Conducted by Leslie Heward
Movements from Suite in G de Greef
Arthur de Greef , best known to us in this country as a brilliant solo pianist, is also a composer of some distinction. Born at Louvain, he studied first at the Brussels Conservatoire and afterwards was a pupil of Liszt at Weimar.
Of his more important works, several have been given in this country, notably ' Four Old Flemish Songs ' for orchestra, which he conducted himself at Queen's Hall in 1896, and a Piano Concerto in C which he played there under Sir Henry Wood in 1921.

: 'I SAW THE START'

'Revue 1912'
Robert Hale
Although there had been spasmodic earlier attempts to introduce ' Revue' into London, the first winner was Everybody's Doing It at the Empire in 1912, when Robert Hale was in the lead. He appeared in at least twelve different characters, from Lord Lonsdale to Burgess swimming the Channel, and most of the changes had to be made while the chorus did a song.
In revue in those days there was no limit to the topicality, and politicians, home and foreign, were mercilessly skitted by Hale-Lloyd George , Bottomley, and the rest-as well as judges, business men, and singers, such as Darling, Lipton, and Caruso. To keep your place in revue you had to learn to play the great horn, the sleigh bells, and the xylophone, to box, and to be a trapeze artist and acrobat. Tonight, in the first of a new series, Robert Hale is to give listeners some idea of what it was like.

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.
