: CITY OF BIRMINGHAM ORCHESTRA

Conductor, Leslie Heward. Louis Kentner (piano)
Completed in 1830, when Chopin was twenty years of age, the F minor Concerto was really his first concerto, is the so-called No. 1 in E minor was written afterwards but was the first to be published. Although structurally it follows the highly conventionalised pattern of Hummel, the scheme of harmony and modulation is bold and original, and the brilliant and individual treatment of the piano must have at first appe'ared startling.

: HOW CHRISTIANS WORSHIP

3-Worship in the Early Church talk by the Rev. E. C. Ratcliff
Listeners to this series have already heard two broadcasts by the Archbishop of York. These were in a sense introductory and were concerned with ' The Nature of Worship'. This afternoon the Rev E C Ratcliff will select an appropriate date in the first thousand years of .the Church's history. From this date he will work backwards to indicate the origins and development of Christian worship, and forwards by showing what elements in worship at the time of his selected period contain the germs of subsequent variations.

: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE *

Appeal on behalf of the Royal National Life-boat Institution, by Coxwain Henry BIogg , G.C., B.E.M.
Among the many brave men who are coxswains of Britain's life-boats none has had a more notable record than that of Coxwain Henry Blogg. He joined the crew of the Cromer life-boat 48 years ago and has been its coxwain for the last 32 years. Three times he has won the Gold Medal for gallantry of the Royal National Life-boat Institution: he has won its silver medal four times. In addition he holds the George' Cross and the British Empire Medal.
In the best of times the work of the life-boats is hazardous, in wartime trebly so. Since this war started the life-boat service has rescued 4,627 people, and is saving two lives for every one that it saved in the last war.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

: BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

Conducted by Sir Adrian Boult
Byron was eagerly read by the young romantics in Germany, as elsewhere, in the first half of last century, and Schumann was among the poet's most enthusiastic admirers. ' Manfred ' appealed to him strongly, and he set some music to it, meant for the most part to accompany the recitation of the poem. Smalt parts of it were laid out for singing, and there are some purely orchestral pieces.
Schumann's idea was to have it performed on the stage, and it has on one or two occasions been given in that way, notably by Liszt at Weimar.

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.
