: A RECITAL

by Leon Goossens (oboe) and John Cockerill (harp)
It may well be claimed that Leon Goossens is the finest oboe player in the world. His peculiar beauty of tone and exquisite phrasing give him a place alongside such great artists as Kreisler and Casals. Since 1932 he has been principal oboe of the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Sir Thomas Beecham.
John Cockerill , who is one of Britain's leading- harpists comes from
Manchester. He began his musical career at a very early age as a member of the Halle Orchestra under Hans Richter. For many years now he has been a harpist and director of the London Symphony Orchestra, and he has often broadcast in various light music combinations, such as the Lyra Quartet and the Leslie Brideewater Harp Quintet.

in 'LEPANTO'
A ballad by G. K. Chesterton arranged for broadcasting by Val Gielgud
G. K. Chesterton 's ' Lepanto' has often been voted one of the greatest dramatic poems in the English language. His powerful use of imagery has never been better than in this stirring poem. At the Battle of Lepanto in 1571 Don John of Austria headed a battle fleet contributed from the Italian seaports, the King of Spain, and the Pope, and freed Christendom from the greatest menace it had ever known. Lepanto was certainly one of the world's decisive battles, and Chesterton found in it subject-matter suitable to his extraordinary virility and poetic gusto.

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.

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.
