Observations, reflections, acclamations, and criticisms by John Donelly , publican ; F. Elsom , linesman; Harry
I Green, roadman ; Oliver Knight , j gardener ; Herbert Mann , store-keeper ; Reginald Perry , painter; George Perry , ploughman ; Arthur Rolph , postman; Rev. S. Spray, vicar ; Humphrey Waterfield , artist
Ladies' point of view expressed by: Mrs. Norwood, Mrs. Rolph, Mrs.
Perry and Joan Sadler
Programme recorded in Essex by the BBC Mobile Recording Unit
Many readers of the RADIO TIMES will remember John Pudney 's article some weeks ago in which he described the coming of electricity to the remote Essex village in which he lives. Here is a programme recording that event, and it is a programme with a big and interesting difference. Inside the framework of Pudney's own script have been put the voices of the country folk whom the new electricity has affected. The villagers ' played ' splendidly, and the programme should provide first-rate comment on a phase of English country life.
In the television studios tonight listening to this programme will be some of the villagers who took part in it, so that the effect upon them of hearing their own voices will he seen by viewers.

: RACHMANINOFF

Sonata in G minor, Op. 19, for violoncello and pianoforte
1 Lento — Allegro moderato. 2 Allegro scherzando. 3 Andante. 4 Allegro mosso played by Antoni Sala (violoncello)
Gerald Moore (pianoforte)
Rachmaninoff's Sonata for cello and piano belongs to that group of fine works, such as the Symphony No. 2 in E minor and the Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, written at the turn of the present century, all of which show a curious thematic relationship, particularly in the case of the C minor Piano Concerto and the Cello Sonata.
The Cello Sonata is said to be one of the most popular of Rachmaninoff's compositions with his compatriots. It is beautifully written for both instruments, and the music is characteristically lyrical in style and sombre in mood.

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.
