Carl Fried>ich Abel, who was born at Cothen in 1725 and died in London in 1787, was one of the most famous viola da gamba players of his day.
This Symphony in E flat was originally scored for an orchestra consisting of two oboes, two horns, strings, and harpsichord. In a Radio TIMES article it was pointed out that ' the ideas are not worked out with any great elaboration, and the whole work is slight by comparison with Haydn's mature symphonies. But the essence of symphonic structure is already there.'

: ATLANTIC FERRY

1840-1940
Devised by George Blake
Produced by John Gough
Samuel Cunard came to England in 1838 to secure the Admiralty contract for carrying mails across the' Atlantic and to run steamers from Liverpool to Halifax, and thence to Boston in the United States. Ships for this adventurous enterprise had to be built, and he brought with him an introduction to Robert Napier of Glasgow, the eminent marine engineer. When the Britannia sailed from Liverpool in 1840, Cunard himself was on board. Much happened in the hundred years that followed, up to the days of the Queen Mary and the Queen Elizabeth.
Many listeners will remember that
George Blake gave the broadcast commentary at the launching of the Queen Mary and sailed in her to New York on her maiden voyage.
Pictures of some famous Cunard mail steamers through the century will be found on page 3.

: VAUGHAN WILLIAMS

A recital of his songs by Trefor Jones (tenor)
Three songs from Hugh the Drover
Hugh's song of the road Sweet little linnet Gaily I go to die
. Serenade from The Poisoned Kiss
The vagabond (from Songs of Travel) Linden Lea
Vaughan Williams 's fondness for the countryside and its songs is well known. Besides collecting many folk tunes, he has written some of his own, some in the folk idiom and the others, like the ' Songs of Travel expressing in his own personal style his love of the open road. He has set the words of many English poets with fine understanding and sympathy and has given us something typically British in the healthy virility and perfection of style of his settings.
Trefor Jones is a Welshman, born at Cymmer, Port Talbot, and began to sing, as many famous soloists have done, as a boy soprano. His career after that seems to have been strictly according to pattern : he won a free open scholarship which took him to the Royal College of Music, and studied there for five years. While he was there he got a good deal of operatic experience as the principal tenor in the operas given from time to time at the college theatre. He created the part of Hugh in Hugh the Drover, and took part in the first performance of. The Poisoned Kiss.

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
