: Gwen Lewis's Entertainers SOUTHSEA REVELS'

The cast includes
Nancy Linn
Joan Pendlcton
Peter Mosley
Billy Harris
John Francis
Gwen Lewis
Introduced by Harry S. Pepper
Well known on the Midland and Welsh wavelengths, the Gwen Lewis Entertainers will come to the microphone this evening in one of their characteristic concert-party programmes. This will actually be the second broadcast of the Southsea Revels, who were first heard in July, 1937.
Gwen Lewis herself is the only woman who presents, manages, and performs in her own company. She started doing this in 1926 at Broad-stairs, and has thereafter presented her shows at Sandown, Ventnor, Ilfracombe, Cheltenham, and finally Southsea, where the party has played for the last three years. The concert party may be said to be a show of personalities rather than one relying on costumes and effects. Many numbers in the repertoire have been written and composed by Gwen Lewis herself, and in this afternoon's broadcast listeners will hear one of her songs, 'Thank you, dear '. This will be sung by Peter Mosley , the baritone of the company.

Joseph Szigeti (violin)
The BBC Symphony Orchestra
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor,
SIR ADRIAN BOULT
Allegro moderato-Quasi andante —Allegro impetuoso
Solo violin, JOSEPH SZIGETI
Busoni's Violin Concerto was written in 1896-7 when the composer was thirty years of age. Like the Comedy
Overture, it represents Busoni's earlier style of writing, which paid respects to the style of,the classical masters such as Mozart and Beethoven. Its form follows the lines of Liszt's concertos, consisting of - three movements which play without a break and are all based on the same thematic material. Furthermore, in Busoni s Concerto the solo part is by no means ' showy' in the usual concerto manner.

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.
