Quadrille, Bonnie Dundee *
THE name of this once favourite quadrille has nothing to do with the kindly and hospitable city on the Tay. Distinguished and handsome as many of its buildings are, and fine though its situation is on the shores of a noble estuary, it is not as a whole so obviously beautiful as to suggest the epithet ' bonnie ' as the most strikingly suitable adjective to apply to it.
The reference is to Graham of Claverhouse,
Viscount Dundee , one of the most romantic and heroic personages in the Scottish tradition, and indeed one of the most gallant figures in the whole of British history. In parts of Scotland, to be sure, there are families to this day where his name is still held up to execration for the ruthless way in which the law was enforced against the Covenanters under his regime But in the light of recent researches it appears that he himself had no real responsibility for the brutal part of that persecution, and that he was actuated only by a lofty sense of his duty as a loyal soldier.
And, by all accounts, he was one whose bearing and soldierly character rightly earned the affectionate name of ' Bonnie Dundee. '

: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

EGGERT STEFANSSON (Tenor)

Conducted by B. WALTON
O'DONNELL
GRIEG, the first of the great composers to give
Norwegian music a place of its own, and still today regarded as the representative Scandinavian composer, traces his descent from a Scottish ancestor who spelt his name Greig. Keenly interested in folk-music of his own country as he was, his music is all strongly Norwegian in character, and the simple melody and rhythm of his tunes have had much to do with their universal popularity.
The first of the Dances in this Suite has a sort of hornpipe rhythm on which a slow and rather wistful tune breaks in, though the beginning and end of the Dance are lively and vigorous.
The second, of daintier character, begins with a little tune on the oboe, suggesting a shepherd's pipe. It, too, has its vigorous moments, but on the whole is of a slight and more delicate texture.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
