(Section C)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS and THOMAS F. DUNHILL
BOOTH HITCHEN (baritone) (First Performance)
Conducted by the COMPOSER
Dick Whittington , which is the latest work of the composer of Tantivy Towers , is an English ballet, entirely English in subject and style, and intended for English dancers. It has not yet been performed on the stage, but Mr. Dunhill has prepared this short suite (which incorporates only six of the numbers of a work which in its entirety would play for over an hour) in the hope that it may be useful for concert and broadcast performances.
The first movement opens with the sound of Bow Bells and contains suggestions of the famous message, 'Turn again, Whittington, Lord Mayor of London.' The bells are heard in the finale also, which depicts the Lord Mayor's Show. The other movements are dances, except for No. 4, ' On the Island ', which assumes a more dramatic 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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
