by Grahame Clifford (baritone)
Songs by Granville Bantock
Praise ye the Lord
Six Jester Songs
1 The Jester. 2 In Tyme of Olde. 3 Will o' the Wisp. 4 Under the Rose. 5 Serenade. 6 Tra-la-lalie!
The Court of Dreams (Songs from the Chinese Poets)
The Feast of Lanterns
Sir Granville Bantock is a prolific composer, having turned his hand to practically every form of composition. Not least in importance are his songs, of which there is a considerable output. The Six Jester Songs were written about 1900, during Bantock's early years as principal of the Birmingham and Midland Institute of Music. They ' are perhaps due to a wish on Bantock's part', says H. Orsmond Anderton, ' to enlarge his range and break loose from, the Oriental manner, which he may have felt was in danger of becoming a mannerism. They are not in Bantock's own characteristic vein. They are light-hearted for the most part, though the jester is the pathetic figure who has become a tradition since the fool in King Lear, and who carries a sore heart under his motley..... Altogether, if the humorous, quasi-antique style is not the most characteristic manner either of Bantock or his wife, who wrote the words, the songs are pleasant trifles, musicianly of their kind, and with a sure appeal to many whom the profounder songs would leave untouched.'

'News Reels'

The news reel is an indispensable part of every cinema programme. So great indeed is the fascination that news has for all of us that cinemas devoted mainly to the showing of news reels have sprung up in the last year or two everywhere. Listeners therefore will look forward to hearing today's broadcast by Gerald Sanger , who is the managing editor of one of the leading news reels in this country. He will talk about the way in which news events are recorded and some of the unsuspected difficulties of his work.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
