: The Orchestra and its Instruments: 1: Strings

Philip Thornton

This is the first of six fortnightly talks to be given by Philip Thornton. They will consist of a description of the instruments that go to make up a modern orchestra and they will trace their history from primitive times. It is hoped that these illustrated talks will encourage an interest in orchestral music and will help the viewer to pick out the various instruments of the orchestra. In this, the first talk, Philip Thornton will deal with the stringed components, giving examples of original stringed instruments.

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.
