: A SYMPHONY CONCERT

The BBC Midland Orchestra
Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward
In his ' Procession nocturne ' Henri Rabaud-one -time pupil of Massenet and since 1919 Director of the Paris
Conservatoire — deliberately challenges comparison with Liszt, for his music illustrates that episode from Lenau's ' Faust' which also forms the programmatic basis of Liszt's ' Der niichtliche Zug '. Faust, riding alone through a forest in the spring night, hears distant chanting. It is the Festival of St. John'* Eve ; a procession of children, nuns, and holy men passes. Faust watches, envying their happiness, and when they have gone buries his face in his horse's mane and weeps bitterly.
Haydn's Symphony No. 31, in D. is, unusually for him, scored for four horns instead of two. We know he had some good horn players in 1765 when he composed it at Esterhaz, and there is much more work for them than is customary with Haydn, particularly at the beginning when the ' horn signal' is heard at once.

t from f THE GRAND THEATRE,
DONCASTER
The history of the Grand Theatre, Doncaster, really dates back to the year 1775 when the Doncaster Corporation built the Theatre Royal in the Market Place and let it to Mr. Tate-Wilkinson, manager of the York company-of comedians, at the yearly rental of E70.
The old theatre was doomed by the modernising of the Market Place, and was superseded by the New Grand Theatre, built by Mr. Chap-man, which opened in 1899 with La Poupée. In 1915 it passed into the hands of the Doncaster Palace Theatre Company, its present owners. It was reconstructed in 1931. Among the acts which listeners are likely to hear tonight are some famous broadcasting names. The famous Three Southern Sisters ; (' England's loveliest singing trio ') ; Nosmo King and Hubert, in comedy and impressions ; the Royal Command and radio star, Johnson Clark with ' Hodge', in his latest ventriloquial scena ; and Harry Claff with Winnie Wager in ' A Knight in Shining Armour', which he broadcast in London a few weeks ago.

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.
