sonata are proofs of it ... In his youth Balfe was an excellent performer on the violin. He also played the violoncello, and, it need scarcely be added, the pianoforte. Why, then, familiar as he was with each instrument, should he not have written a trio for piano, violin, and violoncello ?'

: 'Through the Looking Glass'

With the exception of Shakespeare and Dickens, no writer has enriched everyday English thought and everyday English speech with a wider range of Jiving, universally known characters than Lewis Carroll. Alice herself, the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, the Dormouse, the Cheshire Cat, the White Knight-all these are as familiar to us as Falstaff and Pickwick themselves.
There may be greater lyric poems than ' The Walrus and the Carpenter ' in the English language, but, as Tweedledum himself pointed out, it is one of the longest, and it is certainly one of the most often quoted. It will be included in this radio version of ' Through the Looking-Glass ', along with ' Father William ' and ' Jabberwocky '. And, of course, you will meet again all the famous characters in this nursery classic. This is the second revival of Cecil Lewis 's faithful adaptation.
This play was broadcast in the Regional programme last night

: THE CEREMONY OF THE KEYS

carried out by the Chief Warder in conjunction with the 3rd Bn.
Coldstream Guards
The Ceremony opens with the Chief Warder meeting his escort at the Bloody Tower. The Chief Warder and Escort then proceed to the Visitors' Entrance gate on Tower Hill, the sentries en route presenting arms. The Visitors' Entrance gate is locked, and they then return through the Middle and Byward Tower, locking each in turn. On reaching the Bloody Tower, they are challenged, and then proceed to the Main Guard. The Main Guard salutes the Keys by presenting arms, and the Chief Warder, raising his hat, calls out' God Preserve King George '. Ten o'clock sounds from the Tower Clock, and the relay finishes with the sounding of the Last Post.

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.
