Geiger is one of the best-known musical personalities in London, where he has been for the past eleven years-first at the Savoy, where he played the cello, and then at Claridge's, where he has been since 1930 with his own orchestra. He always keeps to the same combination, one cello (himself), two violins, one bass, and one Hungarian cimbalon. He has had years of experience on the air, having first come to the microphone in 1924.

: MOZART'S JUPITER' SYMPHONY

(No. 41, in C, K.551) played by the BBC Orchestra
(Section C)
Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
One of the most amazing feats of Mozart's wonderful career of less
<han thirty-six years was the production within six weeks of three great symphonies, each one of them a masterpiece.
Symphony No. 41 in C was the last of the three, and not only the last but by common consent the greatest of all his symphonies. No one knows who gave it the title ' The Jupiter', but the whole world of music has long accepted It as in every way fitting for so great and spirited a work.

: THE KUTCHER STRING QUARTET

Samuel Kutcher (violin), Max Sal -peter (violin), Leonard Rubens (viola),
George Roth (cello)
Beethoven's Quartet in F minor, Op. 95, was written in 1810, when the composer was forty years of age. It is an interesting work. as it sums up the chief characteristics of Beethoven's middle period-so finely set forth in the three Op. 59 quartets -and at the same time foreshadows his third period which brought forth those magnificent last five quartets.
The manuscript of the Quartet
(which is in the usual four movements). bears the inscription ' Quartetto serioso—1810—in the month of October. Dedicated to Herr von Zmeskall and written in the month of October by his friend, L. v. Beethoven.'
The word ' serious ' does not perhaps fully describe the work, which is full of impassioned expression.

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.
