: AN ORATORIO PROGRAMME

'Come, ye Blessed'
A meditation on the life to come
Compiled from the Oratorios and other sources by Joseph Lewis
The BBC Orchestra
(Section C)
Led by Laurance Turner
BBC Chorus
(Section B)
Chorus Master, Leslie Woodgate
Conducted by Joseph Lewis
Margaret Godley (soprano)
Bradbridge White (tenor)
Stanley Riley (bass)
Berkeley Mason (organ)
The music comprises items by Brahms, Gounod, Spohr, Walford Davies , Frederic d'Erlanger, and A. R. Gaul
This programme is a repetition of one given some months ago and belongs to the series devised by Joseph Lewis in the early days of broadcasting, when it was not practicable to broadcast complete long works, as a means to provide oratorio programmes with a central idea and a sense of continuity. Listeners may remember ' Comfortable Words', ' Our Father', and others in this series. The present programme comprises music which deals with the theme of the life beyond. The words of the separate pieces, when read together, make an interesting kind of libretto, and these are joined by modulation on the organ, composed by Berkeley Mason. Some of the works used in this programme include Gounod's Death and Life, d'Erlanger's Requiem, Gaul's Holy City, Brahms's Song of Destiny, Spohr's Last Judgment, and Parry's Blest Pair of Sirens.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE DEVONSHIRE ROYAL HOSPITAL,
BUXTON by VIOLET VANBRUGH
The Devonshire Royal Hospital at Buxton, a national hospital of 300 beds, is engaged exclusively in the treatment of rheumatic disorders, and is the largest voluntary hospital of its kind in this country.
Established as a charity in the middle of the sixteenth century, the present hospital was opened in 1859. From time to time many additions and alterations have been carried out, but now further modernisation and extension is essential if the hospital is to satisfy the demands made upon it. An active campaign of research into the causes of rheumatism is actively carried on in the specially staffed and equipped laboratories, and this unit when established in 1912 was the earliest attempt in this country to investigate rheumatic diseases in -hospital and laboratory combined. Four thousand patients from all parts of the British Isles are received for treatment each year, and last year more than 107,000 separate treatments were given.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed].

: THE WORTHING MUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA

Leader, Harry Lipman
Conductor, Herbert Lodge
Harry Welchman (baritone) from the Town Hall, Worthing
Herbert Lodge began his musical career as a double-bass . player. Having won a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music at an early age, he studied under Charles Winterbottom. Before long' he was playing in the Covent Garden Opera Orchestra, and in 1919 he joined the London Symphony and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestras. He has given double-bass recitals in London and the provinces and over the air. But, like Koussevitzky, Lodge was not content to remain a doublebassist ; he aspired to the baton. Even at eighteen he was conducting an amateur operatic society ; during the war he ran a symphony orchestra of his own ; in 1929 he succeeded Bainbridge Robinson as musical director of the Margate Municipal Orchestra, and in 1935 he became musical director of the Worthing Municipal Orchestra for the winter season. Since then he has conducted at Margate during the summer and at Worthing during the winter,

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.
