: ' The Two Talismans '

(From Birmingham)
An Eastern Comedy in One Act, by GEORGE CALDERON
On a hilltop outside an Arabian city there sits at the entrance to his hut one Hafiz, smoking a hookah. In peaceful contemplation he regards the white roof-tops which lie shimmering below. Life in > the East is never hurried, and towards the close of one's days it becomes even more tranquil and philosophical. A Figure leaning on a staff, and carrying a bunch of roses, approaches. It is friend Hariri.

: A LIGHT ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

(From Birmingham)
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA, conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
IF we do not often hear the larger works of Moszkowski (1854-1925). he is a familiar friend to very many who have played his pianoforte duets, From Foreign Parts, or, of recent years, heard his light orchestral music broadcast. He composed also in the larger forms-a a Symphony, Joan of Arc, Concertos for Pianoforte and Violin, a Ballet, and the Opera, Boabdil, The Last King of the Moors. This is founded on an incident in the war of the Spaniards and the Moors in. the fifteenth century. The Ballet Music taken from the work consists of three pieces, the first of which we are to hear. It is a Spanish Malaguena (in three time, with a characteristic rhythm beginning with whole beat, two halves, whole.)

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
