Carnival Overture, Op. 92
DALE SMITH (Baritone)
Leave Me Alone Springtide The Mower
Slavonic Dances (Xos. I and from First Set),
Op. 46
Sonatina-Indian Canzonetta and Finale
IN several of Dvorak's works written after his stay in America we find the influence of the native tunes (chiefly those of the Negroes) that he heard there. His ' Nigger ' Quartet (Op. 96) and New World Symphony are perhaps the best-known examples.
This Sonatina, which is Op. 100, has a Movement generally known as the ' Indian Canzonetta,' in which a serious, rather plaintive tune is used, that probably came from one of those native American sources from which the Composer drew other inspirations about this time. It is not, however, certain that the Movement's title was given to it by Dvorak himself.
The ' New World ' Symphony-Last Movement
Biblical Songs, Op. 99
Clouds and Darkness; Lord, Thou art my Refuge; Hear my Prayer; The Lord is my Shepherd; I will Sing new Songs of Gladness

A Play written for Broadcasting by IDA M. DOWNING
Characters :
IN this is portrayed the dream of an English girl, spending a holiday in Venice. She is taken back to the ancient days of the city's glory, and views the .sights as they then were.
The action is laid on a stone terrace outside one of the large houses on the Venice Lagoon in summer time. The tide is high, and the lapping of the water is faintly heard. The calls of the gondoliers and their music is occasionally wafted across by the light Italian breeze.


Gondolier (a Shade): Edgar Lane
The Singer in a Boat: David Scott

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.
