Conductor,
B. WALTON O'DONNELL
WALTER GLYNNE (tenor) Few short orchestral pieces have had a more interesting history than Mussorgsky's ' March, with Turkish trio '. The first version of the March dates from 1872, when Mussorgsky, Borodin, Rimsky-Korsakov, and Cui were invited to collaborate in the composition of an opera, Mlada. The commission was never executed, but this March, a ' procession of princes ', was part of Mussorgsky's share of the work. The chief melody is a Volga boatmen's song, not unlike the Volga boatmen's song in character. Originally, the March had a different trio.
In 1880 another commission came along. Various Russian composers were invited to write music for tableaux vivants commemorating the silver jubilee of Tsar Alexander II. Mussorgsky chose as his subject the taking of Kars from the Turks, and used his old Mlada march, providing it with a new middle section based on a Turkish theme.

: 'Abraham Lincoln'

(From Midland)
Abraham Lincoln was originally produced at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, just a month before the Armistice. As Sir Barry Jackson recalls in his article on p. 6, the play scored a big immediate success, and it has since become world-famous for, topical as it happened to be, it possesses all the elements of enduring art.
The play tells the life-story of the greatest American President; the man who rose literally from log-cabin to White House, and then found himself faced with the gravest crisis in his country's history. John Drinkwater carries Lincoln's story through the ordeal of the Civil War to his tragic death in 1865, which forms one of the most dramatic scenes ever put on the stage.
Making the minimum of scenic demands, Abraham Lincoln is first-rate radio material. It will be produced tonight by Val Gielgud , Drama Director of the BBC, and Herbert M. Prentice , who is the producer at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre.

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.
