: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Eileen Atkins
Dr. Arne was a personal friend of Handel, who was twenty-five years his senior and thought a great deal of him. It was of Arne's famous tune ' Rule, Britannia!' that Wagner, many years later, said, the first eight notes contain the whole character of the British people.'
Arne could invent other good tunes, as his still popular songs attest, and as we may gather also from the Sonata in A, which however, is not one of the fully-developed Mozart or Beethoven type, but on the earlier, simpler pattern.

: ' I WAS A TRAMP'

Anonymous
This is the last of the six talks in which an ex-tramp-who prefers to remain anonymous as he has written a book and does not want to make capital out of his bitter experiences on the road—has told the plain, unadorned truth about a tramp's life in this country. Of the thousands of tramps who wander about the countryside few could have discussed their life in an interesting way without romanticising, as the speaker has done.

Conducted by SIR HENRY J. WOOD
A number of fine musicians from Czechoslovakia have lately been earning a European reputation. One of the latest to become known in London is Louis Kentner , who created something of a stir last season with his performances of Liszt's music, in which he showed himself to be a great interpretive artist and a brilliant technician.
Born in 1905, Mr. Kentner received his musical education at Budapest, studying under various distinguished musicians including Kodaly. Among many important prizes he has carried off are the Chopin Prize in Warsaw and the Liszt Prize in Budapest, both for piano. Mr. Kentner is already known throughout Europe as one of the leading Czech pianists of today. He first appeared in England in 1935 and in May last year he made his microphone debut. This will be his first appearance at the Proms.
Tickets can be obtained from [address removed], and usual agents. Prices (including Entertainments Tax): 7s. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved), 3s. (unreserved), promenade (payment at doors only) 2s.

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
