: Scenes from Berlioz's Oratorio ' THE CHILDHOOD OF CHRIST '

Chorus Master, Leslie Woodgate

(Section C)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Joseph Lewis
On December 10, 1854, the first performance of Berlioz's The Childhood of Christ was given in Paris, but while ii was well received by the public, it was not a success with the critics. The Childhood of Christ consists of three parts: 1. Herod's Dream,. 2. The Flight into Egypt, 3. The Arrival at Sais; 'The Flight into Egypt' is the most important of the three parts and it was actually the first of the three to be written.
This is the only oratorio Berlioz ever wrote, and it was regarded by him with special affection. He wrote both words and music, and succeeded in treating his subject with gentle simplicity.

: MISSIONARY TALK

' Among the Sea Dyaks of Sarawak'
The Rev. A. J. Sparrow
Readers of adventure stories are familiar with exploits in which the sea dyaks of Sarawak figure prominently, probably as fierce headr hunters. Manners and customs change, however, and it is among the most virile of these sea dyaks living on the Saribas River in Sarawak that the Rev. A. J. Sparrow of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel is working today. His talk will deal with present conditions in this little-known part of the world.

Betty Humby (pianoforte) Mendelssohn's Sextet in D for the unusual combination of piano, violin, two violas, 'cello, and basa was published posthumously as Op. 110.
It is an early work written when Mendelssohn was fifteen years of age. Although it contains remarkably fresh and vigorous music, it has, for some curious reason, been unduly neglected.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE NORWICH INSTITUTION
FOR THE BLIND, by MATHESON LANG
This Institution, founded in 1805 by Thomas Tawell , a citizen of Norwich who himself went blind, has provided for 132 years a Home for aged blind people. In addition, it is now a technical training centre for sightless people from all parts of the eastern counties. Fifty blind men and women are employed in its workshops, and it has 130 blind pupils, both workers and residents.
Recently the old buildings have had to be improved and extended to provide the most modern and skilful training and as comfortable accommodation as possible. The Institution, which is supported by voluntary contributions, was left £10,000 in debt. A local appeal has raised £5,000. Matheson Lang will ask listeners to help with the other £5,000, which must be found if the Institution is to continue its great work of relieving the enforced and lonely idleness of the untrained blind, and turning them into self-reliant citizens.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Matheson Lang , Esq., [address removed]

: THE BLUE CROSS

A Father Brown Story by G. K. Chesterton
In 1929 was published the first collected edition of G. K. Chesterton 's stories of Father Brown, ' a little priest with a face as round and dull as a Norfolk dumpling ' and ' eyes as empty as the North Sea', who has become surely one of the great figures in detective fiction.
This is the first story in the book, indeed the first Father Brown story that ever appeared (1908). But it is not the first radio appearance of Father Brown, for ' The Honour of Israel Gow' was broadcast last December. Again Richard Goolden , famous for his character studies of old men-not forgetting ' Mr. Chips '-is to play Father Brown, and Austin Trevor , who played a French detective before, is to play a French detective again-this time, the great Valentin. Listeners should be absorbed by this exciting story of a chase through London, beginning in Soho Square and ending on Hampstead Heath.

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.
