Hughes Macklin (Tenor)
Orrea Pernel (Violin)
The Wireless Military Band
Conducted by B. Walton O'Donnell
Anton Rubinstein (1829-94) was not content with the fame of a great pianist that was his. He himself wrote music, not aa a mere side-line of a great executant, but on a vast scale, with the loftiest of ideas and ideals.
His Opera The Demon, produced in St. Petersburg in 1875, reached London in 1881, when Rubinstein was giving some of his famous historical pianoforte recitals here. The plot concerns the efforts of a demon, an elemental spirit, to win a princess. The music owes some of its attractiveness to its Eastern idiom and colouring.

9.15 Mr. Richard Hughes: A Travel Talk
As a poet, Mr. Hughes is well known to all lovers of literature, but to listeners in particular he is remembered as one of the first, if not the very first, of authors to write a play specifically for the Radio. The combination of Mr. Hughes' travelling experiences and his literary ability should make a Talk of unusual interest.

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.
