: An Organ Recital

Relayed from First Presbyterian Church
Rosemary Street
John Ireland is, amongst other of his many activities, an organist. For many years he was the organist of St. Luke's Church, Chelsea. Listeners to recent organ recital broadcasts have heard the very beautiful new Compton organ recently built in the church. This, unfortunately for Ireland, was not his instrument. He played on a two manual instrument which, pending the removal of an old and dilapidated instrument and the building of the new one, was installed temporarily.

The Carnival of Animals is a piece of fun, a parody, a genial satire, and has, or had, implications hidden in the music. For a long time Saint-Saens would not allow it all to be published, though he released from the Suite for general use that graceful, charming little piece, The Swan. Many of the numbers are supposed to reflect the idiosyncrasies of some of his friends and associates, others to burlesque musical conventions. The whole suite is the jolly kind of music that one would expect from little sound 'pictures of birds, animals, domestic fowl, and 'pianists'.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.
