: THE DERBY

The 154th Renewal of the Derby Stakes
A running commentary by Geoffrey Gilbey and Quintin Gilbey from the Grandstand,
Epsom Racecourse
Commentaries on the running for the Blue Riband of the Turf-the best-known race in the world-will be given by the two famous racing journalists, the brothers Geoffrey and Quintin Gilbey , who broadcast commentaries on the St. Leger of ten years ago and created a stir with a radio discussion on betting in 1931. Geoffrey, who gave the commentary on the first Derby ever broadcast (in 1927) and the commentary on the Grand National of 1928, is one of the most versatile personalities in the world of sport. He went to Eton, got a half-blue for running at Oxford, served in the Rifle Brigade during the war, made his name as a racing journalist, owns racehorses (his two-year-old Minaret may run in the race preceding the Derby), and yet his main interest in life is his work for the Prisoners' Aid Society, in connection with Wormwood Scrubs Prison. His younger brother was also at Eton. Last year he wrote racing articles for leading newspapers and published ' Racing for Fun ', which has been described as one of the best books on the turf.
On Friday (at 3.15 Regional) they will give commentaries on the first Oaks ever to be broadcast. It is a classic race for fillies only, run over the identical course of 1 miles at Epsom.

Third Concert
'The Pastoral Symphony'
Beethoven's Symphony No. 6 in F, ' The Pastoral ', is one of the very few works to which the composer outlined a programme. He said that the music was to be considered
' more the expression of sentiment than painting '. Berlioz declared that this symphony affected him more deeply than any of the others.

: CONCERT-Part 2

A Great Work
Brahms's Variations on a Theme by Haydn is one of the greatest works of its kind, showing a sense of beauty and proportion and an ingenuity of treatment that remain as fresh and expressive today as when it was first performed in 1873. The climax of the work is the finale, which is a magnificent passacaglia, the ground or repeated bass of which is derived from the opening Haydn theme (the ' Chorale St. Antonii ').
' Death and Transfiguration'
Strauss's ' Death and Transfiguration ' is divided into four sections: (1) the sick man lies in his bed and dreams of ' childhood's golden day ' ; (2) then comes a fierce, delirious fight with Death. Once again there follows stillness ; (3) the dying man reviews all' his past life. At length there comes a briefer, fiercer struggle, in which Death strikes its final blow ; (4) the stillness of death is succeeded by the Transfiguration.

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.
