A MILITARY BAND 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 WIRELESS MILITARY BAND, < omlucted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
MARIE WILSON (Violin)
THE SHEFFIELD MALE VOICE CHOIR, conducted by Mr. ARTHUR BUTLER
THE RUINS OF ATHENS was an indifferent play by Kotzebue, written for the opening of a theatre, for which Beethoven was asked to compose incidental music. We hear scarcely anything of this nowadays, except this Turkish March. It may be remarked that the chief work of ruination in Athens, the damage to the Parthenon, was wrought not by a Turkish, but by a Venetian explosive.
BERLIOZ had a white-hot imagination always ready to pour out brilliant ideas in the most grandiloquent way. Add to that the fact that he hart at his finger-tips an amazing knowledgo of orchestration, and you may well expect that in this picture of A Roman Carnival, in the sixteenth century, he will make you seo the gorgeous affair as vividly as he did when he wrote the Overture.

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.
