ROGER CLAYSON with Piano

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
D USSLAN AND LUDMILLA (1842) is founded on a fairy tale by the Russian pbet Pushkin, but the author was killed in a duel before he could revise it for Glinka's use, and various other people had a hand in the libretto. After two performances, at which the work was a failure, it became a great success.
The First Main Tune is given out, after a few bars of Introduction, by the Full Orchestra, with great energy. This is worked up a little, one part ' imitating ' another, and then the broad, swinging Second Main Tune (based on one of Russian's songs) comes on the Bassoons and lower Strings.
These tunes are developed in a contrapuntal fashion that shows the effect of the teaching of Glinka's master, Dchn, who was a great Bach student... „ ...".....
It is just before the Coda that we hear the ' whole-tone scale,' blared out by the heaviest, bass instruments. After it, the Overture quickly rattles on to a rollicking conclusion.

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.
