: HARRY ENGLEMAN'S QUINTET

with MARY POLLOCK (soprano) and VERNON ADCOCK (xylophone)
(From Birmingham)
Harry Engleman carries on the musical tradition of his family. His father, Joseph Engleman , is a composer, and his grandfather was a trombonist in the old Birmingham Grand Theatre orchestra. He has broadcast frequently since 1931, when he played some of his own compositions in the Children's Hour with Bert Lamb on the xylophone. His Quintet, with himself in the role of pianist, was formed later. It is noted for its polished performance of light music, much of which has been arranged by Engleman himself.

: A Sonata Recital

JOSEPH SHADWICK (violin)
WILFRID PARRY (pianoforte)
Debussy's Sonata for violin and piano, the third of a projected set of six sonatas for various instruments, wa3 the last work he completed. It was written in the winter of 1916-17, when the composer had already been suffering for more than a year from the incurable disease from which he died early in 1918. Ill as he was, Debussy played the piano part in the first performance in Paris (May, 1917), with Gaston Poulet as the violinist. It was the great man's last appearance in Paris as a performer. He himself wrote of this Sonata as ' one of those countless little intimate tragedies that overwhelm you without making any more noise than a rose shedding its petals, leaving the rest of the world at peace '.

: Men Talking-14

DENIS JOHNSTON
Conversation has always been a tour de force with Irishmen, and Denis Johnston is the third to appear in this series. He is the author of The Moon in the Yellow River-that play of humour, tragedy, and bitter truth to life-which had such a long and varied run in London at the Embassy, the Westminster, and the Haymarket, and was also broadcast in the spring. In addition, he has been concerned with making films in Ireland, and it was his broadcast talk on this subject that so clearly indicated him as a choice for this series which specialises in spontaneous conversation.

: What does your Village do about This?: I: The Village Hall

Granville Streatfeild
Three talks are to be given under this heading, and the idea behind the series is to put 'the village' wise as to essential things for their entertainment, health, and safety. Today the Village Hall is to be discussed, tomorrow the Village Playing Fields, and the Village Fire Brigade next Monday.
This evening Mr. Granville Streatfeild, an architect responsible for village halls who has himself served as chairman of the hall in his own village, is to tell those villages that are without a hall how to set about getting one. If they require finance - and probably most of them do - they will learn under what conditions they can get help.
Tomorrow Captain Kenneth Shennan, Secretary to the Gloucestershire Playing Fields Association, who runs the local playing fields in his own village of Stow-on-the-Wold, is to do the same thing with regard to playing fields.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
