Councillor Gerald W. Crawford , J.P., is a prominent figure in Edinburgh's musical life, particularly as conductor of the Edinburgh Professional Orchestra. His compositions include several operas, symphonies, suites, and rhapsodies. The score of ' Macbeth,' a symphonic poem after Shakespeare's play, contains a number of quotations that act as a rough guide to the music. These appear in the following order : (1) ‘ When shall we three meet again ; in thunder, lightning, or in rain ' ; (2) ' What's the business, that such a hideous trumpet call to parley ' ; (3) ' Fair is foul, and foul is fair ; hover through the fog and filthy air ' ; (4) ' All hail, Macbeth, thou shalt be King hereafter ' ; (5) ' Glamis thou art, and Cawdor, and shalt bo what thou art promis'd. Yet do I fear thy nature ' ; (6) ' I go, and it is done ; the bell invites me. Hear it not Duncan ; for it is a knel! that summons thee to Heaven or Hell ' ; (7) ' I have done the deed. Didst thou hear a noise ? ' ; (8) Methought I heard a voice cry, sleep no more ! Macbeth does murder sleep -the innocent sleep ' ; (9) ' Here lies Duncan, his silvery skin lac'd with his golden blood.'

Alexander Tansman was born in Poland in 1900 but now lives in Paris. He has a considerable quantity of compositions to his credit, including piano pieces and orchestral works, all of which are decidedly modern in style and express a strong individuality. His ' Triptyque ' for string orchestra is free from silly eccentricities and is rhythmically vigorous and definitely melodious in a straightforward manner. Although the composer exploits atonality he does so with excellent effect.

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.
