: Sokol Festival, Prague, 1938

A Sokol Choir
The Prague Radio Orchestra
Sokol Songs
Music from the Sokol Stadium
(recorded)
Sokol March, Towards a new Lite
(Suk) from Prague
The programme will be preceded by an explanation of the Sokol movement in Czechoslovakia, and a description of the scenes in Prague during the Tenth Sokol Congress.
The Sokol organisation in Czecho-Slovakia, with its ideals of physical fitness, moral virtues, and good citizenship, was founded by Dr. Miorslav Tvrs, professor at Prague University, in 1862. The Sokols (or hawks) with their buff tunics, red Garibaldi shirts, and slouch hats with a hawk's feather, play a big part in the national life.
This year's annual festival, falling as it does on the twentieth anniversary of the founding of the Czechoslovakian Republic, is being held on a grand scale, and has been going on since June 5. The stadium holds 200,000 spectators, and 26,000 persons can perform in the arena at the same time. During the festival the arts of singing, music, drama, gymnastics, games-all are exemplified; and children, as well as adults, take part.
In today's programme listeners will hear Sokol music-songs, marches - and an actual recording from the stadium of the music - to which the Sokols perform their exercises. The programme itself will be preceded by a description in English of the meaning of the Sokol movement, and the colourful and spectacular scenes now taking place in Prague.

Belonging to a family of musicians, Muriel Herbert was born in Yorkshire, and in 1917 won the Liver-pool Scholarship at the Royal College of Music. The Scholarship is awarded for musical composition and is open to residents in, or within a radius of twenty miles of Liverpool. After studying with Sir Charles Stanford and also with Sir Hugh Allen , she took an A.R.C.M. Diploma for piano playing, and later took lessons in Geneva from Gagnebin, principal of the Geneva Conservatoire.
Muriel Herbert has published a number of songs (the best known of which is perhaps ' The Lake Isle of Innisfree '), and has frequently broadcast her own compositions since the early days at Savoy Hill. She has also given recitals of her songs in this country and abroad.
Among the songs she is singing tonight are two settings of Helen Waddell 's translations of Mediaeval Latin Lyrics, of which this will be the first performance.

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

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.
