Alfredo Campoli (violin)
Saint-Saëns (1835-1921) was one of the leading French composers of the nineteenth century. He lived a long and vigorous life devoted to the service of his art-as pianist, teacher and composer. A fluent composer and excellent craftsman, Saint-Saëns gave his attention to almost every form of composition.
Until quite recently Saint-Saens's five piano concertos and three violin concertos were frequently heard in England. The B minor Concerto is a melodious and elegantly constructed work, and is most effectively written for the solo instrument.

: FROM THE NORTHERN CAPITALS

The BBC
Midland Orchestra
Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward
Of Sibelius's seven symphonies the fourth in A minor is held by many musicians to be his greatest. In the space of half-an-hour he says compactly, and with the utmost restraint and economy of means, all that goes to make a typical Sibelius utterance. The whole work is stark in the sense that it is stripped of all superfluities of thematic material and orchestral colouring, yet it is packed with every ingredient necessary to a symphony in a highly-concentrated form.
The first movement, in slow time throughout, lasts only eight minutes; the second in quick time, four minutes; the third, the slow movement, eight minutes; and the fourth, again in quick time, ten minutes. In nothing does Sibelius better show his deep regard for form but his utter disregard for convention than in this magnificent work.

Ivan Samson will continue the further adventures of Trooper Useless by L. Patrick Greene. There have been few pleasanter heroes in fiction than Trooper James Montague Ouless, of the British South Africa Police - diffident, brave, with a sense of humour. He made his first appearance on the air (or anywhere else) in 1936 in a series of episodes taking place on a long patrol. Trooper Useless became a hero in the London Children's Hour, and the series was published in book form as 'Trooper Useless'.
Last month he reappeared on the air in a new series of adventures in Africa. These, too, are to be done into a book called 'Trooper in Charge'. One of the fine characters in these adventures is Ouless's native servant Kawipi, who is loyal to the bone.
Patrick Greene joined the British South Africa Police at the age of seventeen, and was invalided out after many years' service. Ivan Samson, by the way, served in Africa during the war.

: 'FAMILY TREE'

by Philip Wade
Produced by Lance Sieveking
Cast
The action takes place in and around
Newby Hall
This drama of traditional loyalties is a second revival of one of Philip Wade 's most successful radio plays. It was first produced in 1932 and was described by critics as the radio play of the year. It was revived in 1934. Newby Hall has belonged to the family of the Ebbworths for so long that, far from the place belonging to them, they seem to belong to it. We are given a glimpse of the state of the house and the family in 1911, 1921, and 1931. The changing fortunes of the house are symbolised in the play by a magnificent vine.
' Family Tree' was broadcast in the National programme on Wednesday

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.
