5XX Daventry

A Concert

BETSY DE LA PORTE (Contralto)
WALTER GLYNNE (Tenor)
ST. HILDA'S BAND (Soloist, WILLIAM OUGHTON)
Michael William Balfe, though counted as one of our English composers, was really Irish, born in Dublin in 1808. He was a man of many parts - a violin soloist, an operatic singer, a conductor and composer, and his career took him to many countries. He collected honours also from different parts of Europe, being a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour, and a Commander of the Order of Carlos III of Spain. The King of Prussia offered him the Order of the Prussian Eagle, but that he was not allowed to accept.
(Soloist, E. BOAM) (Soloist, R. SMITH)
An Australian by birth, Clutsam began his career as a concert pianist, playing in many parts of the world before he came to settle in London. There he made a name for himself as accompanist and as music critic. His first important work was The Lady of Shalott, played in London in 1909, and more than one Opera of his has been presented here. One was specially interesting-an opera in such miniature form that it might be only one torn in an evening's entertainment. It was included in that way in a programme of the old Tivoli. Along with Hubert Bath, he made a real success with Young England to a text by Basil Hood, produced in 1916, and no one needs to be reminded of the happy way in which his Lilac Time embodies so much of the charm of Schubert's music.

From Tolpuddle to T.U.C.

ROBERT OWEN and the' Grand National' H. L. BEALES (Reader in Economic History at the London School of Economics)
THIS EVENING'S TALK has the same purpose as the dramatic interlude last week ; both being designed to show that some kind of trade unionism in England not only was justified, but was an imperative necessity a hundred years ago.
However difficult may have been the depression that followed the Napoleonic Wars, if the ruling class, as a whole, of that day had had imagination or compassion or intelligence, there would have been no Tolpuddle martyrs, no Chartist Riots, and a great deal less suffering.
But the selfish had their dinners without caring that others went without. They controlled the laws that protected them. The English landowners were asked for mercy, and insisted on sacrifice. By their obstinacy reform was delayed and delayed. They had in the end to be compelled. But then, that has been the history of the world.
It is all the more noteworthy that the greatest reformer of his time was himself an employer. In 1815, single-handed, Robert Owen agitated for factory reform. In 1833 to 1834 he formed his Grand National Consolidated Trades Union. It was killed by the opposition of employers and the repression of the Government, and workers turned to the Chartist movement, which grew to revolutionary proportions in ten years and eventually lapsed. But the ideas it had fought for were by then generally accepted. Owen had not lived for nothing. Trade Unionism was to come i nto its own.
The talk by Mr. H. L. Beales this evening will be followed by a second dramatic interlude next Thursday.

Aristocrats

with Robert Laccy
The fourth of six films on the noble families of Europe. Prince Franz Josef II of Liechtenstein
The tiny country of Liechtenstein is squeezed between Austria and Switzerland and has been ruled by Prince Franz Josef II since 1938. In that year he met Hitler and prevented the Nazis taking over his country.
The Prince and his wife, Princess Gina, have the most valuable collection of paintings still in private hands in the world. But they dislike talking about money -' you can't eat a painting and you can't make clothes out of a castle, I mean what is rich? '
ROBERT LACEY finds how the family lost 22 castles and 100,000 ancestral acres to the Russians in 1945 but kept Liechtenstein, and transformed it into Europe's richest community.
The noble house of Liechtenstein can claim to be the world's most successful aristocrats, for they have risen from landowners to rulers of a fully fledged, if pocket-sized, sovereign state.

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.
