: BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Conductor, Charles Groves
Phyllis Sellick (piano)
The first movement of Schumann's Piano Concerto, composed in 1841, was intended at first to stand alone as a fantasy. Four years later the other two movements were added to complete the concerto as we know it now. It is one of the most popular concertos for the instrument. The criticism that Schumann was not successful in writing music on a large scale is disproved by this work. Both construction and orchestration are remarkably clear and attractive. The solo part not only exploits keyboard virtuosity, but is full of those poetic and deeply expressive qualities so characteristic of all Schumann's music.

: Ernest Milton and Irene Worth in 4 THE TREE'

(‘L’Arbre*) by Jean Dutourd
English version by Lothian Small and E. J.King Bull
Production by E. J. KingBull
This is less a play than a glittering debate by a young French writer, about Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. M. Dutourd gives his own version of that historic tenancy in a way that would amaze the authors of the Book of Genesis: he deals with such matters as Original Sin, Predestination, the Fall, the nature of God, Man, and the Devil, in a way that is light and witty as well as serious and searching. Eve is shown as a vain flibbertigibbet, Archangel Gabriel as a windy old majordomo, and deep arguments about ethics mix with irreverent asides about the boredom of listening to eternal church music in heaven. It is rather as though Anatole France had collaborated on a play by Andre Obey , since it has something of the quiet, subtle, deadly irony of the one writer, and a touch of the other's sophisticated simplicity in dealing with a Bible subject.

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.
