(Section C)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Parry Jones (tenor)
Though primarily an instrumental composer, Felix White has written about three hundred songs. In these he has ranged over the rich field of our native poesy, particularly in the direction of ' the lovely that are not beloved ', as shown by many of his settings of rare and little-known poems. Some forty are with orchestra. The five to be heard this evening were written some years ago.
Ernest Bryson 's ' The Field of Boliauns ' is based on an old Celtic legend. Tom Fitzpatrick , running along a hedge, hears a clacking noise sees a little leprechaun mending a pair of shoes. He tells Tom many strange things, some" beautiful, but others Tom does not believe and laughs derisively. Tom seizes the Poor little leprechaun, and makes him show where his crock of gold is hidden. It is in a large field, full of boliauns (ragwort), and Tom ties his red garter on to the boliaun under which the leprechaun tells him is the gold.
Tom lets the leprechaun go after making him swear not to remove the garter, and, knowing that leprechauns always keep their word, runs home for a spade. Reaching the field again, he finds that every boliaun has a red garter tied to it!

: Northern Music-Hall: Variety

from the Argyle Theatre, Birkenhead

Don Galvan, "The Mexican Troubadour", has the honour of compering tonight's broadcast from the popular Argyle. Artists who are to broadcast will be chosen from the following: Sybil Stanford and her Girl Friends (this well-known soprano made her debut on the air in a broadcast from the Argyle on the night of the opening of the Mersey Tunnel in July, 1934) ; Edwin Lawrence, with his amusing stump speeches; The Radio Starlets, some young people discovered by T.D. Clarke of the Argyle. Two of the "Starlets" are Stanley and Derrick Jones, boy vocalists, who, following a broadcast from this famous theatre in February, received a contract from one of the big recording companies; another "Starlet" is Ivy Hadfieid, a fifteen-year-old xylophonist, who has never broadcast before as a solo artist; another is Bertie Starmer, a thirteen-year-old light comedian, impressionist, and dancer, in a surprise item; and another, Betty Maltby, a young singer from Tyneside in a dramatic cameo, the lyric of which was found by her father in a bazaar in Mesopotamia. And finally, The Four Beachcombers in tuneful renderings of the sweet music of Hawaii.

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.

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.
