A Recital of Gramophone Records


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.
Conductors of the World-X
Introduced by Mr. Victor Hely-Hutchinson
The Concertgebouw Orchestra. Conductor, Willem Mengel berg : Sinfonia (Bach) ; The Ruins of Athens (Turkish March) (Beethoven) ; Les Preludes (Symphonic Poem) (Liszt) ; Waltz, Serenade for String Orchestra (Tchaikovsky) ; Hungarian March (The Damnation of Faust) (Berlioz).
Willem Mengelberg was born in Utrecht in 1871, and has been conductor of the famous Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam since 1895--a period of distinguished public service in one centre almost identical in duration with that of our own Sir Henry Wood at Queen's Hall. Mengelberg is known to us as a very welcome guest conductor-and to other European and American cities too, for he has toured the world extensively. He is undoubtedly one of the outstanding conductors of modern time-some go so far as to say the greatest.

A Recital of Gramophone Records

National Programme Daventry, 1 September 1933 14.15

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.
