: ' THE NOBLE ART '

Ⓓ With echoes from the old-time Prize Fights and from the modem
Boxing Ring
The Corinthians ; Champions of Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow
Written by Martin Stephens
Produced by John Richmond
(Empire Programme)
The programme falls roughly into three parts. The first deals with the period of the old Corinthians broadly defined as full-blooded and well-to-do amateurs, who were the backbone of sporting England at the beginning of the last century. There will be a reconstruction of a fight of this period-the period of bare fists and of fights of unlimited length.
The second part presents an imaginary scene in the parlour of a Welsh colliery home. The whole family are sitting up to hear the broadcast of the Farr-Louis fight. They exchange reminiscences about some of the famous matches they have seen in the past, such as Jimmy Wilde 's first fight in London, Dempsey v. Tunney in Chicago. This leads up to a reconstruction of the scene when Bob Fitzsimmons was first discovered in a boxing booth in New Zealand. This part ends with the start of the Farr-Louis broadcast.
The last part is set in a boys' club in Bermondsey-an imaginary scene showing the boxers of tomorrow in the making. The whole is linked with excerpts from the history of the Ring and recollections of famous personalities.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section D)
Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Pierre Fournier (violoncello) 1 Prelude. 2 Sicilienne. 3 La
Tromba (The Trumpet). 4 Plainte. 5 Air de Diable (The Devil's Air)
Pierre Fournier studied, at the Paris
Conservatoire and subsequently appeared as soloist with all the leading symphony orchestras in Paris and more recently with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. He broadcast in this country for the first time in 1935, and again in January this year.
Dvorak's Symphonic Variations were originally composed in 1877 and numbered Op. 40, then apparently forgotten for ten years even by the composer himself. They were resuscitated and revised in 1887, and sent to Richter, who produced them in London in May of that year. After the performance, the conductor wrote to the composer: ' I cannot remember a novelty having such a great success at any concert I have conducted '.
The variations — twenty-eight in number-are essentially melodic (like Elgar's ' Enigma '), not harmonic-structural variations on the lines of Beethoven's greatest sets and those of Brahms-a fact that did not in the least interfere with Brahms's admiration of this Dvorak work. (Conducted by the Composer)
Born in London in 1909, Herbert Murrill was trained at the Royal Academy of Music, where he is now on the staff, and at Oxford University, where he took the Bachelor of Music degree. He was President of the Oxford University Musical Club. His ballet, Picnic, was produced at the Crouch Festival, 1927, and his jazz-opera, Alan in Cage, was performed at the Royal Academy of Music and at the Grafton Theatre, London, in 1930. His piano Sonatina was played at a concert organised by the Contemporary Music Centre, and his song cycle, Self-Portrait', was given at a concert in Florence, immediately following the International Contemporary Musical Festival in 1934. 'A Capriccio for cello and piano has been .twice broadcast, and among his more recent works is a Concerto for cello and orchestra.
One of his latest successes is his
Three Hornpipes, which he conducted at a recent Promenade Concert. Tomorrow listeners will have the opportunity of hearing some of his piano music.

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

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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
