: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section C)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Julian Clifford
The ' Froissart ' Overture was the work with which Elgar made his first appearance at one of the great English Festivals-at Worcester in 1890. It thus did a good deal to spread his fame, and was probably the first of his larger works to arouse anything at all like the interest which was then his due.
At the head of the score there is a quotation from Keats : ' '.... when Chivalry lifted up her lance on high ' ; and Ernest Newman tells us that the Overture took shape in its composer's mind from that passage in Sir Walter Scott 's' Old Mortality', ', where Claverhouse speaks to Morton of his enthusiasm for the Froissart ' Chronicles '. The music is, indeed, eloquent of Elgar's idealised view of the old-world chivalry that Froissart presents to us with so much romance.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE HOLIDAY HOMES OF THE
CENTRAL ASSOCIATION FOR MENTAL
WELFARE by the Rt. Hon. Lord Justice SCOTT,
K.C.
The C.A.M.W. Homes scheme was started, on an experimental basis, in 1932, and it has met so great a need that in the current year no fewer than 3,800 weeks will be filled at the five Homes by patients and supervisory staffs from institutions and mental hospitals all over England and Wales, each party as a rule, staying for a fortnight. Two new Homes were opened this year, at Bognor Regis and at Weston-super-Mare. It is hoped, if funds permit, to open another one in 1940. Each Home costs approximately
£500 to adapt and furnish, and every penny of this has to be raised voluntarily.

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.
