: String Orchestral Concert The B.B.C. Orchestra

(Strings of Section G)
(Led by MARIE WILSON )
Conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON PURCELL had written much incidental music to plays and at least one opera, the famous
Dido and Æneas, when the allpoworful poet and dramatist, Dryden, decided that here was a composer worthy to collaborate with him. Purcell was therefore asked to write the music to Dryden's patriotic drama King Arthur. Pw-cell had already been tested with other plays of Dryden, but here was his great chance, and much of the music he wrote for it, of which there is a great deal, is as fine as anything he ever did. Yet King Arthur is by no means the best of Dryden's plays-it is not, by the way, an opera, but a play with incidental music and a masque-and it lives only because of the music Purcell composed for it.

: ' CHINA IN THE MELTING-POT '—I

Professor P. M. ROXDY
SIX ' travellers from the East ' have painted for listeners the Eastern and particularly the Chinese scene in a series of talks describing the daily life, work, customs, belief and leisure of the Chinese and their neighbours. Professor Roxby, in this new series, will discuss the nature and significance of the transformation through which the ancient civilization of China is now passing. China offers the absorbing spectacle of a civilization struggling to become a nation. Tho nature of the struggle is dictated by her history and geography, and an accurate knowledge of these influences is the only key to the understanding of the present upheaval.
Professor Roxhy's first talk will emphasize this approach to the subject and will contain some personal impressions of important changes in China during the last twenty years.

: The Week's Good Cause

Appeal on behalf of PADCROFT, the Boys' Home of the London Police Court Mission, by Mr. SEYMOUR HICKS.
Contributions will be gratefully received and should be addressed to[address removed]
MR. SEYMOUR HICKS will appeal for the Boys' Home of the London Police Court Mission, where boys are admitted who have been charged in the London courts. The Mission aims at helping these lads after their first false stop and saving them from falling into criminal habits. Instead of committal to Borstal or prison, Padcroft offers a home for three months, with regular hours and healthy exercise. Work is found for all boys on leaving the Home. Over 6,000 lads have passed through Padcroft since its opening. £1,200 is urgently needed to complete the rebuilding of the Home.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
