: RACHMANINOFF

Sonata for cello and piano, in G minor, Op. 19 played by Norina Semino (cello)
John Pauer (piano)
Among Rachmaninoff's few works for chamber music this sonata occupies a prominent place. It was composed in 1901 and is thus contemporary with the Second Piano Concerto, perhaps his most popular composition, with which thematically it has much in common. It is in four movements.

: GERT AND DAISY'

(Elsie and Doris Waters) in a new series entitled
' Feed the Brute'
This inimitable pair need little introduction to most listeners. Sisters of Jack Warner , Elsie and Doris Waters have been delighting their listeners for years. Indeed, ' Gert and Daisy' must rank among the best-loved figures in radio.
This evening they are giving the first of a series of five-minute broadcasts on, for them, an unusual topic -food. Listeners to this series will not only be able to laugh at and with Gert and Daisy in their arguments, but will also gain no little useful information on how to make the best of wartime food conditions.
The broadcasts will be every evening at the same time, with the exception of Sundays.

: LISZT'S PIANO SONATA

played by Cyril Smith
Liszt's only sonata was completed on February 2, 1853, and was dedicated to Schumann in acknowledgment of the dedication of the latter's great Fantasia, Op. 17. In every way the sonata was an epoch-making work. It is undoubtedly one of Liszt's greatest compositions, and on every page of it there is evidence of the immense imagination that went to its making. The sonata is played without a break.

: ' HAIL VICTOR HERBERT!'

An account of the life and work of America's famous composer of romantic music
Written and presented by Roy Speer
Narrator, James Dyrenforth
The BBC Revue Chorus and the Augmented Revue Orchestra, conducted by Hyam Greenbaum
It has been said of Victor Herbert that had he been provided with the counterpart of W. S. Gilbert , he might well have produced an American Gilbert-and- Sullivan tradition.
As it was, he could produce a flow of music to suit almost any occasion, and his numerous operettas bear ample testimony to this genius. Many listeners will have seen the recent film based on his music, The Great Victor Herbert.

Thelma Reiss (cello)
(Soloist, Thelma Reiss )
Dvorak's Cello Concerto, in three movements, was written in the early 'nineties, soon after his return from America, and belongs to the period of the ' New World ' Symphony and the ' Nigger ' Quartet. But there is practically no trace of Negro colouring in the concerto.
As in the ' New World' Symphony, a motto theme dominates the whole work. Here the motto theme is the first tune of the first movement ; it is heard on the clarinets and bassoons, and crops up frequently in this and the succeeding movements.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
