: ONE PIANO-FOUR HANDS

.Alec Rowley and Edgar Moy
Adolf Jensen (1837-1879), had a strong individuality and a delicate and poetic muse. The best of his raany charming songs and pieces for piano duet deserve to be heard frequently. For instance, there is the magnificent but lengthy song-cycle ' Gaudeamus', which for wit, humour and picturesque music would be 'difficult to equal in its kind.
The present group of his pieces will give listeners a good idea of his charming, lyrical style.

C. H. Middleton
This evening one of the most popular of all broadcasters returns to the microphone after a ten weeks' rest. However, a gardener's holiday is very like a busman's and, as listeners will hear, C. H. Middleton too has been ' in other gardens'. He will tell them about some of the most interesting things he has seen there, and also talk about some seasonable activities : pruning ramblers, raspberries, and currants, and so on.

: Return to Brighton

Devised by Igor Vinogradoff and H. L. Morrow
This programme is based on the story of Brighton in its infancy and boisterous youth. It starts with the remote fishing village where a few invalids gathered to bathe and drink sea-water and milk, and ends with the rollicking splendours of Regency days, and the arrival of the first railway train
Production by H. L. Morrow
Brighthelmstone, of course, is one of the old names of Brighton-or, rather, one of the forty-five, variants of the Saxon name for it. The more modern ' Brighton' came into use early in the eighteenth century but did not finally displace the other name for quite a century.
Brighthelmstone began its rise to fame in the middle of the eighteenth century, thanks to an eminent physician - Dr. Richard Russell —- who began sending his patients there for the salt-water cure. He is commemorated in some verses by one of his sons, beginning :
( Brighthelmstone was confess'd by all
T'abound with females fair,
But more so since fam'd Russell has Prefer'd the water there.'
Then thirty years or so later the Prince of Wales, afterwards George IV, discovered the place and after that the history of Brighton is more or less the history of the private life of the First Gentleman in Europe.

Fernando Germani (organ)
Fernando Germani was born in Rome twenty-six years ago. Practically self-taught, he began as a _ pianist, but later became interested in the organ with such success that eventually he was asked to join the staff of the Royal Academy of Santa Cecilia, and of the Royal Conservatoire of Music, at Rome.
His international reputation was the result of a chance meeting in Rome with Dr. Alexander Russell , Concert Director of the Wanamaker Organisation of New York and Philadelphia. A series of American and Canadian tours followed, and then upon Lynwood Farnam's death, at the age of twenty-five, Germani was appointed chief of the Organ Department of the Curtis Institute, Philadelphia.

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.
