Conducted by Ian Whyte
In 1916 the Japanese dancer, Michio Ito , produced a ballet at the London Coliseum, and Hoist wrote a number of short dance pieces specially for it. Ito furnished the composer with real Japanese themes, and all the pieces, except the third, are founded on these. The third has melodies of Hoist's own invention.
The numbers are: Prelude. 'The
Song of the Fisherman ' ; ' Ceremonial Dance ' : ' 'Dance of the Marionettes ' ; Interlude, Song of the Fisherman ' ; ' Dance under the Cherrv Tree' ; Finale. ' Dance of the Wolves'.

(Section C) led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
In the early days of the symphony, when it was in its experimental stage, the most important contemporary instrumental form was the serenade, from which the symphony is derived. Mozart's Serenade No. 9, in D major was completed at Salzburg in 1779 and was evidently written for some special occasion. Scored for two flutes, two oboes, two bassoons, two horns, two trumpets, strings, and timpani, it is written on quite an elaborate scale: there are six movements, including a sinfonia concertante. which falls into two sections

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.
