Leader, Harold Fairhurst
Conductor, Richard Austin
Solo pianoforte, Harriet Cohen from the Pavilion, Bournemouth
Falla's 'Nights in the Gardens of Spain' was completed in 1916 and first heard in England in 1921. According to the composer, ' the themes employed are based on the rhythms, modes, cadences, and ornamental figures which distinguished the popular music of Andalucia, although they are rarely used in their original forms ; and the orchestration frequently employs, and employs in a tonventional manner, certain effects peculiar to the popular instruments Tised in those parts of Spain. The music has no pretensions to being descriptive: it is merely expressive. But something more than the sounds of festivals and dances has inspired these " evocations in sound ", for melancholy and mystery have their part also '.

: A RECITAL

by Edward Reach (tenor)
Edward Reach owes his success not only to the quality of his voice but to the extremely scholarly interpretation he gives to his large repertoire. He was trained in London on the p.ure old Italian method of Bel canto, and has sung with most of the choral and orchestral societies in the United Kingdom. For three successive years he was soloist at the Three Choirs Festival, and he has sung for the London Bach Choir and the Royal Choral Society, and at the Promenade Concerts.
Reach broadcasts regularly in many types of programme from Bach to ballads, from light opera to grand opera, and with most of the BBC permanent orchestras. ' Loveliest Maiden, Jewel Rare', which is included in his programme tonight, is an aria from Colin Macleod Campbell 's new opera Maid Marian. This will be its first broadcast.

Chang Peng-chun (P. C Chang), Professor of Philosophy at Nankai

(A Recording)
There are few men living more capable of describing the intellectual emancipation 'of China than Dr.
Chang, who is one of the most distinguished thinkers and educationists in the Far East.
Dr. Chang has recently been in Europe to assess Western opinion on events in the Far East, though as recently as January he was in Chung-king, capital of China today. He had to leave for the United States before the broadcast this evening, and his talk has, therefore, had to be recorded.
Professor C. K. Webster , who will question Dr. Chang throughout the broadcast, will introduce him at the microphone, and begin the talk.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
