(Section C)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Joseph Lewis
Frank Laffitte (pianoforte)
(Conducted by the Composer)
Australian Composer
Hubert Clifford is an Australian composer who came to England in 1930. He studied in Melbourne under Fritz Hart , and at the Royal College of Music with Vaughan Williams and Professor C. H. Kitson. He is now music master at Beckenham County School. Among his compositions are the present ' Kentish ' Suite, of which four numbers are being broadcast this afternoon, a Quartet in D which was broadcast last May, and a Lyrical Sketch for orchestra. According to the composer's own Preface to the ' Kentish ' Suite, he ' had in mind the Kent of Restoration times, the focal idea, in fact, being suggested by the opening chapter of Arthur Bryant 's " The England of Charles II ", in which is described the probable journey made from Dover to London by Charles on his return from exile '.
Musical Pictures
The music of the four numbers to be broadcast describes the following scenes : 1 ' Dover ', a Hornpipe with two trios in the seventeenth-century English style. 3 ' Pastoral and Folk Song '. An attempt is made here to capture the mood of the Kentish countryside, of soft green landscape and damp earth. The pastoral is temporarily interrupted by a somewhat bucolic Kentish folk song I have House and Land in Kent'.
4 ' Swift Nicks of Gad's Hill ', a Scherzo. Nicholas Nevinson was a highwayman of the period who plied his business at Gad's Hill, near Gravesend. His famous ride to York, usually associated with the name of Dick Turpin , earned his title to fame, and King Charles, on hearing of his exploits, granted him a free pardon and dubbed him ' Swift Nicks 5 ' Greenwich : A Pageant of the River '. The last stage of the journey from Greenwich to Whitehall was accomplished on the Royal yachts, and was in the nature of a ceremonial return to London. The dignity and grandeur of the pageant is suggested in this processional march.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of ST. BARTHOLOMEW'S HOSPITAL, by Lord HORDER, K.C.V.O.
A wonderful history lies behind the name of ' Bart's ', a history of service to the sick and needy for over
800 years. This great hospital was established on the present site in A.D. 1123. Since those days it has been so enlarged that now there are 712 beds, into which 11,000 in-patients are admitted each year, while there are nearly 500,000 outpatient attendances. These patients pay no fees. The small voluntary contributions which some are able to make cover but a fraction of the cost.
The hospital has been .rebuilt and modernised many times. The latest development is a new medical block of 250 beds, now approaching completion, which will cost over £150,000.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to The Lord Horder, K.C.V.O., [address removed]

: LOOK TO YOUR MOATE

The story of the English Channel by Arthur Bryant
' It may be said now to England, Martha, Martha, thou art busy about many things, but one thing is necessary. To the question, What shall we do to be saved in this world ? there is no other answer but this,
Look to your Moate-'
George Saville , Marquess of Halifax
Produced by Laurence Gilliam
The story of the English Channel is almost the story of English history. In this programme the story is told in extracts from notable writings about the famous men and the historic occasions that the Channel has witnessed. Historic events have been welded into a continuous narrative, told against a background of music which the Channel has evoked, notably the sea shanties.

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.
