Folk song and the life of the countrvside-these are the dominant influences in the music of George Butterworth , who was killed in the last war at the age of 31. ' The Banks of Green Willow first performed in 1913, is scored for a small orchestra of wood-wind, horns, trombone, harp, and strings. It is built upon two folk tunes. The first, that which gives the work its title, is heard on the clarinet. ' Green Bushes ', the other tune (in the minor key), is given out by the oboe.

His Grace the Lord Archbishop of York

In this series, the Archbishop of York will speak of the whole movement of thought of which the Papal pronouncements form a part ;
Father L. O'Hea , Secretary of the Catholic Social Guild will expound the teaching of the Encyclicals; and Dr. Nathaniel Micklem will speak on the principle ot

: 'SERENADE'

played by the BBC Scottish Orchestra
Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conductor, Guy Warrack
This programme presents some very interesting and beautiful examples of the old traditional form of the serenade as treated by modern composers. The most outstanding is, of course, the Serenade by Elgar, which is a little masterpiece of pure melody and delicate writing.
Warlock's Serenade, which was written in honour of Delius's sixtieth birthday, is composed in the style of the latter master, but it is nevertheless strongly stamped with Warlock's own individuality.
The Glazunov Serenade is more classical in style than the works of Elgar and Warlock.

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.

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.
