: JACK WILSON AND HIS VERSATILE FIVE

with JACK FORD (tenor)
Jack Wilson first broadcast from Birmingham in February, 1930, but his Versatile Five were introduced to the microphone only about eighteen months ago. For most of their radio concerts a vocalist is used, and in this capacity Jack Ford , the Birmingham-Canadian tenor, has appeared with them during the last few months. Jack Wilson is also known as a pianist in another favourite combination, the Coventry Hippodrome Orchestra. In the past he organised a dance band, for which he composed a good deal of syncopated music.

ANTHONY COLLINS (viola)
KATHLEEN COOPER (pianoforte) Benjamin Date, now a distinguished member of the staff of the Royal Academy of Music, is an important member of the British renaissance which covered the decade just before the War, and though he has not since . added many more to his early list of compositions, all possess a distinction which the years appear to enhance. His music is notable for the beauty of its craftsmanship and for the originality of its melodic invention. That of his work which shows him at his best lies in the chamber works he wrote at the prompting of Lionel Tertis, for Dale was amongst the first to collaborate with Tertis in lifting the viola into the kingdom of sol instruments.

: Many Inventions-1

H. STAFFORD HATFIELD , Ph.D.
The romance as well as the scientific side of inventions will figure in this new series, which should be doubly interesting because it is to be given by an inventor, for Dr. Hatfield has invented, among other things, a type of electrical meter of which over a million have been sold.
Before the War he was in charge of the manufacture and installation of this meter for leading firms both in England and in Germany, and carried out research work at Breslau University and Braunschweig. He was interned in Ruhleben when war broke out, initiated camp educational organisation, arranging thirty courses of lectures in the spring of 1915, and later started a laboratory in camp with several other scientists for research and teaching.
Back in England after the War, he
* was Consultant to the Research Board, and did research work at the National Physical Laboratory. He is the author of ' Automaton, or the Future of the Mechanical Man ', ' The Conquest of Thought by Invention', and The Mechanical Man '.

(Section C)
Led by "LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by GIDEON FAGAN Nicolai, like Mascagni and Leoncavallo in more recent times, was a ' one work ' composer. His fame rests on his opera The Merry Wives of Windsor. In England, however, we know only the overture with its romantic introduction exquisitely painting the moonlit Forest of Windsor. Incidentally, one melody which appears later in the piece evidently inspired one of the loveliest tunes in The Mastersingers. Wagner, rehearsing his own masterpiece, is said on one occasion to have stopped the orchestra with a cry of dismay : ' Good heavens, gentlemen ! This is Nicolai-and I never noticed it '.

THE KUTCHER STRING
QUARTET:

MAY BUSBY (soprano)
WATSON FORBES (viola)
WATSON FORBES AND QUARTET The G minor Quintet is considered to be Mozart's greatest chamber work. A certain Russian dilettante and an authority on Mozart has summed up this Quintet as follows : ' The G minor
Quintet is a complete little drama with its exposition, its vicissitudes, and its happy denouement, but a drama without events, and having for its theatre and for action a series of psychological studies which derive one from another, and mutually explain one another. Whatever idescribable pleasures the execution of this masterpiece may have afforded to the dilettante, it should be also studied with the eye, if, to the delicious emotions of the heart, it is desired to join those of the intelligence.' Mendelssohn wrote two quintets for strings. The first in A, Op. 18, was written while he was at Berlin in 1826 when, at the age of seventeen, his genius had blossomed forth into full flower. It was conceived as a tribute to the memory of the composer's friend, Edunrd Rietz. In 1832, however, Mendelssohn laid aside the minuet movement and substituted the present ' Intermezzo ' movement. Those who admire graceful and charming melody, lucid construction, and polished craftsmanship will find all these qualities at their best in this Quintet.

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.
