Mr. W. A. INDERWICK: Archery To-day.'

THE ancient British sport of archery no longer enjoys such publicity as it did in the days when Robin Hood used to split peeled wands at hundreds of paces away, and the English bowmen drove their arrows through coats of mail. But the longbow is far from being extinct either as a weapon (witness the recent big-game expeditions equipped only with bows and arrows) or as a sport. Mr. Inderwick, who gives this afternoon's talk, is a former English champion of the bow.

'The May Queen'

A Pastoral
Written by HENRY F. CHORLEY
Composed by Sir W. STERN
DALE BENNETT
Captain of the Foresters
(Robin Hood) ;
STUART ROBERTSON
THE WIRELESS CHORUS
THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA
Conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON
QIR WILLIAM STERNDALE BENNETT was a leading figure in the Victorian world of music, and did more for his generation than we arc apt to remember now. He was one of the first students at the Royal Academy of Music, which in those days was in comparatively humble quarters off Hanover. Square. Itwasa boarding school then. He had the good luck to play at one of the Academy concerts at which Mendelssohn was present, and then and there began a friendship which had a considerable influence on Bennett's career. He visited Leipzig more than once at Mendelssohn's invitation and played and conducted his own music in the famous Gewandiiaus. Schumann was also keenly interested in the young Englishman and spoke very warmly of him in the columns of his own paper.
In the course of his long and busy career, Sir
William held many important appointments. chief of which was at the Royal Academy, whose Principal he became in 1866. He was Professor of Music at Cambridge and founder of the Bach Society
For many years the most 'popular work in its own class, The May Queen, is still a, favourite Cantata, especially with choral societies of modest size and attainment. Thoroughly melodi. ous and grateful to sing throughout, it is as good an example as we possess of the music of its day-a day before problems and revolutionary tendencies began to seek expression in terms of sound. It sets forth the joyous spirit of May Day in the freshest and most wholesome way, and its popularity is very easy to understand.
It was composed for the Leeds Festival of 1858, at which Sir William was the conductor.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
