: ENGLISH AND AMERICAN SONGS

A recital by Arthur Fear (baritone)
Born at Blaina, Monmouthshire, in 1902, Arthur Fear has had a romantic career. Winning a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music, he studied there under Thomas Meux , and after singing in a students' performance of Falstaff was unanimously hailed by critics. He was at once engaged by the British National Opera Company, and later at Covent Garden. He is now recognised as one of the finest baritones in the country, and has secured great successes in America.

: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Kendall Taylor
Sonata in F sharp, Op. 78 Beethoven
1 Adagio cantabile-Allegro ma non troppo. 2 Allegro vivace
Kendall Taylor 's father, Maurice Taylor , was a well-known North-Country cellist, and most of his son's early years were spent in a musical atmosphere. When only twelve years old he played the Mozart Piano Concerto in D minor with the Harrogate Orchestra. He entered the Royal College of Music in 1922, winning many medals, and was awarded on leaving the medal of the Worshipful Company of Musicians. He has broadcast regularly since 1927 and appeared with many of the leading orchestras. He joined the teaching staff of the Royal College of Music in 1929.

: SCHUBERT

A recital by May Blyth (soprano) and Ilona Kabos and Louis Kentner
(pianoforte duets)
ILONA KABOS AND LOUIS KENTNER
Fantasia in F minor
MAY BLYTH
Am Strome (By the River) Die Forelle (The Trout)
Grablied fiir die Mutter (A dirge) Ganymed
ILONA KABOS AND LOUIS KENTNER
Two Marches
1 March in G minor, Op. 40,
No. 2.
2 Characteristic March in C, Op.
121, No. 1
Most of Schubert's piano duets were composed for his friends, who usually played them with the composer as partner. Many of these pieces were written ' just for the fun of the thing '. This is particularly true of those on a smaller scale, such as the marches and polonaises. With few exceptions these are happy and care-free compositions, breathing the atmosphere of the gay circles in which the composer moved.
A more serious note is struck in the larger works, such as the F minor Fantasia dedicated to Schubert's young pupil, Countess Caroline Esterhazy, with whom (according to romantic legend) he was in love.
With Schubert the word ' fantasia ' does not necessarily indicate a loose, rambling composition; like the ' Wanderer ' Fantasia for piano solo, the F minor is one of his most important instrumental works.

: 'SILLY SEASON'

or ' The Gosapher of Glenbogie' by Robert Barr
Cast
Other parts played by Stephen Jack (by permission of Drury Lane Theatre), William Ashley , Philip Wade , Phil Ray , James McPhee ,
Stella Bonheur , Audrey Cameron
Production by Robert Kemp
Here is the story of a rare silly-season phenomenon, the sort of thing at which news editors eagerly grasp in this arid month when every routine source of news has closed down.
It is a letter from a Highland clergyman that sets the wheels turning. The reverend gentleman has seen a brand new kind of ghost -a Gosapher, in fact, four times larger than a bull. and possessed of an uncanny gift of telling the truth.
Interviewed in Glenbogie the Gosapher gives tongue with a vengeance, with the result that weeks of copy are provided for the Press, and not a little money made.

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.
