Alan Frank's Suite for two clarinets consists of a prelude, march, rondo, dirge, and finale, all of which are very short in length and characteristic of the composer's light and epigrammatic style. Originally written for, and dedicated to, Frederick Thurston and Ralph Clarke, of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, this suite has been both published and recorded.
Mr. Frank is a clarinettist himself and for a short period he studied under Charles Draper and Frederick Thurston, but as a composer, like William Walton, Mr. Frank is self-taught. Besides this suite two other notable compositions that have been published are 'March for piano duet' and 'Music for piano'. His activities also include music publishing and musical journalism. His keen and informative writing is well known to Radio Times readers. His wife is that promising young British composer, Phyllis Tate, who has already made a name for herself on the Continent as well as in Britain.

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.
