: 'GOOD

CORRESPONDENTS'
Eric Gillett
This series really began a week ago with the reading by Eve Morganti of a selection from letters written by Queen Victoria at Balmoral. There are to be seven more broadcasts, the good correspondents chosen including Keats, Jane Austen , Horace Wal pole, Scott, and Walter H. Page , American Ambassador in London during the war. Each of the broadcasts will be given by Eric Gillett. The extracts from Lamb to be read tonight have been chosen to show him as the courageous fighter rather than the delightful essayist, the man who throughout his life faced misfortune cheerfully.
Eric Gillett , who was broadcasting ten years ago, has given a number of talks since 1935 under the title 'These My Friends He last broadcast in the early summer, giving seven talks under the title ' These Made Me Laugh'.

: A CONCERT OF BALLET MUSIC The BBC Orchestra (Section C)

Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Leighton Lucas
Suite of German Dances
Beethoven, orch. Leighton Lucas
This suite has been specially selected from Beethoven's early works-the German Dances, the Ecossaises for military band, etc.-for presentation by the Markova-Dolin ballet. This is the first concert performance of the suite.
Caprice brillant on the Jota aragonesa
Glinka
When Glinka visited Spain in 1845 he was keenly interested in Spanish folk music. In Valladolid, in particular, he listened with delight to the guitar playing of a lad named Felix Castilla , one of whose tunes, the Aragonese jota and its variations, so took the Russian composer's fancy that immediately on his arrival in Madrid in the autumn he made it the basis of this brilliantly orchestrated ' Caprice '.
Ballet Suite, Les Biches (The House
Party).....................Poulenc
Les Biches was originally produced by Diaghilev in 1924, with choreography by Nijinska. It is a satirical comedy, without any definite story but representing a house-party. (The London production was actually entitled The House Party.) It introduces a number of ' smart girls ' (les biches) who amuse themselves with scandal, etc., and three acrobats who flirt with them.

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.
