: ' THE VOICE OF ESSEX

A programme with no ' 'foreigners' expressing the character and life of the people on the East Coast, from recordings made on the spot last week
Arranged by Edward Allen and Ian Cox
Compere, Ivan Pullen
Here is a country programme in which all the contributors are local men. Ted Allen , who is already well known for his broadcasts on wild-fowling, brought some of his friends to the microphone of the BBC's recording van last week to give the inside story of life on the marshy shore of Essex. It is from records that were made then that the present programme is compiled. You will hear about smuggling, local farming, ghosts, wild fowling, and a good deal else, including some brilliant imitations of the calls of wild birds.

Alexandra Palace Israel in Egypt
CHORUS
Double Chorus, He spake the word Double Chorus, He gave them hailstones
Double Chorus, He sent a thick darkness
The Lord is a man of War (Duet for baritones and basses)

7.53 ISOBEL BAILLIE AND DOUBLE
CHORUS
Aria and Double Chorus,
Sing ye to the Lord
The Lord shall reign for ever and ever
The fine organ at Alexandra Palace long suffered from the disadvantage of being tuned to the old high pitch that generally predominated in Britain until about forty years ago and was maintained by the bands of the British Army until 1929. The pitch of the organ has now at last been altered-an expensive proceeding-and this evening's Handel concert, at which the organ will be heard for the first time since the change, is an attempt to defray the cost. All the artists have given their services. The orchestra consists of students of the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal College of Music, and the chorus is mainly composed of amateur singers.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section B)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Sir Hamilton Harty
John Field (1782-1837), Irish pianist «nd composer, is now chiefly remembered as the inventor of the nocturne and as Chopin's principal forerunner in the then new style of writing for the piano. With the exception of a few nocturnes and one or two of his seven concertos, Field's compositions are now almost completely forgotten. Sir Hamilton Harty has now rescued four little-known pieces-a polka, a nocturne, a waltz, and a rondo-from undeserved oblivion and has scored them for small orchestra.

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
