: THE BBC MILITARY BAND

Conductor, P. S. G. O'Donnell
Frank Titterton (tenor)
William Wallace 's symphonic poem ' Villon ' is an orchestral commentary upon passages from the poems of Villon, a French poet of the fifteenth century. In England he has found a large number of translators, of whom may be mentioned Swinburne and Rossetti, while Henley and Stevenson have, each in his own way, discussed his work.
The symphonic poem falls into four sections. The first is in the form of a Scherzo which represents Villon's wayward nature. The second is a slow movement which suggests the famous ' Ballade of Dead Ladies '. The third is based upon another ballade made at the request of the poet's mother to pray to ' Nostre-Dame '. The last section reflects the riotous call of Paris, an echo of past youth, back again to the gaiety of Paris, and then the chime of a clock and, as darkness falls, the prayer is heard and the music ends peacefully.

: BIRD SONG

broadcast from a Surrey wood
As listeners know, the venue of the last bird-song broadcast was changed from the Suffolk wood to the wood in Surrey from which admirable broadcasts were given last year. The microphone will take up its position there again this evening, and it is hoped that the cuckoo, delightful as it was, will not be quite so curious or persistent, and that more warblers will he heard.
A quarter of an hour broadcast of bird song is always a chancy thing-an aeroplane, a dog, a fox may interfere (a fox actually did recently). The second nightingale broadcast was a great success, by the way-two songsters of the night answering each other beautifully.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE LONDON ORPHAN SCHOOL AND
ROYAL BRITISH ORPHAN SCHOOL,
Watford, Herts by GORDON RICHARDS
The School was established as far back as 1813 and since that date 11,668 children have been received from all parts of the British Empire.
Four hundred and sixty-five boys and girls are now in the school, and are being fed, clothed, and given a secondary boarding-school education up to Matriculation standard. Each boy and girl on leaving is provided with an outfit, and, whenever possible, is placed in a suitable post.
£30,000 is required for general purposes each year. The champion jockey, who is giving this appeal, hopes to ride his first Derby winner on Wednesday, and to be on yet another winner this evening.
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.

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