'Dressing Madame Tussauds'
MR. NORRIS is admirably fitted to be a member of the Club of Queer Trades. He is. incidentally, qualified as an architect and the owner of a diploma in dramatic art, but his real speciality is historical costume. One of his most interesting achievements was the dressing of the vast historical gallery at the new Madame Tussaud 's.

: B.B.C. PROMENADE CONCERT

Relayed from the Queen's Hall
Sir HENRY WOOD and his SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
BACH wrote his sixth Brandenburg Concerto in six parts, two for the Viola da Braccia (' arm Viol '-—played as the Violin is played), two for the Viola da Gamba (or ' knee Viol '-a forerunner of the Violoncello), one for the ordinary Violoncello and one for the ' Violone ' (Double Bass), with a part for a keyboard instrument, to help fill in the harmonies. Nowadays the parts are divided into two for Violas, three for Violoncellos and one for Double Bass. The absence of Violins (a very rare thing in a work for Strings) gives a curious colour to the tone.
There arc three Movements. In the first there is great activity of the closely woven parts. In the Second (slow) Movement the Violas discuss a singing theme, while the lower strings accompany. The last Movement is in the style of a Gigue.
CARL PHILIP EMANUEL BACH (1714-
1788). the third son of the great Bach, is sometimes called the ' Berlin,' or ' Hamburg ' Bach.
This Concerto, which was apparently not published until its composer had been dead nearly one hundred and thirty years, was originally written for a ' forte piano ' (an early form of the pianoforte we know), and a harpsichord, the pianoforte's plucked-string forerunner; the orchestra consisted of Strings, two Flutes and two Horns. There are three Movements, two very quick ones, with a slow one between, which leads without a break into the last.
THE fourth Brandenburg Concerto, which is not quite so frequently heard as are some of the others, has three Movements-a quick one, a graceful slow one, in which the Flutes hold the melodic line, and a magnificent fugal Finale.

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.
