: The Foundations of Music: Mendelssohn's Organ Music

Played by Dr. Harold Darke
Relayed from St. Margaret's, Westminster
This is Dr. Darke's birthday, and wireless listeners will certainly be with us as we offer him our sincere good wishes; he was born in London forty-three years ago. As a scholar of the Royal College of Music, for organ and composition, with Sir Walter Parratt and Sir Charles Stanford as professors, he won the Tagore Gold Medal, proving himself to be an exceptionally 'gifted student. For ten years after that he was assistant organist to Sir Walford Davies at the Temple Church, going from there to St. Michael's, Cortihill. His enthusiasm soon made it the centre of far-reaching musical interests, not only by organ recitals in which all Bach's organ music has been played in one series, and a comprehensive survey of English music in many others, ranging from the Elizabethans to our own time, but by his fine work as choirmaster. The St. Michael's singers, a choir recruited chiefly from City offices, founded and trained by him, has given notable festival performances, embracing almost every school of music from Bach to Parry, Vaughan Williams, and the modern men. It was he, too, who founded the City of London Choral Union, to present music on a larger scale.
His own compositions, serious in character for tho most part, include impressive organ music, as well as more than one big work for voices and orchestra, many part songs and music for church services. He is a Fellow, a member of the Council, and an Examiner of the Royal College of Organists and a Professor at the Royal College of Music.

: Can Democracy Survive?: V

Mr. Leonard Woolf: "Do we want to become Gods or Bees?"
Under an amusing and slightly mysterious title, Mr. Woolf contrasts this evening the two main tendencies between which modern society is torn. The democratic ideal is that of the civilized individual, the industrial ideal that of the beehive. There are tendencies to make machines our ideal, to treat efficiency as the authority for liberty. Mr. Woolf discusses these tendencies, and treats of the enormous growth in governmental and social organization—for example, the modern Civil Service.

: A Recital of Gramophone Records

By Christopher Stone.
The two most important recent events in the gramophone world have been the reduction in prices, which especially affects the 'celebrity,' or red label class of record, and the issue of a 'Connoisseur Catalogue' by the Gramophone Company (His Master's Voice). This catalogue contains no fewer than 229 new records of celebrities, including Chaliapino, Melchoir, Paderewski, Casals, Gerhardt, and the Flonzeley Quartet, as well as a large number of orchestral works by famous orchestras; and the very size of the enterprise is in danger of bewildering the music lover, who will be torn this way and that by the conflicting claims of favourite works, favourite performers, and novelties.
Mr. Stone, in confining his programme this evening to the H.M.V. Connoisseur Catalogue, will be able only to touch the fringe of the matter, and to give a few single sides of works which occupy perhaps four or five double-sided discs. If those who are interested in the recording of classical and operatic music, will procure a copy of the catalogue beforehand, they will be able to trace the omissions, as well as to enjoy the actual excerpts chosen.

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.
