Overture, Anacreon ...............
Cherubini OHEUUBINI 'S grasp of contrapuntal technique was so profound as probably never to have been equalled since his day. As a child, when he should have been at school, and probably was, he was writing masses, oratorios, cantatas, and all kinds of works. He wrote his first opera at eighteen, and thereafter wrote little else than operatic music.
Scant justice has been done to this very gifted man, but it must be confessed that his attitude to the beautiful in music, which he deliberately sacrificed to technique and grammatical purity, did not endear him to the operatic public, at least after his death. Beethoven, however, thought very highly of his music, and was, to some extent, influenced by it. What, however, did real damage to Cherubini was the advent of the comic opera composers, such as Boieldieu and Auber, who inaugurated an era of high spirits in which operas so devoid of humour as Cherubini's could scarcely hope to survive.

Orlando Gibbons, a composer of genius worthy to be grouped with Byrd and Purcell as one of the three greatest English composers of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, was born in 1583 and died at Canterbury in 1625. He was appointed a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal, and later organist of Westminster Abbey.
His fantasies for viols and his madrigals are amongst the finest examples of his age.
Thomas Morley was a pupil of Byrd. He too, was of the Chapel Royal, as were, of course, practically all the best musicians of those days Later, he was appointed organist of St. Paul's Cathedral. He wrote a famous book of instruction called 'A Plaine and Easy Introduction to Practicall Musique,' and a number of aires and madrigals, many of which are still very popular with choral societies.

: Mr. T. W. RUSSELL, C.M.G.: 'Dope'

THE extent of the international traffic in illicit drugs is little realized in England, but so widespread is this pernicious evil that the League of Nations has established an annual Narcotics Conference to expose instances of drug smuggling wherever they occur, with tl;e aim of mobilizing public opinion in all countiies.
Mr. Rnssell is Director of the Egyptian Narcotics Bureau and Commandant of the Cairo City Police. He has some astounding tales to tell of the devices used by international smugglers of heroin, morphine, cocaine and hasheesh, particularly in central European or Near Eastern countries where the drug laws are loosely administered or non-existent. Contraband trade in drugs is estimated to amount to twenty-one tons a year.

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.
