: Duke Ellington and his Famous Orchestra

Duke Ellington, the famous American coloured dance-band leader and composer/arranger, is now on his first visit to this country, under the auspices of Jack Hylton. Tonight listeners all over the country are enabled to hear the first direct broadcast of this famous band from the studio in England. A relay of the band from New York was included in the Birthday Week programmes last November. Ellington has a dual title to fame: his original orchestrations and arrangements for the dance music played by his band, and his original compositions in the jazz idiom, notably Creole Rhapsody, Mood Indigo, and Hot and Bothered.

: A Symphony Concert

SCANDINAVIAN PROGRAMME
THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA (Section B)
(Leader, ARTHUR CATTERALL)
Conducted by J. L. MOWINCKEL
Sinfonie Singuliere .............. Fr. Berwald
1. Allegro fuocoso; 2. Adagio, Scherzo: Allegro assai Adagio ; 3. Finale : Presto
The Berwald family, a large one, was musically important in Stockholm in the first half of last century. Two members stood out above the others-Johann, a violinist, who was famous all over Europe at the age of ten, and had three daughters, all singers of repute; and Franz Adolf , Johann's nephew, the composer of this symphony. In his youth, Franz went to Vienna and acquired a reputation as a composer. Ho might have had a like early success in Stockholm if his uncle had been a better conductor, and he was past fifty before his native city had got his true measure.
Johan Severin Svendsen , the Scandinavian composer who figures in the programmes of orchestral concerts mainly with his Norwegian Rhapsodies, of which he wrote four, the brilliant Carnival in Paris, and his Romance, beloved of violinists, was born in 1840 and died in 1911. He was the son of a military bandmaster, and was, in his turn, an army bandmaster before he was twenty. He left. the army at twenty-one, and for the rest of his life held many distinguished posts in Germany and Scandinavia, both as conductor and teacher. He was in England in 1888 conducting one of his Symphonies at a Philharmonic Concert.

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.
