: THE LONDON-TO-THE-ISLE-OF-MAN AIR RACE

Interviews with the competitors and a commentary on the start by C. J. T. Gardner, from Hatfield
Aerodrome
Listeners are to hear three broadcasts today of the fourth annual air race from Hatfield, Herts., via Blackpool to Douglas, Isle of Man: 256 miles in all. The race will be non-stop to Blackpool in any event, and non-stop from Hatfield to Douglas if weather conditions allow. As the last part of the course is over sixty-three miles of sea a sea patrol will be provided by a naval vessel and the Douglas motor lifeboat, Manchester and Salford.
The race will be open to all types of aircraft, British and foreign, provided they have a minimum cruising speed of 100 m.p.h. and a minimum range of 400 miles. There will be a challenge trophy for the winner and a cash prize of £100, with E70 and £40 the second and third respectively.
It is expected that among the competitors will be Alex Henshaw , who made a record flight from England to the Cape and back in February in 4 days, 10 hours, and 5 minutes, and who was interviewed on Wednesday by Howard Marshall in ' At Home to Sportsmen '.

: DVORAK

Pianoforte Quartet in E flat, Op. 87
1 Allegro con fuoco. 2 Lento. 3 Allegro moderato, grazioso. 4 Allegro ma non troppo played by The English Ensemble:
Marjorie Hayward (violin)
Rebecca Clarke (viola)
May Mukle (violoncello).
Kathleen Long (pianoforte)
Dvorak's Piano Quartet in E flat, composed in 1889, is one of his most superb works: serious, virile, a model of good workmanship. Nor is the characteristic lyrical element lacking ; the slow movement shows Dvorak at his lyrical best. To judge the Czech master merely by his more superficial, rather naively charming compositions, without taking into account such fine works as this, is to do him serious injustice.

Leader, Philip Whiteway
Conducted by Arnold Perry
Not until the end of the first movement of Sibelius's Second Symphony does one realise which among those many fragmentary beginnings of themes has the most significance. Sibelius keeps to the classical scheme of four movements, the two middle in the order slow-quick. Where without a break the scherzo joins the final Allegro there is a reminder of Beethoven's Fifth, the work from which Sibelius's symphonies develop.
The join effected (by means less subtle, less magical than Beethoven's but producing a splendid rhetorical display as perfect for its purpose as Beethoven's drum-taps) the last movement sets in. as the first movement did, with fragments of themes, but bolder now and keeping us waiting less long before the movement reveals its proportions.

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.
