SIR LANDON RONALD comes of musical stock, for he is the son of Henry Russell , whose Cheer, boys, cheer and A life on the ocean wave were so popular in their day.
After his period of study at the Royal College of Music, he toured as Solo Pianist in Wormser's Prodigal Son, a musical play without words, then conducted at Covent Garden, played Melba's accompaniments in America, and has in the last thirty years become famous as a Conductor. Particularly is his name associated with the Royal Albert Hall Orchestra, of which he is the permanent chief.

: CONTEMPORARY BRITISH COMPOSERS

interpreted by GORDON BRYAN
EUGENE GOOSSENS: 'Ships'
Concert Study; Hurdy-Gurdy Man from 'Kaleidoscope'; Marionette Show from 'Four Conceits'
EUGENE GOOSSENS (born 1893), though of Flemish stock, is English by birth, and entirely so by adoption. He has inherited from his father great skill as a Conductor, and is an efficient String player and Pianist. He has written much strikingly individual music, and is definitely a 'modernist,' but there is nothing problematic in most of his works.
The three Ships pieces are entitled respectively The Tug, The Tramp, and The Liner.
The Hurdy-Gurdy is a faithful and amusing reproduction of the halting strains of a dilapidated street organ.
In The Marionette Show we have a glimpse apparently of a wrangle among the puppets, for after a little jerky music that depicts their odd movements, we end up with what seem to be blows and squeals.

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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
