This programme of Yugoslav folk songs will be sung by an undergraduate choir of about forty voices from the University of Zagreb. The choir's title ' Mladost-Balknn ' :s taken from the amalgamation in 1930 of two earlier choirs, the Mladost (founded in 1900), and the Balkan (formed in 1904). During their existence the present choir and its two predecessors have sung in more than a thousand concerts, in Czechoslovakia, France, Germany, Poland, Spain, Algiers, Tunis, Malta, and Turkey. The choir is an entirely student organisation, its present chairman, M. Milko Riffer , being an undergraduate, although on this first visit to London it is being accompanied by one of the University professors, Dr. A. Ugrenovic. The conductor, Jakov Gotovac , is opera conductor of the National Theatre of Zagreb.

: HENRY AINLEY in ‘ HASSAN ’

The story of Hassan of Baghdad, and how he came to make the Golden Journey to Samarkand, by James Elroy Flecker. Adapted for broadcasting by Dulcima Glasby
Part I
Cast «
Dancing women, beggars, soldiers, police, pilgrims, merchants, attendants, and casual loiterers
The BBC Chorus (Section B) and the BBC Orchestra (Section C), led by Thomas Peatfield , conducted by Clarence Raybould
The play produced by Val Gieigud
Part 2 of ' Hassan' will be broadcast in the National programme at 9.40
Tonight's production will be the fifth occasion on which Hassan, James Elroy Flecker 's great and colorful play, has been heard over the air. The play was also produced in the television programme in June last year.
With the exception of Henry Ainley , who has appeared in all four previous broadcasts, and who will once more play the part created in the original production at the Hay-market Theatre in 1923, most of the cast are newcomers so far as the broadcast play is concerned. The play itself, in all its swing and vivid imagery, is typical of the work of the poet who died at the tragically early age of thirty-one. He never saw Hassan produced in his lifetime, and it ranks as chief of his posthumous works.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
