All this cycling-a talk by a Club
Cyclist
HAROLD BRIERCLIFF
They are almost inescapable in England. On arterial roads and country lanes, in towns and villages, on moors, on downland, on mountain passes even, cycling clubs can be seen on the move. Chins well over handlebars, legs working like pistons, to the layman they seem to be achieving the maximum of speed with the minimum of comfort. This evening, however, H. Briercliff comes to the microphone to explain to the uninitiated that the whole business of long-distance cycling is not such a grim affair as it looks.
Although only twenty-five, Briercliff has had eleven years' experience of club touring. He has pedalled far enough afield to make even a seasoned motorist envious; not content with Britain and Ireland, he has also ventured along the roads of Germany, France, Holland, and Switzerland. He thinks little of travelling a hundred miles in one day.

The plot of Falla's short opera La Vida Breve (Life is Short) is so slight as to be scarcely more than an incident. Yet musically and in length it belongs to the same genre as Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci. Falud, a Spanish gypsy girl, has been thrown over by her lover, Paco, through his marrying another. She bursts into the courtyard where the wedding guests are dancing and falls dead at her faithless lover's feet.
La Vida Breve was written when
Falla was still in Spain, a young man under thirty, and he took the score with him to Paris as an introduction to musical circles there. Yet it was not performed till some eight years after that. It was given first at Nice in 1913, then in Paris, and a year after, in Madrid.
Our own knowledge of Falla dates from after the War, and we have yet to hear this opera on the London stage.
In the brilliant and effective music which Sarasate left for the instrument he played so well himself he often made use of actual tunes from his native Spain, lending them a brilliance which, added to their own vivid and rhythmic qualities, make very effective pieces of them.
There was a time when Sarasate's solo pieces appeared in violinists' programmes with almost the same unfailing regularity as Kreisler's original pieces and transcriptions do now.

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.
