: The Gershom Parkington Quintet

THERE is at )east one man who can recall the first production of Andre Wormser 's Biblical mime-drama, The Prodigal Son, in London, with a good deal of pleasure. He is Sir Landon Ronald , who had his first professional engagement, and made a name for himself, as the pianist who played the extremely important accompanying piano music to the miming action on the stage. Ronald was then a more boy of about eighteen, and his brilliant performance was as much discussed as the nature of the wordless play he accompanied. The Prodigal Son ran for many months, and was later revived. The music is expressive, admirable for its purpose, and charming quite apart from the stage. Except for this work, Wormser's compositions are known hardly at all in this country. Ho won the Prix do Rome as a student, and composed several operas—but mostly early in his career. He died in 1926, aged seventy-four.

Mr. H. B. DRAKE : ' Korea and Formosa '
KOREA ... ' a land of sodden valleys and ghostly hills ... grotesquely pinnacled ... and then under a perfect sky such a splendour of form and glory of colour that for a sustained landscape seemed impossible to rival.....' Formosa, the island beautiful, land of head-hunters and fantastic mountains—such are tho romantic subjects of this traveller from the East. The names of neither mean much to Eng\ish ears. The Korean Peninsular, as the Scene of a disastrous earthquake in 1923 may linger in the memories of some, but Formosa, so christened by an ecstatic Portuguese mariner, remains for most literally an unknown island. Mr. H. B. Drake , author of ' Korea of the Japanese,' sets out to give, not a geography lesson, not even the story of the gradual assimilation of these provinces with Japanese imperial rule and standards, but a delightful word picture of life against an Eastern scene that he knows and loves well.

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.
