BERLIOZ was rather severe on Herold, who, he declared, lacked a style of his own. He dismissed Zampa ' as not real French, German, or Italian music—only' Parisian music.'
If Herold was not highly inspired, he certainly worked hard enough, for in a life of a little over forty years he composed at least a score of operas.
The favourite overture to ' Zampa ' is made out of tunes from the Opera rather loosely strung together.

THE distinction of inventing the Nocturne belongs not to Chopin, but to the Irishman, John Field. The Nocturnes of Field have not lost their charm, but Chopin had a wider emotional range and a finer feeling for the possibilities of the piano than had Field. Though Chopin's first Nocturnes are not unlike those of the Irishman, he very soon shows his developing imaginative power and technical freedom.
The Nocturnes, like many other of Chopin's pieces, are capable of bearing a good many poetical interpretations. Many of them may reasonably he interpreted as love songs. And we may imagine the composer, as he distilled this sweet music, phrasing it with his own tender yearnings, for Chopin was often in love. ANDREW CLAYTON Songs
IN the days of our parents' youth Strauss had a magic name, whether it were that of the Johann who saw Queen Victoria come to the throne, or. his more famous son Johann (1825-1899), who composed ' On the Beautiful Blue Danube ' and over four hundred other dances. Johann, the younger, eclipsed his father, and became the most popular musician in Vienna in the middle of last century.
As a youth he nearly took up banking, for his father did not wish his son to go into the musical profession; but waltzes were in the blood, and would como out. Young Johann had been writing them since he was six and he kept on doing so for nearly sixty years.
Nowadays waltzes are out of fashion as a form of popular dance music. But considering what the modern fashion is, to be out of it for a few minutes may be appreciated by many as a restful and pleasant experience.

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.
