: PHIL WATTS AND HIS QUARTET

with Beryl Davis
Phil Watts runs three combinations, his trio, his quartet, and his full band, which last he is bringing to the microphone for the first time on August 12. Watts, who is a Londoner, left school at the age of sixteen, went into an estate agent's of.ice, but soon decided that music was his calling and joined a local band. He has since played for many hotels all over the country.
With each of his combinations
Beryl Davis sings. She is only fifteen years of age, and made her radio bow with Oscar Rabin and his
Romany Dance Band.
Watts's aim is to play dance music in good taste. Considering that the public has been misled in the question of swing, he has developed his own particular style of interpretation. His signature tune is ' With all my heart and soul '.

: ' CORNISH HERO '

A serial version for broadcasting of Crosbie Garstin 's trilogy, ' The Penhales ', read by Geoffrey Tandy
Ortho Penhale. captive of war in Spain, has broken gaol again and is marauding round the country, hunted, and trying to find his way to the coast. In this instalment he comes across an old woman who has never seen the sea, but asks him to describe it because her only son had gone away there and never came back. Ortho's description, which you will hear this afternoon, is probably, in its truth of what the sailor really feels, one of the most notable passages Garstin ever wrote.

ORCHESTRA
Overture, Don Giovanni. .....Mozart
Mozart's opera Don Giovanni was first performed at Prague on October 29, 1787. The overture, a fine and dramatic piece of music, sums up the atmosphere of the whole opera.
The opening sombre andante is based on the music that accompanies the apparition of ' The Stone Guest', while the succeeding allegro depicts Don Giovanni 's love of enjoyment.

ORCHESTRA
Variations symphoniques, Op. 23, for violoncello and orchestra
Boellmann
Leon Boellmann , born in Alsace in 1862, was a real Frenchman, and none of his music could he mistaken for anything but genuine French. In one respect, however, his career as a composer was not the one usually followed by his countrymen — he wrote no music for the stage, the traditional path to success and popularity in the French world of music.
His Variations symphoniques for cello and orchestra have always been popular, though they are hardly on the same level as much of his other work ; the Sonata for cello and piano, for instance, which betrays some affinity with Cesar Franck , is more distinguished music.

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.

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.
