: THE BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Leader, Alfred Barker
Conducted by H. Foster Clark
Harry Mortimer (trumpet)
King George I had formed the habit of attending certain masquerades on the Thames which, as a feature of those days, were organised usually on a subscription basis. On one occasion he expressed a wish that an aquatic concert might be planned on the same lines. There were initial difficulties with impresarios, who saw no profit in it for themselves, but, finally, Baron Kilmanseck, Master of the King's Horse, put up the money. The concert was a great success ; the river was crowded with barges, and afterwards there was a grand supper at Lord Ranelagh's house at Chelsea.
The King had already expressed high approval of the music composed specially for the occasion by the famous Handel, first composer of the King's music, and commanded it to be repeated once before and once after supper. Each performance took an hour, so that the King did not get back to St. James's till half-past four the next morning. This is an arrangement by Sir Hamilton Harty of. some of the numbers from the complete Water Music.

: THE WORLD CONFERENCE OF THE SOCIETY OF FRIENDS

at Philadelphia
Rufus M. Jones , D.Litt., D.D.,
L1.D., D. Theol.
(From America)
A World Conference of the Society of Friends is now in session at Swarthmore College, near Philadelphia. the American city founded by William Penn and with so many Quaker associations. Among the thousand Quakers present are a hundred from Great Britain, and representatives of the Society from Australasia, Austria, China, Cuba, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, India, Jamaica, Japan, Madagascar, Mexico, Norway, Palestine, Sweden, and Switzerland, besides many from all parts of the United States and Canada. The gathering may therefore be looked upon as a step towards a ' 'World Society of Friends '.
The chief subjects before the Conference, on which international comrnlttees have prepared reports, are: the Spiritual Message of the Society of Friends ; the Individual Christian and the State Economic, Racial, and International Justice ; Education ; and International Co-operation.
Dr. Rufus M. Jones , who is chairman of the Conference (with R. Halfden-Nielsen , a Dane, and Paul D. Sturge of London as his colleagues), is a prominent figure in the religiou. life of America. He was
Professor of Philosophy at Haverford College, Pennsylvania, from 1904 to 1934, was Chairman of the American Friends Service Committee, which co-operated with British Quakers in relief and reconstruction work in Europe during and after the war, and is the author of a number of books on religious subjects.

: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

Music by Liszt
Etude transcendante in F minor
Sonetto del Petrarca, No. 104 0
Au bord d'une source (By a Spring-side)
Hungarian Rhapsody No. 9, in E flat
(Carnival at Pest)
Heroide-Elégiaque
Hungarian Rhapsody No. 10, in E
One of the greatest composers of nineteenth century piano music was Liszt. This is a fact that has still yet to be generally recognised, for in many quarters his name as a composer is still associated with the showy and rather tawdry pieces he wrote purely for the purpose of dazzling some of the - ignorant audiences of his day. Nevertheless, as the late Bernard van Dieren pointed out in an article on Liszt in the RADIO TIMES, ' In his early years of phenomenal success as a pianist he conceived the natural ambition to create works for his programmes that would show the possibilities his unheard-oftechnique suggested. Not that he heaped up difficulties that would baffle other -players ; he exploited novel effects which opened up a new world of sound. Thus he discovered aesthetic possibilities that had not been dreamt of before '.
The results of these possibilities can be seen in some of the pieces to be heard this afternoon, such as the first three items, all of which represent Liszt at his best.

: ' AS I LOOK BACK '

Commander A. B. Campbell
Commander A. B. Campbell is one of the most remarkable raconteurs the BBC has introduced to the public. He made his name as a broadcaster with his very first talk and he has added to his reputation with each succeeding one. Commander Campbell disdains the use of a script and talks into the microphone just as he talks to friends at his club. The result is delightful. He is a man with a distinguished war career on the sea, and altogether-he is now a publisher-his life has been an ideal one for a born talker such as he is. He has been in every part of the world, including the Arctic and Antarctic Circles, and has a happy knack of describing vividly the strange personalities and places he has seen.

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.

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.
