: Children's Jubilee Celebration

At the ROYAL ALBERT HALL
Arranged by the London Schools
Music Association
About fifteen years ago it was decided to form an organisation that would supplement the valuable work of the competitive Festival movement. This organisation, now known as the London Schools Music Association, is based on the idea of co-operation rather than competition. Its first purpose was to arrange for affiliated schools to rehearse a set programme of songs, which should first be taught by the teachers to their singing classes, and then performed publicly under the direction of a district conductor at a Festival concert, each school sending its own representative singers. This new departure in school music proved highly successful and the idea was developed to cover practically every form of musical expression-pipe and percussion bands, string and full orchestras, military bands and folk dancing.
A good idea of the quality and quantity of the work that is now being carried on by the London Schools Music Association will be seen at the Children's Jubilee Festival, taking place at the Royal Albert Hall this afternoon. The choir consists of 1,600 voices, there is an orchestra of 200 players and a brass band. In addition, folk dancing, classical dancing and new eurhythmics will be carried out by 200 children. All the performers taking part are drawn from schools maintained by the L.C.C.

' Personality in League Football'
BRENT WOOD
For sixteen years Brent Wood has been watching first-class football. Hundreds of matches, each clear as a picture at the time, but one very much like another in retrospect. And yet one game here, another there, is singled out in his memory because of the personality of some player.
Nobody can say just what personality is. The man who possesses it is somehow different from all his fellow men. He compels attention. And at football, just as he himself is different, so is his game. Nobody who watched the last Cup Final is ever likely to forget Ronald Starling.
In common with several great football personalities Brent Wood is going to discuss, Starling seems to make the ball come to him and raises the game to greatness, as ' Manchester United' Frank Barson and ' Huddersfield ' Sam Wadsworth did. Wood will discuss this incredible gift of anticipation ; Charlie' Buchan's 'combined wizardry of mind and feet,' Sheffield Wednesday' Walker's brains, ' Liverpool '
Elisha Scott 's gift for saving penalties, ' Huddersfield ' Smith's genius for being there at the right moment, and the pace of Hulme the ' Highbury Express '.
Brent Wood is a well-known broadcaster in the North, ' Odysseus ' of the Children's Hour, and Honorary Presi dent of various Northern branches of the Rhythm Club.

(Section C)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by CLARENCE RAYBOULD The origin of the waltz is uncertain, though weight of evidence points to the Landler, a German country-dance, the rhythm of which has a great deal in common with the waltz. Anyway, the waltz made its first appearance round about 1780. Five years later, it had become so popular in Bohemia that it was forbidden as immoral. Vienna then adopted it, made it her own. Germany and France followed.
By 1812, the bright young things of England were swaying to its lilt, while the dull old things-much in the manner of 1935-were calling it a 'disgusting practice ' and a ' fiend of German birth'. Even Byron, forgetting to be romantic, attacked it in verse of uncertain worth. In 1825, a brilliant school of Viennese waltz composers began with Joseph Lanner (1801-1843) and Johann Strauss (1804-1842).
Johann Strau3s wrote a hundred and fifty waltzes, chiefly for his own band, which he made famous throughout Europe. His eldest son, also called Johann, became known as ' The Waltz King ' and composed over four hundred waltzes, including the famous ' Blue Danube'. He became the idol of Europe and it is safe to say that no other composer of dance music secured so much appreciation from fellow composers-Wagner and Brahms being two of his greatest admirers. Even the austere Busoni was inspired to write a set of waltzes, ' Tanzwalzer ', included in the present programme, by an accidental hearing of one of Strauss' waltzes at the door of a oafe.
Almost as famous as Johann Strauss the younger, were his two younger brothers, Joseph Strauss and Eduard Strauss. Joseph was a builder by trade, but eventually became assistant conductor of Johann's orchestra. His waltz ' Music of the Spheres ' to be heard this evening was one of his best and most popular compositions.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
