THAÏs, one of Massenet's most successful operas, dates from 1894. The text is based on the novel by Anatole France. It has been occasionally performed at Covent Garden during the Summer season, but not in recent years. The Meditation from the opera, however, has always been a popular item in concert programmes.

: 'ARTISTS AT WORK '—IV

Painting '—A Dialogue between Mr. STANLEY CASSON and Mr. ALBERT RUTH-ERSTON
THE name of Albert Rutherston is best know, perhaps, as that of a designer of charming book illustrations. One of the editions of The Week-End Book, for example, was graced by many exquisite decorations from his pen. He is also an authority on decorative painting as applied to the theatre, and some of his designs for stage settings are to be Been in the various public galleries. But those who have had the good fortune to study under his direction, either at the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts or at Oxford, where he has been Ruskin Master of Drawing since 1929, know him also as a first-rnte teacher, with definite ideas about art and an unusual lucidity in expressing them. This evening Mr. Stanley Casson invites him to follow other distinguished artists in explaining his views and methods to the listening public.

SIR JOHN McEWEN was born in Glasgow in 1868. He took his degree at Glasgow University, and came to London in 1891 to continue his music studies at the Royal Academy of -Music, of which in Jater years he was to become Principal in succession to Sir Alexander Mac kenzie, a fellow Scotsman. He was made a professor of the R.A.M. in 1898, and was offered the Principalship in 1924. His compositions are mainly orchestral and chamber music, and it is by his quartets that he is best known. But even these are not as well known as they should be, for McEwen has never worried much about securing performances of his works and attracting public attention to them-a rare quality in a modern composer. He has written fourteen quartets, of which the one now to be performed, the eighth, is the most popular. It was written in the South of France— hence the title ' Biscay '-and records such impressions as, in the first movement, the wild, wind-swept shore of the Bay; in the second, the solitude of the Dunes; and, in the third, the cheery life of the Biscay oyster-gatherers.

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.
