: THE DAILY SERVICE

from page 113 of 'New Every Morning

: 'UNDER LONDON'

' Railways'
F. L. Stevens
One of the most interesting of London's underground railways is the tube privately owned by the Post Office, which runs all day and includes a three-minute service over the 61 miles between Liverpool Street and Paddington, serving the post offices between. Mr. Stevens is to bring to the- microphone a P.O. official to explain some of the devices of this remarkable train service, which runs trains without drivers or guards.
He will also discuss the London
Tubes and the District and Metropolitan Railways, all under the London Passenger Transport Board. He will speak, among other things, of walking along the line to work, of the new station to be opened at Aldgate, and of the official rat catchers.

Quartet:

Reginald Paul (pianoforte)
D'Indy, Cesar Franck 's favourite pupil, for many years held a leading place in the French world of music, as composer, teacher, and author. He succeeded Franck in 1890 as President of the National Society of Music. A man of immense industry and the highest ideals, he did more for the music of his own day and country than it would be easy to
'reckon, and his compositions range over a very wide field. Essentially French, his music springs from the best impulses of the romantic movement though his own character was too strong to be very much influenced from outside sources.
His compositions include about a dozen chamber works. One of the earliest was the Piano Quartet, Op. 7, which was composed in 1887. It is very typical of d'Indy's style, showing fresh melodic invention and scholarly workmanship.

In 1854 Schumann told the twenty-two-year-old Brahms that it was his ' duty ' to write a symphony. Brahms set to work, but soon declared that the attempt was a miserable failure, for ' a symphony is no laughing matter nowadays '. At last, after twenty-two more years of careful thought and experimenting, he completed his Symphony No. 1 in C minor, which was hailed as a worthy successor to Beethoven's ' Ninth '. Hardly had the applause of the world of music died down when Brahms produced his Symphony No. 2 in D.
Although this latter symphony is conceived on just as big a scale as the C minor Symphony, the texture of the music is actually very much clearer, the melodies more cantabile in character, and the whole spirit of the music brighter-it has been called Brahms's ' Pastoral ' Symphony.
Tickets can be obtained from the British Broadcasting Corporation, Broadcasting House, Portland Place, W.1, Messrs. Chappell's Box Office, Queen's Hall, Langham Place, W.1, and the usual Agents. Prices : Is. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved), 3s. (unreserved), promenade (payment at doors ollly), 2s.

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.
