: Music on 2: Andre Previn and the London Symphony Orchestra

A few years ago, amidst a blaze of publicity, Andre Previn and Mia Farrow came to settle in England. They now live with their twin sons in a quiet village in an old house surrounded by woods - an idyllic refuge from their well publicised careers of international conductor and film star. Tonight Previn talks to Herbert Chappell and plays some of the music which has influenced his development as a conductor and helped form his attitudes and musical tastes including:
Brahms Academic Festival Overture
Walton Scapino
Mozart Larghetto (Piano Concerto in c minor, K 491)
Copland El Salon Mexico


Subject/Pianist: Andre Previn
Musicians: The London Symphony Orchestra
Orchestra Leader: John Georgiadis

: The World About Us: People of the Seal: Eskimo Summer

The last bone peg is hammered home with a stone; the last sinew stitch drawn tight in the caribou skin. The kayak is complete, and a stone-age craft is launched. The Place is Pelly Bay in the Canadian Arctic: the year, 1960. Even as late as this, the People of the Seal were still following their ancient way of life.
Now they, together with their harsh, simple life and their incredible resourcefulness, have been swept away into civilised settlements. But not before a Canadian camera team had shot nearly 100 hours of film.
The result is a film which reflects not just the actions but also the outlook of a vanished race. So a programme that starts out as a succession of fascinating pictures slowly turns into something more -the understanding of another way of life.
A BBC/National Film Board of Canada co-production

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.

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.
