THE life of the bees is a wonderful blend of -L factory, office and domestic organization, and their ' spring cleaning ' is carried out with that thoroughness and efficiency that distinguish all their work.

: A LIGHT CLASSICAL CONCERT

MILDRED WATSON (Soprano)
THE LENA MASON STRING QUARTET:
LENA MASON (1st Violin), REGINALD. MORLEY (2nd Violin), MURIEL HART (Viola),
ALEXANDER Niposi (Violoncello)
BOCCHERINI might be called, without dis. respect, a wholesale music-merchant. Probably no other composer in the world's history wrote such a mass of music in the classical' forms-20 Symphonies, 54 String Trios, 95 String Quartets, 125 String Quintets, and so on-nearly 500 instrumental works in all. Yet he died in poverty.
Amongst the lush growth of his compositions Time with his sickto has, alas! ruthlessly mowed. Of all his works, few of us know anything save a certain famous Minuet. There is much good-humoured, mellifluous music in his works, easy and pleasant to listen to, as will be ' generally agreed after this Quartet has been played.

: The Children's Hour: The Wraggle Taggle Gipsies, O!

George Pizzey will sing of 'The Wedding of Sara Lee' and 'Jack of All Trades' (with certain other songs to suit). The story of 'How Maggie ran Away' (from 'The Mill on the Floss') will be told. There will be other verse and stories to 'Fill the bill' and the 'Fortune' of an 'Aunt' will be told.

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.
