: A SYMPHONY CONCERT

The BBC Midland Orchestra
Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward Kurt Atterberg, an eminent Swedish composer and conductor, was bom at Gothenburg in 1887. He began his career as an engineer in the Patent Office, but later gave up this post to become music critic of the Stockholms Tidningen, and greatly added to his reputation as conductor of the Stockholm Orchestra. Later i he became President of the Swedish
Society of Composers. His compositions include several symphonies, symphonic poems, concertos, and theatre music. It is interesting to recall that the Symphony No. 6, which is probably the best known in England, was performed on a number of occasions when, in 1928, it won a prize of £2,000 in the international competition during the Schubert Centenary Celebrations. Listeners may remember that a part of his opera Fanal was relayed from Sweden, last April.

: DOMESTIC DRAMA-1

' Settling Down'
Kevin Fitz Gerald
Kevin Fitz Gerald , who won his radio spurs in December last year with his talk on the lost art of staying at home and in May this year consolidated his success with a talk on the free entertainments of London, is to give four weekly talks dealing with housing problems and his experience of them. The first talk (today) should be of particular interest to those about to get married, but it mustn't discourage them. They will hear about every conceivable disaster that may happen to them in their first home-and apparently did happen to Mr. Fitz Gerald. But they may recover their morale when they hear that he never expects to have such fun again.

: 'MODERN BRITISH SONG '

Gramophone Records by Sydney Northcote , D.Mus.
Dr. Sydney Northcote, the well-known lecturer and adjudicator, is a Professor and Examiner in singing and composition at the Guildhall School of Music, and Director of Music of the Heritage Craft Schools for Cripples, whose choir has been broadcast.
Earlier this week Dr. Northcote started a series of twelve gramophone programmes illustrating the development of German Lieder from Mozart to Marx.
In February and March of this year he gave a series of talks on the Ballad illustrated by gramophone records, and this evening's programme is, in effect, a sequel to those talks. He has always expressed a great belief in British song writers of the present day, and as a singer has broadcast many first performances of British songs. The composers represented in this programme are Delius, Vaughan Williams , Bantock, Quilter, and Warlock.

: The Opera Group presents 'BLUEBEARD'

A Comic Opera by Jacques Offenbach
Being selected music with a narrative based on the libretto (after Meilhac and Halevy) by Charles Lamb
Kenney Written and adapted for the microphone by Kathleen Nott and Ernst Schoen
The BBC Revue Chorus and The BBC Theatre Orchestra
Conducted by Georg Knepler with The action takes place in a village belonging to Lord Bluebeard, at the Court of King Bobeche, in Lord Bluebeard's castle, and again at the Court
' Bluebeard ' was broadcast on Wednesday in the National programme.
Of all the many gifted composers of Opera comique who flourished in Paris during the nineteenth century Offenbach was undoubtedly the most brilliant. His success as a composer of Opera comique, of which we have no exact equivalent in England, was probably unparalleled in the history of this form of entertainment.
This evening listeners will be given the opportunity of hearing another of Offenbach's lesser-known operas, based on the popular story of Blue Beard. It was first produced in 1856.

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.
