Leader, Alfred Barker
Conducted by Joseph Lewis
Hamish MacCunn (1868-1916), one of the most gifted composers that Scotland has produced, studied at the Royal College of Music under Sir Hubert Parry until 1886. In the following year he came into real prominence as a composer with his concert overture ' Land of the Mountain and the Flood The poetic basis of the music is the passage from Scott's ' Lay of the Last Minstrel', which begins : —
0 Caledonia stem and wild, Meet nurse for a poetic child I
Land of brown heath and shaggy wood! Land of the mountain and the flood Land of my sires! What mortal hand Can e'er untie the filial band
That knits me to thy rugged strand ?

: ' RADIO ROADHOUSE '

Situated on the Roundabout By-Pass
Under the direction of Naunton Wayne
The Roadhouse Orchestra
Conducted by Charles Shadwell
Unrestricted fun in a built-up area
Devised by Leonard M. Barry
Produced by Vernon Harris and Leonard M. Barry
At the Radio Roadhouse, as at any Other fashionable roadhouse, it is not only the entertainers who entertain. Many a famous artist drops in, and it is part of the idea behind this programme of novelty and surprise to find out who is there. There will be music, there will be all the atmosphere: gaiety, conversation, songs, splashing from the bathing-pool.
Leonard M. Barry , who devised the programme-the first of a series of three-was the producer of the stage production of Stanelli's ' Stag Party', which ran for three years. He has recently produced Big Bill Campbell 's Way Out West, a spectacular stage show based on the radio series 'The Cabin in the Hills'.

: A RECITAL

Herbert Heyner (baritone)
Eileen Ralph (pianoforte)
Herbert Heyner
One of the most distinguished of British baritones, Herbert Heyner , has appeared at more than twenty seasons of Promenade Concerts, sung principal baritone at all the leading provincial festivals, and also appeared in opera at Covent Garden. He is an extraordinarily versatile artist, for in addition to oratorio and opera he has distinguished himself as a singer of French songs and German lieder. Nor has he neglected British composers ; he has done much to make known the songs of Delius, Elgar, and Dame Ethel Smyth.
Eileen Ralph
Eileen Ralph was born in Perth, West Australia. She began her musical studies at an early age and gained her Associated Board Scholarship at sixteen. At the Royal Academy of Music she won distinctions for piano, singing, and composition, including the Macfarren Gold Medal. She gave her first recital at the Wigmore Hall in 1934. She has since broadcast many times and appeared at orchestral and other important concerts in the provinces. She specialises in the performance of contemporary 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.

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.
