A Light Orchestral Programme


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.
BORN in the South of England in 1872, Hermann Lohr has for long held a foremost place in the affections of English singers and audiences. It is no exaggeration to say that some of his songs are known everywhere. As is only natural, this orchestral Suite is song-like in character, and even the names of the movements, indicating clearly what their composer would have them mean for us, all suggest that he had singing in mind as he wrote them. It is, of course, one of the best compliments one can pay to a melody to say that it would lend itself well to singing.

Love Poems for Orchestra, ' Stars of the East' Chant at Sunset; Song of the Dancer ; Song of the Birds ; Eastern Night Song - Hermann Löhr

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.
