: THE LITTLE ORCHESTRA

Directed by Jack Hardy
(Northern Programme)
The Little Orchestra, though a quintet, is not ' billed ' as such because it sets out to perform music of a decidedly ambitious character, music that is usually tackled by 'small orchestras '. Popular, but not new, music is played, nearly all the arrangements being made by Jack Hardy himself, who acts as pianist. The Little Orchestra has become well known to Northern, listeners through its ' Special Occasions' series of broadcasts which began two years ago.

: THEATRES OF VARIETY

A Variety programme broadcast from the stage of THE PALACE THEATRE, BATH
(Western Programme)
The history of the Palace Theatre, Bath, goes back into the 'eighties, when a building was erected on the Sawclose site and named the Pavilion. It had its chairman, who announced the turns from his table, after the manner of the day. Next, it was partially reconstructed and became the Lyric, presenting such artists as Charles Chaplin , Ada Blanche , Charles Coborn. and Wilkie Bard. Then in 1903 it was renamed the Palace, and nine years later it was taken over by its present proprietor, W. S. Pearce.
For a quarter of a century the Palace has presented first-class entertainment. A year ago it closed down for rebuilding, and it was opened on September 20 with every modern improvement and comfort. The theatre is specially wired for broadcasting ; Lawrie Jackson is director of productions as well as conductor of the orchestra, and his signature tune, ' All the King's Horses', will be heard tonight.
Listeners will also hear such old favourites as Albert Sandier , Florence Oldham , and Raymond Bennett (of Bennett and Macnaughton fame) ; and the radio humorist, Jack War -man, one of the BBC's recent and most successful discoveries.

Rain)
Der Jager, Op. post. (The Huntsman)
The present series of special recitals of songs by Grieg should be of outstanding interest to listeners, for, as Francis Toye points out in his article on page 21, Grieg 'possessed in the highest degree the true song-writer's capacity to seize a mood, an atmosphere and fix it (in the photographic sense) instantly'. For some unaccountable reason, Grieg's songs have been long neglected, although many of them, such as ' There screeched a bird ', ' With a Waterlily ', and ' With a Primrose ', are undoubtedly fit to be compared with the finest examples of the greatest Lieder composers.
Further recitals in this series will be broadcast as follows: Wednesday (Regional, 9.0), Thursday (Regional,
6.35), Friday (National, 9.40), and Saturday (Regional, 8.50).

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.
