Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Solomon (piano)
Rerlio/s genius is shown at his best in his Dramatic Symphony 'Romeo and Juliet ', which was first performed in 1839. The two pieces to be heard this evening are brilliant examples of picturesque tone painting. The 'Queen Mab' scherzo is worthv of a place alnnff.de Mendelssohn's Scherzo from 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', and 'Capulet's Fett'. which describes
Romeo's entrance to h.s enemy . house while the festivities are at their highest, is a truly vivid conception of the scene.

: ' BLACK-OUTS FOR THE BLACK-OUT'

A new edition of the Littlest Re.vue with Madeleine Christie , Jack Drummond , Jack Sinclair , Edith Stevenson , James Urquhart , Mollie Weir , Cyril Wells
Produced by Moultrie R. Kelsall
The revival of this popular series is particularly appropriate now that the evenings are drawing in, and most of the daytime workers' leisure time is spent behind drawn curtains. Listeners may remember that producer Moultrie Kelsall filled these revues in miniature with a sequence of songs and lightning sketches, each with a pungent-and in some cases a refreshingly unexpected--climax.

: WILLIAM BYRD

Mass for three voices (1588)
Sung by the BBC Singers
Conductor, Leslie Woodgate
I Kyrie Eleison. 2 Gloria in Excelsis. 3 Credo. 4 Sanctus. 5 Benedictus.
6 Agnus Dei
Byrd composed three Masses, but the when and wherefore remain clouded in obscurity. Even the dates of publication are not known. The chief character of these Masses in general, and the three-.part Mass in particular, is the flowing beauty of the part-writing and the freedom of the rhythm, which had yet to become so rigidly tied to the bar line as it is in modem times.
Another feature worth noticing is that each melodic line is a self-contained melody, but at the same time the melodic lines are combined so artfully that they form a sequence of beautiful harmonies.

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.

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.
