: TORQUAY MUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA

(leader : Camille J. Bogaert ) : conductor, Ernest W. Goss , with Irene Kohler (piano)
From the Pavilion, Torquay
Grieg wrote the Piano Concerto in A minor in the first year of his marriage, and it speaks eloquently of his happiness. He played the solo part himself on his first appearance in London in 1888 at a concert of the Royal Philharmonic Society. The Concerto is scored with the utmost delicacy and vividness of colour, and the piano part is brilliant and effective without being merely showy.

: SAINT-SAENS

Violin Concerto No. 3, in B minor played by Laurance Turner and the BBC Northern Orchestra, conducted by Leslie Heward
A fluent composer and excellent crafts-man, Saint-Saens gave his attention to almost every form of composition. Until quite recently his five piano concertos and three violin concertos were frequently heard in England. The Violin Concerto No. 3, in B minor, is a melodious and elegantly constructed work, and is most effectively written for the solo instrument. It was first performed by Sarasate in 1881.

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 from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
