(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Julian Clifford
Gounod's Polyeucte, an opera based on Corneille's tragedy of the Roman centurion-martyr, was produced in Paris half a century ago, when Gounod was sixty. It was one of his favourite works, and shortly before he died he said that even if his other operas, Faust included, were to perish, he wished that Polyeucte might live. His hope was never gratified, for Polyeucte has not kept in the repertory. The ballet is amongst the best of its music.

: GREAT OCCASIONS IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS

Igor Vinogradoff
The first broadcast in this series showed the House of Commons at a grave moment, when personal interests counted for nothing and members were united in a common purpose. But the House of Commons is two-fold: on the one hand it debates upon, and decides, great issues ; on the other hand it is an assembly with traditions and rules of its own. Whatever may be a man's success in the outside world, the glamour of his reputation counts for nothing when he first becomes a Member of Parliament. He is judged by what he says and the way he says it when he rises to make his maiden speech.
The debate dealt with in tonight's broadcast was certainly a momentous one. Life or death for millions of Irishmen was at stake. There was a widespread potato famine which deprived them of their normal cheap diet and compelled them to buy bread. But the duty on corn had raised the price of flour.
Although his party was pledged to the maintenance of that duty, Sir Robert Peel , the Prime Minister, had decided in favour of its repeal. Listeners will hear how in a great speech he defended himself in the conflict between parliamentary tradition and his own sense of right. But the importance of the occasion was also that member of the House, whose maiden speech had been received with jeers and hoots, made a parliamentary attack on the Prime Minister so bitter and so brilliant that it helped to make that member's reputation. Listeners will hear one of the famous speeches which lifted Mr. Disraeli into the limelight and indicated the Prime Ministership of the future Lord Beaconsfield.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE METROPOLITAN HOSPITAL,
LONDON, E.8, by The Right Hon.
THE LORD MAYOR OF London,
Sir GEORGE BROADBRIDGE , K.C.V.O.
The Metropolitan Hospital was founded in the City of London in 1836, and was rebuilt fifty years later on its present site, where it serves a large poor area of North-East London. Its patients are received not only from the surrounding district, which includes Hackney, Hoxton, Shoreditch, Stoke Newing ton, Bethnal Green, and Islington, but also from far-distant towns in every part of Britain.
There are 150 beds and very large casualty and out-patient departments, hut even so, this accommodation has become inadequate to satisfy demands made upon it by a constantly increasing population. It has become imperative to provide additional beds and larger departments generally. An appeal for £80,000 has therefore been launched to defray the cost of erecting a centenary extension on a vacant site adjoining the present hospital.
When the scheme is completed, in about eighteen months' time, the sick poor of North-East London will have in their midst a large voluntary hospital fully able to cope with all the calls made upon it. The Lord Mayor of London, who will broadcast this appeal, is President of the Hospital.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

: THE BBC THEATRE ORCHESTRA

Conductor, Stanford Robinson Prelude
Portrait of Lord Melbourne on a Horse
Victoria and Albert
The Queen's Caprice Victoria Regina
Anthony Collins , who was first principal viola of the London Symphony Orchestra, is a composer and conductor of exceptional gifts. It, was something of a compliment that he should be selected by Herbert Wilcox to write the music for one of the outstanding films of the year, Victoria the Great. Mr. Collins's music has already received the highest praise from American critics when I'ittoria the Great was first shown in New York. Herbert Wilcox was the first to recognise the importance of the composer being allowed to have his head, and the result was that Mr. Collins's music is given an important part in the film instead of merely being relegated to the background.
The Suite to be played is made up of music taken from the Jubilee, Coronation, attempted assassination, and one or two of the more intimate scenes.

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.
