: EUGENE PINI AND HIS TANGO ORCHESTRA

with Cyril Grantham

Contributors

Unknown: Cyril Grantham

: Quentin MacLean

at the Organ of the Trocadero Cinema, Elephant and Castle.
Quentin Maclean has earned his living as a theatre organist for over seventeen years, and was actually the first person to broadcast on a theatre organ in this country. This he did from the Shepherd's Bush Pavilion. In 1928 he designed and opened the largest theatre organ in Europe, that at the Regal, Marble Arch.
Maclean has the theatrical tradition thoroughly in his blood. His father,
Alick Maclean, was musical director to Sir Charles Wyndham for fifteen years and was also a composer of operas. Quentin Maclean, however, had a strictly academic musical training at Leipzig under Max Reger and Karl Straube. He has been broadcasting regularly from the giant Trocadero Cinema since March, 1931, and is proud of the fact that his early training is not forgotten - he has played the Hindemith Concerto at a Promenade Concert, and the solo part in his own concerto with the Bournemouth Municipal
Orchestra.

: 'UP TO LONDON'

Reginald Arkell
Listeners who remember Reginald Arkell's previous broadcasts in this series will be glad to hear that enter- taining West Countryman once more talking about some of the things that struck him in London last time he was there.
The series ' Up to London' is broadcast from time to time in the West of England programmes, and is shared by a number of prominent West Country people.
Arkell was born in Lechlade,
Gloucestershire, and brought up in the farming tradition. It was soon obvious, however, that he had literary and dramatic talent at his finger tips, and he is well known, not only in the West Country but in London, as an author and play-wright. He has contributed light verse and articles to Punch and many other leading magazines, and has written a number of plays including the stage version of 1066-and All That, which ran for a year at the Strand Theatre. His first play Columbine was produced in Brighton in 1912, and a year later at the Strand Theatre and in New York. Arkell has given a great many broadcast talks, and has appeared frequently in television, talking on gardens, cruising, bridge, and other subjects in characteristically light vein.
1066-and All That was televised on Tuesday afternoon, and will be repeated on Saturday night.

: ELGAR

String Quartet, Op. 83
1 Allegro moderato 2 Piacevole
3 Allegro molto / played by The Stratton String Quartet :
George Stratton (violin)
Carl Taylor (violin)
Watson Forbes (viola)
John Moore (violoncello)
All Elgar's chamber works, the Violin Sonata, the Quintet, and the Quartet, were written in a Sussex village in the years 1918 and 1919, so it is safe to assume that reaction from the horrors of the preceding years was largely responsible for their quiet autumnal beauty. They were first heard when the war had ceased. Each is constructed on much the same plan. There are three movements, no scherzo ; and the slow movement in each work is the jewel within the setting, a movement of rare beauty-as is the Piacevole in this Quartet.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
