ANTHONY HURD
A fortnight ago the'Milk Reorganisation Commission's report was published, and it is likely to be discussed by farmers for many weeks to come. The Commission was charged by the Government with the task of reviewing the operations of the several milk marketing schemes in the United Kingdom, and it has made far-reaching recommendations which are of vital interest to farmers, a great number of whom are now- dependent on milk production.
This evening the proposals made in the report are to be the subject of Anthony Hurd 's broadcast.

' Entertainment Parade' has been compered from the beginning by that popular comedian, Henry Kendall. He trained "at the Old Vic, and played thirty-two parts there before serving for two years in the R.A.F. during the war. On being demobilised he returned to the stage and made his first big success as Lieut. Graham at the Apollo, in French Leave. He appeared with the Astaires in their first London success, Stop Flirting, and created the role of Dick Chappell in the war play Havoc which ran for a year at the Haymarket. He then went to New York and acted with Irene Bordoni.
His success in The Flying Fool, after his return to England, led to his first long film contract. He starred in such films as Rich and Strange, with Joan Barry , Mr. Bill the Conqueror with-Heather Angel , and Innocents of Chicago with Binnie Barnes and Margot Gra hame. In four years he has made thirty-four pictures. Returning to the stage once more, he appeared in Someone at the Door, which ran for a year at the Comedy, and he broadcast in an extract from it last year.

In the spring of 1875 Brahms worked at, among other works, the B fiat Quartet, Op. 67, which is' the most gracious of his three works in this form. Walter Niemann calls it Brahms's 'Pastoral Quartet' for everything about the music proclaims it to be pastoral : first, the character of the themes which are ' brief nature-motifs of a pastorally idyllic, naive, and comically humorous ,kind, as, for instance, in the lively " horn-calls in triplets " of the principal subject in the first movementIn keeping with this is the highly subtle rhythmical resource, frequently recalling the Beethoven of the " Pastoral " Symphony.'

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
