It is always interesting to hear a composer interpreting his own works. Michael Head , who will be heard singing some of his own songs, was born at Eastbourne in "1900. He studied singing under Fritz Marston and joined the staff of the Royal, Academy of Music in 1925 as a professor of the pianoforte. He has broadcast frequently, singing groups of his own songs. He was invited in 1929 to adjudicate at the first Musical Competition Festival in Kingston, Jamaica, and paid a return visit in 1933. He is known chiefly by his songs, which are sung by the leading singers and included in musical festivals all over the world.

(Section A)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
The ' Romeo and Juliet ' overture, one of Tchaikovsky's first important compositions, was written in the early eighteen-seventies at a period when the composer was in close touch with the leaders of the ' nationalist ' group in St. Petersburg, particularly with Balakirev, Rimsky-Korsakdv, and the art critic Stassov.
The subject of the overture was actually suggested to the composer by Stassov, who had married into an English family and was a passionate admirer of English literature in general, and Shakespeare in particular.

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.
