A Speech in the House of Commons, January 17, 1924, by the Right Hon. H. H. ASQUITH , F.R.S., M.P., during the debate which led to the formation of the first Labour Government


Unknown: H. H. Asquith


THE WORKS of Walt Whitman , the American poet, have in recent years made a great appeal to composers, particularly those for whom the philosophy of life and living is a congenial study ; Delius, for example, and more especially Vaughan Williams. The words of ' Toward the Unknown Region ' are taken from a well-known poem of Whitman's beginning:
' Darest thou now, 0 Soul, Walk out with me toward the unknown region ' ? to that land where :
' All waits undreamed of '. This work, Vaughan Williams's first important composition for choir and orchestra, had its first performance at the Leeds Festival in 1907, and its success marked him from that date as a composer of power and promise. It was followed at the next Leeds Festival by ' A Sea Symphony '. This confirmed the earlier promise and marked the beginning of his coming pre-eminence

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.
