(Section C)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by AYLMER BUESST
Solo pianoforte, VIVIAN LANGRISH
William Alwyn was born at Northampton in 1905 and studied at the Royal Academy of Music where he is now a Professor of Composition. His Piano Concerto was composed in 1929, and was first performed at Bournemouth with Clifford Curzon as soloist. Although in one Continuous movement, the music is divided into four distinct sections. After a vigorous orchestral introduction the principal theme is announced on the piano. All the thematic material used is derived from this one rhythmic theme, which achieves a final transformation in the quiet coda.

: Unrehearsed Debate

' That Life a Hundred Years Ago is Preferable to Life a Hundred Years
Hence'
Proposer, A. G. STREET Opposer, GERALD HEARD
Chairman, J. A. SCOTT WATSON
,That Arthur Street, ' the countryman ' and author of ' Farmer's Glory ', is proposing this motion must be understandable to his legion of listeners, for he loathes the hurry of modern life, and he must imagine life a hundred years hence as a hundred-mile-an-hour nightmare. True, he uses petrol on his farm in Wiltshire and his cows there are electrically milked, but that is expediency. His heart is in the flower-scented dawdling days of years gone by..... But Gerald Heard , with his equal legion of admirers, is with today and tomorrow. There should be a keen debate presided over with strict impartiality, though there is a farmer in the chair.

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
