Beethoven
ORCHESTRA Overture, Prometheus
MOISEIWITSCH AND ORCHESTRA Pianoforte concerto No. 3, flat (Emperor)
From the Royal Albert Hall , London In the last and biggest of his five piano concertos, the so-called
Emperor Beethoven made several innovations in the traditional form, particularly in the first movement, which is symphonic in style.
The slow movement is in effect a series of free variations on a melody of exceptional beauty and the last movement is a brilliant rondo, which is linked with the slow movement by a beautiful transition passage. The theme heard at the outset, gay and swift-footed sets the pace for a movement which is throughout in Beethoven's brightest good spirits.

: Arthur Askey in . BIG'S BROADCAST '

Radio's 'silly little man' takes over for half-an-hour
Accompanied (if they can keep up with him) by Billy Tement and the Dance Orchestra
Produced (if he'll listen to them) by Harry S. Pepper and Gordon
Crier
This is the first of eight weekly broadcasts in which Arthur Askey makes a welcome (he hopes) return to the air. Nobody knows what will happen, least of all Harry Pepper and Gordon Crier , the producers who are inclined to believe tha
Arthur knows less than anybody. So it's every man for himself. The silly little man ' has promised new ideas, new songs, new laughs ; and there is no doubt he will keep his promise.

: ENGLISH MUSIC

performed by Parry Jones (tenor) and the Griller String Quartet :
Sidney Griller (violin) Jack O'Brien (violin) Philip Burton (viola) Colin Hampton (cello)
Vaughan Williams 's song cycle On Wenlock Edge' consists of six settings for tenor, piano, and string quartet of poems from Housman's
'A Shropshire Lad'. It was first performed in London in 1909. The cycle may well be described as a masterpiece of the composer's early period. The music is a perfect interpretation of the tragic beauty of Housman's words and is a masterly exposition of descriptive writing in the more subtle meaning of the term.

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.
