: Programme Summary; followed by: Guila Bustabo (violin)

Guila Bustabo, a sixteen-year-old girl violinist, made her debut in this country in 1934 with such success that she was said by the critics fully to have justified Kreisler's prophecy that she would one day be one of the world's greatest violinists.
She is the daughter of a Franco Italian father, himself a professional violinist; her mother is a native of Bohemia. Her first appearance at a concert with orchestra was at four years of age. Most of her subsequent career has been passed in America; her fame runs from East to West of that continent.
She is now a mature artist. Her repertory is extensive, but she excel as an interpreter of the music of Brahms and Beethoven. Since her first appearance in England she has regularly given recitals and concerts in London and the provinces.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
