For the first time this term poetry is to take the place of prose, and teachers especially may like to know the poems that are to be broadcast: ' Love the Baby' by James Elroy Flecker ; ' The Bells of Heaven ' by Ralph Hodgson ; ' Milk for the Cat' (a vivid description of a cat drinking its fill and then going to sleep) by Harold Monro ; ' Jenny Wren ' (pointing out how queer it is that the smallest bird of all has such a large voice) by W. H. Davies ; ' Pibroch of Donuil Dhu ' (ballad of a Scottish chieftain) by Sir Walter Scott ; and Mrs. Kamschatka's ' Washing Day ', a humorous rhymed story, by E. J. Coning. It is of interest that this last is taken from Aunt Judy 's Magazine, one of the earliest of children's magazines.

' Great Britain'
A discussion between
E. M. Forster and Captain A M. Ludovici
Chairman, Wilson Harris
So far in this series various European countries have been discussed by authoritative speakers. We now come round to our own land. Last week R. C. K. Ensor discussed the problem in relation to Great Britain, and was asked questions by Wilson Harris. This week listeners are to hear a discussion between Captain
A. M. Ludovici , the author of many well-known books upon political and philosophic themes, including 'A Defence of Aristocracy', 1915, and E. M. Forster , the distinguished novelist and the first President of the Council for Civil Liberties. Wilson Harris , who has acted as interlocutor throughout the series, will be speaking again, this time as Chairman.

: THE BBC CONCERTS OF CONTEMPORARY MUSIC —6

To be given before an audience in the Concert Hall, Broadcasting House
Dennis Noble (baritone)
Alan Bush (pianoforte)
The BBC Men's Chorus
(Chorus master, Leslie Woodgate )
The BBC Orchestra
(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Concerto for pianoforte and orchestra, with baritone solo and male voice chorus in the last movement. Text by Randall Swingler
Alan Bush
1 Con moto moderato ma deciso. 2 Con vivacita ma non troppo allegro. 3 Grave-Allegro vigoroso
(Solo pianoforte, ALAN BUSH. Solo baritone, DENNIS NOBLE)
Alan Bush was born in London in 1900, studied at the Royal Academy of Music where he is now a professor, and was a pupil of John Ireland for composition. His ' Dance Overture ' and String Quartet, ' Dialectic ', were broadcast for the first time in 1935, and his Concert Piece for cello aM piano was broadcast in March, 1937.
The Concerto for piano and orchestra, with baritone solo and male voice chorus is his most recent and most important work to date. It is in three movements, and the choir makes its entry in the last, which is in the form of a Rondo. The solo part is a virtuoso part throughout, with the exception of the last movement, when the piano is subordinated to the chorus and soloist. The composer's intention is to bring his work into line with life, and to link it up with some of the problems of existence in the social community of today ; and the role of the chorus is to do this by making a direct appeal to the audience. Thus their opening words are: 'Friends, we would speak a little of this performance', and the work ends with a forecast of the future and a reference to ' things to come

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.
