: SUNDAY ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

BBC Northern Orchestra
Leader, Laurance Turner
Guest Conductor, Leslie Heward
One of the most charming of Hoist's orchestral works is the ' Somerset
Rhapsody'. It was written in 1906 at the request of Cecil Sharp , to
. whom it is dedicated, but it was rewritten in the following year, and first performed in 1910. The work is founded on three Somerset folk songs collected by Cecil Sharp— ' Sheep Shearing Song ', 'High Germany ', and ' The Lovers' Farewell '.
TKese three melodies are arranged in accordance with a rough programme on these lines. The lovely pastoral tune ' Sheep Shearing' suggests a peaceful Somerset landscape. But soon.distant trumpet calls are heard ; a troop of soldiers is approaching. A recruit takes farewell of his sweetheart. Finally the march dies away again in the distance and the piece ends softly as it began.

: BBC presents SOLOMON

Variations on the theme of a famous pianist
BBC Orchestra
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Narrator, Stuart Hibberd
Presented by Clifton Helliwel ! and Leslie Baily
Solomon first appeared at Quetn's Hall, London, at the age of eight, and before he was twelve years old he had no fewer than thirteen concertos in his repertoire and had given several recital programmes. At fifteen he very wisely made a temporary retirement so that he could devote all his time to studying. In 1921 he made his second debut in London, and from that date his success has been rapid and complete.

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.
