: His Excellency The United States Ambassador

at Boston, Lincolnshire
Speech by The Hon. Joseph P. Kennedy on the occasion of the opening of the American Rest Room at Fydell House during the annual visit of representatives from Boston, Massachusetts, broadcast from Fydell House
In 1931, the Tercentenary of the founding of Boston, Massachusetts, American Bostonians gave £11,000 for the reconstruction of Boston Stump, the famous old Parish Church at Boston, Lincolnshire - the church of which Canon A.M. Cook, whose article appears on page 7, is Vicar.
When the Americans made this gift, they asked that there should be held at Boston an annual reception for American Bostonians on the third Sunday in July - the anniversary of the sailing of thirty-three emigrants to America in 1630. These emigrants included the first four Governors of Massachusetts. The Pilgrim Trust gave £500 for the reconstruction of Fydell House at Boston, Lincolnshire, and the English Speaking Union are associated with the upkeep of the American rest-room at the house. The United States Ambassador, whose speech listeners will hear, will be at Boston, Lincs., for the annual visit of representatives of Boston, Mass., to the mother town. This is his first broadcast since he was appointed to London.

Lennox Berkeley was born in 1903 at Boar's Hill, near Oxford. He left Oxford in 1926 with a B.A. degree, and did not begin studying music seriously until then. From 1926 until 1932 he studied music in Paris with Nadia Boulanger , and in 1936 he returned to England. His published works include three sets of piano pieces, a string quartet, a violin sonata, songs, an oratorio, Jonah .
Berkeley's Concertino, for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and piano, to be heard this evening, was composed in 1937. Of the three movements, the first and third are notable for their highly accented and percussive style, while the slow movement is by contrast contrapuntal and rather severe. The piano is used, in turn, as part of the general texture, as accompaniment, and as a solo instrument.

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.
