: IN YOUR GARDEN'

@ C. H. Middleton
April may not mean the hard work of March, but it certainly gives no rest to the gardener. Sowing of salads, spraying of fruit trees, planting of summer-flowering bulbs, staking and tying of perennialsthere are a hundred and one things to do. All the more useful then will be C. H. Middleton 's broadcast today when he will give listeners some hints for April.

The BBC Chorus (Section A)
Conductor, Leslie Woodgate
1 And they came to a place named
Gethsemane
2 The Agony
3 Processional to Calvary
4 And when they were come to the place called Calvary
5 The mystery of the divine humiliation
6 He made Himself of no reputation
7 The majesty of the divine humiliation
8 And as Moses lifted up the serpent
9 God so loved the world
10 Litany of the Passion
11 Jesus said, Father, forgive them 12 So Thou liftest Thy divine petition
13 The mystery of Intercession
14 And one of the malefactors
15 The adoration of the Crucified
16 When Jesus therefore saw His
Mother
17 Is it nothing to you ?
18 The appeal of the Crucified
19 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished
20 For the love of Jesus

There are some ^ seven thousand of these Roman Catholic Sisters taking part in this work.

(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Constant Lambert
Jean Pougnet (violin) ORCHESTRA
Honegger's ' Summer Pastoral' is a quiet little nature impression, headed by a poetical quotation: ' I have embraced the summer dawn.' It is scored for a small orchestra, consisting of flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, and strings. JEAN POUGNET AND ORCHESTRA ORCHESTRA
JEAN POUGNET AND ORCHESTRA Romance (Album Leaf) Wagner, arr. Wilhelmj ORCHESTRA Overture, A May Night Rimsky-Korsakov Gogol's collection of short stories, ' Evenings on a farm near Dikanka ', has been a fruitful source of inspiration to Russian opera composers. Mussorgsky's Fair at Sorochintsy, Tchaikovsky's Vakula the Smith, Rimsky-Korsakov's A May Night and Christmas Eve-all these works are based on Gogot's delightful, humorous-fantastic tales of village life in the Ukraine. ' A May Night' had been a favourite tale of Rimsky-Korsakov's from childhood ; he read it with his lady-love on the day he proposed to her ; and it was his wife who finally persuaded him to make an opera of it. The opera (written in 1878) was Korsakov's second and, as listeners will gather from the overture, is one of his most tuneful and lyrical compositions, by no means depending on orchestral colour for its effect.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE ROYAL EAST SUSSEX HOSPITAL,
HASTINGS by JOHN GIELGUD
The Royal East Sussex Hospital was opened in 1841 and has been the principal source of relief of the sick and suffering in Hastings and East Sussex ever since. Twice rebuilt, the hospital now stands in large grounds overlooking the sea, and contains accommodation for 143 in-patients, out-patient consulting rooms, orthopaedic gymnasium, massage and electrical rooms, pathological laboratories, ophthalmic wards, modern operating theatres, and a very beautiful children's ward, surrounded by balconies. Last, but not least, there is a modern home for the nursing staff.
But unhappily there is a shortage of £31,000, mainly on maintenance account, and unless this sum is speedily forthcoming the service given by the hospital must necessarily be restricted. Last year alone 2,281 in-patients were admitted, and the 12,924 out-patients were treated no fewer than 76,189 times. Nor should it be overlooked that patients from homes all over the country were admitted to the hospital as the result of illness or accident while they were on holiday or on business in the district.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed].

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.
