: LONDON STUDIO PLAYERS

Conducted by Michael Krein , with George Pizzey (baritone)
George Pizzey , who has been broadcasting for upwards of twenty years, studied with Eugene Goossens , the late Professor Frederic King , and the late Victor Beigel. He has a repertoire that includes not only the bulk of the standard compositions, but a wide range of the more scholarly and difficult works by composers of yesterday and to-day.
Pizzey was for a time the ' mystery straight singer ' with Henry Hall during that band-leader's first BBC season in 1932. He has appeared in television and also before the microphone and on the concert platform with the Barrington Quartet.

: DOHNANYI

String Quartet in D flat, Op. 15 played by the Stratton String Quartet Dohnanyi, who represents the conservative element at its best in Hungarian music, has written three string quartets, the second of which, Op. 15, in D flat, was published in 1907. It reveals, says Tovey,
' the full power of Dohnanyi's art, and, amongst other things, the attainment of an artistic fusion of what may be called Wagnerian or symphonic-poem movement with the essentials of sonata style '.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
