: A Pianoforte Interlude

by ERNEST LUSH WILLIAM BAINES died at the age of twenty-three in 1922. He was a remarkable boy. Up till two years before he died he had never heard a string quartet or a symphony orchestra (how impossible in these days of broadcasting), and yet, being self-taught, he had actually written chamber works and orchestral music of astonishingly fine quality. He did not live long enough, of course, to leave much behind, but what he did leave (mostly piano music) showed such rare promise and is so mature in form and beauty, that the early death of Baines ranks as part of that tragedy of early deaths from which British music has suffered in recent years.

The Pavilion, Bournemouth
Symphony Concert No. 24 of the 39th
Winter Series
ORCHESTRA
ROGER SACHEVERELL COKE'S Pianoforte Concerto No. 2 in E minor was written in 1933, when the composer was twenty years of age, and has so far received four performances, the first being at the Pump Room, Bath. Mr. Coke left Eton three years ago and has since established himself as a composer and pianist. He has already a number of compositions, including chamber music, to his credit.
The Concerto to be played this afternoon consists of the usual three movements, the music of which, unlike a great deal of contemporary music, is romantic in appeal. The first movement, Fantasy, opens with an introduction in which a motive is heard which becomes one of the principal themes in the movement and makes an appearance both in the ' Romance ' and the ' Caprice '. Thus, the whole work is imbued with a feeling of continuity.

'The City of London-Banking'
Professor T. E. G. GREGORY , D.Sc.
IN ms BROADCAST this evening Professor T. E. G. Gregory will point out that banks are not the mysterious things some people would have us think, and that they are far from remote from the lives of the ordinary citizen.
This talk will qeal with the ' Big
Five ', and what they do, and such an investigation opens up a number of important questions: The relation of the commercial banks to the Bank of England, the connection of the specialised money market both to the banks and ' the Bank '. What makes the whole system hang together ? What is the precise place of the Bank of England in the national life ?
This clears the ground for Professor
Gregory's talk on Insurance and Investment next Wednesday.

Sir William Bragg, O.M., K.B.E., F.R.S.
Many of the colours of Nature depend on the use of 'dyes'. One of the most universal of these is chlorophyll, which is responsible for the green of vegetation. The colours of flowers depend mainly on a class of natural dyes called 'anthocyanins.' The colours of the sky and the haloes round the moon are caused by fine particles floating in the air, or by the molecules of the air itself.
This is a synopsis of Sir William Bragg's talk tonight.

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

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.
