: LONDON SUMMER CONCERTS

under the auspices of Allied Governments. Organised by the Royal Philharmonic Society in collaboration with the Concert Society. Eighth concert : London Symphony Orchestra (leader, George Stratton ), conducted by John Barbirolli
From the Royal Albert Hall , London
Debussy's ' L'Apres-midi d'un faune ' is a musical interpretation of a poem by the French poet Stephane Mallarme. It has been said that the poem is so elusive in meaning, so subtle in its refinements of language, that it is practically untranslatable into another tongue. Debussy's is perhaps the only medium suited to an exposition of the poem. The picture is of a faun who, waking at dawn in the forest, tries to recall what happened to him before he fell asleep. His musings are confused with visions of nymphs who spent the afternoon with him and the possibility that the whole thing has been a dream coloured with the music of his own flute.

: FROM THE THEATRE IN WARTIME-9

Robert Morley and others in scenes from ' The Man Who Came to Dinner', by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. (By permission of Firth Shephard). Programme presented by Barbara Burnham
Playing at the Savoy Theatre for what looks like being a record wartime run is this scintillating, crazy play which was written in the first place as a kind of leg-pull for that famous man-about-the-States, Alexander Woollcott. Rude, ruthless, self-confident, and occasionally kind, Sheridan Whiteside turns inside-out the unhappy home in which an accident detains him. So delighted was Woollcott with the play when it was produced in America that he himself acted the part for a short season in New York. A film of The Man Who Came to Dinner, with Monty Woolley in the part of Sheridan Whiteside , has just been released. This performance and that of Robert Morley should make interesting comparison.

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.
