: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

From Birmingham
THE CITY OF BIRMINGHAM POLICE BAND, conducted by RICHARD WASSELL Soloist: P.C. WRIGHT
A 'PROGRAMME printed on the title-page of Borodin's score. It is freely translated as follows : —
' In the silence of the sandy steppes of Central A-ia ring the first notes of a peaceful Russian song. One hears, too, the melancholy strains of songs of the Orient : one hears the tramp of horses and camels as they come. A caravan, escorted by Russian soldiers, crosses the vast desert, fearlessly pursuing its long journey, trusting wholly in its Russian warrior-guard.
' Ceaselessly the caravan advances. The Russian songs and the native songs mingle in one har'nony ; their strains are long heard over the desert, and at last are lost in the distance.'
Borodin aims at suggesting the great spaces of the plains by high, held notes, which continue almost unbroken throughout.
The Russian song is heard at the opening. A few moments later the Oriental song comes in.

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.

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.
