: A Light Orchestral Concert

(From, Birmingham)
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by FRANK CANTELL
AMONG the many plays of Shakespeare, for which
Sir Edward German wrote inoidontal music, was Much Alto ab?ut Nothing, produced by the late Sir George Alexander in 1898 at the St. James' Theatre. No more need be said of it than this, that it is admirably suited to the merry play, and that the dances, of which two are to be played this evening, aro- instinct with all the grace and charm which have made German's music so popular.

PATTISON'S SALON ORCHESTRA Directed by NORRIS STANLEY
Relayed from the Cafe Restaurant, Corporation
Street
BEFORE beginning to devote himself wholly to composition Mr. Eric Coatos had a long experience as an orchestral player under the best auspices, an experience which he knows well how to turn to account in his own music. Gifted with a happy senso of melody, and a very deft and light touch, ho is particularly successful in music of the more lighthearted order, and his Suite From the Countryside lives up to its title in the happiest way.

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.
