' Annuals '
W. E. SHEWELL-COOPER and H. J. HALL
Tonight's ' Northern Garden' talk takes the form of an exchange of views between
W. E. Shewell-Cooper , Senior Lecturer in Horticulture at the Swanley Agricultural College, and H. J. Hall , Head Gardener at Harewood, Yorkshire. Their subject is Annuals-annual plants being those which grow up from seed, flower, ripen, seed and die in the course of one season, one year. They are particularly suitable to a mixed garden. Annuals may be divided into three classes-the hardy, which are sown at once in the ground they are to occupy, the half-hardy, which are usually transplanted from a slight hot-bed, and the tender, which are in fact greenhouse or stove plants.
A programme of New Tunes by Northern Composers arranged by Thomas Matthews and David Porter
THE REVUE ORCHESTRA
Conductor, THOMAS MATTHEWS
The Revue Orchestra is a combination of fourteen players, drawn from the Halle Orchestra and local dance bands. They specialise in ' symphonic jazz' arrangements and their programme tonight will consist of ' Brand New' works by Northern composers. One of these composers, Wilfred Caine , is dead, but the waltz by which he is represented has never been performed before.
Arthur Stutely , well-known Liverpool clarinettist, contributes a Caprice, Oscar Naylor , who has been responsible for many of the Revue Orchestra's former arrangements, has composed a foxtrot for the occasion ; Michael Sayer , who wrote music for ' Northern Nobs ', and Sidney Freedmann , former conductot of the Buxton Summer Orchestra, are also represented.
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.
