Leader, Laurance Turner
Conductor, Gideon Fagan
Felix White is London born and at five started learning the piano under his mother's guidance. In all other musical respects he is practically self-taught. He made his debut as a composer with an overture, ' Shy-lock ', which Sir Henry Wood played at the Promenade concerts. Sir Hubert Parry took a kindly interest in the young composer, and this resulted in the performance of several orchestral and chamber works by the Royal College of Music Patron's Fund.
As repetiteur Felix White worked for four successive seasons with Sir Thomas Beecham at Covent Garden, and for three years was a member of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, playing the piano, harpsichord, and celesta.

at the theatre organ
Lloyd Thomas , as his name suggests, is a Welshman, and has obviously inherited the musical tradition of Wales. He came to London as a youngster, and got his first post as assistant organist at a Woolwich theatre when only thirteen years old. From 1926 until 1930 he toured
England, the Continent, and the Empire with a musical act. His signature tune is ' Let the great big world keep turning '.

: BEETHOVEN

String Quintet in C, Op. 29
(in four movements) and Fugue for String Quartet, Op. 137 played by the Menges String Quintet-Isolde Menges (violin) ; Beatrice Carrelle (violin) ; John Yewe-Dyer (viola) ; Alfred de Reyghere (viola) ;
Ivor James (cello)
Beethoven wrote only one original string quintet, the Op. 29 in C major. He arranged, however, three other works for this combination. The C major Quintet was composed in 1801 and therefore belongs to Beethoven's first period. It is sometimes called the ' Storm ' Quintet because of the semi-quaver passages against the tremolo of the accompaniment in the finale.
' The storm is certainly a dramatic climax to a very beautiful work ', says Marion Scott , 'beautiful both from its themes and the exquisite art with which music and its medium are identified.'

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.
