: ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

Conductor, Gideon Fagan
Haydn
Nocturne for flute, oboe, horns, and strings
The title. Nocturne (Notturno), for this work is to be taken not in the essentially romantic sense as used by Chopin, but as a piece usually played at night, of a quiet, gentle character. In form, however, the classical nocturne differed little from the serenade, cassation, and early symphony. Haydn's Nocturne to be played this afternoon is the only one he wrote for this group of instruments, but he has written several for the hurdy-gurdy.

: 'TONIGHT'S TALK'

by John Hilton
A serving soldier who died of wounds at Etaples in 1916 left a legacy which provided the financial basis for the National Council of Social Service, formed just twenty-one years ago to encourage voluntary work of all kinds.
Tonight John Hilton will talk about the service which every citizen can give through his voluntary organisation whether Allotments Society, Women's Institute, Sports Club, British Legion, or one of the hundred other groups which are part of the richness and variety of our national life.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
