: ARTHUR CATTERALL

(violin)
Tommaso Antonio Vitali was the son of Giovanni Battista Vitali , and both were famous in their day as composers and violinists. Tommaso was born in Bologna about the middle of the seventeenth century. When Giovanni went to the Duke of Modena in 1674 as his assistant director of music, Tommaso became a member of the court orchestra, and eventually its director. Later he was appointed to the Bologna Academy. The main compositions of both the Vitalis were violin sonatas. In addition to editing many of his father's sonatas, Tommaso has three published volumes of his own sonatas to his credit, but he is now best known for his Chaconne for violin, edited by Ferdinand David.

: EDMUND RUBBRA

Symphony No. 3 played by the BBC Northern Orchestra, conducted by Clarence Raybould
Edmund Rubbra , whose Fourth Symphony was recently given its first per- formance at the Proms, is now at the height of his powers. He is certainly one of the outstanding figures in the music of our time. As a symphomst he has certain affinities with Brahms, notably in his fondness for contrapuntal texture, restrained orchestration, imposing musical architecture, and, perhaps above all. sincerity and seriousness of purpose.
His Symphony No. 3 achieved a great success on its first performance in Manchester last year. In writing of it, A. J. B. Hutchings claims that the work will be popular because Rubbra ' is like a speaker or poet whose most impassioned utterances are fashioned from the vernacular of household and trade

: 'GIBBON JOINS THE HOME GUARD '

Local colours for a great historian. An incident described by V. S. Pritchett , with Ernest Thesiger as Gibbon. Produced by Stephen Potter When his son was twenty-two the elder Gibbon secured him a commission in the Hampshire Militia ; for two and a half years the future historian served with exemplary patience and devotion to duty, managing to write his first book (in French) in the intervals of drilling his men and composing letters for his senior officers. At the end of the war he again left England for a while ; in 1764, at Rome, while ' musing amid thd ruins of the Capitol he formed the first project of his masterpiece, ' The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.' This work he actually began to write in 1772; before its completion at Lausanne in 1787 he had twice been a Member of Parliament. He finally returned to England in 1793, and died during the following year.

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.
