: LYAPUNOV

Sextet for pianoforte and strings,
Op. 63
1 Allegro maestoso. 2 Scherzo: Allegro vivace. 3 Nocturne: Lento ma non troppo. 4 Finale: Allegro risoluto played by Jean Pougnet (violin), David Wise (violin), Frederick Riddle (viola), Anthony Pini (violoncello), Victor Watson (double bass), and John Wills (pianoforte)
Lyapunov (1859-1924) was a pupil, first of Nicholas Rubinstein , then of Balakirev. He turned most of his attention to orchestral and piano music, but towards the end of his life he wrote the present Sextet for strings and piano. It is a very attractive work, particularly the romantic slow movement (Nocturne). The first and last movements have a certain Brahmsian flavour.

: Basil Radford and Naunton Wayne in 'CROOKS' TOUR'

An adventure in six parts
Story and dialogue by Frank Launder , Sidney Gilliat , John Watt , and Max Kester. Music by Kenneth Leslie -
Smith. Lyrics by Max Kester
Part 1-1 All Abroad!'
Cast in order of appearance
Tourists, waiters, etc.
Hugo Rignold and his Orchestra
Production by Vernon Harris
Here is the first instalment of a new serial thriller introducing those vague, cricket-loving Englishmen, Charters and Caldicott, who, created by Naunton Wayne and Basil Radford , delighted picturegoers in that breathless film The Lady Vanishes. That they are to broadcast in the parts they made so peculiarly their own on the screen is real good news for listeners.
Once again Charters and Caldicott are on a world tour, on their way back to England. In the Arabian Desert they are on their way to visit one of the lost cities, when thei' charabanc breaks down. They meet a Sheik's caravan. He turns out to have been at the same school with them, and they ride triumphantly to Baghdad on camels. By which you will see that there is colour and laughter here. But it is in a cabaret at Baghdad that all the trouble starts. They are mistaken for spies and handed plans of military importance cunningly hidden on a record.
See this week's Radio Miscellany for more news about this serial.

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.

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.
