: THE BBC WELSH ORCHESTRA

Leader, Frank Thomas
Conducted by Mansel Thomas
Olive Gilbert (contralto) It was the appearance of the first part of Hiawatha, in 1898, which spread Coleridge-Taylor's fame all over the English-speaking world, and as it was the composer's first really important success, so it has remained the most popular of all his music. In its vivid and yet simple rhythm, its fresh and natural melody, and in the warmth of its orchestral treatment, the music is obviously ideally mated with Longfellow's poem. The ' Wedding Feast' was first given alone, the second part, ' The Death of Minnehaha ', appearing a year later at a North Staffordshire Festival. ' Hiawatha's Departure ', which completes the trilogy, was first given by the Royal Choral Society in London in the spring of 1900.

: THE BRITISH OPEN GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP

A description of the morning's play by BERNARD DARWIN from Carnoustie
The Open Golf Championship at Carnoustie began with the playing of qualifying rounds on July 5 and finishes tomorrow (when another broadcast will be given). There were 250 entries, including forty players from overseas, among them the full Ryder Cup team from America and teams from France, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, Egypt, and Jamaica. Among the entries were twelve past champions, notable among them the American professional, T. Armour , who won at Carnoustie in 1931. Perhaps the most interesting entry was John Montague of Hollywood, ' mystery man of golf', of whom the story is told that with a rake, shovel and baseball bat he has beaten well-known amateurs playing from scratch.

' Pastoral' is a programme of verse, prose, and music upon the themes of quiet and the countryside. The music throughout has been written by Alan Paul who will himself be at the piano for the first programme ever given of his own serious music. He will be remembered as the composer of .the very successful radio musical comedy Breakfast in Evening Dress, book by Charles Brewer , which was broadcast from London two years ago and has been broadcast from Cape Town during the past winter.
Paul was born in Glasgow and was a student at the Glasgow Athenaeum, now called the Scottish Academy of Music, from 1917 to 1921, when he came to London to join the Royal College of Music. In his first year there he had to make some money to help with his fees and left the college for four months to go on tour with Polly (sequel to The Beggar's Opera). About a year ago he joined the BBC.

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.
