: The Lost Art of Staying at Home

KEVIN FITZGERALD
Here is a talk on this lost art by one who has found it again and gloats over his enjoyment of it, for Kevin Fitzgerald knows the wisdom of that wise saw of Jorrocks's. ' Where I dines I sleeps and where I sleeps I has my breakfast'. Not for him the turning out on a winter's night to spend the evening with Other people. Let them come to him.
And they do, and over his fire give him their confidences. At midnight, in his carpet slippers, he stands in the hall for a moment and sees them go out reluctantly into the wind or snow.
And returning to his snug room, the glow of the fire, he chuckles to himself : ' Not me '.
In this amusing talk he will describe the ghastiv evening he once spent rushing wildly about London in search of pleasure which he never found-an evening which he determined never to repeat and which caused him to cultivate the lost art of staying at home.

Opera by Humperdinck
Act I. Scene : The Home
Act II. Scene : The Forest
Conductor, Geoffrey Corbett
Producer, Sumner Austin
Chorus Master, Geoffrey Corbett from Sadler's Wells Theatre
After the overture the curtain rises on Hansel and Gretel in their cottage; they are romping and singing when their mother returns to find them neglecting the tasks she had set them. She packs them off to the woods to gather berries, and no sooner have they gone than the father comes home ; he has had a lucky day selling his brooms. When he hears where the children are, he is horrified, and soon makes his wife share in his terror ; a witch, he tells her, lives in the wood, who eats little children. They rush off together in search of Hansel and Gretel.
Act II is in the wood where the children have lost their way. In answer to their prayer, as they lie down to sleep, angels come down from on high to guard them.

William Walton 's ' Façade ' was written in 1923 when the composer was twenty-one years of age. It was originally conceived as a series of poems by Edith Sitwell to be recited through a megaphone with musical accompaniment, for flute, clarinet, saxophone, 'cello, trumpet, and percussion. These accompaniments are mostly in the form of very clever and witty parodies of popular dance tunes, ranging from the polka to the foxtrot.
In 1926 Walton revised this work and a!so arranged an orchestral Suite for concert use, in which form it was played as an interlude during the Diaghilev Russian Ballet seasons, and will be heard this evening.
A few years ago, however, the Vic-
Wells Ballet thought of the happy idea of adapting the music of ' Fa9ade ' as a ballet, and accordingly one of the cleverest and wittiest of modern ballets was produced, Frederick Ashton being responsible for the choreography and John Armstrong for the costumes and decor. There is no story to the ballet; it consists merely of a series of brilliant little character studies. On its first performance at Sadler's Wells it was an immediate success, and since that time it has been one of the most popular ballets in the Vic-Wells repertoire.

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.
