: THE FRONT ROW

A Programme of Artists chosen from the Choruses of current London
Productions
The BBC Variety Orchestra conducted by John Weaver
Produced by John Watt and Francis Bolton
Many of our famous actresses graduated from chorus-not always from the front row ; and one of those to believe that talent is to be found there is Francis Bolton , formerly manager of the Dominion Theatre, London, and of the Opera House, Manchester, and now with the BBC, who devised with John Watt this novel programme.
The chance was given to the members of the chorus at every theatre in London ; notices were put up on the call-board and anyone who liked could write in. An audition was refused to no one. Tonight listeners are to hear these ladies and gentlemen of the chorus who are to be given the opportunity to become individual for one night.

Bach is unique in that every other great composer from Haydn to Hindemith has paid homage to the manifold qualities of his genius. At the same time, he is no less a god to the plain man, which is a remarkable tribute to the varied and powerful appeal of his music as music, for it is quite uncoloured with those personal and romantic associations which have made Beethoven's C minor Symphony a symbol of 'Fate' and Chopin's Nocturnes a confession of 'Love'.
Popularising Bach
Sir Donald Tovey has called Bach ' a spectator of all musical time and existence'. He came at the end of a great period and summed up all that it stood for. It was because of this that his music found little favour with his younger contemporaries and immediate successors. For nearly a hundred years after his death the greater part of his works lay buried and forgotten.
Humility of Genius
Bach was a man of strong will and set purpose. He had his own ideas on how his work should be carried out, and if they ran counter to those of his patrons, so much the worse for them. He could be obstinate and aggressive, and show a bad temper that brooked no defiance ; he knew his own strength as a musician, though probably he never realised the true extent of his creative genius ; but he. was not without humility. Once, when asked the secret of his organ playing, he said:
' There is nothing wonderful about it. You just strike the right note and the organ does the rest.'

: THE WORLD GOES BY

A collection of persons and personalities who will broadcast views and information on life, London, the country, and the world-tonight and every Wednesday
Anything of interest, things that don't necessarily get into the news, things happening in London or in the English countryside, or on the Continent, or across the seven seas - listeners hear about them all in ' The World Goes By'. This series has proved so successful that three months of broadcasting have whetted the appetites of listeners, and it is to be continued for three months more.
Five five-minute talks-the first about something in London ; the second about something in the country, and always given by the inimitable Petulengro, of In Town Tonight' fame. (Every week he goes into the countryside-somewhere or other, and comes back and talks of something interesting which he has seen.) Then follow talks about events in the rest of the world, given more often than not by travellers who have just returned. Commander Gould, Commander Campbell , and Ella Maillart have all broadcast in the series more than once.

: AUDREY HYSLOP

in a sketch written by herself
' Mrs. Tactless Takes a Hand'
Listeners will remember the monologue, ' Love me, Love my Dog', which Audrey Hyslop broadcast so brilliantly in July of last year ; and tonight she is to give a new monologue with a bridge party for a background.
She has had an extraordinarily varied career since her name first became known to London in Pelissier's Follies. Gilbert and Sullivan operas in South Africa, music-hall work here, there, and everywhere in impersonations of a charwoman, concert-party work in India. It is given to few to write monologues so cleverly and to portray such a variety of characters so admirably.

: RONALD GOURLEY

Entertainer
Another first-class entertainer is Ronald Gourley , described in ' People you Hear ' as ' The Blind Fairy Godfather of Norwood '. He can play anything and whistle anything. His own composition, ' The Dicky Bird Hop', is almost a classic. Blind from birth, he has found his compensation in children, has broadcast about once a month in the London Children's Hour from the time it started, and brings two children from Norwood with him each time he broadcasts. More than 350 have sat in the studio with him up to date-two at a time-while he entertains on the air.

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.
