: BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA

Leader, Bertram Lewis
Conductor, Richard Austin
Solo pianoforte, Cyril Smith Arnold Bax describes his tone poem 'Tintagel' as follows : ' This work is only in the broadest sense programme music. The composer's intention is simply to offer a tonal impression of the castle-crowned cliff of (now sadly degenerate) Tintagel, and more especially of the long distances of the Atlantic, as seen from the cliffs of Cornwall on a sunny, but not windless summer day. The literary and traditional associations of the scene also enter into the scheme. The music opens, after a few introductory bars, with a theme, given out on the brass, which may be taken as representing the ruined castle, now so ancient and weatherworn as to seem an emanation of the rock upon which it is built. The. subject is worked to a broad diatonic climax and is followed by a long melody' for strings, which may suggest the serene and almost limitless spaces of the ocean.'

: Straight from the Horse's Mouth

A Record of a Day in a Racing Stable
The programme devised by Tom Walls, Jack Inglis and H. L. Morrow
On this, the eve of the Grand National, a programme has been arranged by means of records taken at Tom Walls's 'April the Fifth' stables at Ewell, to give listeners an idea of what has been going on behind the scenes for months in the various racing stables in the country before the curtain can be rung up at Aintree on the running of the greatest steeplechase in the world. The actual voices of many racing celebrities will be heard, including Tom Walls, E. Williams , who will probably ride the favourite, Royal Mail, tomorrow, F. Walwyn (who rode Reynoldstown to victory in his second Grand National last year), and the famous Anthony brothers, Jack, Ivor, and Owen.

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.
