: 'AS I LOOK BACK'

H. de Vere Stacpoole
This is the first talk in a reminiscent series to be given fortnightly by established broadcasters. H. de Vere Stacpoole, whose talks in the Savoy Hill days will be remembered by many listeners, is famous as the author of ' The Blue Lagoon ', and is surely the most versatile of living novelists. Stories as different as ' The Pools of Silence ' and ' The Street of the Fluteplayer ' have come from his pen, and nobody who read ' Patsy ' and ' Garryowen ' could possibly doubt his being an Irishman.
He is to speak of his childhood and youth—especially his childhood spent at Kingstown. His mother knew Charles Lever and was well up in Irish folk lore; he says that he attributes to her whatever gifts he may have for writing. An Irish doctor, who was stone deaf and carried a stethoscope in his hat, gave him the idea of becoming a doctor. The great charm of his talk lies in his description of the Irish characters he met around his home as a child, among them Macmahon, a gardener, who saw fairies and believed that ships that never came back sailed into the full moon.

The Stratton String Quartet :
George Stratton (violin); Carl Taylor (violin); Watson Forbes (viola) ;
John Moore (violoncello)
George Stratton has been for many years now one of London's foremost violinists. Principal violin of the London Symphony Orchestra, he is also leader and founder of the Stratton String Quartet, whose performances are well known to radio listeners, as well as concert-goers.
Admired by Bach
Johann Friedrich Fasch (1688-1758) was a pupil of Kuhnau and an eminent contemporary of Bach. As Court Cappelmeister and organist he composed a great deal of music of both a religious and secular style. It is interesting to note that Bach held Fasch's music in such high esteem that he took the trouble to copy out five of Fasch's orchestral suites.
Schumann's Opus 41, dedicated to Mendelssohn, consists of three string quartets, of which the first is being played this evening. All three were composed in practically a month, and on more than one occasion during that period Schumann completed a whole movement in one day.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

ST. MARTIN'S SUMMER APPEAL by the Rev. PAT MCCORMICK , D.S.O.
The Holiday Fund was started many years ago by Canon Sheppard' Dick ' Sheppard-then Vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields. By means of it, both he and his successor there, the Rev. Pat McCormick , have been able to help many poor people to have a good holiday, and especially those who have seen better days and to whom a small gift of money makes all the difference. As all work involved is done by voluntary helpers, there are no overhead expenses, the only charge upon the fund being the cost of postage and printing of receipts. Apart from this, every penny given goes towards somebody's holiday.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

: Revival of 1 A FESTIVAL OF FOLK MUSIC

A Pot-Pourri by Julius Buerger The BBC Chorus
(Section C) and The BBC
Theatre Orchestra
Conducted by Stanford Robinson
Music knows no national frontiers, yet folk music almost invariably is as characteristic as a flag. Fascinating music it is too, full of melody and rhythm, and expressive of the soil and the joys and pains of love. Dr. Buerger has collected the folk music of eleven countries : England, Italy, Germany, Czechoslovakia, France, Poland, Norway, Spain, Austria, Russia and Hungary, and in this programme, which was first broadcast on May 3 and 4, 1936, he has welded this medley of tunes into an hour's pot-pourri. An interesting feature of this broadcast is that the songs will be surfg in the language of their origin.
'A Festival of Folk Music ' mil be broadcast again tomorrow q,in the Regional programme ari.0.

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.
