: Fashionable Crazes

' Masculine Crazes'
Mrs. H. RICHARDSON
Mrs. Richardson has already talked of crazes in hairdressing, education, and cosmetics. Today she is to run through the years and show her listeners how men have made fools of themselves sartorially from time immemorial. She will describe Elizabethan gallants with their ridiculous trunks ; eighteenth-century dandies who wore their hair long, combed it in public, and spent a fortune in lace; nineteenth-century fops who ' tight-laced' their waists as well as their trousers. And so on to cravats and Dundreary whiskers. Listeners may wish that Mrs. Richardson, with her gift for satire, had included in her talk a lampoon on masculine crazes of today, but hope that she will discuss them in a future broadcast.

One of the most distinguished British baritones is Herbert Heyner , who has appeared at more than twenty seasons of Promenade Concerts and has sung principal baritone at all the leading provincial festivals. He has also appeared in opera at Covent Garden. Mr. Heyner is an extraordinarily versatile artist, for in addition to oratorio and opera, he has distinguished himself as a singer of Fr. nch songs and German Lieder. Among British composers he has done much to make known the songs of Delius, Elgar, and Dame Ethel Smyth.

The harp that once thro' Tara's Halls Let Erin remember the days of old Thro' grief and thro' danger It is not the tear
0 think not my spirits

Believe me, if all those endearing young charms
The time I've lost in wooing 'Tis the last rose of summer

: Night Shift

A broadcast from a lambing pen on the Wiltshire Downs
This is the first of a new series of broad- casts designed to show how the world works at night. Tonight listeners are to be taken to a lambing pen on Mr. Coombes's farm at Fovant, near Salisbury, on the Wiltshire Downs.
A. G. Street , Wiltshire farmer and popular writer and broadcaster of farming subjects, is to set the scene and to describe its significance. There will be a microphone in the shepherd's hut. and another in the lambing pen. It is probable that listeners will hear Mr. Coombes and his shepherd talking together and they will be able to eavesdrop on the whole thing. It is hoped to convey the essential atmosphere of a shepherd's work at night in his actual surroundings.

(Section E)

LAELIA FINNEBERG (soprano)
1. Allegro moderato; 2. Allegro molto vivace; 3. Andante con moto ; 4. Allegro moderato, ma con fuoco
Stanford's Irish Symphony is practically unknown to the present generation. It should be more popular, because it is full of good tunes. The chief tune in the slow movement is rather like the one that opens the slow movement of Brahms's Fourth Symphony, but although the two symphonies were composed at about the same time, it is not a case of plagiarism. Stanford actually based his tune on an old Irish folk song, ' The Lament of the Sons of Usnach '. The last movement is based on two Irish tunes, ' Remember the glories of Bryan the Brave ' and ' Let Erin remember the days old '.
In view of the widespread interest in folk songs, it is curious that so few ' national ' symphonies have been produced by British composers. Sullivan and Parry wrote English Symphonies that have been unduly neglected. Another Irish Symphony was composed by Sir Hamilton Harty.

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.
