: Concert Hour BBC WELSH ORCHESTRA

Conductor, Mansel Thomas
Bronwen Jones (piano)
Mozart's Piano Concerto in G was composed in Vienna in 1784 and the autograph is dedicated to Senora Barbara Player, a pianist whose name would now be otherwise forgotten. She was an accomplished artist, daughter of a business man in Vienna, and Mozart speaks of her in one of his letters of that year to his father. The concerto is one of three of which Mozart himself was unable to select his own favourite. He spoke of all three as ' concertos that make one perspire.' and he was keen to learn which of them would best please his father and his sister.

A weekly musical adventure introducing prominent soloists in the modem rhythmic idiom
Tonight: Stephane Grappelly the French violinist
Programme introduced by Dennis Moonan

: HENRY WOOD PROMENADE CONCERTS

I Say, heart, what will the future bring, sings the choir at the opening of These Things Shall Be.' The answer comes
* ... a loftier race
Than e'er the world hath known, shall rise
With flame of freedom in their souls And light of science in their eyes.'
The work, which was commissioned by the BBC, is a setting for baritone, chorus, and orchestra of some lines by John Addington Symonds; it was first performed at the time of the Coronation in May 1937. It is among Ireland's most splendid utterances and seldom fails to make a deep impression whenever it is heard. Harold Rutland

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.

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.
