: New Friends in Music

Arnold Bax
Introduced by PERCY SCHOLES and HARRIET COHEN (Pianoforte)
BAX is a Celt, and his music has often the dreamy reflectiveness of his race. Yet, like other Celts, he rouses himself at times, shakes off his introspection and shows himself active and excited. In all his moods his best interpreter, so far as his piano music is concerned, is Harriet Cohen. It appeals to her ; she sees far into the composer's mind and can make us see with her. And so, with Harriet Cohen to play and the B.B.C.'s Music Critic to say a word or two of quiet introduction to each piece, there is a good chance that many of us will knit up a new friendship, and one that will last us our lives.

She wanders into the room in a disconsolate manner carrying a large bag of shopping, and has under her arm a bundle of dirty linen. ' 'The Swell' enters.

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
