: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
DAME ETHEL SMYTH 'S musical studies were carried out at the Conservatoire in Leipzig, in which the Mendelssohn tradition was still very strong. Most of her earlier works were performed in Leipzig and her music was well and honourably known on the Continent before we in this country had begun to give it the recognition which is so truly its due. Sir George Henschel , who has done so much valiant pioneer work on behalf of British composers, was among the first to bring forward her music when he was conducting at the Crystal Palace.
The Wreckers is among the distinguished British works which are much better known on the Continent than here. Produced at the Leipzig Opera House in 1906, it met with immediate success; again shortly afterwards at Prague, and at Vienna, it was no less warmly received, making an impression such as few works of British origin have achieved in Germany. ,

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.
