: GERALDO and his GAUCHO TANGO ORCHESTRA

The Tango is a dance of mixed origin, coming, according to different accounts, from the Argentine or Mexico. However, though the movements associated with the dance—at least in its earlier forms-are Negro in character, the music has a distinct Spanish rhythm and closely resembles the Habanera, thongh played half as fast agahi. It is said to have come first to Paris as a rival to the waltz, which was then at the height of its craze, and latej to England.

WINIFRED RADFORD (Soprano)
THE BROSA STRING QUARTET
(Brosa-Wise-Rubens-Manucci)
When Wolf decided to set a poem—or, rathev, when the poet by seizing Wolf's imagination had in a sense decided for him-he first satur. ated himself with the meaning and spirit of the verse to an extent of experiencing a form of hypnotic suggestion. In this state of clairvoyance he would work feverishly and almost without effort, as Schubert was known to be in the habit of doing. When Wolf was in the grip of a. bout of composition, he would scarcely stop to eat or to sleep, and could not be persuaded to leave his work. So wholly was he possessed by a fancied poem that, with little or no thought of composition, the music would come to him while he slept, and in the morning the song would pass from his pen to paper
. rapidly, unerringly, and an its complete and final shape. Then, so deeply did he feel the music he had written, that when the songs he had been engaged on were completed, he would play them to his friends, laughing and crying as he played.

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
