A Light Classical Concert

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.
The Station Trio, Ina Kirkhope (contralto), and Jack Werner (pianoforte)
in a homage to Martin Luther, who is credited with the invention of the phrase, '"Wine, Woman and Song"

There are five sections to this joyous waltz of Strauss, one of the best of his hundreds of dance tunes. There are words to it, which might be very nearly sacrilegious were it not for the naive, almost childlike, simplicity which inspires them. The first section sets forth how the three gifts of the title were ordained by a wise Providence for mankind's blessing. The next is a Rhapsody in praise of wine and good cheer, when wisely used, and the third glorifies true love and wedded bliss. The fourth embodies a sentiment which might well be taken to heart, the benefits to body, soul and spirit, of care-free singing, especially when happy voices join in harmony, and the last is a summing up of what, has gone before.

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.
