THE B.B.C. THEATRE ORCHESTRA
Conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON
Produced by MARTYN C. WEBSTER
Burlesque, experience proves, makes for good broadcasting. Listeners will remember the Baddeley-Mackenzie-Leigh success Pride of the Regiment and the amusing absurdities of Only a Mill Girl and Beaten at the Post by the two brothers responsible for tonight's show. They turn from skitting the Nat Gould racing tale and the sentimental novelette to find the chinks in the armour of Ruritania. The King's Double makes genial fun of those innumerable romances that delight in ' somewhere in Central Europe ' as a setting. It tells of ' Viennese nights and Parisian lights ' and ' of wine redder than the usual red ' in a land where no one ever goes to bed. The burlesque is delightfully realised in the book and the music, and V. C. Clinton-Baddeley , Eric Anderson , Ronald Hill and Violet Marquesifa , prominent in the cast, have the right knack of putting over this kind of agreeable nonsense.

: B.B.C. CONCERTS OF CONTEMPORARY MUSIC-VI

Hall, Broadcasting House)

(Section D)
( Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by ANTON WEBERN
(Transcribed for String Orchestra by the Composer)
Alban Berg , an Austrian composer forty-seven years old, and the most gifted of the pupils of Arnold Schonberg , his only master, lives quietly in Vienna, composing, teaching, and writing. The Lyric Suite was composed in 1926. It is written, not in the orthodox symphonic form, but most informally as befits the lyrical character of the various movements, aptly indicated in the tempo markings. The first movement, which is not to be heard to night, is joyful, the second, Andante amoroso, with which the broadcast opens, is tender; the third, Allegro mistcrioso, gives the idea of repressed expression, with violent outbreaks in the Trio Estatico. The climax of lyrioism is reached in the Adagio appassionato, which concludes the present performance. The remaining movements, the Presto turns away from ecstasy, and the final Largo dies away in inconsolable despair.

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.
