: CHAMBER MUSIC

(From Birmingham)
THE winsome sweetness and purity of Franck's mystical nature shine out in almost everything he wrote.
His only Violin Sonata is in four Movements, which have a certain amount of material in common.

: DAISY SHORROCKS and NIGEL DALLAWAY

THE Second Violin
Sonata by Delius, one of his later compositions, is a work which does not demand great intellectual effort (though some effort is necessary for its full understanding). Even if one does not choose to regard it as one of his greatest works, it has much charm, and one could hardly choose a better work to play to anyone who wishes to learn to understand the least revolutionary of ' modern ' music.
This is, surely, music of which beauty is the chief characteristic. There arc no great contrasts, but the work is rather a continuous, quiet dialogue between Violin and Piano, which only occasionally grows animated.

: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

From Birmingham
THE CITY OF BIRMINGHAM POLICE BAND
Conducted by RICHARD WASSELL (Soloist, P.C. COOK )
SMETANA, the first
Bohemian composer to achieve distinction, was a great lover of his native land. He wrote a set of orchestral pieces, entitled My Country, celebrating in music its natural beauties and its history and legends.
This Tone Poem, the second of that series, is a description of the progress of the chief river of Bohemia, the Vltava (or Moldau, as we know it), from its source in the depths of the forest until, after tumbling over rapids and streaming past frowning fortresses, it joins the Elbe as a broad, rolling river. It witnesses on the way typical scenes of Bohemian life-a hunt and a peasant wedding; and by moonlight it spies forest nymphs dancing in a glade.

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.
