Conductor, F. MORTIMER
Foden's Motor Works Band, from Sandbach, Cheshire, that famous Northern combination founded in 1908 by the late Edwin Foden , started its career with a set of second-hand instruments, valued at £30, and with only an old stable in which to rehearse. Since 1910, when it first gained the Crystal Palace Championship, it has twice secured the National Challenge Trophy outright (in 1928 and 1934), through winning it three years in succession, in addition to winning, many trophies at
Belle Vue, Manchester. The members of the Band are particularly proud of the fact that they have twice been commanded to play before the King and Queen, and once before the Prince of Wales.

(From Newcastle)
Of the six Delius songs that Margaret Hewitt is singing this evening, only one-the lovely setting of Herrick's ' To Daffodils '—was inspired by English words. Thoroughly English as he was in some respects, Delius was a true cosmopolitan in culture ; in particular he loved Scandinavia and the music and literature of the Scandinavian countries. None of his songs is more characteristic of his style than these settings of the Norwegian Bjornsen's ' Cradle Song 'Twilight Fancies ' and ' Sweet Venevil' and of two Danish poems, the novelist-poet Jacobsen's ' Irmelin ' and Ludwig Holstein 's ' The Violet'. (Incidentally, Delius's opera, Fennimore and Gerda, is based on Jacobsen's novel, ' Niels Lyhne '.) Their verses never draw from Delius a broad singing melody ; that is not his method. He takes each poem and envelops it in the altogether individual atmosphere of his 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.
