: The Lord Mayor's Show

From 12.0-1.0 there will be a programme of dance music on gramophone records, which will be interrupted for a commentary on the Lord Mayor's Procession by Stewart MacPherson from the Mansion House.

From a position high up on the roof of the Mansion House, the Lord Mayor's home, Stewart MacPherson will give listeners his impressions of the pomp and panoply below as London's greatest free show sets out on its journey to the Law Courts. The Londoner is well accustomed to the civic splendour of the Show, but how will it strike the eyes of a Canadian seeing it for the first time?

Stewart MacPherson is, of course, that Canadian, and listeners who know his commentaries may expect some lively reactions.

A serial reading from Herman
Melville's ' Moby Dick ', by Geoffrey Tandy
At last a school of whales is sighted. The mates of the Pequod get their boats manned, and then to the astonishment of the whole crew Ahab appears surrounded by ' five dusky phantoms' whom they have seen nowhere in the ship before. They man the spare boat for Ahab, and, all boats lowering away, the chase begins.

The Reginald Paul Pianoforte
Quartet:
George Stratton (violin)
Watson Forbes (viola)
John Moore (violoncello)
Reginald Paul (pianoforte)
In his early days Strauss began writing music in the classical tradition and one of his models was Brahms, whose influence is fairly strong in Strauss's early music. Strauss's compositions of this period include a symphony, a violin concerto, a violin sonata, and the string quartet in C minor, which was composed in 1883-4, to be heard this afternoon. Although displaying little or nothing of Strauss's real individuality, the String Quartet is a charming and finely written work.

: THE LORD MAYOR'SBANQUET

Reception of distinguished guests by the Lord Mayor in Guildhall
Library
A description of the scene by Olga Collett from Guildhall
The Lord Mayor's Banquet at the Guildhall is unquestionably the greatest civic occasion in the City of London's year. Tonight Mrs. Olga Collett , herself a daughter-in-law of a recent Lord Mayor, will be in the Guildhall Library, where the Prime Minister and his wife and all the other dignitaries are received in a setting of antiquity and splendour. Mrs. Collett will describe the reception and the forming of the procession before it moves into the Guildhall itself. The Prime Minister's speech will be broadcast later in the evening.

: THE BBC SYMPHONYCONCERTS

Season 193S-9
Fourth Concert from Queen's Hall, London
(Sole Lesees, Messrs. Chappell and Co. Lid.)
The BBC Symphony Orchestra
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Eugene Goossens
In his analysis of this symphony Sir George Grove suggests that ' Beethoven must have been inspired by the very genius of happiness when he conceived and worked out the many beautiful themes of this joyous composition, and threw in the spirited and graceful features which so adorn them. The work is animated throughout by a youthful exhilaration more akin to that which pervades Mendelssohn's " Italian " Symphony than anything else we can recall-in the Adagio by real passion. Such times were rare in Beethoven's life, and we are fortunate in having so perfect an image of one of them preserved to us.'
The second part of this concert will be broadcast in the Regional programme at 9.20.
Tickets may 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 : 10s. to 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.
