: THE LEON WAYNE SEXTET

The Leon Wayne Sextet is led by Leon Wayne himself. The other instruments are second violin doubling clarinet and saxophone, viola doubling violin, piano, violoncello, and bass. Leon Wayne began to study the violin when he was ten years of age-one of his teachers was the late Max Mossel. Three years later he was playing solos in public. Since then he has built up a considerable reputation for presentations of light orchestral works and dance music.

: A Symphony Concert

THE BBC
MIDLAND ORCHESTRA
Leader, ALFRED CAVE
Conducted by LESLIE HEWARD
Liszt's symphonic poem Hamlet' (completed in June, 1858) makes no attempt to tell the ' story ' of Shakespeare's tragedy. It is a musical study of the hero himself, comparable with Wagner's Faust Overture, though more subtle in psychological delineation. The opening is gloomy and hesitant. Later come bursts of passion and vigorous decision, and a great climax is built up-only to be cut short by the (rhythmic) figure of ' Fate' (from Beethoven's Fifth Symphony). There is a pause and, for a few bars, flutes and clarinets evoke the shade of Ophelia. It is twice dismissed with mocking irony, and we see the wretched hero at the climax of his frenzy. Finally Liszt takes farewell of his hero in a quiet epilogue (Andante funebre). ' The rest is silence.'

: In Your Garden

C. H. MIDDLETON
With this evening's talk this series, which has gone on through a second Christmas, enters on a new year. Mr. C. H. Middleton has won popularity not only for his broadcast talks that so ably and admirably give gardeners sound advice throughout the year, but because seeing himself as a gardening doctor, he repeatedly calls in specialists and brings them personally to the microphone. He has rendered a service invaluable to amateur and professional gardeners alike.
This evening he is to come to the microphone alone and will briefly teview the new catalogues and make one or two suggestions as to good flowers to grow in 1936.

: Keyboard Talks-I

HAROLD SAMUEL
In this series of ' Keyboard Talks' Harold Samuel will talk about and play well-known pieces of piano music. Some of them he will analyse in his own way, showing their difficulties and less obvious beauties. His examples will not be confined to serious music ; he will show how during one generation a piece has become popular and in the nextgeneration it is dismissed as' banal'.

: Decision-5

by MABEL CONSTANDUROS with DAVID BucHAN at the pianoforte
Decisions have to be made at every moment of our lives-many of them on small matters that may lead to something far more important later on. On looking back and speculating on the ' might have been ', no one other than oneself can ever tell how nearly one might have decided the other way. In this ' Decision ', the fifth of the series, the problem is common enough-which of two candidates is the daughter of the house going to marry ? Her father and mother each have strong and different views which they keep rather to themselves ; but here they reveal them by thinking aloud at the microphone. The girl comes to her decision in the same kind of soliloquy, and finally the young man makes his choice -rather unexpectedly.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
