(Leader. Henry Datyner )
Conducted by John Coulling
John Mayer , who is Anglo-Indian by birth, studied at the Royal Academy of Music and then joined the violins of the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
The ' Raga Jayajavanti ' is the third movement of his Dance Suite, 'Ramayana,' for full orchestra. The Raga is an Indian musical scale, of which there are 132, the basis of all Indian classical music. Jayajavanti is a name derived from the musical scale called Jijavanta, after the companion to the God of Love. ' Dressed in yellow, his forehead elaborately marked with saffron, Jijavanta plays charmingly his heart-enchanting flute.' There is no harmony; the music is entirely rhythmic or melodic, apart from a constant drone accompaniment.

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.
