: 'MRS. BEETON'

by Joan Adeney Easdale
The life of Mrs. Tsabella Mary Beeton and the story of how the famous Cookery-Book came to be written
Produced by John Richmond
(Empire Programme)
One of the interesting things about this serious play on the life of Mrs. Beeton (it should not be confused with Meet Mrs. Beeton, du Garde Peach's skit broadcast in January, 1934) is how its youthful author came to write it. She was only twenty when she made up her mind to write a book about Mrs. Beeton-she used the famous cookery book and wanted to know something about its author. But nobody could tell her. Joan Easdate 's publishers (she was writing verse when she was fourteen) gave her an introduction to Sir Mason Beeton , Mrs. Beeton's son. He gave her all the help he could, but he was an infant when his mother died.
And so Joan Easdale started on her four years' search. At Pinner, trying to find Mrs. Beeton's first home after marriage, a road sweeper directed her to a butcher, who sent her to an undertaker, who sent her to the bedside of an old woman, who had actually known Mrs. Beeton. At Greenhithe, where Mrs. Beeton died in her twenty-ninth year, Joan met Gentleman Hoadly, who remembered her and said how very friendly she had been with everyone.
She found that four years' research more exciting than writing either the book or the play.

Part 1
Elgar's Violin Concerto was given its first performance by Kreisler at a concert of the Royal Philharmonic Society in 1910. In an article in Grove's Dictionary H. C. Colles points out that it ' is remarkable as the first work of the kind by an English composer which can be said to have taken root in the repertory of violin virtuosi. No doubt Elgar's early training as a violinist stood him in good stead in tackling the technical problems of writing for the solo instrument, and the bravura passages are as successful as they are daring. But more personal qualities make the work live in the affections of listeners '. Sir Donald Tovey has described it as ' one of the most intimate works of this century '.

: CONCERT, Part 2

When in 1904 that strange, half-crazy genius Scriabin abandoned his wife for Tatyana Schl özer (exactly reproducing the Wagner-Minna-Cosima situation), he had just begun to interest himself in theosophy. With Tatyana he went to the Riviera, and the great orchestral work, begun in the garden of his villa looking out over the Mediterranean, vividly reflects the semi-mystical, semi-erotic current of his thoughts.
Like Scriabin's other orchestral works, the ' Poem of Ecstasy' was first sketched out as a piano composition. (Amusingly enough, the only piano available was a decrepit, out-of-tune instrument hired from a cafe nearby.) Scriabin was never a quick worker and the ' Poem ' was not finished till three or four years later, and then only at the pressing request of the New York conductor Altschuler.

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.
