: ECCENTRICS

' Jemmy Hirst and Owd Three Laps'
T. Thompson
(From North)
' Eccentricity', according to Edith Sitwell , 'exists particularly in the English, and partly, I think, because of that peculiar and satisfactory knowledge of infallibility that is the hallmark and birthright of the British nation.' But a sense of personal infallibility cannot be the whole explanation. William Sharp (' Owd Three Laps') took to his bed for forty-nine years because his bride failed to turn up at the church.
Jemmy Hirst , the ex-tanner of Rawcliffe, adopted more active forms of eccentricity-going shooting on a bull, with pigs as pointers, betting with banknotes for fivepence-half-penny (made by himself), and arranging for his coffin to be borne to the grave by eight widows.

: FROM THE PROMENADE CONCERT

at Queen's Hall, London
(Sole Lessees, Messrs. Chappell and Co.,Ltd.)
Helen Perkin (pianoforte)
The BBC Symphony Orchestra
(ninety players)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by SIR HENRY J. WOOD
Few modern concertos have stayed the course in public esteem. The concertos of Prokofiev, however, are notable exceptions. Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 3, in C, is one of the most popular of his concertos. The writing throughout is clear-cut and brilliant, particularly in the case of the solo instrument, and its vital rhythms and pungent harmonies are outstanding features of the music.
Kodaly's ' Ballet Music' is somewhat of an enigma, for outside this title the composer has offered no clue as to what the music really represents: whether it was actually composed for a real ballet, or whether it is just ballet music in the abstract. The character of the music, however, would suggest that it was originally intended to accompany some dramatic occasion.
Arnold Bax is steadily catching up Sibelius in the number of symphonies he has written. Six symphonies now stand to Bax's credit. No. 4 is dated October, 1930-February, 1931, and, like the Third Symphony, the greater part of its composition was done at Morar, Inverness-shire, but a part of the first movement was sketched out at Glencolumcille, in Donegal. Dedicated to Paul Corder , it is scored for a large modern orchestra, including six horns and organ, and is constructed much in the same style as the composer's other symphonies.
Tickets can be obtained from [address removed], and usual agents. Prices (including Entertainments Tax): 7s. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved), 3s. (unreserved), promenade (payment at doors only) 2s.

' The Labour Party '
The Rt. Hon. Margaret Bondfield
Margaret Bondfield is one of the most vital women of our time. She was Labour Member for Northampton from 1923 to 1924, and repre- sented Wallsend in the House of Commons from 1926 to 1931. From 1929 to 1931 she was Minister of Labour, and has been a Privy Councillor since 1929.
She was a propagandist connected with the Independent Labour Party before the Labour Party was formed, and was one of the speakers to the resolution at the Trades Union Congress at Plymouth at which the. formation of the Labour Party was determined upon. She has been constantly engaged in propaganda for the Party and has taken part in all General Elections and most by-elections since 1918. She is now National Officer of the National Union of General and Municipal Workers.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
