Concerto in E minor, Op. 64 (for violin and orchestra). .Mendelssohn 1 Allegro. 2 Andante. 3 Allegretto non troppo—Allegro molto vivace with The BBC Northern Orchestra
Leader, Alfred Barker
Conducted by H. Foster Clark
A sketch by T. Thompson
Told by the Author and John Lockett
This is a character sketch in which a near-centenarian looks back at the high spots of his life. Married four or five times, he now ' gets 'em mixed up ' ; thinks he'll not marry again, or there won't be room for him in the grave ; didn't see much of his wives, as he worked ' neet shift for fifty year and went out wi' thi dog in the days'. The greatest change he'd noticed in his lifetime, in which he had not believed in gormandisin' - ' Ah reckon five good meals a day is enoof for anybody 'was in the quality of the ale: ' Whan Ah wor a lad tha culd lap it round a stick. Now tha can get fuddled faster on skim milk '.
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.
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.
