: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Lucy Scollick
Lucy Scollick used to broadcast from
Liverpool in the early days of radio
-days when artists there had to enter the studio through a cafe in Lord Street. She came to London ten years ago and has been broadcasting regularly ever since.
It is of great interest that she was one of the last of Fanny Davies pupils. On her advice she went to
Vienna for six months and gave her first London recital at the Wigmore
Hall on her return. She is well known for her solo recitals on the air and has also broadcast in sonata recitals with Hildegard Arnold , the cellist.

A serial reading by Eric Gillett
Napoleon was driven out of Russia, but the Rostov family suffered cruelly. Prince Andrew, in spite of Natasha's devoted nursing, died of his wounds, and Natasha's young brother, Petya, had been killed in the raid which set Pierre free. Pierre also learned that his own unhappy marriage had been brought to an end by the death of his wife.

: CONCERT, Part 2

A London Symphony
Vaughan Williams
1 Lento-Allegro risoluto, molto pesante. 2 Lento. 3 Scherzo (Nocturne) : Allegro vivace. 4 Andante con moto-Maestoso alia marcia (quasi lento)-Epilogue (Andante sostenuto)
Vaughan Williams 's ' London ' Symphony is actually a musical impression of London just before the war began, but it is equally descriptive of the great city as it is today. The first movement is thought to be descriptive of morning in the city ; the Westminster chimes are heard. The slow second movement is based largely on the plaintive melody which introduces it. The third movement is called a Scherzo, but that is by no means its feeling ; 'Nocturne' is a better title, for it is an impression of London by night, and even though the tempo is brisk, the music strikes a note of sadness and mystery. The fourth movement is full of bustling energy with a preponderating and majestic march tune. Later, after the chimes have been heard again, a solemn epilogue brings the symphony to a close.
Tickets may be obtained from [address removed], 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.
