The Little Orchestra, which is the new name of Jack Hardy 's Quintet (formerly the Houghton Novelty Quintet), is presenting a series of programmes appropriate to ' Special Occasions '. It will be remembered that there was recently a programme of music ' At the Cinema ' consisting for the most part of film music. Tonight the setting will be a flower show, and Richard North , as compere, will give some indication of the ceremonial connected with it and the various exhibits.
in a programme which includes some dialect poetry
It will be remembered that a verse speaking choir was introduced with some effect into a play recently broadcast from Newcastle, Abagail Tysack. These combinations are not dissimilar from singing choirs. They are split into various sections-for instance, into high and low voices-and there are soloists. The Barton Verse Speaking Choir was formed in Birkenhead two years ago; it supplied the choruses for the Liverpool production of T. S. Eliot 's Murder in the Cathedral. Recently Laurence Binyon gave the choir a choric ode with which to experiment.
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.
