Gwydion Holbrooke (bassoon)
The members of the Modem Wind Quintet are drawn from London s three leading orchestras—B.B.C., London
Philharmonic and London Symphony. Formed three years ago for the purpose of creating interest in the large repertory of classical and modern chamber music for wind instruments, the Modern Wind Quintet spares no effort to attain a standard of performance usually associated with that of a first-rate string quartet.
The programme this evening includes a Quintet by Franz Reizenstein , who studied under Hindemith at the Berlin State High School of Music, and is now studying under Vaughan Williams at the Royal College of Music.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
