: ALFRED BARKER'

and his Orchestra
Selection of Nursery Rhymes
Alfred Barker , who was for many years leader of the Halle Orchestra, formed his present combination some two years ago. His purpose was, and still is, to present programmes of light music in a virtuoso manner, to which end some of the finest players in the country were engaged. Barker himself was a pupil of the late Adolph Brodsky and spent some years in Russia before the last war. When there he appeared at a Command Performance before the Tsar. Barker's present Orchestra has many North Country musicians among its personnel and could indeed be described as a combination that has combined the talents of the North and South to the best possible advantage.

: BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Conducted by Warwick Braithwaite
Moeran's tone poem ' Whythorne's Shadow ', scored with exquisite delicacy, is based on the fine and expressive melody of a song by Thomas Whythorne , who lived during the sixteenth century. Moeran has said that the key to his music is the words of the original song :
As thy shadow itself apply'th
To follow thee whereso thou go,
And when thou bends, itself it wry'th, Turning as thou both to and fro : The flatterer doth even so, And shopes himself the same to gloze, With many a fawning and gay show, Whom he would frame for his purpose.
The Magic Mirror'
Hurlstone's fairy suite ' The Magic Mirror ' is based on the story of * Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs '. It was written when the composer was twenty-six years of age and performed by Sir Henry Wood at the Proms and later at the Crystal Palace.

: CHOPIN

Impromptu in A flat, Op. 29 Barcarolle in F sharp, Op. 60
Mazurka in E minor, Op. 17, No. 2 Nocturne in B, Op. 32, No. 1 Rondo in E flat, Op. 16 played by Pouishnoff Left Pouishnoff is one of the greatest living pianists. While he is a virtuoso of all-round excellence, it is in the music of Chopin and Tchaikovsky that he excels as an interpretative artist. As a student he attended the Petrograd Conservatoire and made his public debut at the age of five. By the time he had graduated from the Conservatoire he had won every principal prize for piano playing, including a concert grand piano.
He first played in England in 1921 at the Wigmore Hall in London and since then has been heard all over the country both on the concert platform and before the microphone. Pouishnoff married Dorothy Hildrcth, the pianist last month. She was once a pupil of his.

: BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

Conductor, Ian Whyte
Goethe was one of Beethoven's great idols, and his poem ' Egmont ' inspired Beethoven to write an overture and nine incidental numbers. The overture is probably the most perfect of all Beethoven's concert overtures.
Beethoven wrote to Goethe telling him that ' You will shortly receive from Leipzig through Breitkopf and Hartel the music to " Egmont "-Glorious Egmont, with which, through you, I was again impressed with the same warmth as when I read it, and have set it to music. I should much like to know your opinion of it ; even blame will be profitable for me and for my art, and will be as willingly received as the greatest praise.'

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.
