: TURINA

Violin Sonata played by Albert Sammons (violin) and Edie Miller (piano), on gramophone records
Although Joaquin Turina is known in this country by his colourful vand thoroughly Spanish pieces, such as ' The Procession or the Rocio ' and the three Fantastic Dances, his chief interest is in .chamber music and I pure ' music in general. Born in 1882, Turina studied with d'Indy in Paris for eight or nine years, and so acquired the solid classical outlook of Cesar Franck. This Violin Sonata, however (composed in 1930), is unmistakably Spanish in colouring and is closer in spirit to Ravel than to Franck.

Of all the brass bands associated with big industrial concerns, Foden's is perhaps the best known, its remarkable competitive achievements having ensured this. Twice in its career the band has done the hat trick ' at the Crystal Palace, winning the premier trophy in 1932, 1933, and 1934, and again in" 1936, 1937, and 1938. This run of triumphs was in addition to an earlier victory in 1910. Then, nearer home at Belle Vue, Manchester, the band has won the championship there on no fewer than eight occasions. Founded by the late Edwin Foden in 1900, to celebrate the relief of Mafeking, the band is composed of employees of the Foden's Motor Works, Sandbach. Cheshire.

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.
