: Some Light Music

by Kenneth A. Wright.
The Station Orchestra
conducted by the Composer

Listeners are already familiar with some of the graceful, light pieces of Kenneth Wright, a young Composer of today. His B.B.C. Waltz (based on the three notes representing the Corporation's initials) has become quite well known.

The Orchestra
Entr'acte, 'Under the Willows'

Muriel Herbert (Soprano)
Songs with Strings and Piano (From The Phantom Castle and Other Songs of Childhood)
The Warming (From The Phantom Castle and Other Songs of Childhood)
Pan (From The Phantom Castle and Other Songs of Childhood)

Jessie Cormack (Pianoforte)
The Gavotte in Pierrot's Garden (From Pantomime Pictures)
Columbine's Dream Dance .... (From Pantomime Pictures)
The Juggler (From Pantomime Pictures)

The Pantomime Pictures were originally conceived as orchestral movements, and have since been arranged for Piano. The Juggler was suggested by the favourite feat of keeping several balls revolving in a small circle and occasionally throwing one high into the air-a motion here translated into music.

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.
