A Broadcasting Revue for
Motorists
Written by L. DU GARDE PEACH
Music and Additional Numbers by ERNEST LONGSTAFFE
The thousands of listeners who remember the happy Du Garde Peach/Ernest Longstaffe combination in the original Our Town, which was revived so successfully early this year, will look forward to the sparking and sparkling of their motor revue tonight. It is an entertainment for motorists, whether of seven or seventy horse-power. Traffic lights, gongs, burst tyres-all the humours of the road. And the song of the road will be constantly heard through merriment and satire.
Du Garde Peach is at his best and wittiest ; Longstaffe has been re-scoring the show for full orchestra during sleepless nights ; ' Effects ' will use all their gadgets-tanks, gravel-boxes, big drums.
The cast includes artists straight from Stop Press which has just finished its tun at the Adelphi. Vivienne Chatterton , famous as Mrs. Pewter; John Rorke , never absent from one's thoughts of ' Old Music-Halls ' ; Dick Francis , who was Mr. Blue Beard in Blue Beard with Leonard Henry , and who was in Entre Nous with Ivy St. Helier, and in Breakfast in Evening Dress. This popular comedian, who is going into Tulip Time at the Alhambra, is to play the parts of many motorists tonight.
This revue will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow night

: THE WALFORD HYDEN MAGYAR ORCHESTRA

Walford Hyden hails from the Potteries. He studied with Matthay and Corder at the Royal Academy of Music. Then toured Europe, America, and the Colonies. For many years Walford Hyden was musical director for Pavlova, and after her death wrote a book on her. He conducted the Russian opera and ballet at the Lyceum Theatre in 1932 and also ' Waltzes from Vienna' at the Alhambra Theatre. Among numerous of his compositions that have been broadcast are : ' Round the Town ', ' The Chink and the Child ', and two light operettes-' Flower of a Thousand Nights ' and ' The Legend of Silence '.
Glinka wrote the orchestral piece Kamarinskaya on two folk-songs (a bridal song, and a snatch of gypsy dance-melody from which the composition takes its name) in 1848 for the Governor of Warsaw's private orchestra. Glinka was the least self-conscious of geniuses (or almost geniuses). In composing Kamarinskaya he had no aim deeper than the killing of boredom during an empty winter ; actually, he was laying the foundation stone of Russian symphonic music. ' Kamarinskaya is astonishingly original', wrote Tchaikovsky. ' From it all the Russian composers who have followed Glinka (including myself) continue to this day to borrow contrapuntal and harmonic combinations directly they have to develop a Russian dance tune. Glinka managed to concentrate in one short work what a dozen second-rate talents would have invented only with the whole expenditure of their powers '.

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.
