: 'GOOD CORRESPONDENTS'

Eric Gillett
Scott considered Horace Walpole ' the best letter-writer in the English language ', Byron spoke of his letters as ' incomparable ', and Austin Dobson wrote that ' for diversity of interest and perpetual entertainment, for the constant surprises of an unique species of wit, for happy and unexpected turns of phrase, for graphic characterisation and clever anecdote, for playfulness, pungency, .irony, persiflage, there is nothing in English like his correspondence '.
' If the charm of Walpole's letters must be expressed in a single phrase, it is this: their author was the most delightful of gossips. Like a good many other very intelligent men, he had plenty of time for trivialities and gossiped as readably to his correspondents about a dinner or a piece of scandal as about a war or an earthquake.
Walpole himself was quite conscious of the worth of a good letter. ' Nothing ', he wrote, ' would give so just an idea of an age as genuine letters ; nay, history waits for its last seal from them '.

(Section C)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Florence Hooton (violoncello)
(First Broadcast Performance)
Born in London, York Bowen studied composition and the pianoforte at the Royal Academy of Music. Long ago recognised as a pianist of brilliant attainments, he is also a gifted composer. His own instrument has naturally been generously treated with three concertos and many smaller pieces, but he has done notable work for the orchestra too. His latest composition is the Rhapsody to be heard this evening.
Albert Roussel , born at Tourcoing in 1869, was educated at Tourcoing Naval College. In 1894 he left the Navy and decided to devote himself to music.
Accordingly he went to Paris and studied under Gigout, and two years later became one of Vincent d'Indy's first pupils at the newly-formed Schola Cantorum, where he was appointed a professor in 1902, and in 1904 he wrote his first symphony ' Le Poeme de la foret
During the war Roussel served with the Red Cross on the Marne, and then with the motor transport at Verdun and on the Somme. Since that time a number of important works have come from his pen, including three more symphonies, several chamber works, and the present Concerto for small orchestra. He died on August 23.

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
