: Orchestral Music

H. C. Burgess and his Orchestra
Relayed from the Rozel Bandstand, Madeira Cove, Weston-Super Mare.

Tchaikovsky, during a stay in Italy, gathered together some native folk-songs that he found in collections or heard in the streets, and made out of them an Italian Caprice, full of the spirit of peasants in rude health.
The opening Trumpet call is a reminiscence of the military music the Composer heard when he stayed near a barracks in Rome. Then various folk-songs are brought in. The last section of the work consists of a lively Tarantella. One of the folk-tunes looks in for a moment, and then the Tarantella is resumed, and the piece sweeps on to its conclusion.

Original Sketch, 'Whistling and Whistlers'

The Hawaiian guitar is a variation of the true Spanish guitar, and whereas the Spanish guitar is played with the fingers pressing on the fingerboard, the Hawaiian guitar is played with a special piece of steel pressing on the strings. The guitar Mr. Barker uses is nearly a hundred years old, and he composes most of the music he plays.

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.
