Louis Kentner (piano). BBC Symphony Orchestra, conductor, Hyam Greenbaum
(Tenor solo, Bradbridge White )
Busoni began his Rondo arlecchinesco during a visit to America in 1915. In it he has developed some of the principal themes from his opera Arlecchino. In a preface he wrote : ' Harlequin's language is universal. First he states his philosophy brazenly on the trumpet; next he shrills at the world through the piccolo ; threatens with the basses, sight with the violoncello, seeks the remote with violinistic agility.'

: ' CONVERSATION PIECE'

Programme of gramophone records

: 'IT'S ONLY HUMAN NATURE!—

that's what I say ! '
This is the second of twelve broadcasts, each to be prefaced by a short scene from everyday life, and each illustrating the usage of some familiar catch-phrase. Are such phrases just a way of avoiding clear thinking, or do they represent the wisdom of the ages? This is the question to which speakers of wide experience will try to find an answer.

: BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Conducted by Leslie Heward
Bloch's symphonic poem ' Winter-Spring ' is an early work. It was written in 1905, when he was twenty-five years of age. The music is very romantic in character and scored with a masterly sense of colour.
As for ' Sadko ', the story is that of the minstrel of Novgorod who is carried off by the Sea King's daughter and sets the whole submarine kingdom dancing to his music (thus causing an appalling storm on the surface of the ocean). Rimsky-Korsakov's programme is very simple and concise : Calm sea-Sadko's s descent into the depths of the ocean-the Sea King's feast (Sadko's dance tune growing wilder and wilder as the storm arises)—calm sea as at the beginning. Rimsky-Korsakov used the themes of this early orchestral piece in his opera Sadko, composed twenty-eight years later.

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.
