: A RECITAL

by The Menges String Quartet :
0 Isolde Menges (violin)
Beatrice Carrelle (violin)
John Yewe Dyer (viola)
Ivor James (violoncello)
In 1905 W. W. Cobbett instituted the first of his series of chamber music competitions, 'mainly designed ' (in his own words) ' to bring to light the talents of young British composers and to encourage the occasional adoption of a short form of ensemble music..... The subject of the first competition was the composition of a "Phantasy" in the form of a string quartet, the piece to be of short duration and performed without a break, but, if the composer desired, to consist of different sections varying in tempo and metre.' There were sixty-seven competitors, and the first prize went to W. Y. Hurlstone. The second prize, however, was won by Frank Bridge with the Quartet that is to be played this evening.

ORCHESTRA
Conducted by CHARLES SHADWELL
Presented by JOHN SHARMAN
Listeners will welcome the Two Leslies in their first broadcast in Music-Hall since Sarony was a bride-groom and Holmes his best man. And many of them will remember that in Turner Layton 's last Music-Hall he brought down the house with ' Home is Best '. He was in hospital for many months last year and Archibald Haddon came to see him. Layton happened to say: 'Home is best.' 'There's a song!' cried Haddon, who wrote the words and Layton the music. It is proving one of his biggest hits.
Leslie Weston , the * Gag Auctioneer ', who writes all his own songs, began his professional career as a conjuror, and drew 7s. 6d. for his first engagement. In course of time he went from magic to mirth.
Bunny Doyle , fra' Yorkshire, had just finished pantomime in Birmingham when he gave his first broadcast in Music-Hall last month.
Bertha Willmott , of ' Old Music-
Halls' fame, is always sure of a welcome.

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.
