LOUISE MARSHALL (Mezzo-Soprano)
THE PORTLAND STRING QUARTET:
Alan Bartlett (Violin); Ralph Nichol son (Violin); Violet Brough (Viola); Barbara Amor-Wright (Violoncello) 1. The four sleepy golliwogs' dance.-The golliwogs-poor, stiff things !- hated dancing; and t hey were so sleepy! But some horrid, spiteful ' Magician' goaded them with sharp words and a prickly fork. So they danced as best they could, bowed, and ran away.
2. The little girl and the old shepherd.-In the fields and woods the little girl had little else to think of than the flowers and the solitary old shepherd who, among his flocks close by, piped the only scraps of tune he cared for. She often pitied his loneliness.
3. The old shepherd's tale.-Once the old shepherd told her a. tale-of himself years ago, and of his friends. He was not always slow-going and lonely.

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section B)
(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by NIKOLAI MALKO
Nikolai Malko made his first appearance in England with the B.B.C. Orchestra four years ago. He comes to us from Russia, where he is Director of the State Academy of Music and Professor at the Leningrad Conservatoire. His activities, however, are not confined to Russia, for he makes frequent welcome appearances in various cities of Europe. His most recent appearances in London have been early last year at a B.B.C. Symphony Concert and a Concert of Contemporary Music, both of which were broadcast.
Shostakovitch is considered the leader of the younger Russian composers known as the Leningrad group, the members of which ally themselves to the tradition upheld by Rimsky-Korsakov. He has written, amongst other works, two symphonies; a dance tune called ' The Tahiti Trot,' which really is a transcription of the celebrated ' Tea for Two ' ; and an opera, founded on Gogol's humorous story ' The Nose,' from which the Suite now to be played is drawn.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
