Tonight they will discuss the differences in the wages, hours of work, and training between the two callings in the two countries. Individual first-hand accounts such as these give a vivid impression of the day-to-day conditions of life in foreign lands. They have an authentic, undoctored air and the tang of truth ; moreover, they make first-class broadcasting of their kind.

: Serenade

ERNEST LUSH (Pianoforte)
THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Wind Instruments of Section D)
Conducted by VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON
The word Serenade is derived from the Italian, and means 'evening song.' Music in the form of a serenade was originally supposed to be sung or played at night in the open air, and as one would expect, such music must be of a light character; therefore nothing could be more apt than the adaptation of dance forms. Consequently, the orchestral serenade developed into a kind of suite with movements mostly dance-like in character and form. Mozart's Serenade in C minor for wind instruments is a good example of the early style of Serenade. Debussy's elegant and charming Suite Bergamasque may be considered a modem and romantic development of serenade, while in the Little Threepenny Bit Music for Brass orchestra, which is taken from the incidental music in Kurt Weill 's jazz opera, we have an up-to-date serenade based on the popular jazz rhythms of today.

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.
