(Section C)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by Sir GRANVILLE BANTOCK
Hamish MacCunn , the richly gifted Scotsman whose untimely death was so heavy a loss to British music, was little more than twenty when this stirring piece appeared. Instinct with all that is most picturesque and vivid in the national idiom, it won an immediate success and has ever since been popular. The tale on which it is based is common to the folk-lore of many lands. In Scott's version, which was MacCunn's inspiration, the Daemon Lover carried off a fair lady from her husband and two bonnie babes, on his ship whose ' masts were of the beaten gold '. But very soon she spied his cloven foot, and watched with horror as he grew to monstrous height. The music presents the whole impression of the ballad, rather than illustrating the course of the grim tale.
Prelude and Courante (Ravenswood)
Mackenzie
Alia marcia (The Tale of Tsar Saltan)
Rimsky-Korsakov
Suite, Swanwhite ........ Sibelius i. The Peacock; 2. The Maiden with the Roses; 3. Listen, the Robin sings ; 4. The Prince alone ; 5 Swanwhite and the Prince
The ' Swanwhite' suite consists of the incidental music to a charming fairy play of Strindberg, the Scandinavian dramatist, who was not as a rule given to charm. In this case, however, he got his material from the folk ballads of his country and not from his own somewhat gloomy conception of life. Sibelius has played up to the spirit of the story, and his music is full of grace and delicacy. The whole suite consists of seven pieces, only five of which are being played here.

: 'Armada '

A Dramatic Narrative compiled from the records by C. WHITAKER-WILSON and HOWARD
ROSE
Speakers :
The Production by HOWARD Rose
The type of programme in which documentary facts are made to glow with life by means of the human voice and dramatic continuity has been exemplified in such programmes as Twenty Years Ago, Gordon of Khartoum, and South Sea Bubble. Now, in the same genre, comes Armada. The events of those eleven days in which the ships of England discovered their full power and made it secure are re-told in . swift and vivid—almost breathless-narrative. They were ; stirring, heroic days. They were fateful days in English history, too, and it is all to the good that the wide audience served by broadcasting should be aware of the facts-especially when they are presented in such an acceptable form as this kind of radio entertain- ' ment can provide. For the facts are all authenticated from original documents ; and though the most important people in the' cast of Armada are the three narrators, the impersonation of such historical characters as Philip II, Howard, Drake, and Hawkins, speaking the actual words they spoke in 1588, ] will lend colour and interest.
This rejuvenation of history in tfie ( form of chronicle plays, ' famous trials ', and so forth, is a form of art peculiar to the microphone, and a most successful one. C. Whitaker-Wilson , part-author with Howard Rose , has already shown himself to be an adroit showman of history in his play Sir Christopher Wren and in his version of the ' famous trials ' of Lord Lovat and Dame Alice Lisle.
A brief diary of the Armada itself, together with contemporary charts, will be found on page 6.

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.
