Francis Russell spent his early life in South Wales, starting work in a coal-mine at the age of twelve and remaining there for ten years. While singing at a village concert he was heard by Lewys James, a well-known Welsh baritone, who gave him a three years' contract with the Royal Carl Rosa Opera Company.
Later he studied in Italy, and in 1925 sang in his first International Season at Covent Garden, a performance that he repeated every year until 1932.

' Going to the pictures'

: BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section A) leader Paul Beard
Conducted by Sir .Hamilton Harty
Angus Morrison (piano)
William Walton's ' Sinfonia Concertante' which was written in 1927 was the composer's first important symphonic work. It is extremely attractive music in the modern style. The first and third movements particularlv exhibiting Walton characteristic'snappy rhythms and fondness for cross rhythms. The slow movement shows the composers considerable lyrical gifts.
Government Commission
Sibelius's Fifth Symphony was. composed in 1915 and was the result of a commission from the Finnish
Government to mark the composer s fiftieth birthday. The work was raised in 1916 and practically composed anew' in 1918-19. Its style is very different from that magnificent but unpopular work, the No. 4 in 'A minor, the terseness and concentration of which finS little or no place in the E flat Symphony. Melody and harmony are comparatively straightforward, and the orchestration rich and colourful.

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.
