: BBC ORCHESTRA

Conducted by Clarence Raybould. Margaret Good (piano)
(First performance)
Grace Williams , who comes from Barry, South Wales, is orle of the most distinguished Welsh composers. She studied with Vaughan Williams at the Royal College of Music and under Egon Wellesz in Vienna. The first performance of one of her orchestral works at the National Eisteddfod at Bangor in 1931' brought her public recognition. Although most of her music is modem in idiom it has a decided Welsh flavour, as for example her settings of the old oxen songs of Glamorgan, and her folk dances for orchestra based on old Welsh tunes. The Sinfonia Concertante was written in Lincolnshire (where the London School at which she teaches has been since the war), and during the holidays at Barry. It was completed in June 1941.

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.
